Brett Hundley’s journey into the National Football League (NFL) started after he was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He showed his commitment to the team and started in nine games before joining the Seattle Seahawks. Prior to going pro, he was one of the relevant hands with the University of California football team. Ever since he took up the game as a career and not just a hobby, he has played at his best and has bagged a few accolades.
The footballer was born on June 15, 1993, in Phoenix to a sporty family. His mom is April Hundley and his dad, Brett Senior was an active footballer during his heydays. He played as a quarterback for the University of Arizona. Brett Hundley is one of two children born to his parents, the other is his sister Paris Hundley who is said to be epileptic. In a bid to reach out to others who suffer the same plight as his sister, Brett Jr. is solely involved in most charity organizations that are centered on reaching out to the epileptics.
Brett Hundley wouldn’t have gone pro as a footballer if he had not made the best out of himself during his days as a student-athlete. During his days at Chandler High school in Arizona, he was detailed as a young determined footballer and scored 107 passes for 1,517 yards with 16 touchdown passes in addition to two interceptions as a junior. His records in his senior days were more impressive as he topped his former skills and recorded 139 passes for 2,348 yards with 20 touchdowns and two interceptions. With such a glaringly remarkable performance, he bagged a lot of accolades. Soon he left for college and proved his relevance with the University of California team (UCLA).
Upon graduation from UCLA, the Green Bay Packers made his dream of going pro a reality after he was selected by the team in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft. Unlike most of his peers who had more than a year contract with their supposed team, Brett Hundley had just one year to prove that he was substantial. At first, he started out as a backup quarterback but was subsequently asked to replace Aaron Rodgers; the team’s starter, after the starter incurred an injury in a game against the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings won the game but on Brett’s part, his performance in the game was overwhelming as he recorded 18-of-33 passes for 157 yards, one touchdown, and 3 interceptions.
In his next game, he played against the New Saints Orleans and scored 12 completions on 25 attempts for 87 yards, an interception, and a passer, more so, he didn’t record any touch down in the game which was rated a very poor performance. In the subsequent weeks that followed, Brett Hundley improved, in week 9, scored 245 yards passing and a rushing touchdown, although, it was in a loss to the Detroit Lions. In week 10, he topped his games and recorded 18 out of 25 passing for 212 yards and his first 100+ passer rating as a starter in a victory over Chicago Bears. For every single game that Bret happened to play in afterward, he did better than his previous games. Come 2017, he totaled 1,836 passing yards, nine touchdowns, 12 interception, 270 rushing yards, and two rushing touchdowns. The Packers later traded him to the Seattle Seahawks in 2018.
