Sam Houston State QB Jeremiah Briscoe to work out for Texans

Sam Houston State quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe has been invited to attend the Texans’ local prospect day, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly.

The Detroit Lions met with Briscoe at his school last week.

Briscoe is a Stratford High graduate who won the Walter Payton award two years ago as the top offensive player in the Football Championship Subdivision.

He set a record with 57 touchdown passes, a record that had stood since 1984 and was named Southland Conference Player of the Year and All-American.

Last season, he passed for 5,003 yards and 45 touchdowns.

At Stratford, he passed for 1,863 yard and 12 touchdowns as a senior.

Briscoe attended the same high school as Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.

He finished his college career with 11,488 yards, 116 touchdown passes and 31 interceptions.
