Cody Michael Fajardo (born March 29, 1992) is an American football quarterback for the University of Nevada. He won the Glenn Davis Award in 2009 as the best high school football player in California. He became the starting quarterback at Nevada in 2011.

Early years

Fajardo (also referred to as "The Codster") played high school football for Servite High School in Anaheim, California.[1][2] As a senior, he led Servite to a state championship and a No. 3 ranking in the national polling.[3] He won the Glenn Davis Award in 2009 as the best high school football player in California.[4]

Fajardo's father played college football for the Texas Tech Red Raiders, and his grandfather played for the Colorado Buffaloes.[3]


Fajardo committed to the University of Nevada, Reno in late January 2010.[5] He was redshirted during the 2010 season as Colin Kaepernick completed a four-year run as the starting quarterback for the Nevada Wolfpack football team.

2011 season

As a redshirt freshman, Fajardo became the starting quarterback for 2011 Nevada Wolf Pack football team.[6] Playing against Texas Tech in the third game of the 2011 season, Fajardo rushed for 139 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries and completed four of six passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. On October 15, 2011, he led the Wolfpack to a 49-7 win over New Mexico, running for two touchdowns and completing 20 of 25 passes for 203 yards.[7][8][9]

He was named "The Best Running Quarterback in the WAC" by The Sporting News.[3] Through the first seven games of the 2011 season, Fajardo had over 1,000 yards of total offense on 682 passing yards and 384 rushing yards.[10] As of October 23, 2011, Fajardo's average of 7.0 yards per carry ranked 17th among players in the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision.[11]
