Ryan Tannehill’s football career has been quite the journey. He was born in Lubbock, Texas and played high school football at Big Spring High School. He then went on to play college football at Texas A&M University.
He began his college career as a wide receiver, but became the full-time starting quarterback as a senior. That year, Tannehill had one of the best seasons in school history, throwing for more than 3,700 yards and 29 touchdowns. He was named a First-Team All-American and was a finalist for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award.
Tannehill was drafted eighth overall by the Dolphins in 2012. He became the team’s starting quarterback midway through his rookie season and held that role for the next six years. He had some ups and downs during his time in Miami, but he ultimately became a reliable starter. He threw for more than 20 touchdown passes in four of his six seasons with the team.
Tannehill was traded to the Titans prior to the 2019 season. He didn’t miss a beat, as he helped lead the team to a 9-7 record and a spot in the playoffs. In the Wild Card round, he helped Tennessee upset the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots. They beat the Ravens in the Divisional Round, but lost to the eventual Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.
In his first three years with the Titans, he led them to three postseason appearances and two division titles. And he’s also been winning off the field, as Ryan Tannehill’s wife, Lauren Tannehill, is quite the keeper.
