Bio

A dual threat quarterback out of the Colin Kaepernick mold, Cody Fajardo is a big play waiting to happen out of Nevada’s pistol formation. He’s got good size, speed and arm strength, he’s been the main gun for two years and is looking to make his senior season one to remember.

High School
Fajardo was tabbed the California Player of the Year his senior season at Servite High School in Anaheim, Calif. In two years at Servite, he hit 68.3 percent of his passes for more than 4,000 yards and 36 touchdowns, while also rushing 270 times for 1,808 yards and another 19 scores.

College
Fajardo redshirted his freshman year (2010), but burst onto the scene in 2011 by earning Freshman of the Year honors from the Western Athletic Conference. He took over the starting job in the fifth game and led the Wolf Pack to five straight wins with his arm and legs. In 2012, Fajardo ran for 1,121 yards and 12 scores to go with 2,786 passing yards and 20 more touchdowns. For his efforts, he was named second-team All-Mountain West. He became just the second quarterback in school history to rush for more than 1,000 yards. Fajardo began 2013 on several national watch lists, but the season didn’t go as planned. An early season knee issue plagued him throughout the campaign and the numbers simply weren’t there. Fajardo demonstrated his trademark accuracy (67.8 percent) as he threw for 2,633 yards and 13 scores, but rushed for 762 yards on the season. He accounted for only 21 touchdowns and was forced to pass more and run less as the season became a struggle.


Once again healthy, Fajardo is ready to get back to his old running-passing-winning ways as 2014 beckons.
