Danny Wuerffel Biography
Danny Wuerffel ws born May 27, 1974 in Pensacola, Florida and is a former American football player who won the 1996 Heisman Trophy while playing quarterback at the University of Florida under coach Steve Spurrier. He later played for several NFL teams, retiring in 2002.
Since retiring from football Wuerffel has been engaged in charitable work in New Orleans.
He is the only Heisman Trophy recipient to receive the Draddy, which is presented by the National Football Foundation and the College Football Hall of Fame to the nation-s top football scholar-athlete
Wuerffel was a First-team All-America selection in 1995 and 1996 and two-time recipient of the Davey O'Brien Award as the nation's top college quarterback both of those seasons. He was also awarded the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award award as the nation's top senior quarterback. In 1995 he was awarded the Sammy Baugh Trophy, emblematic of the nation's top collegiate passer. He was named to the Gainesville Sun-s UF Team of the Century in 1999 and was chosen the century-s top Gator offensive player by that publication. He was also a member of the Florida Gator's 100th Anniversary Team, which was chosen in 2006.
He finished his Gator career by completing 708 of 1,170 passes for 10,875 yards with 114 TD passes, the best in SEC history and second-most in major college history. His career pass efficiency rating of 163.56 was the best in major college history and his percentage of passes which went for a TD (9.74) ranked first in collegiate history. In 1995, his efficiency rating of 178.4 set a single-season collegiate record. During his Heisman-winning season of 1996, he completed 207 of 360 passes for 3,625 yards (an SEC record at the time) for 39 TDs (leading the nation) and his efficiency rating of 170.6 made him the first QB to ever post a rating of 170 or better in back-to-back years.
Known for clamping his hands together after throwing touchdowns, Wuerffel made his religious faith known throughout his college career
His National Football League career was significantly less successful. After playing seven seasons in the NFL for the New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, and Washington Redskins, Wuerffel retired. One highlight of his professional career was winning the MVP award in World Bowl 2000 while playing for Rhein Fire in NFL Europe (the game was won by Fire 13-10 over the Scottish Claymores).
