Andy Dalton attended Katy High School in Katy, Texas. He led the Tigers to the state finals his senior year in 2005. That year, he was named theGreater Houston Area offensive player of the year by the Houston Chronicle. During his high school career, Dalton completed 80 percent of his passes for 15,550 yards with 70 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Entering the 2007 season, Dalton was in competition with Jackson to be the starting quarterback. Two weeks before the season opener against Baylor, TCU head coach Gary Patterson named Dalton the starter. After going 8-5 as a freshman, he would accumulate a record of 34-3 as a starter for the rest of his career at TCU. He missed just two games. On September 4, 2010, Andy Dalton recorded his thirtieth victory as the Horned Frogs starting quarterback, passing Sammy Baugh as TCU's all-time wins leader. Against Baylor, Dalton completed 21 of 23 pass attempts for 267 yards and two touchdowns, and was named the Mountain West Conference offensive player of the week. On January 1, 2011, Dalton, who completed 194 of 293 passes for 2638 yards for 26 touchdowns during his senior season, led his team to a victory in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
After an off-season dominated by the threat of a lockout, which could have endangered part or all of the 2011 NFL season, there was much speculation over whom would be the Bengals' starting quarterback: Dalton or recently-signed veteran free agent Bruce Gradkowski. Carson Palmer, the first overall draft pick in 2003, demanded to be traded or released; Bengals owner Mike Brown refused to do either. The lockout was averted. On August 8, 2011, before their first pre-season game versus the Detroit Lions, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis released his first depth chart per NFL rules, but noted that it meant little; he was just following the NFL's rules. On the chart, Andy Dalton was listed as the first-string quarterback, followed by Gradkowski.
