Perseverance will get you far in life, and former NFL quarterback Neil Lomax is perhaps one of the best examples ever. The Oregon native had some great stats at Lake Oswego High School that earned him a partial scholarship at nearby Portland State, but Lomax began his college career as the fifth-string QB and the NFL was nothing more than a dream. But four years later, Lomax had risen up the depth chart to be the starter and he went on to set dozens of NCAA records, including an incredible seven TD passes in one quarter. That enticed the St. Louis Cardinals to take him in the second round of the 1981 NFL Draft, and the guy who barely made his college team was set to take on the NFL.
In an NFL career spanning nearly a decade, Lomax went to the Pro Bowl twice and threw for nearly 23,000 yards, despite being on a team that wasn’t very good at that time. He remains a popular name in St. Louis and also in Arizona, where the Cardinals moved during his career. Lomax is now president of a sports marketing company and resides in Oregon.
