Early years

Hogan was born in McLean, Virginia, the son of Jerry and Donna Hogan. He has an older brother, Brian, and a younger sister, Kelly. His grandfather played football at Navy, while his uncles played football at Notre Dame.[1] Hogan attended Gonzaga College High School in Washington, DC where he was a two-time first team All-Washington Catholic Athletic Conference selection.[2] As a senior, he earned D.C. Player of the Year honors and was a 2010 Washington Post First Team All-Met selection.[3] He was also named the 2010 Outstanding High School Player of the Year for private schools by the Fairfax County Football Hall of Fame.[2]

College career

Hogan in 2013

Hogan saw extended play for the first time in his college career on November 3, 2012, when the Stanford Cardinal played the Colorado Buffaloes at Colorado. Hogan replaced Josh Nunes after the first two possessions and went 18-for-23 for 183 yards, throwing for two touchdowns and no interceptions, and racked up 48 rushing yards.[4] Following the game, Hogan was named the starting quarterback for the Cardinal, replacing Nunes.[5] After becoming Stanford's starting quarterback, Hogan led the Cardinal to three straight regular-season victories against ranked opponents: against No. 13 Oregon State,[6] No. 2 Oregon,[7] and No. 17 UCLA.[8] When No. 17 UCLA and Stanford met in the 2012 Pac-12 Championship six days after their regular-season meeting, Hogan led the Cardinal to a 27–24 victory, earning Most Valuable Player honors and sending the team to the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1999.[9][10] At the Rose Bowl, Hogan led the Cardinal to a 20–14 victory against Wisconsin, ending the season with a 5–0 record.[11]

Hogan was again named the Cardinal's starter for the 2013 season.[12] In the season opener against San Jose State on September 7, 2013, Hogan threw for 207 yards and two touchdowns.[13] Hogan went on to lead the Cardinal to an 11-2 regular season record. The season consisted of a win in the Pac-12 Championship game over Arizona State University, and some other notable wins over Notre Dame, Oregon, and UCLA. The Cardinal's performance, led by Hogan, granted them a spot in the 2014 Rose Bowl against the Big 10 champion, Michigan State University.[14] Although the Cardinal and Spartans appeared to be evenly matched, the Spartans came away with a victory after stopping Hogan and the Cardinal offense on a critical 4th down play, late in the fourth quarter.[15] Hogan finished the season with 2,630 passing yards, 20 passing touchdowns, 2 rushing, and 10 interceptions.[14]

Hogan remained the Cardinal's starting quarterback for the beginning of the 2014 season. They finished the regular season with an 8-5 record, with losses to their rivals, Notre Dame, along with four in-conference losses to USC, Arizona State University, Oregon and Utah.[16] Hogan and the Cardinal were then matched up against the Maryland Terrapins in the 2014 Foster Farms Bowl. This was not much of a challenge for Stanford, as they rolled over the Terrapins with a score of 45-21.[17] In this game Hogan 14 of 20 passes for 189 yards and 2 touchdowns and also ran for 50 yards on 7 attempts.[16] This performance earned Hogan the game's MVP award. He finished the season with 2,792 passing yards, 19 passing touchdowns, 5 rushing, and 8 interceptions.[16]

Although they had an unprecedented loss vs Northwestern in their opening game in 2015, the Cardinal rebounded to have a fantastic season. They won their next eight games and ended the season 12-2. They were the only team in college football that season to only play Power 5 teams throughout their schedule. During an 8-game winning streak, Hogan threw for 1,676 yards, 16 touchdowns, 5 interceptions and also scored 3 rushing touchdowns.[18] After a loss to Oregon, Hogan and the Cardinal won the rest of their regular season games, including a win against No. 6 Notre Dame, and claimed their third Pac-12 championship in four years. In his final college game, the 2016 Rose Bowl, Hogan helped lead Stanford to a victory over Iowa. Stanford would lead Iowa 35-0 at the half.[19] He finished the season with 2,867 passing yards and 27 touchdowns.

For his career, Hogan had 9,385 passing yards, 75 passing touchdowns and 15 rushing touchdowns.
