A lifetime Louisville native, Chris Redman followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather playing football for the Cardinals. When the smoke had cleared on his four-year career, Redman's name dotted not only the U of L record books but the NCAA's as well.

Redman closed his career as the NCAA all-time leader in passes attempted and completed while finishing the 1999 season as one of just three Division I-A signalcallers to throw for more than 12,000 yards in a career.

The Parade National High School Player of the Year at nearby Male High, Redman finished his Cardinal career completing 1,031 of 1,679 passes for 12,541 yards and 84 touchdowns.

A first-team all-Conference USA selection and the league's offensive player of the year in 1999, Redman also added the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award to his mantle.

Redman's junior campaign of 1998 rewrote the U of L and C-USA record books as he passed for 4,042 yards and 29 scores despite playing in just 10 regular season games.

His 44-of-56, 592-yard afternoon against East Carolina was the nation's top single game passing performance in 1998.

Redman was the first Cardinal QB to lead his team to back-to-back bowl appearances.

Known as much for his fishing and golfing expertise as his exploits on the gridiron within the Louisville community, Redman was selected in the third round of the 2000 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens and heads into the 2003 season as the team?s starting quarterback.
