2017 football: Five best Washington QBs of all-time

Compiled by The Seattle Times

1) Warren Moon


242-496 (49 pct), 3,277 yds, 19 TD, 17 INT: Emergence in 1977, leading Huskies to Rose Bowl victory. His two rushing touchdowns and one passing TD led the four-loss Huskies over No. 4 Michigan and coach Bo Schembechler, and keyed UW’s revival. Was Pac-10 co-player of the year in ’77.

2) Bob Schloredt


59-119 (50 pct), 1,077 yds, 6 TD, 6 INT: Only two-time Rose Bowl MVP in school history, led upsets of Wisconsin and Minnesota. In his junior season, he played quarterback and made the AP All-America team. He also was a defensive back and intercepted seven passes. A childhood accident, at age five, left him with only five percent vision in his left eye.

3) Marques Tuiasosopo


418-761 (55 pct), 5,501 yds, 31 TD, 28 INT: Consummate two-way college quarterback, and a terrific leader. Became the only player in FBS history to throw for 300 yards and run for 200 in the same game, finishing with 509. Recruited out high school as a defensive back.

4) Mark Brunell


259-498 (52 pct), 3,423 yds, 23 TD, 16 INT: Long professional career backed up his excellent 1990-92 run that began as the Rose Bowl MVP for the 1990 season. He was the trigger for three consecutive Pac-10 titles and an inspiration during the run to the 1991 national championship,

5) Don Heinrich


335-610 (55 pct), 4,392 yds, 33 TD: First great UW quarterback was a college Hall of Famer, then played nine years as a pro. He earned All-America honors in both 1950 and 1952; twice led NCAA in passing.

Honorable mention

Billy Joe Hobert (1990-92), quarterback of 1991 national champs never lost a game in his UW career. … Sonny Sixkiller (1970-72), ushered in the passing era of Huskies football, went 22-10 his three years. … Chris Chandler (1984-87), won modestly with Huskies, but then spent 17 seasons in the NFL. … Steve Pelluer (1980-83), took Huskies to ’82 Rose Bowl win before a seven-year pro career. … Tom Flick (1979-80), went 17-5 in two years as starter, including a Pasadena appearance.
