Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES - Former Heisman Trophy finalist and two-time AP All-American quarterback Colt Brennan has been assigned to the LA KISS, the Arena Football League office announced today.

Brennan (6-3, 215, Hawaii) was a backup to future Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart at Mater Dei High School in California before beginning his collegiate career at Colorado in 2003. Upon transferring to Saddleback College in 2004, Brennan earned junior college All-America honors and a walk-on invitation from the University of Hawaii.

In his first season with the Warriors in 2005, Brennan tied or broke eleven school records and led the nation with 4,455 yards of total offense and 35 touchdowns. The following season, he won the Sammy Baugh Trophy as the nation's top passer, finished sixth in Heisman voting and earned AP All-America honors after totaling 5,549 passing yards and a Division I-record 58 touchdown passes. He finished his collegiate career in 2007, again earning AP All-America honors and coming in third in Heisman voting after leading Hawaii to a 12-0 regular season and a berth in the Sugar Bowl. His 20 career 400-yard passing games represents an NCAA record.

The Washington Redskins selected Brennan in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL Draft and he remained with the team until his release in 2010. He also spent time with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League in 2012.

Brennan will compete with veteran J.J. Raterink for the starting quarterback position in Los Angeles.
