Early yearsEdit

Randall attended Bruton High School in Williamsburg, Virginia, where he established new school records for passing yards (6,508) and total offense (8,034 yards). On the final passing attempt of his high school career, he broke the school record for touchdown passes (47).[1] He also played on the 2000 AA State Championship basketball team captained by Hughes McLean, Brandon Randall and Erik Conradi.

College careerEdit

Freshman (2001)Edit

For the 2001 season, Randall served as backup quarterback to starter Grant Noel, seeing limited game action.

Sophomore (2002)Edit

In 2002, Randall came into the game against Louisiana State in relief of Noel, who was being hampered by an injury sustained during spring practice. Randall started the remaining 12 games that season. In a shocking 50-42 overtime loss to Syracuse, Randall passed for 504 yards - a Big East Conference record - and five touchdowns.

Junior (2003)Edit

In 2003, Randall split the quarterback duties with highly touted redshirt freshman quarterback Marcus Vick. Though Randall started all thirteen games for Virginia Tech, completing 150 of 245 passes for 1,996 yards and 15 touchdowns with eight interceptions,[2] Vick played every game.

Senior (2004)Edit

Following the 2003 season, Marcus Vick ran afoul of the law and was suspended for the 2004 season.[3] Randall, the undisputed senior starter, culminated his college career in 2004, throwing for 2,264 yards and rushing for 511 yards.[4] He led the team to its first ACC Championship and a berth in the 2005 Sugar Bowl, narrowly losing to Auburn.
