STANFORD, Calif. — David Shaw is doing all he can to stump for Andrew Luck to win the Heisman Trophy.
The first-year Stanford coach delivered a visual presentation to reporters Tuesday showcasing Luck's talents and unique play-calling abilities. Photos of the bronze statue and Luck giving a Notre Dame defender the stiff arm — mimicking the Heisman pose — provided the backdrop to Shaw's speech.
While Luck is unanimously projected as the No. 1 overall pick in April's NFL draft, winning college football's most prestigious honor is far less certain. Luck has lifted No. 4 Stanford (11-1, 8-1 Pac-12) to consecutive 11-win seasons for the first time and owns every major school passing record.
Shaw also held a national teleconference with reporters, asking voters to look beyond statistics and study Luck's rare responsibilities.
