Drew grew up in Okemos, Michigan, a large suburb of Lansing which borders the campus of Michigan State. His family moved to Lake Oswego, Oregon, where he played peewee-football and continued to play until his Sophomore year at Lake Oswego High School. Eventually the Stanton family moved to Farmington Hills, Michigan, where he graduated from Harrison High School.
Stanton also played baseball batting at .561 as a Junior at Harrison High School.
Stanton redshirted through Michigan State's 2002 campaign before serving as the #2 QB behind Jeff Smoker in 2003. In 2003, he also played on special teams where he made several impressive open field tackles. However, Stanton injured his knee in the Alamo Bowl against the University of Nebraska while covering a punt and had to undergo reconstructive surgery. After becoming the starter in 2004, Drew received regional and national praise for his play on the field and was also named an Academic All-American.
Going into his senior season (2006), Stanton had been mentioned as a potential Heisman Trophy candidate and visited New York twice for the presentation. He had been listed as high as the #2 QB in the 2007 NFL Draft by ESPN. Despite not having any substantial injuries in his high school and early college years, Stanton suffered at least one significant injury in each of 2005, 2006 and 2007.
In 2006, Drew led the Spartans to the largest point margin comeback in NCAA Division I-A history. Against conference foe Northwestern University, he accounted for 331 total yards and three touchdowns, coming back from a 35 point third quarter deficit. He began his prime time performance with an 18-yard TD pass that touched off the improbable comeback. He later ran for a 12-yard score, and completed six straight passes before capping the game-tying march with a 9-yard strike with 3:43 remaining. Stanton eventually directed the drive that resulted in a game-winning field goal to complete a 41-38 victory.
For his career at MSU, Stanton completed 64% of his passes throwing for 6,524 yards, with 42 touchdowns and 28 interceptions while also rushing for another 1,512 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Stanton was selected by the Detroit Lions with the 43rd overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. He was placed on season-ending Injured Reserve during training camp on August 3, 2007 after having knee surgery.
In 2008, Stanton sprained his thumb on his throwing arm during preseason, keeping him out the remainder of the preseason. After Jon Kitna was placed on IR, Stanton moved up to 2nd string QB, behind Dan Orlovsky.
Stanton made his NFL debut in a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars (entering in relief of Daunte Culpepper, whom the Lions had signed only days earlier after Orlovsky suffered a thumb injury). He threw a 1-yard touchdown on his first career passing attempt and finished the game having completed 6 of 8 pass attempts for 94 yards.
The 2009 Season began with Stanton as 3rd string QB behind 2009 NFL Draft first overall choice Matthew Stafford and previous starter Daunte Culpepper. With Stafford injured for the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers, Stanton relieved Culpepper who was also injured during the game. He threw 2 interceptions in a 0-26 loss for the Lions. Stanton appeared again in relief of Culpepper in Week 15 against the Arizona Cardinals. He was 10/19 passing with 1 interception, however he scored on a 1-yard rushing TD on a Draw play - with Arizona winning 24-31. Stanton made his first career start week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers, and promptly threw 3 interceptions.
During the 2010 season, Drew Stanton saw action again as Matt Stafford and Shaun Hill went down with injuries. He came in as relief for Shaun Hill against the Giants and went 19 for 34 for 222 yards, a touchdown and an interception. He made his second career start against the Bears in week 13 and went 16 for 24 for 178 yards and one touchdown. He started the next game against the Green Bay Packers and lead the Lions to a victory with a 13 yard TD pass to Will Heller. Drew also got the Lions their first road win in over 3 years, leading them to a 23-20 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Stanton is the son of Gaylord and Christine Stanton. He hosts his own website with a personal blog at www.drewstanton5.com. He is committed to charity work and created the High 5ive Foundation in support of the Special Olympics and the Children's Miracle Network, his two favorite charities, among others. The name came from the number (5) on his Lions jersey and he says his goal is to have five major fundraisers per year. "This is truly a passion for me, and I try to get involved in the community as much as possible," he says. He is a member of the national fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon at Michigan State University. His agent is Mike McCartney. Married to Kristin Schrock on June 27, 2009. He graduated with a major in kinesiology.
