Durant was impressive early on, establishing school records at Wilson High School, in Florence, SC, with 2,446 passing yards and 25 touchdown passes as a sophomore. Durant signed a letter of intent to play college football at the University of North Carolina in 2000. In 2001, during his first NCAA season, he established school freshman records with 17 touchdown passes, 142 completions, 1843 passing yards and 1,971 yards of total offence. In 2007, Durant was on the sidelines as starting quarterback Kerry Joseph led Roughriders to a victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the Grey Cup. During the 2010 campaign, Durant the first Roughrider quarterback to throw for over 5,000 yards in a season since former head coach Kent Austin. Durant was selected as the Roughriders’ nominee for the CFL Most Outstanding Player Award. The 2013 season was arguably the best season of Durant’s career. He set career highs in touchdowns, with 31, while limiting his interceptions to only 12. He began the year having attempted 212 consecutive pass attempts without being intercepted. He also set a career high for passer rating with 95.7. He led the Riders to an 11-7 record and home-field in the Western Semi-Finals against the BC Lions where several of his rushing plays won the game for the Riders. After beating Calgary in the Western Final, Durant led the Riders to their fourth Grey Cup championship on their home turf at Mosaic Stadium.
