Stoney Case
Stoney Case was born July 7, 1972 in Odessa Texas. He is a former quarterback for the Odessa Permian Panthers and the University of New Mexico. He played professionally for the Arizona Cardinals, Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens in the National Football League and Tampa Bay Storm and San Jose SaberCats in the Arena Football League.

Case played high school football for the Odessa Permian Panthers, quarterbacking the team to an undefeated, 160 season and the Texas 5A football title in 1989, one year after the events chronicled in the Friday Night Lights book and movie. The Panthers were voted ESPN's National Champion team as a result. During his Permian career, Case also lettered in baseball as an outfielder, first baseman and pitcher. His brother Stormy Case also played quarterback for the Panthers and went on to play for Texas A&M.

Recruited to play college football for the University of New Mexico, Case was a four-year starter for the Lobos and was the first player in NCAA Division I-A (now FBS) history to post 9,000 career passing yards and 1,000 career rushing yards. In the course of his college career he threw or ran for 98 touchdowns, which at the time of his graduation was second in I-A history to Ty Detmer. In 1994, Case was the WAC player of the year and led the NCAA with 33 total TD'S and 3,649 total yards.
