UConn’s become something like a trick shot capital of the college world. First you had Caroline Doty releasing her video, then Johnny McEntee taking the web by storm in his. Shortly in their wake were the copycats, like the Division III quarterback who tries to match Johnny throw-for-throw, and even the Washington State long snapper who is trying to get himself a job in the NFL.
None of them, however, can match what this little guy pulls off in his video, which is make an impressive set of throws despite being only eight years old!
This is Daron Bryden, and according to this video, he is only eight years old and is one of the best youth quarterbacks in the nation. Also according to his father, who tweeted this video to us yesterday, Daron wants to be the quarterback for UConn in the future. I have to admit, I don’t know many eight year olds who can pull these throws off, and I know for a fact that I couldn’t have when I was eight (though I might be able to pull one or two off today… if you gave me a couple of hours.)
Keep up the hard work Daron, if you stay at it then hopefully my successors 10 years from now will be writing about you and the UConn football team. If nothing else, this is a good video to keep in your back pocket, I guarantee it’ll make your future birthday/graduation/whatever parties a lot more exciting.
