Videos by OutKick

Trashaun Willis of Washington (IA) High School, who has played brilliantly as a one-armed quarterback, has officially received a scholarship offer to play at Lamar on the FCS level. Willis, a 6’5 senior who racked up 1,430 total yards and 25 touchdowns over nine games this fall, holds offers from a host of schools on the DIII and NAIA levels, now has a chance to play on a much different level.

Willis could be a fit for Lamar on the defensive side of the ball where he has 230 pounds on his 6’5 frame and was a first-team all-state linebacker. He had 37.5 tackles and an interception. On offense, he threw for 907 yards and 12 touchdowns while rushing for 523 yards and 13 touchdowns.

And it gets even better from Willis. He even had a touchdown catch back in October.

Trashaun and Georgia high school freshman Jamauri Williams, who was born without hands, are both notable football players who have overcome obstacles and found success on the field. This isn’t charity. This is the real deal.

Need a touchdown grab? Willis has you covered. Need a touchdown throw? Yep, Willis has you covered again. Need to get a yard and run over a defender? Willis again. And he could dunk a basketball in 8th grade.

“The ultimate goal is to make it to college and then hopefully the next level,” Willis told Bleacher Report in 2018. “Whether it’s football or basketball, it doesn’t matter to me as long as I’m playing. I feel like I can compete with anyone on the court or on the field as long as I continue to push myself hard enough.”
