These quarterbacks are worthy of imitation. They set the bar high and will dominate the football landscape for decades to come. I invite you to follow their journeys as they demonstrate the skills that set them apart from all others.

Thousand Oaks gun-slinger Max Gilliam is one of the top class of 2016 quarterbacks in the West Coast. As a junior, Gilliam led the Lancers to a 7-4 mark and accounted for over 40 total touchdowns. Thousand Oaks season concluded in a high scoring 48-41 loss to Atascadero in the CIFSS Northern Division Playoffs.

With several key players returning, Gilliam has high expectations for the 2015 high school football season. The opposition in the Camino League is stiff with defending champ Newbury Park, Camarillo and Royal to compete with. Despite the difficult road, Gilliam is confident his team will take home the league crown.

"We got a lot of returning seniors. We got a lot guys coming back on offense and defense," said Gilliam.

In the meantime, Gilliam is preparing to lead Elite Athletes for the 7v7 season. The talented squad features an arsenal of playmakers including Gardena Serra standout Brandon Burton. Gilliam and his receivers put in work on Sunday morning at Cathedral High. In that session, Gilliam’s dynamic skill set was on display, carving up the defense with relative ease. Expect Gilliam to find similar success on the 7v7 circuit in the coming months.

Also a baseball player, Gilliam has put down his glove to focus solely on football. 

Max Gilliam is destined to play quarterback at the next level. According to quarterback guru Steve Clarkson, it’s simply a matter a time before the offers start rolling in.

"He’s got a great feel. He’s really a can’t miss prospect," Clarkson said of Gilliam.

To date, Gilliam has yet to receive a scholarship offer.

"I’d like to play in the Pac-12 if I could. I’m a hard worker. I’ll stay and do whatever you need me to do," said Gilliam.

Gilliam has eyes on the Pac-12 and there is little doubt he’s on the right track.

Under the tutelage of Clarkson, Gilliam has developed into a quality quarterback prospect with considerable upside. Clarkson likens Gilliam to 5-star 2016 QB prospect Shea Patterson and Arizona State freshman Brady White.

On the academic side, Gilliam recently took his ACT and is poised to graduate in good standing. The constant grind to become a college level athlete requires the ability to balance success on the field with success in the classroom. Gilliam clearly has a firm understanding of this fact.

"It’s a lot easier during the off-season because I have more time to study. During the season it’s a little rough. Some late nights," said Gilliam.  

Gilliam enjoys kicking back playing video games with his friends in his down time. This year promises to be a life changing one for Max. 

Heading into his senior year at Thousand Oaks, Gilliam is poised for a standout season that should lead to a bevy of scholarship offers from big time programs.
