After going through all seven rounds of the NFL Draft without hearing his name, David Sills has received an opportunity at an NFL career after signing with the Buffalo Bills.
Sills’s prolific career in Morgantown got its seeds before he was even in high school when he famously received a scholarship offer in seventh grade from Lane Kiffin to play quarterback at USC.
“The goal was to play on Sundays and figuring what’s going to be the best way and to have longest career. Obviously, quarterback is what I wanted to do, that was my dream,” Sills said at the 2019 NFL Combine.
After his high school career, a one-year stint at WVU, and a year at junior college, Sills burst onto the national scene as Will Grier’s favorite end zone target. His 35 touchdowns in three years sit at number two in school record books behind Stedman Bailey’s 41.
Sills’s unique past created something that can’t be quantified in a record book: the chip on his shoulder which created memorable moments in WVU football — from his “cold-blooded” touchdown celebration against Texas Tech to sparking the “Horns Down” fad among WVU fans.
He will be joining a receiver corps led by third-year wideout Zay Jones, and will be catching passes thrown by second-year quarterback Josh Allen.
