Boise State Quarterback (2007-2011)
Efficiency. Excellence. Precision. Surgeon. Ambassador. Winner. All words that describe one of the greatest players to not only wear the Bronco blue and orange, but in the history of college football.
Kellen Moore became the first freshman in Boise State history to start a season opener when he did so in 2008. In just his third career start, Moore earned National Player of the Week honors, throwing for 386 yards and three touchdowns in leading the Broncos to a 37-32 upset road win at Oregon. The honors and accolades followed in bunches for the next four years as Moore helped push Boise State to unprecedented national recognition.
His career ended with an amazing 50-3 record as a starting quarterback, shattering the NCAA all-time wins record for a quarterback, previously held by Colt McCoy of Texas with 45 wins. Moore exited Boise State with nearly every single season or career passing record, including total offense, yards, completions, completion percentage, touchdowns, pass efficiency and lowest interception ratio.
Additionally, he left a lasting mark on the NCAA record book, with the most wins by a quarterback and ranking in the top five all-time in FBS history in touchdown passes, passing yards, pass efficiency, completion percentage and lowest interception percentage. He led the nation in pass efficiency as a junior in 2010, and finished among the top three nationally in 2009 and 2011. Moore is also one of just 12 players in college football history with three consecutive top 10 finishes in the Heisman voting, and became Boise State’s first Heisman Trophy finalist in 2010 when he joined Cam Newton, LaMichael James and Andrew Luck in New York City.
Moore earned was twice named WAC Offensive Player of the Year (2009 & 2010), and was honored for the same award by the Mountain West Conference (2011). In 2011, he was named the Quarterback of the Year by the Touchdown Club of Columbus for the second straight season, while being recognized as a finalist for the Unitas Award and Maxwell Award and a semi-finalist for the Davey O’Brien Award. In all, he earned a spot on 11 different All-America teams, including first team All-America honors by ESPN.com, SI.com and CBSSports.com in 2009, and first team honors by the Football Writers Association of America in 2010. Moore was also a four time conference All-Academic selection and earned his bachelor’s degree from Boise State in just three and a half years.
