1976 Rookie Profile: Scott Gardner

8th Round
"Gardner accounted for over 6,000 yards of total offense in his four years as a starting quarterback at Virginia. He threw 33 touchdown passes and scored 13 touchdowns running.
Scott had an outstanding junior year when he hit on 56.4% of passes and threw 14 touchdown passes despite missing the final four games with a leg injury. He won All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors in 1973 and 1974 and was winner of the Brian Piccolo Award in 1975 as the most courageous player in the ACC. Scott holds all Virginia passing and total offense records.
A commerce major who turned down a $25,000 contract offer in baseball, Scott earned three baseball letters and was drafted by the Kansas City Royals."
