tall football playerDerek Carr (born 1991) is an American football quarterback for the Oakland Raiders of the NFL. He was drafted by the Raiders in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He played college football at Fresno State. Carr is the younger brother of former number one overall pick and fellow Fresno State alumnus David Carr. He is not the same Derek Carr who is the former quarterback for the University of Tennessee at Martin.

Carr enrolled as an early-entry freshman for the spring semester at Fresno State in 2009 so he could participate in spring football with the Bulldogs. Then-Fresno State head coach Pat Hill stated that Carr, a true freshman, was "in the mix" for the starting quarterback position as late as mid-July. However, days before the 2009 season began in September, Hill announced junior Ryan Colburn would start over Carr. After red-shirting his 2010 season, Carr took over the starting B position for Fresno State in the fall of 2011. During his three years as a starter, he threw for 12,843 passing yards and 113 touchdowns. He wore number 4 as an homage to his favorite NFL player, Brett Favre. Carr received the 2013 CFPA Elite QB Award for his performance over three seasons at Fresno State. He joined fellow Bakersfield native Phillip Thomas as the school's second CFPA winner.

Carr was selected by the Oakland Raiders in the 2nd round of the 2014 NFL Draft. On May 16th, 2014, he was assigned his requested number of 4. On May 21, he was signed to a 4-year, $5.37 million contract with a $2.2 million signing bonus.

The 4th quarter comeback ended with Carr throwing a game winning touchdown that put them up 24-20 with just under 1:40 to play. The Raiders would go on to get their first victory of the season. On December 7th, Carr led the Raiders to a 24-13 victory over the visiting San Francisco 49ers. Carr posted a 140.2 rating, the highest for a Raiders quarterback since 2001.

tall football player6'5" 200 lb. Blake Barnett was a football whiz kid in high school.  He was offered a scholarship to  many schools, including Notre Dame, UCLA and USC.  But the only campus he visited was Alabama.  Then in 2014 he decided to go there.  Let me repeat, he actually saw what ALABAMA LOOKS LIKE and he decided to attend anyway.  Well what do you know?  Apparently Alabama's Crimson Tide is a football powerhouse. Probably because playing football is a good way to try to get the hell out of Alabama.

As a sophomore at Corona Santiago (Calif.) High, Barnett mostly served as a backup. He began drawing national attention when, in the opening game of his junior season, Barnett accounted for 381 yards and six touchdowns against Newhall Hart (Calif.) High, which is quarterbacked by four-star Arizona State commit Brady White. “That was the really changing factor in my recruiting process,” Barnett said of the game against Hart.

tall football player6'4" (1.93m) 220 lb. (99kg) Marcus Mariota (born 1993) is an American football quarterback for the University of Oregon Ducks, and the 2014 Heisman Trophy winner.

Mariota is of Samoan and German descent. He was born in Honolulu to Toa Mariota and Alana Deppe-Mariota. He grew up admiring the quarterback play of Jeremiah Masoli, a fellow Samoan American, who was also a standout quarterback at the all-boys Catholic St. Louis High and University of Oregon. Mariota attended St. Louis High School in Honolulu, Hawaii, where he was a two-sport star in football and track. In football, he was relatively unknown late in his high school career due to not starting until his senior season. As a senior, he led St. Louis to an 11-1 record and the state title while being named PrepStar Magazine All-West Region and Interscholastic League of Honolulu Offensive Player of the Year.

After his senior season, he was rated the No. 2 recruiting prospect in the state of Hawaii and No. 12 dual-threat quarterback in the nation by He was recruited by Oregon, Hawaii, Memphis, Utah, Oregon State, Washington, Arizona, Notre Dame, UCLA and USC but was only offered a scholarship by Memphis and Oregon.

Young Blake Barnett of Santiago High School in Corona California is interviewed by Sports Stars of Tomorrow.   Blake is shown playing, working out and in an interview.  His coaches and family also get coverage.  Barnett already has a scholarship offer from the Alabama Crimson Tide and many other schools.


People say there is nothing worth looking at in Fresno, California, but college football star Derek Carr proved them wrong when he was going to Fresno State. Here he is shown running around shirtless during football practice with his buddies.  They are playing something called shirts vs. skins where one team wears shirts and the other does not? Why can't they all be shirtless and just wear little colored hats or something?

I always hated playing shirts vs. skins in junior high school. It was a great way to humiliate skinny kids like me during gym class.
