Regardless of the elite coaching and playmaking around him, it is undeniable that Purdy has played at a pro-bowl level this season and put up the numbers to back it up.
Career At Perry
Purdy played on Perry’s varsity team from 2015-2017. Over his last two seasons with the Pumas, he combined for 9,631 yards and 115 total touchdowns. This is looked at as one of the most dominant stretches ever for a high school football quarterback.

He led the team to the state championship during his senior year but fell just short 42-49 against the Chandler Wolves.
Despite his high school dominance, Purdy was just a three-star recruit and decided that Iowa State was the best option for him. He started all four seasons for the Cyclones and finished with a 30-17 record. He became the first quarterback to take Iowa State to four straight bowl games.

It is safe to say that the Arizona community and Niners fans did their part in making sure Mr. Irrelevant made the Pro Bowl.
While there are still player and coach votes that need to be accounted for, Purdy will undoubtedly get a spot on the Pro Bowl Roster. Whether he participates or not is up to him and the team’s success and whether they secure a spot at Super Bowl LVII.
