A Knoxville, Tenn. native, Epperly was a 2-time All-State QB before going on to play college ball for the Ivy League’s Princeton Tigers. The 6’1″, 210 lb lefty Quaterback left quite a mark during his college career, starting all 4 years for the Tigers.
During his junior season, Epperly was named Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year and finished 10th in the Walter Payton Award for FCS National Player of the Year. Epperly led the nation in points responsible per game (26.6), matched a school record for passing touchdowns (25) and was one short of a single-season rushing touchdown mark (18). Epperly also broke the NCAA consecutive completion record when he completed 29 straight passes in a win over Cornell. He capped off his illustrious career as a Tiger by completing 58.5% of his passes during his senior season.
Despite playing at a smaller school, Epperly’s legs and arm has attracted a great deal of NFL attention, already earning looks from the New York Giants, New York Jets, and in 2017, a mini-camp invitation from the Dallas Cowboys.
Epperly will suit up for The Spring League in 2018, ready to display his patented mobility and accuracy for all the NFL scouts in attendance.
