Sam Darnold is using water sports to refine his game during the offseason.

Or something like that.

Over the weekend, the star USC quarterback posted a video of himself throwing a pass to a friend while on a moving boat. He delivered a great ball, too. But here’s the kicker: his friend was wakeboarding.

That’s pretty impressive, but let’s be honest. Darnold may be a Heisman candidate, but his buddy’s catch was definitely the highlight of the video. Sure, the pass is good, but to successfully maintain your balance at that speed and then extend for the ball takes a ton of hand-eye coordination.

Somebody get that kid a scholarship!
