I may be wrong in this assertion, I can't recollect where I read it, it is not in scripture though.
But what is scriptural is Jesus selecting Andrew before Peter, yet Peter's name is at the head of all the biblical lists of the apostles. (Matt. 10:2, Mark 3:16, Luke 6:13, Acts 1:13). So we have three gospel writers and St. Paul all placing Peter's name first in the list of Apostles; making it impossible to be just some coincidental, meaningless arrangement.
Also don't forget, right at the beginning of his calling, Christ told Peter that he would be called "Cephas", thus singling him out for his future role as the "Rock".
