BIOGRAPHY

Aaron Rodgers was born on December 2nd,1983 in Chico, California and currently plays Quarterback in the NFL.

Aaron was a huge sports fan growing up, nicknamed “Hurley” after his admiration for Sacramento Kings basketball player, Bobby Hurley. He attended Pleasant Valley High School, starting for two years at quarterback, garnering 4,421 passing yards and two all-section choice honors (2000-01). He set single-game records of six touchdowns and 440 all-purpose yards. Rodgers set a single-season school record with 2,466 total yards in 2001. If it wasn’t for his talents on the football field, Aaron could have made it as a baseball player. He was a star pitcher with a fastball clocking in at over 90mph. He graduated from Pleasant Valley High School in spring 2002.

Despite his record-setting high school statistics, Rodgers attracted little interest from Division I programs. Rodgers had wanted to attend Florida State and play under head coach Bobby Bowden but did not receive a scholarship. The only offer he received was to walk-on at the University of Illinois. He declined the invitation and considered quitting football to attend law school. After deciding to continue his passion of football, Aaron went the community college route and attended Butte Community College in Oroville about 15 miles of Chico. Idolizing Joe Montana, he would wear a Montana t-shirt underneath his uniform. Rodgers threw 26 touchdowns in his freshman season at Butte Community College, leading the school to a 10-1 record, the NorCal Conference championship, and a No. 2 national ranking. While there, he was discovered by the California Golden Bears’ head coach Jeff Tedford, who was recruiting Butte tight end Garrett Cross. Tedford was surprised to learn that Rodgers had not been recruited earlier. Because of Rodgers’s good high school scholastic record, he was eligible to transfer after one year of junior college instead of the typical two.

As a junior college transfer, Rodgers had three years of eligibility at Cal. He was named the starting quarterback in the fifth game of the 2003 season, against the only team that offered him a Division I opportunity out of high school, Illinois. As a sophomore, he helped lead the Golden Bears to a 7-3 record as a starter. Rodgers passed for 394 yards and was named game MVP in the Insight Bowl against Virginia Tech. Rodgers tied the school season record for 300-yard games with five.

As a junior, Rodgers led Cal to a 10-1 record and top-five ranking at the end of the regular season, with their only loss a 23-17 loss at No. 1 USC. In that game, Rodgers set a school record for consecutive completed passes with 26 and tied an NCAA record with 23 consecutive passes completed in one game. He set a Cal single-game record for passing completion percentage of 85.3. Overall, he finished the 2004 season with 2,566 passing yards, 24 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. His 66.1% pass completion percentage led the Pac-10.

Rodgers decided to forgo his senior season to enter the 2005 NFL Draft. Aaron impressed NFL scouts who labeled him a “talented strong-armed Junior who combines arm strength, mechanics and delivery to make all the throws.” Before the draft, Rodgers was confident that he would be drafted to the team he supported and grew up near, the San Francisco 49ers, who possessed the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. The 49ers, however, drafted quarterback Alex Smith out of Utah instead, and Rodgers went 24th overall to the Green Bay Packers. Rodgers’s going to the Packers was a clear indication the organization was looking to groom him to become the starter after future Hall-of-Famer Brett Favre retires.

Though Rodgers played very little in his rookie season, he ran the scout team during practice. Rodgers said this was critical to his success, and that those were his game reps. The defense and scouts often noted how hard he was practicing, and at one point asked him to tone it down. Wide receiver Donald Driver commented that Rodgers took “every scout-team possession like it was the last possession of his life.”

After backing up Brett Favre for the first three years of his NFL career, Rodgers became the Packers’ starting quarterback in 2008. He threw for 4,038 yards and 28 touchdowns. After his inaugural campaign as a starter, he followed up in 2009 with for 4,434 yards and 30 touchdowns, earning a trip to his first Pro Bowl, and becoming the first quarterback in NFL history to throw for 4,000 yards in both of his first two seasons as a starter.

In 2010, Rodgers threw for 3,922 yards, 28 touchdowns, 11 interceptions, and a passer rating of 101.2, leading the Green Bay Packers to a Super Bowl XLV victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. His stellar performance earned him Super Bowl MVP honors. Rodgers also became the first player in NFL history to pass for at least 900 yards and rush for at least two touchdowns in a single postseason.

The 2011 campaign was one of the most prolific seasons of Rodgers career. He led the NFL with a record-setting 122.5 passer rating, most yards-per-attempt, and touchdown percentage in the league. He racked up 4,643 yards through the air while throwing for 45 touchdown passes and just six interceptions. It was perhaps the most efficient season ever turned in by a pro quarterback. He racked up a ton of hardware, including league MVP, AP Player of the Year and went on to his second career Pro Bowl.
