  •            12JOSH STRAUGHAN   QBHEIGHT 6-3 WEIGHT   215  SeniorHIGHSCHOOL Colton      HOMETOWN COLTON, WASH. Southern Illinois University Quarterback Josh Straughan (6’3” 215 lbs) graduated from a tiny high school in the state of Washington. He was a three sport prep athlete who earned all league and all state honors as a quarterback, point guard, and pitcher-infielder. He completed 662 for 11,663 yards and 141 touchdowns at Colton High School. Straughan was selected as an all league and all state QB, along with being named the 2011 small school state player of the year. He also helped lead the Wildcats to a 5th place state finish in basketball and pitched them to a state championship in baseball. But playing quarterback was his love. Straughan received offers from smaller colleges and even a couple from Division I schools. He accepted a scholarship to play for Stillman College, a Division II HBCU in Alabama some 2,500 miles away. In his first collegiate game as a true freshman, Straughan came off the bench in the fourth quarter with his team trailing Central State University 20-to-7. He threw for 143 yards and 3 TDs to lead the Tigers to a 28-27 win, earning the MVP award at the Dayton Ohio Classic. He grew into an all conference, all region, and all American quarterback. He completed 484 passes for 5,557 yards and 55 TDs. He was unable to play his senior year at Stillman due to an injury and decided to graduate early to pursue his dream of playing Division I college football. He received several offers and accepted a scholarship to play for the Salukis. At Southern Illinois, Straughan worked hard to learn a new offense and eventually became the starting quarterback despite being there for a short time. The Salukis opened at FBS Florida Atlantic and faced ranked FCS teams in the tough Missouri Valley Football Conference. In his first eight games, Straughan completed 221 passes for 2,429 yards and 15 touchdowns. He ranked 1st in passing yards and 2nd in total offense per game in the MVFC. He was selected twice the MVFC Newcomer of the Week and four times the SIU Player of the Game. He also was named the FCS Player of the Week passing for 289 yards and 4 TDs to beat Murray State 50-17. The Saluki gunslinger threw for 367 yards against Florida Atlantic, 307 yards against Northern Iowa, 380 yards against South Dakota State, and 315 yards against Missouri State. Straughan helped lead an offense that ranked 4th nationally among FCS teams, averaging 470 yards and 31 points a game. Among FCS QBs, Straughan after eight games was 5th in the nation in completions per game (27.63), 7th in the nation in passing yards per game (303.6 yards), 8th in the nation in completion percentage (67.4%), and 9th in the nation in total passing yards (2,429 yards). Even after not playing in the last couple of games, Straughan ranked 4th in completions per game, 5th in completion percentage, and 7th in passing yards per game among all FCS quarterbacks while facing some of the top FCS teams. For his efforts at Southern Illinois, Straughan was named to the MVFC All Newcomer Team. He accepted an invite to the 2016 FCS All Star Bowl where he completed 19 passes for 266 yards and 3 TDs. He also was awarded the Most Valuable Player. His MVP performance earned him an invite to the 2017 FBS All American Tropical Bowl. He finished his college career with 705 completions, 8,012 yards, and 70 TDs.  The Josh Straughan Story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOe2dRdCsg0Southern Illinois University Highlights: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIpmvlFQAzkhttp://profootballspot.com/nfl-draft/article/records/inside-the-war-room-quarterback-edition-r112/Stillman College Highlights: http://www.hudl.com/video/3/2298432/5721c0bbb019261f80bf726ahttp://www.spokesman.com/stories/2016/sep/13/blanchette-coltons-josh-straughan-overcame-obstacl/http://dailyegyptian.com/60233/siu-football/the-josh-straughan-story-a-loveable-underdog-narrative/http://qbcountry.com/southern-illinois-qb-josh-straughans-journey-shows-persistence-is-key/SIU QB Josh Straughan Interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fq0fpZouXYhttp://www.nfldraftdiamonds.com/josh-straughan-qb-southern-illinois-university/http://klewtv.com/sports/college/former-colton-qb-thriving-at-southern-illinois
