Fourth grade quarterback shows off impressive skills in viral video

An entire industry has launched around developing the skills of young quarterbacks, with individual trainers, academies, and year-round seven-on-seven leagues popping up. As a result, young quarterbacks seem more refined than they were years ago.

On Tuesday, SportsCenter posted a video of fourth-grader Sebastian Circo out of Omaha going through passing drills. For a player that young, he has an absolute cannon and some impressive footwork. 

Even NFL quarterbacks took notice. Responding to a joking tweet that called Circo a rehabbing Zach Wilson, the Jets QB got in on the fun.

Obviously there’s a long time to go before Circo is getting real looks from colleges, but he continues to impress. The video shared by SportsCenter was posted to Instagram by a quarterback development company in Illinois called Next Level Athletix two days ago.

A local coach indicates that it is actually older footage of Circo and shared highlights from

Nuggets’ Michael Porter Jr. out for ‘foreseeable future’ with back injury [Video]

The Denver Nuggets will be without Michael Porter Jr. for the “foreseeable future.”

Nuggets head coach Michael Malone said Monday night that Porter is dealing with a back injury he suffered on Saturday against the Houston Rockets, and that he has no idea when he’ll return.

“This is a process where we’re being very cautious, talking to doctors, getting imaging all that kind of stuff,” Malone said, via The Athletic.

“Michael could be back in a week. It could be more than that. I don’t know. When I say foreseeable future, I don’t really know what that means. I just know he’s not playing tonight.”

‘I cannot put a paycheck over principle’ [Video]

Allison Williams is departing ESPN over the company’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate. The 37-year-old college football and basketball reporter joined the network in 2011.

“I have been denied my request for accommodation by ESPN and The Walt Disney Company” Williams began in a video posted to Instagram. “Effective next week, I will be separated from the company.”

The Walt Disney Company, which co-owns ESPN, announced in July that salaried and nonunion hourly U.S. employees must be fully vaccinated in order to return to work. Williams previously said she doesn’t want to get the vaccine while she and her husband try for a second child. (Major ob-gyn and fertility organizations support the vaccine.)
