He grew up in a very small town outside of Boise and had athletic competition from day one with two older brothers. Jake Plummer played just about everything growing up including football, basketball and baseball. It was his talent at quarterback that earned him a full ride scholarship to Arizona State in the early 90’s where he set numerous records on the field and was a two-time Academic All-Conference student athlete. His senior year as a Sun Devil was stellar. Jake earned Pac 10 Offensive Player of the Year, was First Team All American, came in 3rd in Heisman voting and was just a few points shy of a National Championship after losing to Ohio State in the Rose Bowl 20-17. He was drafted in 1997 by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2nd round where he played 5 up and down seasons. In 2003, he signed with the Denver Broncos as a free agent and led them to the playoffs for 3 straight seasons. In 2006, for the first time in his career, he was replaced mid-season by Jay Cutler and was traded to Tampa Bay at the end of he season. He had filed his retirement paperwork before the trade and never played for the Bucs. These days Jake lives in Colorado with his wife and 3 kids.
