Person to Watch: Eight-year old Quarterback Sensation Daron Bryden and his Trick-shot Video

An eight-year old quarterback by the name of Daron Bryden, current starting QB for the Manchester Sentinels youth football team in Connecticut, has made recent news with his 30-second "trick-shot" video uploaded by his father, Craig.

Since it was uploaded in mid-February, the video has received over 36,000 views and he has made numerous appearances on ESPN and local news stations in his area.

In a sense, the eight-year old has already made a name for himself as a top quarterback in his pee wee league, and thanks to his personal quarterback coach Travis Meyer, who is a coach at Five Star Quarterback (camp used to train and coach young quarterbacks), Bryden has developed the needed footwork to be a successful.
Bryden started playing the game of football two years ago, according to his father, when he was looking for a sport for him to participate in. He quickly fell in love with the game, and Craig says (according to quotes I found online) he asked to practice more and more each day. Some days, playing football is all he wants to do.

Bryden's Sentinel teammate, 10-year old receiver Joseph Colon says he is one of the most accurate quarterbacks at that age, and that is clearly demonstrated in a couple of the videos uploaded to youtube.

Before too long, Bryden will be sought out by middle school teams, high school teams and, eventually Colleges and Universities. The recruiting may even start before he hits high school if he continues to improve his game over the next several years.

To follow Bryden and his training, you can check out his blog here on blogspot (, follow him on Twitter (@DaronQB), or check out the youtube channel that his parents set up to upload videos of his training and game action.

Keep up the good work, Daron!
