Steve Grogan is one of the greatest players in New England Patriots history and a member of the team’s Hall of Fame. Originally a 5th round draft pick out of Kansas State in 1975, Steve spent a franchise record 16 seasons with the Pats. In just his second year, he stepped in as starting quarterback and led New England to an 11-3 record. It was a season that ended with a controversial playoff “loss” to the eventual Super Bowl Champion Oakland Raiders. During his distinguished career, Steve passed for 26,886 yards and 182 touchdowns. He also rushed for 2,164 yards (4.9 avg.) and 35 touchdowns. He set the NFL single season record for rushing TD’s by a quarterback with 12 in 1976, a record that still stands. Enormously popular with the fans, Grogan is revered as one of the toughest players in Patriots history.
