Frequently referred to as the “the field general,” the quarterback is often the player who is not only a leader on the team but an outstanding athlete who can make split-second decisions to lead the team to victory. It is the most esteemed position on the football team, but also the one that attracts the most scrutiny.
In our 2013 issue, we featured the top high school football quarterbacks from the Chattanooga area. Since then, we have researched and compiled data to select, update, and rank the top quarterbacks spanning the last 70 years!
The criteria used, once again, for this ranking include: 1) high school football performance (passing yards, rushing yards, awards won, state championships achieved, win-loss record, etc.) 2) college football career, and 3) post-college football career.
While there are too many great quarterbacks to feature in one article, we do proudly present “70 Years: Greatest Quarterbacks of All Time.”
