Nick Foles was born and raised in Austin, Texas. He graduated in 2007 from Westlake High School, the alma mater of star NFL quarterback Drew Brees. A two year starter for the football team, Foles threw for 5,658 yards and 56 touchdowns, breaking school records previously held by Brees.
COLLEGE (University of Arizona):
Foles finished off his junior year with 3,191 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions despite missing two games due to injury. During the 2011 season, Foles completed 387 of 560 passes for 4,334 yards and 28 touchdowns. He ranked first in the Pacific-12 Conference and fifth among all NCAA Division I FBS players with an average of 352.58 yards of total offense per game. He also ranked second in the Pac-12 and 20th among all FBS players in total passing yardage.
NFL (Philadelphia Eagles):
A relative unknown until 2012, Nick’s rise in the NFL started when he substituted for an injured Michael Vick against the division rival Dallas Cowboys, after Vick left the game in the second quarter with some concussion symptoms, Foles made his NFL debut.
In December 2012, Eagles coach Andy Reid announced that Foles would start for the remainder of the year, regardless of when Michael Vick returned from a concussion. He holds the best TD-INT ratio in the NFL with 27 touchdown passes and only 2 interceptions which he accomplished during 2013 season, which helped him lead the Eagles to their first division title in three years.
