What kind of guy is Andrew Luck?

I've looked for features on him, can't find much other than he went to Stanford so he wouldn't be asked for photos or autographs. That can be taken 1 of 2 ways: he's modest and is reluctant to be recognized, which I don't want in a QB, or he's a dick who doesn't care about his supporters, which I also don't want in a QB.

From what I've seen of him in person and on TV he's a good QB but has plenty of room to grow. Sure he has potential to do well but behind a porous line and stone-handed receivers plus Coach ??? he has the potential to mimic Clausen's stats.

I just want to know, aside from he'll be wearing our colors next year, and he's supposed to be Christ Incarnate, what is there to like about him as a person? I find it hard to cheer for a reluctant hero uninterested in fans or anything like that.

Or he just doesnt want to be badgered by a million and a half fans a day at a SEC school, cant blame a guy for wanting a better quality of life. Matt Ryan is the same way along with Joe Flacco, not everyone wants all that attention and hype, apparently hes too good to avoid the hype

Or unlike most football players he gives a fug about his education and went to Stanford to not only play ball but get a quality education. He's an Architectural Design major, not the easiest program to graduate from. I think he's actually on track to graduate a year early as well....

His dad has been as nice a guy as you'd find.

Granted that doesn't always pass down, but it's worth noting.
