Craig Morton played on three losing teams at California, but in 1964, when the team had only a 3-7 record, he was named a first-team All-America. That season was a great one for quarterbacks and some selectors chose him over two other quarterbacks who were on winning teams - Jerry Rhome of Tulsa, Bob Timberlake of Michigan, Joe Namath of Alabama, and John Huarte of Notre Dame, the Heisman Trophy winner. That year Morton also received the Voit Award, given to the best player on the Pacific Coast, and the Pop Warner Award, given to the best senior player. In that year he completed 185 of 308 passes for 2,121 yards and 13 touchdowns. He played 18 years in the pros, 1965-82, with the Cowboys, Giants and Broncos. He spent one year (1988) as quarterback coach of the Denver Broncos of the National Football League and two years as head coach of the Denver Gold of the U.S. Football League. His career totals at California showed he played 25 games (Cal won only seven),and threw 36 touchdown passes.
