Former Clements QB Derek Carr vs. Andrew Luck
It was Dec. 1, 2007, and Carr was a junior starting quarterback for Clements High in Sugar Land, Texas. Luck, a senior for Stratford High in Houston, was not only one of top players in a football-crazed state, but a coveted recruit nationally.
Clements and Carr got the better of Stratford and Luck that day at Galena Stadium, winning 31-27 in the Class 5A Region III semifinals.
Carr led Clements over Stratford by completing 11 of 16 passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns. For Stratford, Luck was 15 of 24 for 166 yards passing and rushed for 94 yards.
The next year, Luck was off to Stanford and Carr’s family moved to Bakersfield, where he played his senior year of high school at Bakersfield Christian.
The two quarterbacks never met before their high school game and still only know each other through reputation.
