Colton James Brennan (born August 16, 1983 in Laguna Beach, California) is an American football quarterback for the Washington Redskins of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Redskins in the sixth round (186th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft. He played college football at Hawaii.
Brennan holds the NCAA D-I record for most touchdown passes in a single season with 58, as well as 30 other NCAA Division I FBS records.
While at Hawaii, Brennan grew dreadlocks to better bond with his wide receivers, and learned enough Samoan so that he could use it to call plays from the line of scrimmage; Hawaii has a number of players of Samoan descent. His parents are Betsy and Terry Brennan of Irvine, California. His father Terry is the CEO of Leighton & Associates of Irvine. Brennan was a communications major. On December 16, 2007, Brennan received his Bachelor of Arts in communications and a 27-second standing ovation.
