Watch: Sam Darnold completes pass from boat to wake boarder


It will be roughly six weeks before the USC football program is back on the practice field, but star QB Sam Darnold is keeping his arm sharp on his own time.

And it looks like loads of fun.

Darnold, who will be a third-year sophomore this fall, posted a video on Sunday of his completed pass from a boat to a wake boarder, showing nice anticipation on the craziest of crossing routes:

After taking over as starting quarterback last year, Darnold led USC to nine consecutive wins, capped by a Rose Bowl victory over Penn State. Considered one of college football's top prospects, Darnold faces high expectations this fall. His skills feature some similarities to those of Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck when Luck was a prospect at Stanford, according to analyst Daniel Jeremiah.

Darnold's passing skills return to serious business beginning on Sept. 2, when the Trojans open the season at home against Western Michigan.
