Case Keenum

Casey Austin "Case" Keenum (born February 17, 1988 in Abilene, Texas) is the starting quarterback for the Houston Cougars football team. A prolific passer, Keenum has set several school records at the University of Houston, and plays as a redshirt junior. Keenum ranked first nationally in total offense and second in total passing yards for the 2008 college football season. He is currently ranked first nationally in total offense and passing yards, and was a finalist for the 2009 Davey O'Brien Award and Walter Camp Award. He is also the second player in FBS history to have two consecutive 5,000+ passing seasons.

Keenum played football for Wylie High School in Abilene, Texas. During his high school career, he passed for 6,783 yards and 48 touchdowns and rushed for 41 touchdowns and 2,000 yards. Logging 42 starts at quarterback, Keenum posted a career record of 31-11, including a 17-14 victory over Cuero on Dec. 10, 2004 for the Class 3A Division I state championship, Wylie's first and only state title to date. In addition to being recruited by Houston, Keenum was recruited by Baylor, North Texas, and UTEP, although Houston was the only university to offer a scholarship. Keenum also earned varsity letters in basketball and track during his high school career.

Keenum began his college career at the University of Houston during the 2006 season. During his freshman season, decorated senior Kevin Kolb held the starting quarterback position for the Cougars, leading the coaching staff to redshirt Keenum for the season. The 2006 Cougars won the Conference USA championship, and Kolb was drafted by the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles.
