Zach Mettenberger (born July 16, 1991) is an American football quarterback for the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League. He played college football at LSU.

Early years[edit]

Mettenberger attended Oconee County High School in Watkinsville, Georgia. As a senior, he threw 2,106 yards passing with 19 touchdowns and six interceptions. He was ranked as the 11th best pro-style quarterback recruit in his class by Rivals.com.[1]

College career[edit]

Mettenberger originally attended the University of Georgia but was kicked off the team due to a violation of team rules. On April 30, 2010, Mettenberger pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor sexual battery charges stemming from an incident at a bar near Valdosta, Georgia.[2][3] He transferred to Butler Community College, where he became the starter for the 2010 season.[4] In his lone season at Butler, he threw for 2,678 yards passing yards with 32 touchdowns and four interceptions. He led Butler to an 11-1 record and the JUCO National Championship game.

Prior to the 2011 season, Mettenberger transferred to Louisiana State University.[5] In his first season at LSU, he completed eight of 11 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown in limited action. In 2012, he took over as the starting quarterback.[6][7] He led the team to a 10-3 record, completing 58.8% of his passes for 2,609 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions.[8] With the arrival of Cam Cameron as offensive coordinator in 2013, Mettenberger led LSU to a 9-3 regular season record, completing 64.9% of his passes for 3,082 yards, 22 TD's and 8 interceptions with a yards per pass attempt of 10.41 YPA and a QB Rating of 171.4.[9] He is the only LSU quarterback to throw for 2,500 or more yards in back-to-back seasons and was a two-time team captain. Mettenberger tore his ACL in LSU's final regular season game.[10] He underwent surgery and just 13 weeks later, he fully participated in LSU's Pro Day. He threw nearly 125 passes while wearing a helmet and shoulder pads and completed over 90% of his passes.[11]
