Justin Scott Worley (born November 20, 1992) is an American football quarterback for the Tennessee Volunteers.

Early years

A native of North Carolina,[1] Worley attended Northwestern High School in Rock Hill, South Carolina, where he was teammates with Cordarrelle Patterson. As a sophomore, Worley led Northwestern to state championship game against town-rival South Pointe High.

Regarded as a three-star recruit by, Worley was listed as the No. 24 pro-style quarterback in his class.[2] He was selected as the national high school Gatorade Player of the Year in 2010.[3]

College career

Worley played backup to Tyler Bray most of his first two seasons (2011–2012) at Tennessee and only started nine times before 2013. In 2013 he was named the starter after training camp. He is the first starting quarterback under Butch Jones. During the 2013 season he was a consistent game manager but his success did not lead to overall team success for the most part. He was benched after Tennessee's loss to Oregon for Nate Peterman. Peterman got to start the next game against Florida, but due to Peterman's poor play Worley was put into the Florida game in the second half and would start until he was injured. His most notable performances in 2013 were against Georgia, where Tennessee almost upset Georgia in an overtime game, and against South Carolina where he led Tennessee to its first win over a ranked team in several years with a game changing pass to Marquez North which set up a field goal to win the game. He got injured in the loss against Alabama and was out the rest of the season with that injury.[4]

In 2014, Worley was named the starting QB for the Tennessee Vols for his Senior season. He played and started in seven games beginning with Utah State and ending when he was injured against Ole Miss and had to have season-ending shoulder surgery.[5] His season totals were 1579 passing yards, 12 TDs, 8 INTs, 62.3% completion percentage, and was notably sacked 29 times.[6]
