Wilson There were nearly 95 quarterbacks who came out to the Steve Clarkson QB Academy last weekend at Glendale College, but the player who had Clarkson gushing was a 6-foot-4 junior wide receiver from Los Angeles Wilson, Anthony Denham.

"He had unbelievable athleticism and speed," Clarkson said of Denham, who caught nine touchdown passes last season.

Among the quarterbacks who made a positive first impression was a 6-3 eighth-grader from Claremont, Kelly Hilinski, and junior Tyler Stirewalt from San Bernardino Aquinas.

Clarkson said another newcomer he saw for the first time who did well was eighth-grader Kevin Carrasco, who will be a freshman at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame in the fall.
