All-American Selection: 1994

Quarterback, 1994, West Lawn, Pa., selected by the Associated Press, United Press International, The Football News, Football Writers, Walter Camp and The Sporting News. Collins also captured two of college football's major post-season prizes -- the Maxwell Award (nation's outstanding player), and the Davey O'Brien Award (nation's top quarterback). Collins finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy balloting and garnered Player-of-the-Year honors from ABC-TV/Chevrolet and the Big Ten. Collins made a serious run at the NCAA season passing efficiency record, falling just four points short (172.8), the fourth-highest figure in NCAA annals. He broke Penn State season records for total offense (2,660), completions (176), passing yardage (2,679), completion percentage (66.7), yards per attempt (10.15) and passing efficiency (172.86). He had 14 consecutive completions at Minnesota, another school mark. Collins was the linchpin of an explosive offense that shattered 14 school records and led the nation in scoring (47.8 ppg) and total offense (520.2 ypg.). The Carolina Panthers made Collins their first-round pick in the 1995 National Football League Draft, the fifth player selected overall. He played part of the 1998 season with the New Orleans Saints after playing with Carolina (1995-98). He played five years (1999-2003) with the New York Giants, capping the 2000 season with a trip to Super Bowl XXXV. He played for the Oakland Raiders in 2004-05 before signing with the Tennessee Titans in 2006. Collins lives in Fair Hills, N.J.
