Hawaii Offers Scholarship to Fifth-Grade QB

ESPN - An 11-year-old quarterback was offered a scholarship by the University of Hawaii on Saturday. Titan Lacaden, a fifth grader from Kapolei, Hawaii, took to Twitter to share the news that he had received a verbal offer from Hawaii head coach Nick Rolovich.

Lacaden is a native of Hawaii and the younger brother of former Nevada linebacker Jake Lacaden. Rolovich was the offensive coordinator for part of Jake's time at Nevada, so there is familiarity with the family.

Okay, there is a lot to digest here. I guess my first question is about Hawaii's scouting network and how extensive it is. How could the head coach at Hawaii find himself face-to-face with an 11-year-old, and then proceed to offer him a scholarship!? Was his scout like, "Hey coach, you have to head down to this local elementary school. Kid has a spiral!" or something?

Next, take a look at this kid's arm. He can really chuck.

And he plays defensive as well. Look at this interception on his own goal line which he proceeded to take home like Ed Reed... if Ed Reed was an 11-year-old in Hawaii.

What a world we live in. Make sure to remember the name Titan Lacaden, in roughly a decade you'll see him under center in Hawaii.
