Mark Vlasic      Pennsylvania Wikipedia LinkedIn 

Mark Vlasic attended Center High School and lived in Rochester, Pennsylvania. He was named conference MVP, East Coast Elite Eleven All Star, and Big 33 All Star. In basketball, he finished his high school career with several records, including game, season, and career rebounds. After choosing Iowa, he served as a backup to Chuck Long for four years. During his junior year, as the backup quarterback, he also served as the holder for field goal kicks. After placekicker Rob Houghtlin won a 12-10 game against the University of Michigan thanks to a last second field goal, fans and players rushed the field, and he was injured in the bottom of the pile.

After Long graduated the following season, now a fifth-year senior, he became the starter. He led the nation in passing efficiency until an injury in the third game of the season. In a late October game, he threw a 93-yard touchdown pass to Quinn Early, the longest in Iowa history, in a 27-20 victory against Northwestern. He didn’t return to the lineup fully until the third quarter of the Minnesota game, trailing 17-0, where he threw for 200 yards on 16 of 21 passes, and led the Hawkeyes to a comeback 30-27 win.

In the 1986 Holiday Bowl against San Diego State, he was named the starter, and completed 15 of 28 passes 222 yards and ran for a touchdown as Iowa won 39-38, and he was named Holiday Bowl MVP.

He was selected by the San Diego Chargers as a fourth round draft pick in 1987, but his professional career was hampered by injuries. He started six games in 1988 before a knee injury ended his season. He played the entire 1990 season as starting quarterback for the Chargers. He signed with the Kansas City Chiefs in 1991 as a free agent and was with the team for three years, but saw limited action due to injuries. He signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1994 and retired after the season.

Born 10/25/1963 and is 60 years old.
