Joe Flacco

As a boy, Joe Flacco tossed footballs around in his backyard, pretending that he was a football legend like Joe Montana or Barry Sanders. That was just the beginning of his dream of becoming a professional football player. Unlike many players who got national exposure playing for high-profile colleges in front of large crowds, Joe s path to the NFL happened on a much smaller scale.

Joe played quarterback for the University of Delaware for two years. Scouts in the NFL were impressed with his six-foot-six height, strong arm, and calm personality. On April 26, 2008, the Baltimore Ravens drafted Joe as a first-round draft pick—eighteenth overall. In his first season with the NFL, Joe did something that no other rookie quarterback has done. Look inside to see how Joe made history!
