Xavier High School Class of 2018 graduate Will Levis dazzled in his National Football League debut on Sunday, October 29. Levis threw four touchdown passes to lead the Tennessee Titans to a 28-23 victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Nashville.
“I’ve been dreaming of this moment my entire life,” said Levis. “Even just to touch the field in an NFL game, let alone win, is incredible.”
It was a dream start for the Falcon great. He became the first player since 1970 to have at least 225 yards, 4 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, and a 65% completion percentage in their first NFL regular season game.
"It was a lot of fun," said Levis, who finished the game 19-of-29 for 238 yards and four touchdowns, with an impressive 130.5 QB rating. "Like I've been saying: This is the game I love, and there's nothing better than winning a football game."
Levis became the third quarterback in NFL history to throw four touchdown passes in his NFL debut, joining Hall of Famer Fran Tarkenton and former Titan Marcus Mariota.
Levis is also one of two Falcons on NFL rosters, joining New York Jets QB Tim Boyle ’13. Xavier is the only High School in the country with two QBs currently in the NFL.
