Four-star wide receiver Kenny Stills (6-2, 175, 4.4) from Carlsbad (Calif.) La Costa Canyon is living up to his reputation as one of the Golden State's most versatile and athletic players. He is playing wildcat quarterback for his high school and was very instrumental in his team's opening win, trouncing Salinas, Calif., 54-20.
In one half of play because La Costa Canyon didn't want to run up the score, Stills rushed for 80 yards and scored a rushing touchdown. He also had three completions for 30 yards. As a receiver, Stills only had two passes thrown to him in the game, both were into double coverage.
Stills was on hand for UCLA's game on Saturday and truly enjoyed him time at the Rose Bowl.
