The quotes were funny but there are just too many of them. Eliminating a couple of them (especially the repeating ones) would add to the humor. Also, the repeated references to University of Pheonix get old. Maybe think about just mentioning that he transferred from Pheonix to Texas or something.
The overall idea for the article is pretty good. I think adding something about his "early years" or childhood would help add to the article and give you an oppurtunity for more humor at the same time.
Prose and formatting:
There were a few grammatical errors, but overall the article is pretty solid layout wise.
I think a few more images could be added to help out the article. Maybe one of himw waiting to be drafted or some random kid holding a football that you can pass of as young Colt.
Overall the article just needs a little touching up to make it work pretty well. Removing some of the quotes would do wonders for this article.
You're definately on track for a good article. Just a little polishing will make it work nicely.
