Born February 17, 1959
Career information Year(s) 1981–1988 NFL Draft 1981 / Round: 2 / Pick: 33 College Portland State Professional teams Career stats TD-INT 136-90 Yards 22,771 QB Rating 82.7 Stats at NFL.com Career highlights and awards
Lomax was a standout college player at Portland State University, going from fifth-string freshman quarterback on partial scholarship to emergency starter to NCAA legend. By the end of his college career, Neil Lomax held 90 NCAA records, including one game where he threw for seven touchdown passes in a single quarter.
He was drafted fifth by the-then St. Louis Cardinals in the second round of the 1981 NFL Draft. Despite his college heroics, he had an up-and-down 9-year career for some very mediocre Cardinals teams, displaying brilliance in his two Pro Bowl years (1984 and 1987), but also occasionally playing poorly enough to be benched.
He threw for 4614 yards in 1984, good for twelfth place all time for most passing yards in a season.
He was forced to retire before the 1990 season due to a nagging leg problem that was later diagnosed as a severely arthritic hip. In 1991, he underwent hip replacement surgery.
Lomax is the president of ProMax Event Management and an avid golfer. For the 2005 OSAA Football season, Lomax served as offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for the Tigard High School Tigers in Tigard, Oregon. He was inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 1993 and into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1996.
Lomax and his wife Laurie live in Lake Oswego, Oregon. They have four children: the oldest, Nick, was a quarterback at Boise State and is now attending Oregon State University; his daughter Ali plays basketball for the women's basketball team at Westmont College, his second son, Jack, was a quarterback at Lake Oswego High School and is now a sophomore quarterback at Oregon State; and his youngest son Mitch played for Lake Oswego Little League's Oregon state championship baseball team.
