Pachall to Play in All-Star Game
Dec. 8, 2013
FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU quarterback Casey Pachall will play in the inaugural Medal of Honor Bowl on Jan. 11 in Charleston, S.C.
Pachall closed his TCU career as the school's all-time leader in completion percentage (62.9). He ranks third on the Horned Frogs' career chart in completions (431), passing yards (5,415) and touchdown passes (42). His two scoring tosses against Baylor, in his final game, moved him past Slingin' Sammy Baugh (40, 1934-36) into sole possession of third in TCU history.
A Brownwood, Texas, native, Pachall had a touchdown pass in 17 of 23 career starts with multiple scoring tosses in 14 contests. His five career 300-yard passing games are tied with Andy Dalton (2007-10) for the most in TCU history.
For his career, Pachall was 17-6 as a starting quarterback.
Pachall recorded two of the top-six passing games in TCU history. His 473 yards, to go with a school-record tying five touchdown passes, in a 2011 win at Boise State ranked second. His performance in the game earned him Walter Camp National Player of the Week honors. His 394 yards versus West Virginia this season were sixth. Pachall's career-high 40 completions against the Mountaineers ranked second for a single game at TCU.
As a sophomore in 2011, Pachall earned all-conference honors as he set TCU single-season records for completions (228), completion percentage (66.5) and passing yards (2,921). He ranked 12th nationally in passing efficiency with a 157.98 rating.
Longtime coaches Chan Gailey and Ralph Friedgen will be the head coaches in the Medal of Honor Bowl.
