The New York Jets' Mark Sanchez and Supermodel Hilary Rhoda

Updated on February 19, 2018

At the behest of a fellow Hubber who is no doubt a New York Jets fan, I decided to try my pen and keyboard at writing a hub on New York Jets sensation and rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez. When doing so, I also found an absolute gem in Supermodel Hilary Rhoda or Sanchez’ better-half which made me even more envious of him. Although I am a die-hard New York Giants fan having written hubs on Giants Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor, current Giants quarterback Eli Manning, and a tribute titled “Ode to the Big Blue Wrecking Crew,” I thought it would be interesting, if anything else, to write a hub on him, as Mark Sanchez represents hope to the hearts and minds of New York Jets fans and is a fascinating person in his own right.

Mark Sanchez Bio

Mark Sanchez was born on November 11, 1986 in Long Beach, California. In his early years, Sanchez attended Santa Margarita Catholic for his first two years of high school. On his very first attempt in high school as a sophomore quarterback went for 55 yards and a touchdown. His close proximity to the University of Southern California would prove beneficial to him, as he would go on to become a ball boy for future USC Heisman Trophy winner Carson Palmer and future Florida state quarterback Chris Rix. Sanchez would then go on to Mission Viejo High School to play for his high school football coach Bob Johnson, who is the former father of USC and NFL quarterback Rob Johnson. Here is a list of some of his stats and accomplishments:

  • As a junior at Mission Viejo High School, he threw for 2,600 yards for 29 touchdowns against only 4 interception
  • He also completed 75% of his passes.
  • Was named first team all-league, all-county, and was a CIF (California Interscholastic Federation) selection
  • Carried a 3.7 GPA
  • Was president of the student government and captain of the basketball team
  • As a senior, he completed 114 of 186 passes for 1,746 yards for 16 touchdowns against only 2 interceptions while leading his team to a division championship
  • After 2 years as a Mission Viejo High School Diablo quarterback, his record was an incredible 27-1
  • In 2004, he was named Player of the Year by several major college recruiters
  • In 2005, he was regarded as the best high school quarterback in the nation
  • Was highly sought after by recruiters from top colleges and universities such as Notre Dame, Nebraska, Ohio State, and Texas, but of course chose USC during the summer before his senior year
  • One of the biggest factors in his decision to attend USC was the presence of USC football coach whose style of play likens that of sophisticated pro-style NFL offense
  • Sanchez also credits Carson Palmer as a key contributor in his decision to play football for USC

Arrested Development

As good as Mark Sanchez football career went up until this point, all was not "roses." In April of 2006, Sanchez was arrested after a female student accused him of sexual assault. He was released from jail the following day after posting a $200,000 bail but USC put him on interim suspension for the fall semester in which he was suspended from the team but was allowed to take his finals albeit under the supervision of campus security. On June 3, 2006 the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office announced that Sanchez was cleared on all charges due to a "lack of sufficient evidence beyond a reasonable doubt," noting that the case was "essentially a 'one-on-one' allegation."

His First Start as a Trojan

After waiting on the sidelines for more than a season, Mark Sanchez was finally given the nod from USC head coach Pete Carroll to start at quarterback against the Arizona Wildcats. On October 13, 2007, he led the Trojans 20-13, but only after a shaky start which Sanchez throw two key interceptions which allowed Arizona to tie the game right before halftime. However, Sanchez would rebound, completing 11 of 15 of his passes for 74 yards and a touchdown. One of his key plays was a 10-yard run for a first-down. He would finish the day going 19 of 31, for 130 yards and averaged 4.1 yards per catch with one touchdown against 2 interceptions.

His 2008 Season as a Trojan

In his first game as the undisputed starting quarterback of the Trojans in the opener against the Virginia Cavaliers, Mark Sanchez threw for a career-best 338 yards while completing 26 of 35 for 3 touchdowns and one interception.  His performance won him the O'Brien Quarterback of the week which garnered him some attention for the Heisman Award.  With Sanchez behind center, the USC Trojans would go on to amass a 12-1 record and place No. 2 in the Coaches Poll and No. 3 in the AP Poll.  Sanchez would go on to win the Rose Bowl's Offensive MVP of the Game in which he led the Trojans to a 34-28 victory against Penn State in Pasadena, CA.  He passed for 419 yards.  In all, he scored a total of 5 touchdowns--4 through the air and one in which he ran in.

His controversial decision to make himself eligible for the 2009 NFL Draft was not favored by head coach Pete Carroll.  The video to the right shows his reluctance to approve Sanchez' decision to do so.

