The Arlington Renegades of the United Football League (UFL) have brought back quarterback Drew Plitt, signaling a significant move for the team’s offense. Plitt, born on January 9, 1998, is a seasoned player with a notable college career at Ball State, and he’s poised to make an impact in the professional arena once again.

Early Life and College Career

Hailing from Loveland, Ohio, Drew Plitt’s journey to the gridiron started at Loveland High School, where he showcased his skills in both basketball and football. His talents were noticed, as he garnered attention from various college programs. Ultimately, Plitt committed to Ball State, choosing the Cardinals over Eastern Michigan, Bowling Green, and Lafayette offers.

At Ball State, Plitt exhibited steady growth and impressive performances. After redshirting his true freshman season, he transitioned into a critical role for the Cardinals, demonstrating his ability to lead the offense. Plitt’s junior and senior years were particularly noteworthy, with standout stats and accolades that solidified his reputation as a top quarterback in the Mid-American Conference (MAC). Notably, he was named the Offensive MVP of the 2020 MAC Championship Game and the MVP of the 2020 Arizona Bowl, showcasing his ability to excel in high-pressure situations.

Professional Journey

Despite his college success, Plitt faced uncertainty as he entered the professional realm. Undrafted in the 2022 NFL Draft, he embarked on a journey through minicamps, catching the attention of teams like the Cincinnati Bengals. Plitt’s preseason performance with the Bengals demonstrated his potential, but he was eventually waived, leading him to explore opportunities elsewhere.

The Arlington Renegades became a pivotal part of Plitt’s professional journey when he was assigned to the team in 2022. Despite setbacks, including a stint on the reserve list due to injury, Plitt showcased resilience and determination. His return to the Renegades for the 2024 season marks a significant moment for both Plitt and the team, offering the opportunity to build on past experiences and contribute to the Renegades’ success.
