Playing career

Chase Andrew Holbrook is an American football coach and former starting quarterback for New Mexico State University from 2006 to 2008. He is currently the quarterbacks coach for the New Mexico State University Aggies football team. Holbrook played his freshman collegiate year at Southeastern Louisiana as a backup quarterback in 2004.

Early lifeEdit

Holbrook attended L. D. Bell High School in Hurst, Texas. While at Bell, Holbrook was an option style quarterback.[1] Due to his high school's offense, Holbrook was receiving scholarship offers from colleges that wanted him to play tight end.[1]

College careerEdit

Holbrook received offers from Missouri, TCU and Tulsa, but turned down their offers at a chance to be a quarterback at Southeastern Louisiana.[2] Holbrook appeared in 10 games as a true freshman for the Lions, completing 7 of 9 passes from 75 yards, in Hal Mumme's pass friendly offense.[3] Following the 2004 season, Mumme took the head coaching job at New Mexico State, and Holbrook followed him still wanting to play quarterback.[4] Holbrook sat out the 2005 season due to NCAA transfer rules.[4] Holbrook was named the starting quarterback for the Aggies the following fall. During his collegiate career Holbrook played a total of 44 games, completing 1,093 of 1,575 attempts for a total of 11,921 yards with 85 touchdowns and 41 interceptions. In his first year at NMSU he threw for 4,619 yards and had 4,541 yards of total offense, setting an NCAA single-season record. That same season he scored 34 touchdowns with only 9 interceptions, breaking many of the school's single-season records in the process.
