Colt McCoy is a current quarterback for the Washington Redskins. He previously played quarterback for the Cleveland Browns and the San Francisco 49ers. A Texas football star, Colt was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the 2010 NFL Draft. Joining a team with depth at the quarterback position, he served as a backup for his first season before earning an occasional starting spot in 2011. Colt now serves as a backup to the team’s 2012 first-round draft pick Brandon Weeden. Before he joined the NFL, Colt was a college football standout. The Texas native played four years of football for the University of Texas at Austin from 2005-2009. As a Longhorn, he became the starting quarterback for his rookie season and led the team to a 56-7 win over North Texas in the season opener. After that first game, Colt never looked back.
On November 4, 2006, he threw his 27th touchdown pass in a win against Oklahoma State, to take sole possession of the Texas school record for most touchdowns ever thrown by a quarterback in a single season. Subsequently, in the 2006 Alamo Bowl on December 30, Colt threw two touchdowns against University of Iowa to tie Nevada’s David Neill for second place for freshman touchdowns in a single season. Also during the 2006 season, he was named College Football News Big 12 Player of the Year and was named the quarterback to their “All Freshman Team”. In 2008, he set school records for most career touchdown passes, most touchdown passes in a season, most total touchdowns by a Texas player, most career wins, and most career passing yards. In addition to setting passing records, Colt led the team with 561 yards rushing and 11 rushing touchdowns, establishing a reputation as a dual threat quarterback. He was subsequently named the 2008 AP Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year.
Colt won the 2008 Walter Camp Award and was the 2008 Heisman Trophy runner-up. Colt won more games (45) than any quarterback in NCAA Division I history. In his senior year, he won 13 of the top 15 major college player awards including quarterback of the year, offensive player of the year and outstanding football player of the year.
