The laundry list of achievements for ASU signal caller Andrew Walter extends a long way. The Sun Devil quarterback played in 48 games over his career in maroon and gold, starting 35 of them.

85 career touchdown passes? Check.

Throw for over 10,000 career passing yards? Check.

Be the first Sun Devil to throw 3,000 passing yards in a season? Check.

Throw six touchdown passes in a game? Check.

Throw for over 500 yards against a BCS team? Check.

Not too many Sun Devils can boast such an impressive resume, and Walter was the consummate Devil. Both his parents attended Arizona State, and his father played on the baseball team.

Walter was a steadying presence and helped build the foundation for some successful years with Sam Keller and Rudy Carpenter under center. He deserves the 62nd spot on our 100 Day Sun Devil Football Countdown.

Here's the first game that Andrew Walter made a huge impact on Sun Devil Nation. In 2002, ASU was down 22-0 to the San Diego State Aztecs, and Walter came in and blew the doors off, leading the Devils back with four touchdown passes.
