    Kind of reminds me of our 1st round pick in 2015! :lol: The throwing motion is uncanny.

    The kid is good, 4 star prospect by Rivals.com as a Junior, considering UCLA right now.

    Very impressive, he doesn't remind me much of Rivers when he's scrambling however...(Sorry PR, you're still my boy)

    How old is he?

    16.

    He's already 6'6, 200lbs....as he gets older he'll add bulk and slow down.

    That's when the cement boots come into play. I don't think
    PR has scored yet on that two yard bootleg in powder blues.

    Just so we're clear, you know who the kid in the video is don't you?:icon_shrug::lol:

    Philip Rivers younger brother, Stephen Rivers.

    I knew it was a relative, didn't know it was his brother.

    That play at 3:03 reminds me of a PR dump off to Sproles.

    It really is a spitting image isn't it?:lol:

    The quick short throwing motion, the arc on the passes, the jittery footwork, the body type, even the number he's wearing....only difference is he's still mobile because he hasn't put on that extra 30lbs of bulk that comes with a college and NFL weight room. No wonder this kid is so heavily recruited as a Junior in Highschool.

    Dude **** college. I say way should convicne him to enter the draft asap. Then we could draft him as a backup, he could learn the system and then when rivers retires have rivers replace him.:yes:

    I had a feeling it was the little brother straight away. He is a carbon copy of the big bro, right down to the no. on his shirt. Amazing. Will be interesting to see where he ends up in college.

    I hope Rivers campaigns to draft him once he enters the draft! Imagine handing the starting QB job to your younger brother haha. And by the time Stephen Rivers is done as our QB, maybe Philip's son will take his spot! 3 decades of Rivers lol. Wonder how that'd turn out
