Today seems like a good day to remind all of the college football fans out there that Chuck Ealey still holds the longest winning streak for a starting quarterback. Trevor Lawrence would've had a shot at the streak had he won last night!
After completing an undefeated 27-0 record in High School in Portsmouth Ohio, Chuck received a Football scholarship to the University of Toledo. While getting his degree in Business Economics, Chuck, as Quarterback, led his UT Rockets to a record breaking 35-0 college record. Despite this record, Chuck was passed over by the NFL draft as Quarterback. Chuck chose to go to the CFL where the only thing that mattered was his ability. In 1972 he led the Hamilton Tigercats to a Grey Cup Championship, winning MVP as Quarterback.
Although Chuck is the only undefeated quarterback in College Football history, he is not in the College Football Hall of Fame. Support the cause at InductChuck.com.
Should we bring back our Chuck Ealey shirt?!
