Greg Ward Jr. made the leap into University of Houston legend status with his epic 2015 football season, topped with a conference title, a win over Florida State in the Peach Bowl, and the Earl Campbell Award. Ward Jr. still has one more year left under center on Cullen Boulevard and it’ll be interesting to see what he does for an encore.

If Ward Jr’s success in 2015 surprised you, then you may have missed his performance before the 2015 spring game in the team’s “circle drill”, where Ward Jr. faced off against backup Adam Schulz. Watch the video I snagged here (it was a little rowdy on the field, so apologies for potato quality):

Boom! Next be sure to watch this video of Ward Jr’s junior highlights:

With his 2015 performance, Ward Jr. has vaulted himself alongside other legendary Coog quarterbacks like Andre Ware, David Klingler, Kelvin Kolb, & Case Keenum. Can’t wait for 2016!
