Who is Case Keenum?
Case Keenum, the starting quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings, at least until Sam Bradford heals up. Not many of us know who Case Keenum is. So here are all the necessary facts you need to know about the new field general for the Vikings.
Case was born in Brownwood Texas on February 17, 1988. He is currently 29 years old, 6'1'', 205 pounds and married. Case signed his letter of intent out of high school to go play at the University of Houston. After redshirting his freshman year, he would go on to be one of the greatest college quarterbacks ever. He threw for over 19,000 yards while at Houston and was the first quarterback in NCAA history to throw for 5,000 yards in three different seasons as a starter. He threw a total of 155 touchdowns through the air and another 23 touchdowns on the ground. That's over 1,000 points scored by himself! He threw for 44 touchdowns in both his sophomore and junior seasons. He also won Conference MVP two times and was a 2nd team All-American in 2009. By the time he was done playing ball for the Cougars, he held a total on nine NCAA records including; all-time leader in total passing yards, passing touchdowns and completions.
After all of his college success, he managed to go undrafted in 2012, but was quickly signed by none other than the Houston Texans. After multiple stints with the Texans and Rams the Vikings signed him this past off-season to serve as Sam Bradford's backup. He has started 25 NFL games, and threw 24 touchdowns with 20 interceptions so far in his career. He will look to get on track with the Vikings as the season progresses.