Mark Sanchez' Impact on the Latino Community

As a third-generation Mexican-American at the University of Southern California, Sanchez became the face of Mexican-Americans everywhere when he was elevated to prominence. While playing quarterback and attending USC, he was constantly in the spotlight of the city of Los Angeles where more than 4.6 million Latinos reside and which three-quarters are of Mexican descent. His success and stardom made him a role model for children of all races and backgrounds. Some other notable Mexican-American quarterbacks in the NFL include Jim Plunkett, Joe Kapp, Jeff Garcia, Tony Romo, and Marc Bulger, but unlike them, Sanchez is full-blooded Mexican American. Many USC fans played up on his ethnicity by wearing such garb as sarapes, lucha libre masks, and "¡Viva Sanchez¡" T-shirts. His rise to fame is just as significant as boxer Oscar De La Hoya's and pitcher Fernando Valenzuela's rise to fame and fortune.

A Crisp Start in the Big Apple

Not since Jets Legend “Broadway” Joe Namath have Jet fans been this excited by a quarterback. In the first-round of the 2009 NFL Draft, the New York Jets selected USC Trojan quarterback Mark Sanchez with the fifth-overall pick. The Jets had to trade three players and give up two picks to make the trade possible. The only quarterback in the draft that was selected ahead of Sanchez was Matthew Stafford who was drafted by the Detroit Lions first overall. While Stafford was given a 6-year, $41.7 million contract, Sanchez was given a 5-year contract in which he will make at least $28 million and up to $60 million with incentives, which marks the biggest contract ever given to a New York Jet. “This is just the beginning,” Sanchez said. “I’ll be working every day to justify this contract.”

And just like he said, Sanchez proved just that by beating out competitor Kellen Clemens. In the early going, the Jets’ Head Coach Rex Ryan noted that Sanchez had to work on his cadence and volume before the snap of the ball. During drills, Sanchez struggled reading Ryan’s swarming defensive schemes in which Sanchez actually threw more interceptions and didn’t perform as well as Clemens during training camp but in the end, his bigger contract and stronger arm proved worthy enough to take on starting spot. “You gain confidence as you go,” Sanchez said. “Now, I am starting to really feel the defense and see what is going on. As difficult as our defense can be, I am starting to get an idea.”

Sanchez' Debut as a Jet

Mark Sanchez is certainly picking up where he left off in USC, winning his first two games as a New York Jet against the Tennessee Titans and more notably, the hated New England Patriots. Jets coach Rex Ryan certainly took a page out of former Giants Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo when preparing for the Patriots, as he rushed 5 or 6 men on defensive over 20 times in just that one game. Although the Patriots' Tom Brady was not sacked even once, he was hit a dozen times which consequently caused him to throw the ball sooner than he wanted to and one of his passes was picked off by Jets cornerback Darelle Revis. Also important to note is that all of the Patriots' points came off the leg of kicker Stephen Gotskowski. The Patriots couldn't score one touchdown against the Jets. The game marked the first time the Jets beat the Patriots at home after eight years. It also marked Sanchez' second win in as many tries. Sanchez completed 14 of 22 passes for 163 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions. His QB rating was an impressive 101.1 while Tom Brady's was a woeful 53.1. The game certainly garnered Sanchez even more fan fare as the Jets huge victory proved that they could compete with the very best the NFL had to offer. I'm sure that Sanchez jerseys were selling like hotcakes right after the game.

The "Sanchize" Quarterback

While listening to ESPN radio, I once heard the host refer to Mark as "The Sanchize" of the New York Jets. I found this both funny and amusing but it all actuality, it was the truth. If Jerry West is the face of the NBA (the actual NBA logo is modeled after him) and Derek Jeter is the face of the New York Yankees, it would make perfect sense that Mark Sanchez be the face of the New York Jets. I can't think of anything better for a team that is still struggling to find its identity and in its first season with a first-year head coach in Rex Ryan.  Despite being a huge fan of the New York Giants, I will however watch Mark Sanchez with great interest and curiosity.  Maybe one day the Jets and Giants will have a All-New York Superbowl!  Hey, anything can happen, right?

The Next Namath?

I'm sure that Mark Sanchez got some schlack for posing for GQ magazine. Please click here for the article. However, one of the benefits of doing so, aside from becoming a international heartthrob overnight, was his courting of Supermodel Hilary Rhoda, who is also a fast-rising star in the public eye. The two met on their Spring 2009 shoot and have since been very intimate with each other. I can't help but it, but he looks a lot like David Hasselhoff in his younger days in these photos, courtesy of GQ Magazine. The two have been dating ever since. In either case, it's tough for me to dislike the guy, aside from his incredible potential and talent as a quarterback. I mean look who he gets to come home to! I debated on splitting this hub into two separate hubs, but in the end, I felt that these two love birds were inseparable and so belong together. Please enjoy.

