By Super Scout Max Emfinger
DAVID SILLS V OF WEST VIRGINIA
Super-Star Wide Receiver David Sills V (#13) and Super-Star Quarterback Will Grier (#7) are Both Returning to West Virginia for The 2018 Season!
All of The Big-12 Teams are Certainly Aware of This Sensational Passing Duo and What they can do For The West Virginia Mountaineers.
“I look forward to having Another Year with All of My West Virginia Teammates. It is Very Important to me To Finish my Education and To Help The Mountaineers To win a Big 12 Championship. West Virginia Holds a Special Place in my Heart, and I am looking forward to seeing what Our Mountaineers Team Can Accomplish in The 2018 Season.”
Oklahoma State Wide Receiver James Washington was Named as The 2017 Biletnikoff Award Winner, while West Virginia Wide Receiver David Sills V Finished as The Runner-Up.
Sills V (6-4, 205, 4.48) Caught 60 Passes for 980-Yards and an Incredible National-Leading 18 Touchdowns in 2017 and he Joined A.J. Brown, Marquis Brown, K’Neal Harry, Anthony Johnson, and Deebo Samuel as being Named as a 2017 Fred Biletnikoff Award Finalist.
“David proved this year that he can be he one of the Best Wide Receivers in All of College Football,” West Virginia Head Football Coach Dana Holgorsen said. “Another Season will help him improve in all areas, and our fans will be excited to see him Team-Up Again with Quarterback Will Grier for The 2018 Football Season.”
West Virginia Head Football Coach Dana Holgorsen has High Expectations for his 2018 Mountaineers Team That Features Two Heisman Trophy Candidates (Grier and Sills V) and a 2016 Fred Biletnikoff Runner-Up (Sills V) on Offense, a Second Team 2017 All American Weakside Linebacker (David Long) on Defense and Experience at Every Position.
One of The Fascinating Facts about West Virginia Head Coach Dana Holgorsen is that he and I were Good Friends when he was Wide Receiver Coach for Head Coach Mike Leach at Texas Tech. I was with The Texas Tech Red Raider Team when they Played in The Alamo Bowl Game in 2001 and again in 2002 when they played in The Tangerine Bowl Game. Coach Holgorsen Brought The Texas Tech “Air-Raid” Offense with him To The Mountaineers Offense that Grier and Sills V Run-To-Perfection.
Sills V Made Unbelievable History in 2010, as a Seventh Grade Quarterback, when he was Offered a Scholarship To-Play Football at Southern California by Coach Lane Kiffin. Sills V got More Incredible National Attention, when he gave The Trojans a Verbal Commitment To Play Football for Southern Cal.
Then in 2014, Sills V Decommitted from Southern Cal and in 2015, David Sills VSigned a National Letter of Intent To Play for West Virginia as a Quarterback. So Sills began his College Career as a Quarterback in The West Virginia “Air-Raid” Offense, but after a few games on The Scout Team as a Wide Receiver, Coach Dana Holgorsen Moved Wide Receiver Sills V Up to The Varsity.
On October 17, 2015, in Game #6 For West Virginia, Sills V made his Collegiate Debut against The Baylor Bears and in That Game, Sills V Caught 2 Passes for 64-Yards. His Second Collegiate Catch was an Incredible 35-Yard Touchdown-Catch. This Catch was an Unbelievable Catch, but Later in the Season, in The 2016 Cactus Bowl Against Arizona State, and K’Neal Harry, he made the Game-Winning Touchdown Catch and Ended his True Freshman Season with 7 Catches for 131-Yards.
Then During 2016 Spring Training, Sills V Divided His Time Between Quarterback and Wide Receiver, but After The 2016 West Virginia Spring Game, his Chances of Playing Quarterback were Very Low. With Two Quarterbacks Ahead of him, on The Depth Chart and Former Florida Starting Quarterback Will Grier Scheduled to Become Eligible to play for The Mountaineers in 2017, it Appeared Highly Unlikely that Sills V would ever get a Chance To-Play Quarterback at West Virginia. With all of This in Mind, Sills V Decided to Transfer to a Junior College.
In June 2016, after West Virginia Spring Training, Sills V Announced that he would be Transferring to El Camino Community College. In his Only Football Season, as a True Sophomore, at El Camino Community College, Sills V Played Quarterback, not Wide Receiver, and he Passed for 1,636-Yards and 15 Touchdowns.
Then, On December 15, 2016, The West Virginia Football Team Announced that Sills V would be Transferring-Back to The West Virginia Mountaineers and Soon-After in The 2017 West Virginia Spring Game, Sills V Played Wide Receiver and he Caught 6 Passes for 98-Yards from Quarterback Will Grier.
Wide Receiver David Sills V Took The Country By Storm in 2017 With 18 Touchdown Catches and Most of These Touchdown Catches were in The Incredible Class Mode. Sills V has also taken his Pass-Catching Game to a Complete Whole New Level. Or levels rarely seen in College Football.
