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

LSU fans couldn’t help but be in awe of Auburn quarterback Bo Nix during Saturday night’s SEC clash.

Trailing 13-0 in the second quarter and finding himself in LSU territory, Nix knew he needed to make a play for Auburn. He did just that.

Upon receiving the snap, Nix rolled to his right only to find several LSU defenders in his way. He then proceeded to roll back left and avoid multiple LSU defenders along the way before throwing a prayer to the end-zone which was caught for a highlight-play touchdown.

This was nasty.

Even LSU fans couldn’t believe it.

We’ve seen plenty of fans make similar faces in reaction to Bo Nix plays over the years. That includes both the good and the bad.

Nix is a home-run hitter. Sometimes it costs Auburn. Other times it results in big plays. Luckily for Auburn, it

In most instances within sports, an opposing player going down with an injury during play is an opportunity to take a big advantage. But at a recent high school football game, one player saw an injured opponent as an opportunity to do something nice.

During a recent high school football game in Iowa between Charles City and New Hampton, wide receiver Mario Hoefer of Charles City was photographed helping out New Hampton’s Carter Steinlage, who’s leg was cramping during the game. The photo has since gone viral.

“I knew exactly how that felt,” Hoefer said, via the GlobeGazette. “My first reaction was, ‘Okay there’s no trainers over here yet.’ So I’m about to help stretch him out. I did that for a bit and waited for the trainers to come over.”

ESPN SportsCenter called what Hoefer did “true sportsmanship” and shared the

The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Alabama RB Najee Harris in the first round in part because they believed he could be the next Derrick Henry. After this stiff arm from Harris, it looks like they may have been right on the money.

In the first half of today’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders, Harris took the ball up the right sideline and came face-to-face with a Raiders defender. That Raiders player quickly regretted trying to tackle Harris high.

Harris stuck out his left arm shoved the defender away like he was pushing over a rack of clothing. The defender was turned completely onto his back as Harris kept running with the ball.

Harris was eventually tackled and taken down. But not before a big gain.

Najee Harris was a dominating force at Alabama between 2019 and 2020. Last year he finished
