Dillman impressive in opener

Kevin Dillman played receiver and safety last weekend and he returned the opening kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown but the 2015 star from La Mirada, Calif., didn't play much quarterback, maybe his best position.
That was fine though because Dillman shined in La Mirada's big victory against Santa Fe Springs (Calif.) St. Paul in other areas.
What's most impressive about Dillman is that he's still so young but has such a dominant influence on the field whether it's on offense, defense or special teams.

That is one reason why Arkansas, Cal, Colorado, Florida State, Louisville, Ole Miss, UCLA and Utah have already offered.
"Our whole game plan went out the window," La Mirada coach Mike Moschetti said. "We didn't know what to expect defensively. They had a new coaching staff and they put nine guys in the box and played cover zero and dared us to throw the ball.
"Dillman is a big-time athlete playing safety and receiver. He set the tone of the game. The kid is 15 years old and returns the opening kickoff for a touchdown."
Another impressive aspect of Dillman's game is that he hardly played quarterback, had dominant moments in the game, and Moschetti swears his best position is under center.
That he hardly played there is a testament that the 6-foot-4, 205-pound prospect can take over in different ways and that's a credit to his talents on the field.
Over his sophomore season, Dillman should see more time playing quarterback.
"He's definitely a quarterback," Moschetti said. "He's a pro-style quarterback. It's a situation where we have another quarterback. The plan was Kevin was going to play a bunch of quarterback, we were going to rotate and do things with him. Our game plan was for him to play safety and some different positions.
"We wanted him to have about 10 carries and throw six or seven passes. It didn't work out that way. The tempo of the game dictated us to run the ball and that's what happened."
