Gardner Minshew high school highlights
Jacksonville Jaguars' starting quarterback led Brandon to a Mississippi state title.
The path for Gardner Minshew
to the NFL and social media darling has definitely been a road less traveled.
But the Jacksonville Jaguars' polished, pinpoint starting rookie quarterback certainly showed signs of promise coming out of Brandon (Miss.)
He led the Bulldogs to a 6A Mississippi title game as a junior and a South 6A championship his senior year while throwing for 6,231 yards and 55 touchdowns (eight interceptions) those two seasons combined. He completed 429-of-710 passes during that span when the Bulldogs went a combined 23-4.
At 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, Minshew was rated by 247Sports
the 70th best pro-style quarterback from the Class of 2015 and 1,837th top prospect overall.
There have been longer shots to make it to the NFL, but Minshew's travels through Northwest Mississippi Community College to East Carolina University to Washington State were far and wide. Clearly, he's arrived at the pinnacle of his sport and craft.
