Luck himself rewrote history at Stanford. He set and broke many records. These records included season and career touchdown passes, season and career completion percentage, and season and career efficiency passing. Andrew was the academic All-American of the year 2011. 

Andrew Luck went pro in 2012. He was the number one overall pick in the NFL draft of that year by the Indianapolis Colts. During his seven years NFL career, he threw over 23,600 yards and set many passing records. Luck was a four-time pro ball selection. He retired at the young age of 29. 

Andrew Luck after retirement 

After dealing with various injuries and a pretty gnarly calf issue, Luck decided to retire for good. He was dealing with these injuries all throughout his last few seasons. Luck shocked the Football world when he announced his retirement before the start of the 2019 season. 

After retirement, Luck has stayed away from the limelight. His wife Nicole gave birth to their child, Lucy, in November 2019. 

The Notre Dame game might have not been the best one to come out of retirement for. Notre Dame won the game in a pretty dominating fashion. Stanford did not get a chance to take the lead all throughout the game. The final result of the match was 14-45. The honorary captain might have some rust because he has never played a game after retiring.
