Football: David Sills is cool, calm and a 13-year-old

February 27, 2010 |  2:18 pm

David Sills left the snow of Delaware to show up in the rain at the Rose Bowl on Saturday to participate among hundreds of quarterbacks trying to impress Steve Clarkson in his search for top players of the future.

Except Sills might have been the most well-known teenager in attendance ever since the 13-year-old seventh-grader announced he had committed to USC.

I don't know what kind of player he's going to become, but I am impressed at Sills' ability to handle the media attention. He was getting interviewed left and right and showing he can handle questions and scrutiny.

That's the first step toward being a quarterback, and he's on the right track. See for yourself in the interview below.
