  • Quarterbacked CU to three Big Eight titles and a 20-0-1 league record
  • Fifth in the 1989 Heisman Trophy balloting as a sophomore

Darian Hagan is arguably the most talented player to ever put on a CU football uniform.  The multi-dimensional quarterback, who actually was also the team’s top punt return man as a senior, piloted CU to three consecutive Big Eight titles In 1989, 1990 and 1991.  He led the Buffaloes to a 20-0-1 mark in conference play during that span, as well as a 30-5-2 record overall as the starter.  He finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy balloting as a sophomore, when he became the only player in CU history to rush and pass for over 1,000 yards in the same season.  In his career, he rushed for 2,007 yards and passed for 3,801, numbers that still rank 12th and sixth, respectively, at Colorado.  An All-American in 1989 when he was the runaway choice as the Big Eight offensive player-of-the-year, Hagan was a two-time all-Big Eight selection in 1989 and 1990.  He returned to CU in the mid-1990s and earned his degree, and would then work for two years as CU’s Alumni C Club director.  His jersey number, 3, was previously honored in 1999.
