Early years

Craig played high school football for Mattie T. Blount High School for legendary coach Ben Harris. He helped lead his team to two state championships in 1990 and 1992.

College career

Craig played college football at Auburn University from 1993-1997, where he wore jersey number 16. He was redshirted for the undefeated 1993 season, during Coach Terry Bowden's first year, then served as the backup quarterback to starter Patrick Nix during 1994 and 1995 (and was MVP of the spring game). Occasionally during those two seasons he would enter the game at quarterback in place of Nix in goalline situations, where his running ability could be put to good use.

He was named Auburn's starting quarterback for the 1996 and 1997 seasons. He led Auburn to victory over Army in the Independence Bowl in 1996; including setting Auburn offensive team record of 588 total yards in a 62-0 victory over Fresno State. He also prevailed in bowl vicotryover Clemson University in the Peach Bowl in 1997. In that ten-win senior season, he also led the Tigers to the SEC Western Division title and a berth in the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta. Despite a strong performance by Craig, Auburn lost the game to Peyton Manning's highly favored Tennessee Volunteers, 30-29.

Professional career

Dameyune Craig's jersey from his NFL Europa stint with the Scottish Claymores hangs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. A placard to explain his jersey's presence — his professional American football-record 611 yards passing in a game between the Claymores and the Frankfurt Galaxy on May 22, 1999.
