  The temperature was in the 80s at Pasadena Maranatha on Saturday, where Steve Clarkson and his counselors were training quarterbacks ages 8 to 17. The participants came from 20 states on a tour that will include stops in Philadelphia, Atlanta and San Francisco. The Southern California stop featured such high school standouts as Travis Waller from Anaheim Servite and Brady White from Newhall Hart. Mater Dei's next quarterback, Jack Lowary, was there showing off a strong arm. The most interesting moment was Clarkson working with the youngest aspiring quarterbacks.

Pete Carroll created a stir last season when he tabbed a true freshman to start at quarterback for USC. New Coach Lane Kiffin might have topped his mentor Thursday, offering a scholarship to a 13-year-old quarterback -- and receiving a commitment in return. David Sills is only a seventh-grader, but he said in a phone interview from Delaware, "It's always been my dream to go to USC." Kiffin could not be reached for comment. College coaches are targeting athletes at younger ages, but Sills is believed to be among the youngest to receive a scholarship offer from a major-college football program.

Private quarterbacks coach Steve Clarkson has been making headlines this week by building up Tim Tebow, trashing Mark Sanchez, the New York Jets and the Denver Broncos, and making a case that Tebow could be the savior of the Jacksonville Jaguars franchise. All this from a guy who worked with Tebow for just three sessions. Earlier this week, Clarkson -- a Wilson High School graduate who has worked with numerous quarterbacks, including former USC Trojans Matt Leinart and Matt Barkley -- had plenty to say during a conference call with reporters.

Has Tim Tebow come to the conclusion that his NFL days are over? There were conflicting reports Friday about the feelings of the quarterback's inner circle, with ESPN  magazine's David Fleming reporting that members of Tebow's camp are “privately admitting that the NFL run is probably over,” and a source close to Tebow telling NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, “It's not true.” Regardless, the New York Jets parted ways with Tebow last month, and...

Under normal circumstances, Steve Clarkson would have been able to coach football at Carson High this season. But these are not normal times for Coach Gene Vollnogle and his powerful program. That became evident Tuesday when Vollnogle, at the request of Dick Mattingly, the school's assistant principal in charge of athletics, asked Clarkson to leave the Carson campus. The reason?

With the start of a new NFL season fast approaching, Matt Leinart headed back home to Southern California this weekend, a quarterback without a team. The former USC star and Heisman Trophy winner was released by the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday, the latest twist in a roller-coaster career marked by reports of Hollywood parties and unmet expectations. "I think that in the end we both agreed this was probably the best thing for him, to have a fresh start," Arizona Coach Ken Whisenhunt said.

Max Wittek is ready for the moment. That's what those closest to USC's backup quarterback say as Wittek prepares for the biggest game of his life. Wittek, a redshirt freshman, will start in place of injured Matt Barkley against top-ranked Notre Dame on Saturday at the Coliseum. It's an opportunity Wittek has prepared for since he moved from Connecticut to Orange County to play at Santa Ana Mater Dei High, the same school that sent Barkley and Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart to USC. "He's so competitive and also very quietly confident," Mater Dei Coach Bruce Rollinson said Monday.

For the last eight years, Matt Cassel has been a quarterback for some of football's most successful college and professional teams, at USC and for the New England Patriots. He knows what it is to win a college national championship, knows the feeling of making it to the Super Bowl. Yet, because he hasn't started a game since his senior season at Chatsworth High in 1999, many football fans might not even be sure how to pronounce the 26-year-old's last name. For the record, Cassel is pronounced like "castle," and at the moment he's the accidental prince of the Patriots, thrust into the starting lineup after two-time Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady suffered a season-ending knee injury in the opener.

The vanity license plate is hard to miss as the black BMW sport-utility vehicle pulls into a parking spot outside a middle school in San Marino. QB CLUB. From behind the wheel steps a man dressed in shorts, a T-shirt and ball cap, all black. From the passenger side emerges a teenage boy, tall and slender, wearing a white T-shirt, black shorts, cleats — and clutching a football. The two walk determinedly past an expansive grass field and head toward the playground. The young quarterback drops the ball, and then grips the post of a chin-up bar and stretches his right arm. As the man barks instruction about the fundamentals of throwing a pass, it is clear they are there for more than a simple game of catch.
