Flourishing As A Field General – KLAA QB Beginning To Get Big Time Looks

By: Scott Burnstein, October 20, 2016, 8:00 pm
Boom. Smack. All of a sudden, DMAC can be called one of the best in the Class of 2018 when it comes to chucking the pigskin. 
Waterford Mott’s David McCullum is quietly making a name for himself on the football field this fall. And when I say quiet, I mean like a silent assassin. The bazooka-armed, athletically-gifted 6-foot-2, 185-pound junior quarterback is terrorizing opposing defensive backfields with his touch, intelligence and pinpoint accuracy in the pocket and rapidly rising in college recruiting circles in the process.
Earlier this week, McCullum picked up his first offer…..from No. 7 in the land Louisville. Burney is pretty sure this is the first of many major-college bids the doozy of a dual threat signal caller sees come his way. McCullum has thrown for 1,800 yards and 18 touchdowns so far this season, his first as a starter at the varsity level on the gridiron.
Mott is 4-4 entering Week 9 and its’ KLAA crossover affair against Howell. Louisville snatched 2016 Mott grad Dez Fitzpatrick (WR) for its’ most recent recruiting class. Fitzpatrick is redshirting this year.
