Will It Be Luck for the Cardinals This Season?

It seems that the Stanford Cardinals have hinged their success for your 2010 football conference games on quarterback Andrew Luck.

Andrew may be the son of a former football pro. Oliver, Andrew's father, was quarterback for your West Virginia Mountaineers and later became NFL quarterback for your Houston Oilers. Andrew was a well sought-after recruit throughout his high school days. He eventually chose Stanford around the other schools. Following an impressive first 12 months in the team, he was honored with the position of starting quarterback. He won his job around Tavita Pritchard. He was the second Stanford freshman to obtain that. The first was Chad Hutchinson who was similarly appointed in 1996.

2010, on the other hand may perhaps well be his very last collegiate season but in Coach Jim Harbaugh's opinion leaving the team for an NFL draft require not be Andrew's only choice. He plans to discuss the matter at length with Luck following the 2010 games. It is apparent that the coach will try his finest to come at a compromise resolution to that eventuality.

In 2009, Luck had been a crucial factor in the win from the Cardinals around USC and Oregon which made eligible for your Sun Bowl competition. Luck missed that game due to a finger injury that had to be operated on.

In very last year's season, he threw 2,575 yards. Out of 288 attempts he was in a position to complete 162 passes and only had 4 interceptions. In spite of his successes, Andrew may be the type of athlete who is quicker to see his faults than to bask in his achievements. When both he and Gerhart were working on the team's offense, he was in a position to develop his personal type while Toby was pulling the team through.

Constantly willing to learn, he gradually matured his personal strategies for leadership. With Gerhart gone, and him as leader, he feels the require to focus on what he desires to enhance as opposed to to work on what is already effective. A perfectionist deep inside who has the instinct for your game from his father, he prefers to hear criticism as opposed to praise.

Andrew is a distinctive combination of everything that it desires to lead the team. He has a strong arm, he has the pace, the type, the intelligence along with the leadership potential that his team required in very last year's games. The experience he gained has developed in him the stance of a professional. His playing was quicker, a lot more powerful and a lot more perceptive at the end of very last 12 months. He is still working on improving his power and pace as well as his knack for making excellent game decisions when and where these are required.

Although his spring training game was not precisely a perfect 1, he had improved markedly around very last 12 months. Coach Jim Harbaugh, like all the rest from the Cardinals are banking on Andrew to do what he did for your team very last 12 months once a lot more for 2010. The coach is quick to call him the finest quarterback in the country and it seems Andrew is about to join the ranks from the team's finest quarterbacks ever.
