Tino Sunseri (born December 21, 1988) is a former American football quarterback. He was originally signed by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2013.[1] He played college football at Pittsburgh.

College careerEdit

Tino Sunseri was the starting quarterback at the University of Pittsburgh for 3 years. A local Central Catholic grad, Tino led Pitt to a 20-19 record including three bowl appearances. He went undrafted in the NFL Draft at the end of his senior year.

Professional careerEdit

Sunseri shares the all-time professional football (NFL and CFL) record for the most two-point converts scored in a single game, at three, for six points in total, with Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz , who converted three conversions in the November 19, 2017, contest against the Dallas Cowboys. This is one short of the all-time team record of four scored by the St. Louis Rams during their game with the Atlanta Falcons on October 15, 2000. All conversions by Sunseri were done consecutively (via passing), in a 31-24 loss to the Calgary Stampeders on October 3, 2014. The three two-point conversions in a single game by one team is an all-time CFL record.

On June 15, 2015, Sunseri was among the Roughriders first cuts, and was released to free agency. On July 1, 2015, it was announced that he was re-signed to the Saskatchewan Roughriders due to a season-ending injury to the Roughriders' starting quarterback Darian Durant. General Manager Brendan Taman stated Tino's knowledge of Jacques Chapdelaine's offensive system was the key to his signing.[2] On September 1, 2015, Sunseri was once again cut by the Roughriders. His cut was among the firing of the Roughriders head coach and general manager, after an 0-9 start to the 2015 season.[3]

Personal lifeEdit

His father, Sal Sunseri, is a defensive coach for the Alabama Crimson Tide and his younger brother, Vinnie Sunseri, played professional football for the San Francisco 49ers.[4]
