Football: Steve Clarkson is coming to the Rose Bowl
You have to give private quarterback guru Steve Clarkson credit for producing lots of hype. His 15-city "Dreammaker" tour is coming to the Rose Bowl on Saturday, with Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel among his helpers.
Clarkson will be training top young quarterbacks and searching for the next good ones. Seven will be selected during his tour to participate in a competition this summer in Maui.
Participants can range in age between sixth and 12th grade. Of course, Clarkson is the private coach for seventh-grader David Sills, who USC has already offered a scholarship. But I have a feeling there won't be any more offers like that because it didn't exactly come off as a positive move.
