And here’s the kicker: He threw five touchdowns in the championship, and earned the game’s MVP award.

When Thompson High School starting quarterback Zach Sims — who has received scholarship offers from both Pittsburgh and Louisville — was sidelined with an injury late in the season, Warriors backup quarterback Trent Seaborn took over the starting role.

Seaborn ultimately took his team to the AHSAA Super 7 Class 7A Championship game against Auburn High School, getting a blowout 49-24 victory to hook his entire team up with championship rings. It’s also Thompson’s fourth straight state title. Stats wise, this kid was absolutely mesmerizing, throwing for 207 passing yards and five touchdowns to win the game’s Most Valuable Player award.

Only in eighth grade, Seaborn did all of this at just 14-years-old.

Man, I thought this stuff only happens when you played video games and acted like you had a career. Even then, this kid is better than my player when I do football careers. My character isn’t out here winning state championships in the eighth grade, holy hell. (RELATED: College Football Playoffs Will Expand To 12 Teams Sooner Than Expected)

Most 14-year-old boys are out here being degenerates or cussing out their mom over being banned from their PlayStation. This kid is out here winning football state championships, and I assume now already being looked at by universities. This is exactly how you’d want your son to be.

I look forward to seeing this kid when he gets to college.
