Who out there can say they scored a touchdown on the first snap of their first College football game? I know we can’t. Although we do not have the stats to back this, we’re thinking that Brett Hundley is probably one member (if not the sole member) of a very exclusive club that can actually say that.
In 2011, Hundley graduated early form Chandler HS in AZ to enroll in the winter quarter at UCLA. He did not see much playing time last year, but multiple outstanding spring practices had coaches looking his way. His high school years were something to marvel at.
