Who is Brock Purdy's brother, Chubba?

Brock Purdy surprised everyone with his performance as he crippled the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday in the week 14 matchup. Purdy started his first game of the season and led the San Francisco 49ers to a 35-7 win over the Tom Brady-leading Buccaneers.

The 49ers selected him as the 262nd and final pick of the 2022 NFL draft. No one would have imagined that he would play such a big role for the 49ers as he was the third choice on the quarterback depth chart after Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo.

While Trey Lance has been ruled out of the season, Jimmy Garoppolo was injured in the week 13 game against the Dolphins.

As Brock Purdy has been trending for a few days, there is another football star quarterback who shares the same surname. He is none other than Chubba Purdy.

Purdy played in three games with one start for Florida State. In addition to rushing 19 times for 57 yards, he completed 27 of his 53 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns.

In 2020, he began the game against North Carolina State and finished 15 of 23 for 181 yards and two touchdowns. His first touchdown throw was a 69-yarder that turned out to be the largest pass play of 2020 for the Seminoles.

In 2022, Chubba received an offer from both Oklahoma and Nebraska. Chubba has always dreamed of being a Husker and joined them in January 2022.

Purdy has played in six games this season and has thrown for 147 yards with seven interceptions. He has also rushed for 73 yards in 24 attempts and scored two touchdowns. While he might not be a star player like his brother Brock, he is definitely on the path to becoming something bigger.

After graduating from high school, Purdy, a 4-star talent from Gilbert, Arizona, signed with the Seminoles. He was ranked No. 192 overall, No. 7 among dual-threat quarterbacks nationwide, and No. 6 among Arizona prospects by 247 Sports.
