NFL Quarterback, Graduated As The Winningest QB in College History
Colt McCoy Bio
Colt McCoy graduated as the winningest quarterback in college history, winning 45 of his 53 starts during a storied four-year career at the University of Texas, from 2006 to 2009. He set numerous school records including the NCAA record for highest single-season completion percentage of 76.7 percent. He is the only quarterback in college football history to win at least ten games for four seasons. In 2010, Colt led the Longhorns to the 2010 BCS national championship game and in 2008 was the Heisman trophy runner-up.
Following his college career at UT, Colt was drafted in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft by the Cleveland Browns and played in eight games during his rookie season. Currently, Colt is the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns and looks forward to leading the Browns organization back to its winning ways.
Colt McCoy has been heavily involved in volunteering with domestic and foreign ministries throughout his life. He has traveled the country sharing his testimony speaking to large audiences on the importance that Christ and the Scripture has had on his life. In 2007, during Colt's Sophomore Year at UT, Colt experienced the ups and downs of being a college quarterback at the University of Texas.
"That was a defining moment for me--in my leadership of the football team, in my walk with Christ, and in my life in general. It was because of God, because of my faith in Him, because of the Scripture I read and my prayers that really got me through that time, and we ended up finishing the season pretty solid on a strong run. At that point I realized that Christ really is in control. Hard work, your teammates, your coaches--that's going to get you a long way, but without Christ you can't go the whole mile."
