Longhorns Honor Jammer

Posted Sep 27, 2013

Broncos defensive back Quentin Jammer will be inducted into the University of Texas Men's Athletics Hall of Honor later this fall.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In addition to his decorated 12-year NFL career, Broncos cornerback Quentin Jammer’s sensational showings on Saturdays etched his place as a Longhorn legend – and now he will be enshrined in the University of Texas Men’s Athletics Hall of Honor.  

Jammer will be inducted into the Hall later this fall, and he will join seven other members in this year’s class – as well as a storied lineage of Longhorn greats.  

“It means a lot to me because the tradition of all the guys that have come before me and made it into the Hall, it’s just awesome,” Jammer said. “We’ve been known as DBU – and there were a lot of great defensive backs who came through before me who paved the way for me.”

During his four-year career at Texas, Jammer set what was at the time a Longhorn record with 57 career pass breakups. As a senior in 2001, he was the 14th unanimous All-American in the history of Texas football, also becoming the program’s first-ever Thorpe Award finalist.

He did not allow a single touchdown pass that season and yielded only one in his 28 collegiate starts – that sustained level of excellence made Jammer a two-time All-Big 12 first-team selection in 2000 and 2001.

Jammer’s excellence on the field in college made him a fifth-overall selection in the 2002 NFL Draft. He has registered 719 tackles, 127 passes defensed and 21 interceptions in his NFL career.

Jammer is joined by his former teammate Roy Williams, who starred as a wide receiver at Texas and played in the NFL from 2004-11, as well as Longhorn basketball great T.J. Ford, who later played eight NBA seasons – among others.  

“I worked my tail off to be the best that I could be and it paid off,” Jammer said.
