No. 8 – Oliver Luck

To many, he’s simply Andrew’s dad.

Oliver Luck’s son, Andrew, is the star quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts, but the elder statesman of the family had star potential back in his playing days.

The Cleveland native was a three-year starter (1978-1981 for the Mountaineers and tossed for 5,765 total yards in that span. He is No. 6 all-time in passing touchdowns (43), No. 4 in pass completions (466), No. 3 in pass attempts (911) and No. 5 in passing yards. Luck played in the final game at Old Mountaineer Field, and scored a touchdown in the 24-17 win over rival Pitt. Luck also helped usher in a new era at WVU when Don Nehlen began his two decade career leading the Mountaineers in 1980.
