Trashaun Willis has had people talking about him since a video of him dunking a basketball as an eighth-grader during a game nearly broke the internet.

As the starting quarterback this year for the Washington Demons after two years as an all-state linebacker, Willis is getting more attention.

USA Today and CBS Sports both made mention of his abilities and his disability (his left arm ends before his elbow) after Willis rang up six touchdowns (three passing scores of 28, 17, 3 and three runs of 4, 30, and 3 yards) against Mt. Pleasant Friday with 13-of-19 passing for 129 yards and 95 yards rushing on 14 carries.

Willis is used to the attention having played HORSE with Chris Paul at Willis’ house and having traveled to Los Angeles for the release of a Bleacher Report video on him.
