Mariota joined the Titans in the 2015 draft, coming from college ball at Oregon where he was the starting quarterback for two years. He grew up in Honolulu – far from the Hadley Law Firm – idolizing Samoan quarterback Jeremiah Masoli.
Since joining the Titans, he has had the most passing touchdown in a season by a rookie at 19, the most completions in a season by a rookie at 230, the longest run by a quarterback at 87 yards, he was the youngest qb in franchise history to throw over 300 yards in a game, he’s the first qb to catch a touchdown reception, the first to throw a touchdown pass to himself (?), the highest single game completion rate (95.7%) and the best passer rating at 158.3.
