Bio

Taylor Kelly was born in Eagle, Idaho on March 30 1991. A quarterback for the Arizona State Sun Devils, he is one of only seven quarterbacks in the school's history to have thrown for a career total of more than 6,000 yards.

Kelly enjoyed a successful football career at Eagle High School, during which he emerged as one of the state's top recruitment prospects. In 2009, he led the team to the Class 5A State Championship, passing for 2,509 yards and 22 touchdowns and rushing for 1,005 yards and ten touchdowns. During the State Championship Game, he contributed 161 passing yards and one touchdown pass, as well as rushing for 103 yards and two scores. Recruitment analysts widely regarded him as the top quarterback in the state.

After graduating from high school in 2010, Kelly enrolled at Arizona State University, but did not feature for the Sun Devils during the 2010 season, instead serving as a member of the scouting team. He saw his first action for the team in the 2011 season, as backup to the starting quarterback, Brock Osweiler. Throughout the year, he completed all four of his pass attempts, for a total of 31 yards and rushed once, during a game against Colorado, for 24 yards.

Having been named as the starting quarterback for 2012, Kelly went on to enjoy a record-setting season, in which he broke the school record for pass completions, completing 67.1 percent of his 359 pass attempts for a total of 3,039 yards and 29 touchdowns. Over the course of the year, he started 13 games and his performance against Washington State saw him set a new single game Sun Devils record for consecutive completions, with 18. In total, Kelly managed a touchdown pass in all but one of the team's games.

In 2013, Kelly was once again a star performer for the team, registering 3,635 passing yards for 28 touchdowns. His passing yards total was one of the highest single season totals in the school's history and in the process, he became only the second Sun Devils quarterback to throw for more than 3,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. At the end of the year, he was given the Danny White Offensive MVP Award.
