That goal was to play high school football and that kid is Kristofer Silbaugh. When he walked into Cambridge Springs football camp in August, Silbaugh told coaches he wanted to play wide receiver.
"You know just having one hand there's always those... Receivers need to have good hands to be able to catch the ball and you know," Silbaugh paused for a brief second and continued "I just thought people might not think that was me."
Cambridge Springs Head Football Coach Clint Rauscher says it was a surprise to hear he wanted to play wide receiver but that didn't deter him from giving Silbaugh a shot.
"That was the first thing he said, he wanted to play wide receiver," said Rauscher. "We actually had known, even for the first couple days (of camp), that he hadn't played football."
Sure there were doubts, but there is no need to feel bad for Silbaugh... because not even Silbaugh felt bad for Silbaugh, he went out and erased those doubts on the field.
"You just got to try your hardest and out beat everybody else," said Silbaugh.
"His focus is so great on just trying to use that one hand that it works for him," said Rauscher as a quick smile came across his face. "It works for him better than a lot of kids I have that have two hands."
Through seven weeks for the Blue Devils Silbaugh has emerged as Quarterback Devin Walkers go to target. Last week alone Silbaugh racked up 100 receiving yards and a touchdown.
"He is the one guy I know that will make the catch," said Walker. "He is really tall (and) without a doubt he is the fastest guy on our team."
"(Walker) trusts me to catch the ball and I trust him to make sure it's there so we can have a good play," said Silbaugh.