Supermodel Hilary Rhoda

Rhoda graduated from the Academy of the Holy Cross, an all-girls Catholic school in her native Maryland where she played field hockey and lacrosse.  She was discovered by at a ProScout event in Washington, DC.  Shortly after which she was represented by Women Model Management and was soon modeling for Abercrombie and Hollister.  Here is a quick bio:

      i think its wrong that you are saying its our fault she came 2nd. phlilip phlilips won because he was liked more obviously. im from the uk and both acts are great and deserve a chance and if she's good enough she'll make it without the show. its wrong that you are basically not allowing other people to share an opinion by saying,quote,'because you are not voting for who is really great' she didn't win because people didn't think she was talented. she came 2nd because phlilips was liked more.

      This is the time for optimism!Barring major inujry to several players, scandal or handshake disasters, here's how I see it play out.Week 1: at Green Bay. The Niners defense is one we'll talk about for decades. Legendary. They will turn it on again and start right off with that magic against Green Bay. Aaron will scramble and run for yards when he can't throw and gets flushed from the pocket, but he can't win the game himself. 27-17 Niners.Week 2: vs. Detroit. Win. Tough, physical game. Victory with a last-second field goal. Handshake is very respectful. 23-20 Niners.Week 3: at Minnesota. Vikings still aren't themselves. Niners win 27-7.Week 4: at New York Jets. Niners win in overtime. They're on a roll, now! 23-20.Week 5: vs. Buffalo. Conservative play-calling gets another win. 16-3 Niners!Week 6: vs. New York Giants. Damn. All that water-cooler talk about a perfect season dashed to bits. What is it about those Giants? They come into Candlestick and surprise us. Team has a bit of a let-down this week. Giants win. 27-17.Week 7: vs. Seattle, Thursday. Rebound with a tough game. An inujry plagues the team. Niners still win 26-20.Week 8: at Arizona. Niners light it up for Monday night. Plenty of rest. Plenty of time to game-plan. Defense contributes to the scoring. Niners 34-13.Week 9: Bye. It will come in handy. Injuries have mounted, but the key players come back healthy after the bye week.Week 10: vs. St. Louis. Best offensive showing of the year, Harbaugh crafts a great game. Niners win 44-14.Week 11: vs. Chicago. Close game. Niners get a reputation for styling their game different each week. Niners do what it takes, win 21-20.Week 12: at New Orleans. The Niners put the Saints into a tailspin with this game. Niners win 30-24.Week 13: at St. Louis. Sorry, St. Louis. Niners win 28-10.Week 14: vs. Miami. Rainy-day game. Niners win one in the mud, gaining most of their yards on the ground, plus one long and unexpected pass play. Niners 19-0.Week 15: at New England. Great game. This one gets everyone talking about Niners going to the Super Bowl! Niners win 27-14.Week 16: at Seattle. Niners have clinched the division. Rest most of their playmakers. Start focusing on the playoffs. Lose 24-17.Week 17: vs. Arizona. Defensive backups put an exclamation point on the year. Niners win, 24-3.Sure, call me crazy at 14-2. But I also made a crazy bet last year that the Niners would play in the Championship game. Who would have guessed the team was a missed play away from going to the Super Bowl? I'm convinced they would have won it, too. Damn. That still smarts a little.Can't wait for this year!

      Not a problem, AdamGee. My buddy here at HubPages, Wavegirl22 actually was the one that recommended that I do so a few months ago. Of course while doing so, I became amazed at just how talented he was and thought the higher-ups in the NFL didn't give him enough credit (he should've been selected much higher). I was really rooting for the Jets when the Giants faltered. Maybe one day we're see a Big Apple Superbowl ;) Thanks for the comment.

      Thanks for honoring the player who represents all my hopes for one of my teams winning a championship! I love my Mets and Knicks, but I think they're both a little further a way than the Jets.. Good article, Dohn!

      Thanks Mitch. He did lead his team to the AFC Championship and played valiantly. He certainly does have something to build upon. Maybe one day he can lead his team to the Superbowl as he was only one game away from doing so. Thanks for the comment.

      Sanchez looked inpressive the first couple of games of the season, but he needs to learn to be more focused on the game and not the girl he hopes to get.

      dohn121 8 years ago from Hudson Valley, New York

      Hey, Mike. Thank you for commenting. A lot of credit has to be given to Alan Faneca. He's one of the players that deserve a lot of credit for the Jets season. It just goes to show you how much of a difference one player can make on a team. Although I am a die-hard Giants fan, I would like to see the Jets win another Super Bowl before I croak :D Here's to NY!

