The Deuce was a wide receiver and kick return specialist in the National Football League (NFL) for seven seasons. He played college football for the University of Alabama, where he was an All-American and a member of Alabama’s 1992 national championship team. A second-round pick in the 1994 NFL Draft, he played professionally for the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings.
Palmer was born in Birmingham, Alabama. He attended Jackson-Olin High School in Birmingham, where he was the star quarterback and played a variety of other positions for the Jackson-Olin Mustangs high school football team.
While attending the University of Alabama, Palmer played for the Alabama Crimson Tide football from 1991 to 1993, where he wore jersey No. 2 and earned the nickname “The Deuce.”
He was recruited to play wide receiver, but his athletic abilities permitted him to fill a variety of roles. He often took snaps directly under center and ran to the right side of the line, making him one of the first “wildcat” quarterbacks.
Palmer became the team’s first 1,000-yard receiver in a single season.
Following his junior season, Palmer was recognized as a consensus first-team All-American and was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, for which he finished third in the voting.
