Former Oklahoma QB Grady breaks an AFL single-season record: Tommy Grady came to Oklahoma in 2003 a highly rated quarterback prospect loaded with size and skill.

Tough depth charts to climb, a still-haunting decision to transfer and a little bad luck yielded a disappointing college football career for Grady spent mostly on sidelines.

Nine years later, Grady is finally shattering records and leading a football team to success as a starting quarterback.

The crowds are smaller, the competition is weaker and there's much less glory than Grady once dreamed there'd be.

Still, in quarterbacking the Utah Blaze, Grady has become a bona fide Arena Football League superstar.

During the 2012 AFL season, Grady has thrown an AFL single-season record 137 touchdown passes for the Blaze, which enters Sunday's regular-season finale at Philadelphia with a 12-5 record and on a six-game win streak.

Just last week, he tossed a league single-game record 12 touchdowns.

The record-breaking campaign prompted the AFL to ask fans in an online poll Monday if Grady's season is the greatest by an individual in league history. (More at The Oklahoman)
