FWST: Andy Dalton's star keeps rising in Cincinnati

By Stefan Stevenson

Andy Dalton won more football games than any Horned Frog in history. But even his biggest admirers didn't predict him leading the Cincinnati Bengals to a winning record and the playoffs as a rookie quarterback in 2011. After all, the Bengals had made the postseason just twice since 1990.

But Dalton picked up where he left off at TCU and became just the fifth rookie in NFL history to pass for 3,000 or more yards (Cam Newton also did it for Carolina in 2011). Dalton threw for a Bengals rookie record 20 touchdowns and 3,398 yards. He became the only rookie quarterback not selected in the first round (he was drafted 35th overall in the 2nd round) to start 16 games and also lead his team to the playoffs.

It was a whirlwind year. He experienced a Rose Bowl win, the NFL Draft, a July wedding, his first year in the NFL, his first playoff game in his hometown of Houston and a Pro Bowl appearance.

He's finally been able to catch his breath in the off-season as he and his wife, Jordan, bought a house in Fort Worth. He spent a lot of time at TCU working out and watching spring practice. But he's back in Cincinnati and recently announced the start of the Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation, which aims to help seriously ill and physically challenged children and their families in the Cincinnati area. He recently opened a Twitter account (@AndyDalton14) to help spread the word about the foundation. To learn more, go online to AndyDalton.org. ...

Me either, I was curious to see where they were going to settle though, I figured 'Nati or maybe Houston but FW is the obvious choice. He is a legend in that town and always will be.

Friday i was talking with a client who is with the team in Cincy. They are very pleased with what they got in AD and looking for bigger and better things this year after a full off season to work with him. What a great representative of TCU!

I'm glad to have met Andy Dalton twice. He came and played at our par church youth ministry Young Life club on Monday nights. I will gladly root for his Bengals for a long time.
