Not so long ago, the city of Houston was a QB wasteland. Running backs literally ran this town.
Well, times are a-changing and Houston can proudly wear the moniker of… Q-ston.
First came the legendary VY – Vince Young of Madison back in 2001. He has been the talk of HISD ever since he wore the Marlin light blue and white. His legend grew as the dual-threat QB won a National Championship for the Texas Longhorns. He was the runner up in the Heisman race. He was the NFL Rookie of the Year in 2006 and a two-time Pro Bowler before his ride came to an end in Canada in 2017.
Then there was Andrew Luck in 2008. The Stratford signal-caller lived up to the hype at Stanford, nearly winning the Heisman Trophy, before becoming a household-name in the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts. He could eventually be a Hall of Famer.
