Early years

Born on post in Fort Lewis, Washington where his mother, Robin Woodson, was stationed in the Army with his father (Andre W.) Woodson grew up a military brat, moving from post to post with his mother after his parents divorced when he was the age of two. He was raised by his mother as she continued her Army service, eventually arriving in Radcliff, Kentucky, in 1994. He attended local schools nearby, Radcliff Middle School and North Hardin High School, both in Radcliff, Kentucky (Hardin County Kentucky, located near Fort Knox, Kentucky), where he Lettered in basketball and football, which eventually led to his being noticed for his football potential by the University of Kentucky.

College career

In 2003, Woodson was recruited to Kentucky. During his freshman season, Woodson served as a backup to Shane Boyd, and appeared in seven games (including one start). For the 2005 season, Woodson was named as the starting quarterback. The Wildcats ended 2005 with a 3-8 record, with André completing nearly 58 percent of his passes, while throwing for 1,644 yards.

After the 2006 spring practice, it appeared Woodson would lose his position to his backup, Curtis Pulley.[1] Spurred by this, Woodson started spending more time lifting weights, began leading the team in practice, and soon became the choice for starting quarterback.[1] The 2006 season, Woodson's junior season, was a break out season, with Woodson leading the Wildcats to a 7-5 regular season, and their first bowl win in 22 years, in the Music City Bowl.[2] Not only did he lead his team but also led the SEC in passing yards with 3,515,[2][3] and became only the second Kentucky quarterback to throw 30 or more touchdowns in a single season. [2]

On September 22, 2007, Woodson broke Trent Dilfer's all-time NCAA record of 271 consecutive pass attempts without an interception against the Arkansas Razorbacks[4]. The streak ended, however, when Woodson threw his first interception in 325 attempts on September 29, 2007 against Florida Atlantic University.[5] Against Florida State in the 2007 Music City Bowl, Woodson broke Danny Wuerffel's SEC record for passing touchdowns in one season. Woodson threw 40 for the season, passing Wuerffel's record by one. He also broke Jared Lorenzen's UK record of 78 career touchdown passes.
