Andrew Luck Cleans Up At 2011 College Football Awards Show, Awaits Heisman Trophy Decision

Andrew Luck had an excellent season and was rewarded for his efforts on Thursday night at the College Football Awards Show. In an event that placed Luck against some of the nation's most talented collegiate athletes, the junior quarterback took home multiple awards.

Luck won the Walter Camp Player Of The Year Award, which is given to (you guessed it) the most outstanding player in the nation. The Stanford Cardinal standout beat out Baylor's Robert Griffin III, Houston's Case Keenum, Alabama's Trent Richardson and LSU's Tyrann Mathieu.

He won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, which goes to the nation's most outstanding senior or fourth year quarterback, with candidates judged upon character, citizenship, scholastic achievement, leadership qualities, and athletic accomplishments. The other finalists for the award included Robert Griffin III, Landry Jones of Oklahoma, Kellen Moore of Boise State, and Brandon Weeden of Oklahoma State.

Luck also took home the Maxwell Award, where he beat out Trent Richardson and Kellen Moore once again. He is the second Stanford quarterback to win the award, joining the great Jim Plunkett.

The next (and final) award show is the big one: the Heisman Trophy Presentation. The event will take place on Saturday evening on ESPN and Luck is not the favorite to win the prestigious award.
