Biography

Kellen Clemens will play his third season with the Chargers in 2016. A second-round pick of the New York Jets in 2006, Clemens’ career has taken him to the Jets, Washington, Houston and the St. Louis Rams. His resume boasts 21 NFL starts. Clemens started the last nine games for the Rams in 2013, leading them to wins in four of their last seven games.

Clemens grew up in Burns, Oregon, a\a cowboy town located in the southeast corner of the state that was more than 100 miles removed from the nearest interstate. His biological father, Vernon Vincent, was killed in a mill accident when Kellen was just six months old and his mother remarried John Clemens a couple of years later. After remarrying, the family moved onto a 3,500-acre Black Angus beef cattle ranch that had been in the Clemens family for six generations since 1870. Located in Harney County in Ore., the family’s home was actually the county’s first school house before it became an actual working ranch. As a child, Clemens worked on the ranch, doing things like herding cattle, bailing hay and fixing machinery. It’s also where he learned to play football and he often trained by dragging tractor tires through the hay fields. John Clemens played defensive back at Portland State in the early 1980s and his grandfather, Delmer Clemens, played at Oregon in the 1950s.

Prior to enrolling at Oregon, Kellen prepped at Burns High School where he set state records for passing yards and touchdowns. He went 31-7 as a starter and became the only player from the state to earn Parade Magazine All-America honors. He led the Hilanders to the state finals as a senior.

At Oregon, Clemens set single-season passing records and he finished his career as the Ducks’ third-all-time leading passer in both yards and touchdowns. Unfortunately, his career ended prematurely when he broke his leg in the eighth game of his senior season as result of a horse-collar tackle during a game. Still enamored with his upside, the Jets drafted Clemens in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft.

A practicing Roman Catholic, Clemens married his wife, Nicole, while playing at Oregon. She attended the University of San Diego. The couple has three children: Kate, Grant and Scarlett. In 2008, Clemens, Nicole and young daughter, Kate, attended a mass conducted by Pope Benedict in Washington D.C., and after the mass as part of the Papal procession, the Pope walked by and blessed the couple’s daughter.

Clemens has four sisters, two of whom, Maria and Jessica, played college volleyball at Portland State after winning state championships in volleyball, basketball and track at Burns High.
