Bryan Randall (born August 16, 1983) is a professional gridiron football quarterback for the Qingdao Clipper of China Arena Football League (CAFL). He was signed by the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent in 2005. He played college football for the Virginia Tech Hokies.
Randall has also been a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Pittsburgh Steelers and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, as well as several indoor football teams.

Early years

Randall attended Bruton High School in Williamsburg, Virginia, where he established new school records for passing yards (6,508) and total offense (8,034 yards). On the final passing attempt of his college career, he broke the school record for touchdown passes (47). He also played on the 2000 AA State Championship basketball team captained by Hughes McLean, Brandon Randall and Albot.

College career

Freshman (2001)

For the 2001 season, Randall served as backup quarterback to starter Grant Noel, seeing limited game action.

Sophomore (2002)

In 2002, Randall came into the game against Louisiana State in relief of Noel, who was being hampered by an injury sustained during spring practice. Randall started the remaining 12 games that season. In a shocking 50-42 overtime loss to Syracuse, Randall passed for 504 yards - a Big East Conference record - and five touchdowns.

Junior (2003)

In 2003, Randall played both basketball and football for VaTech. While playing basketball Randall split the quarterback duties with highly touted redshirt freshman quarterback Marcus Vick. Though Randall started all thirteen games for Virginia Tech, completing 150 of 245 passes for 1,996 yards and 15 touchdowns with eight interceptions, Vick played every game.

Senior (2004)

Following the 2003 season, Marcus Vick ran afoul of the law and was suspended for the 2004 season. Randall, the undisputed senior starter, culminated his college career in 2004, throwing for 2,264 yards and rushing for 511 yards. He led the team to its first ACC Championship and a berth in the 2005 Sugar Bowl, narrowly losing to Auburn.

Professional career

Atlanta Falcons

Despite his success in 2004, Randall went undrafted in the 2005 NFL Draft. As an undrafted free agent, Randall was signed to play Quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons on April 26, 2005, where another former Hokie, Michael Vick, played. Cut on September 5 to meet the NFL roster size limit, he was re-signed the following day to the Falcon's practice squad.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Randall was signed to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad on October 2, 2006 where he spent the 2006 season.

Pittsburgh Steelers

On February 9, 2007, it was announced that the Pittsburgh Steelers had signed Randall. He was assured a chance to play quarterback, something the Falcons nor Buccaneers would do. After the last preseason game with the Steelers, he was cut.


On January 26, 2008, Randall was selected round 1, pick 2 of the inaugural draft by Team Tennessee. However, he was released from his contract when the AAFL postponed its debut season.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers

On May 20, 2008, Randall signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and was the team's third quarterback behind starter Kevin Glenn and backup Ryan Dinwiddie. In the team's 2009 training camp he competed for the second string quarterback behind starter Stefan LeFors, with Richie Williams. He was released on September 23, 2009.

Richmond Revolution

On February 11, 2010, the Richmond Revolution announced they had signed Randall for their inaugural 2010 season. Randall led the Revolution to a league best 13-1 record, and home field throughout the playoffs. Randall threw for 58 touchdowns, running for an additional 12, and throwing for over 2,000 yards in his rookie season in the IFL. On June 23, 2010, Randall was announced as the winner of the 2010 IFL Most Valuable Player award. Despite an MVP performance in the Revolution's inaugural season, Randall was released, along with virtually the entire roster, on December 13, 2010.

Richmond Raiders

Although there was speculation that Randall could sign with the Virginia Destroyers of the United Football League, Randall spent the spring of 2011 playing indoor football again. He signed with the Richmond Raiders of the Southern Indoor Football League, but suffered a season-ending injury on March 19, 2011 in a game against the Trenton Steel. He is no longer listed on their roster.

Allen Wranglers

Randall announced via Twitter that he would be spending the 2012 IFL season in Allen, Texas with former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens. Randall beat out Casey Printers, a former CFL starter, for the starting quarterback position.

Lehigh Valley Steelhawks

Pittsburgh Power
