He's known as the Doogie Howser of quarterbacks. He’s the seventh-grade quarterback who committed to USC. Now a high school freshman, David Sills V is becoming one of the top passers in the class of 2015.
Full Ride Episode 1: Part 3 of 5
Full Ride goes behind the scenes to see how the quarterback prodigy is developing and to dispel rumors of Sills being groomed in similar fashion to former Trojans quarterback Todd Marinovich.
The 15-year-old signal-caller from Bear, Delaware completed 66 percent of his passes for 2,340 yards and 28 touchdowns as a freshman. Sills trains with quarterback guru Steve Clarkson, who has been trusted to coach two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and 2012 Heisman Trophy front runner Matt Barkley.
NFL legend Joe Montana even sent his two sons to learn from Clarkson.
So, is Sills the next Marinovich? Sills' father didn't shy away from bringing up the troubled former USC passer's name during our interview, but he denied that the situations were similar.
After spending the day with Sills and his team, we found the young QB to be nothing short of a great kid who loves football.
