With JT Daniels dominating the news, it’s interesting to see his father has decided to move from Irvine to Long Beach because he read college quarterbacks do better when their parents live closer.
Let’s remember Sam Darnold’s parents: They lived in San Clemente. They stayed in San Clemente when Darnold went to USC. They resisted sending him to Mater Dei, Santa Margarita or JSerra and sent him to the neighborhood school with his childhood friends.
Amazingly, it all worked out. They didn’t need to feed him sugarless cakes like Marv Marinovich or move to Long Beach, where Darnold’s grandmother happens to live. And he was still drafted No. 3 by the New York Jets.
