Quinton Flowers is one of the most beloved players in the history of University of South Florida football. Now his Tampa football journey continues.

Flowers went number 37 overall in the draft, and was actually drafted as a RB, even though he was a quarterback in college.

In his career at USF, Flowers threw for 8,124 yards, 71 TDs and 23 INTs while also rushing for 3672 yards and 41 TDs.


Flowers is #1 in the USF for career rushing attempts, career rush yards, single season rush yards, rush yards and attempts by a quarterback, rushing touchdowns in a season, career rushing touchdowns, and yards per rush in a season. He played in a run heavy offense that also included now NFL RB Marlon Mack.

We don't know exactly how the Vipers will use Flowers, but there's no question he is one of the league's most dynamic and athletic players.
