Matthew Rutledge 'Matt' Schaub (born June 25, 1981) is the starting quarterback for the Houston Texans of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft. He played college football at Virginia. Schaub attended West Chester East High School in West Chester, Pennsylvania, where he lettered in football, basketball and baseball. During his senior year he lead the school's football team to win the Ches-Mont League championship. Schaub enrolled at Virginia in the fall of 1999 and redshirted his true freshman season. In 2000, starter Dan Ellis missed some time due to injury, but fellow redshirt freshman Bryson Spinner received the bulk of playing time in relief. After the 2000 season, coach George Welsh retired and was replaced by Al Groh. Schaub was the starter for the first game of the 2001 season at Wisconsin. Over the 2001 season, Schaub and Spinner split quarterbacking duties nearly evenly.
