The big NFL Combine news today, as reporters look for every possible angle, is that USC quarterback Sam Darnold will not be throwing at the combine. Instead, the former San Clemente High School (California) QB will focus on athletic testing and interviews at the combine. He’ll throw for teams at USC’s pro day on March 21.
This morning, I visited with Darnold’s high school head coach Jaime Ortiz to have him talk about the 20-year old who had deep roots planted in the Southern California beach town. Ortiz, who likes to use the hashtag #OneTownOneTeam when promoting his program on Twitter, says that Darnold is a one-of-a-kind athlete.
