“Nephew of Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly. As a junior, Kelly ran 86 times for 1,057 yards and 15 touchdowns. He completed 137-of-249 passes for 2,159 yards with 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions. No other New York player has rushed for more than 1,000 yards and passed for more 2,000 yards in the same season. Kelly was the first to win the NFL-sponsored “Punt, Pass and Kick” competition in four age groups. He quarterbacked his team to a Nike 7on7 passing league championship. He was named an Elite 11 QB after participating at the Elite 11 camp at Pepperdine University.”
I feel as though I have reached a point in my life where I am mature enough to admit that if I had achieved Chad Kelly-level success as a 17-year-old I would have been the world’s biggest, most obnoxious jackass who ever arrogantly strolled across Planet Earth. Luckily, the world did not have to deal with this situation, as house parties and general teenage apathy trumped any athletic skill I had by the age of 16. Good luck at Clemson, Chad! Tell Dabo that Buffalo.com said what’s up.
