Oliver Luck is the NCAA's Executive Vice President of Regulatory Affairs. Prior to this position, Luck was the Athletic Director at West Virginia University. He was an NFL quarterback and is the father of Indianapolis Colts’ quarterback, Andrew Luck.

In this video, Luck talks about coaching athletes through mistakes. He recommends that coaches work with young kids to teach them the skill of flushing mistakes because, "there is no athlete that goes through his/her career playing perfectly."
