There's still a lot of the kid in him (the way he laughs). Not full of himself.

Andrew is utterly genuine - humble, articulate, smart, warm-hearted. He is the real deal. It was a pleasure to talk with him as he reflected on his time at Stanford and looked ahead to a new phase of life with the Colts.

Great interview. What is remarkable through the interview is the holistic view we get of Andrew, but also his family and the community. I thought it was delightful how you lifted up his history and studies at Stanford to round him out. Again, what a gracious guy, who leads but also cares about his teammates, classmates and family.
