Cincinnati 125 for 125 | # 36 Zach Collaros


Quarterback | Letters 2008-2011

The legacy of Zach Collaros is a tricky thing to figure. When you add up the numbers it becomes clear that he is in the upper echelon of UC signal callers with Greg Cook, Tony Pike and Gino Gidugli. He ranks in the top 5 all time in passing yards, TD's, all purpose yards and is the all time leader in completion percentage.

But at the same time it feels weird to put him in that group of players, or at least it does to me because he peaked so early during that four game stretch in 2009 and never came close to matching that level of performance as his career wound down. His progression is atypical which makes putting his career into any sort of perspective very difficult indeed. In the end however his three Big East Championship rings put him near the top of the list.
