Bio

Bryce William Petty was born in Thomaston, Georgia on May 31, 1991. A quarterback for the Baylor Bears, he was named as the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year for the 2013 season.

After relocating to Midlothian, Texas, Petty went to Midlothian High School and soon developed a reputation as a promising pro-style quarterback. Having received offers from various colleges around the nation, he committed to Baylor in early 2009 but did not play any games for the Bears as a true freshman in 2010.

As a redshirted freshman, Petty made his first appearances for Baylor in the 2011 season, serving as backup to the team's first choice quarterback, and the eventual Heisman Trophy winner for that year, Robert Griffin III. Over the course of the season, Petty did manage to appear in five games and completed three of his four passes for 43 passing yards.

Despite Robert Griffin III leaving for the National Football League, Petty again served as the backup quarterback during his sophomore year, this time behind Nick Florence. Petty made a total of six appearances during the season and made a slightly more significant contribution, completing seven of his ten passes for 97 yards and one touchdown. Prior to his junior year, he was selected as the team's starting quarterback.

The 2013 season was hugely successful for both Petty and the Bears, as they ended up winning the Big 12 Conference Championship and achieving their first ever 11-win season. The Bears' Conference Championship win was the program's first since 1980 and the season also included an unbeaten home record of 7-0. As a result, they made their first ever Bowl Championship Series appearance, representing the Big 12 Conference in the 2014 Fiesta Bowl. Unfortunately, they lost the game 52-42 to the Central Florida Knights.

Nonetheless, Petty received huge praise for his performances throughout his junior year, which saw him finish with over 4,000 passing yards and 32 passing touchdowns, with just three interceptions. As well as being named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year, he was also included in the All-Big 12 1st Team.
