When Quinn Kaehler leads the Aztecs' offense onto the field against Oregon State coach outlet purse on Saturday, he will be SDSU's first walk on starting quarterback since at least the post WWII era.
Along with Texas Tech freshman Baker Mayfield, Kaehler is one of only two walk on FBS level starting quarterbacks in the country.
That's two out of 123 programs.
In a business where quarterback play can make or break a team, and college coaches scour every gridiron in the country coach official outlet hoping to find cannon arms and freakshow athletes, Kaehler went unnoticed.
Despite his impressive stats at Diablo Valley College, the intangibles his coaches raved about, and his own self belief, he never got a top level scholarship offer.
Yet, those who watched him come off the bench against Ohio State and resuscitate the Aztecs' misfiring offense to the tune of 216 passing yards, a touchdown and a 61 percent completion rate couldn't help but think, "He's pretty good. Where's this kid been?"
Right under their noses, as it turns out.
The Aztecs were always Kaehler's first choice. But it took a while for him catch their eye.
"He's always flown under the radar," said Robert Kaehler, Quinn's father. "It's been his history. He's always had to come from behind. But that's his style."
Quinn had no Division I offers coming out of California (San Ramon) High School in 2010. At 6 foot 2, coach store outlet 175 pounds, with unremarkable arm strength, average measureables and nondescript stats, Quinn didn't catch anyone's attention.
His high school team played a run heavy offense, and as a one year starter who finished with 1,538 passing coach chicago premium outlets yards, Quinn didn't attract interest from any FBS coaches.
Playing in a quarterback strong league featuring the likes of Oregon State's Sean Mannion, Boise State's Joe Southwick, and Nick Montana Joe Montana's son who now plays for Tulane didn't help his case either.
"He wasn't physically developed yet," said Ben McEnroe, Quinn's first cousin and mentor, who is also the head football coach at California Lutheran University. "A lot of people don't want to take a chance on a guy who needs a couple of years to develop in the weight room."
Or, as Quinn's Diablo Valley College coach Mike Darr says, "There were safer picks than him. Quinn suffered from not having the flash that jumps out at people."
Still, Quinn wasn't ready to be done with football after high school.
An academic high flyer with a 3.9 coach factory outlet online reviews GPA, he was drawn to San Diego State's top notch finance program. So he enrolled at SDSU and tried out for the football team.
This was the fall of 2010, Brady Hoke's second year. The Aztecs had Ryan Lindley, Jake Bernards, and Adam Dingwell in the stable. They told Kaehler he was a decent quarterback but they didn't need any more signal callers.
