It’s hard to believe that college football has already reached the halfway point of the season. It wasn’t long ago we were all clamoring for the start of the greatest season on Earth and now we are halfway through it. ESPN has released their mid-season All American list and David Sills made the cut. Here is what they had to say.

WR: David Sills V, West Virginia

The one-time 13-year-old Lane Kiffin quarterback recruit has blossomed into a productive receiver at the end of his wild career. Sills has multiple touchdown catches in four of five games (nine total touchdowns) and has eclipsed 100 receiving yards in three of them. He made life difficult for TCU's defense on Saturday and has established a great connection with quarterback Will Grier. Sills is averaging 15.5 yards per catch.

College football always creates great story lines and this year has been no different. One of the best stories in college football comes from the West Virginia Mountaineers and quarterback prodigy-turned-wide receiver David Sills.

Mountaineer fans came into the season questioning the wide receivers after the top two receivers, Shelton Gibson and Daikiel Shorts left for the NFL. David Sills was unremarkable as a freshman before trying his hand at quarterback again in junior college. All he has done is catch the damn ball in the end zone. Sills’ presence has allowed quarterback Will Grier to thrive in Jake Spavital’s Air Raid scheme.
