Rudy Carpenter (born April 15, 1986 in Westlake Village, California) is an American football quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League. He was signed by the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2009. He played college football at Arizona State.

Carpenter led Westlake High School to a 14-0 record and the 2003 California Interscholastic Federation Division II championship. Carpenter was named the Los Angeles Daily News Offensive Player of the Year. He was also given a pre and postseason All-America selection by Prepstar Magazine. Carpenter was listed as the No. 67 player in California by SuperPrep Magazine and listed as the No. 36 player in California and a preseason All-American by SuperPrep Magazine. He was rated as the No. 20 quarterback in the nation by Rivals.com. He played in the Cali-Florida High School All-Star game. His statistics as a senior included 2,705 passing yards (163 completions on 262 attempts) and 36 touchdowns and only six interceptions, and he also rushed for 626 yards and seven scores and led Westlake to a Division IV Championship and a 14-0 season.

Carpenter started the final five games of his freshman season. During that time he was the most efficient quarterback in the country and led the Sun Devils to a victory over Rutgers in the Insight Bowl. The following fall, Sam Keller, whose injury allowed Carpenter to become the starter in 2005, was named the starting quarterback by then-ASU coach Dirk Koetter. But two days later, Koetter reversed his decision and Carpenter was given the starting job. Keller subsequently transferred to Nebraska and Carpenter went on to have a less than desired season. In 2005, Carpenter earned second-team Freshman All-America honors by Scout.com and was named an honorable mention Freshman All-American by Sporting News.