      He may be a rookie quarterback with a hot babe on his arm, but he also is in the AFC Championship game this weekend and may be in the Superbowl. He has come a long way this season. The future is looking bright for the Jets fan down the road.

      dohn121 8 years ago from Hudson Valley, New York

      Thanks for the comment, bengriston, I wholeheartedly agree with you. His career thus far reminds me a lot of a certain Dan Marino who took his young team to the Super Bowl as a rookie, but in the end, couldn't pull off the miracle...The Jets do have a legitimate shot just like Marino's Dolphins that year. It'll be interesting to see what happens!

      It's tough to be a pro-athlete in New York City. Everyone hates you when you lose and everyone loves you when you win! With that said, it certainly helps to have a "pretty face" if you're going to be splashed all over the papers everyday :D Thank you again!

      Hey, John. I totally agree with you. I don't think USC is going to beat Cal, so that's another loss for the Trojans. Whoever does win the National title this year is going to have at least one loss! Pete Carroll definitely knew what he was losing when Sanchez left. Now Sanchez has a realistic shot at Rookie of the Year, a Pro Bowl birth and the opportunity to bring the Jets back to the playoffs in only his first year. He already broke a NFL record by winning his first 3 games in as many games! Thanks, buddy.

      TampaBayBucs 8 years ago

      Hey Dohn,

      I don't think Sanchez screwed over USC. Pete Carroll was only pissed at the press conference because he knew he didn't have an adequate QB coming into this season, and hence cried that he didn't think Sanchez was ready for the next level. Seeing how well Sanchez is playing it proves what Carroll's only motivation was for himself! He knew he was in for a long 2009 season once Sanchez left. Barkley and Corp aren't ready yet.

      USC will suffer another loss or two before the season is over due to lack of experience at the QB position.

      Hey, thank you so much for that, mtsi1098. I am happy for the Jets organization for acquiring Mark Sanchez, as they really haven't had much to rally around since perhaps Keyshawn Johnson. For them to stick it to the Patriots was incredible to watch. Thank you again.

You sound a bit like Pete Carroll and it's understandable. He really did screw USC! Thanks for telling it like it is, as always ;) Thanks!

      He's NOT the next Joe Namath.He screwed over USC. Being a pretty boy helps make him a media star, but does it help him play better? And does having a supermodel girlfriend make you play better? Doesn't seem to be working that way for Mr. Brady or Mr. Romo (I know Tony and Jesica are no longer together).

      Don't get me wrong.The guy's good looking.

      But give me cute little Eli any day! Gooooo Giants!

      I'll admit, during the Jets/Patriots game I was glued to my seat. I wanted so much for the Patriots to lose or for the Jets to win :D I really hate those guys. The crazy thing is that were it not for Belicheck, we'd only have one Superbowl title instead of 3. Isn't that awful? Funny you brought up those great days when the Jets played the Mairinos--I mean the Dolphins. It didn't matter if either team was on the cusp of a playoff or just tanking the season--the games were always good and would come down to the wire. Overall, they were just fascinating to watch. Thank you, wavegirl! I hope to hear from you soon :) Until then, Go Big Blue!

      I must say since Sanchez started wearing the green jersey of the Jets I am once again watching them (last time I rooted for them was in the infamous Mud Bowl against the Dolphins) and this Hub has me even more fascinated and ready to once again tune them in . thanks for this one dohn! And like you I am a die hard go Blue Giant fan :)

      Hey, thanks Jess-James. She's absolutely stunning. Her eyes are alluring to me. Pending injury, I believe that Mark Sanchez is the real deal. He's the type of guy you build around, like a Peyton or an Eli Manning! There's no reason why the Jets in 2 or 3 years can't win a Super Bowl with him. Thanks again, buddy!

      I loved this Hub, I do not like the Jets, but Mark Sanchez I feel is a great QB and a great person and he apparently has someone great to go home too. And Dohn you're right if he ever has to leave the league he probably could get into modelling haha. Keep up the great work. And WOW! She's a beauty.

      Hey, thank you Shamel! Rhoda is definitely a hottie. If ever he fails at the QB position, I'm sure he could get into modeling with his girlfriend. I'm sure he has some connections, LOL. Thank you for reading.

      I'll have to agree with you Drew. I just couldn't bare to have 29 pictures...I have odd numbers. It's gotta stay for now. Marisa Miller is hot too, I'll give you that!

      Thank you again, Paradise7. This hub wasn't supposed to be as long, but I hope that the content does pay off. Your comments are always welcome!
