Preston Earl was a 3-year varsity starter at Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, IL, graduating in 2006. During his career at Stevenson he set and/or broke almost every passing record, including all-time leading passer in yards and touchdowns. Many of his records still stand today. Preston’s statistics were not his only accomplishment in high school. He also quarterbacked two of the four perfect 9-0 seasons in a very tough and competitive North Suburban Conference.

Preston left ISU before his senior season and transferred to Benedictine University in Lisle, IL. In the summer prior to starting his first year at BU, Preston met Jeff Christensen and began to work with him. Jeff worked with Preston to improve every aspect of his quarterbacking skill set. It worked. The results were 28 touchdowns, 2500 yards passing, 1st team All-NAC & Offensive MVP at Benedictine. He also finished 3rd in the country in passer efficiency just behind Matt Blanchard and Alex Tanney, both of whom made NFL rosters in 2012. Preston also owns single season TD record and pass efficiency records for the Eagles. BU also received its first conference championship and playoff appearance in over 60 years.
