Brett Hundley, Jr. was born in Chandler, Arizona on June 15, 1993. A quarterback for the UCLA Bruins, he was voted as the Most Valuable Player at the Hyundai Sun Bowl in 2013 and holds various school passing records.
Hundley began his football career at Chandler High School, where he was the football team's starting quarterback for two years, achieving a 16-8 winning record across those seasons. As a junior, he threw for 1,517 yards and 16 touchdowns, before improving those statistics as a senior, registering 2,348 passing yards and 20 touchdowns. At the end of his senior year, he was named as a SuperPrep All-American, was voted as the SuperPrep Farwest Offensive Player of the Year and competed in the UnderArmour All-Star Game.
By the time he finished high school, Hundley was widely considered to be one of the best quarterback prospects in the nation. After committing to the University of California, Los Angeles, he redshirted as a true freshman in 2011 and saw his first action for the UCLA Bruins in 2012. Hundley went on to start all 14 games, scoring a touchdown on his first ever play in college football.
Over the course of the season, he was credited with single-season school records of 319 pass completions and 3,740 passing yards and became the only Bruins quarterback to ever pass for 300 yards in three consecutive games. Hundley contributed 29 touchdown passes and nine rushing touchdowns as the team finished the year as the Pac-12 South Division Champions, with a 9-5 record. At the end-of-season award banquet, he was honored as the school's Rookie of the Year with the John Boncheff Jr. Memorial Award.
As a sophomore, Hundley again started all of the Bruins' games, finishing the year with 2,845 passing yards and improving his pass completion percentage by 1.2 percent from his freshman year. By the end of his second year as a starter, he was ranked third in the school's history for completed passes, touchdown passes and total offense.
In recognition of his performances in 2013, Hundley was a semi finalist for the Davey O'Brien Award, an All-Conference honorable mention and was named as a co-MVP at the Sun Bowl. At the team's award banquet, he received the George W. Dickerson Award for Outstanding Offensive Player and the Paul I. Wellman Award for All-Around Excellence.
