Silver Pigskin Finalist: Terrell Burgess, San Marcos
San Marcos Senior Wide receiver/Defensive Back Terrell Burgess can do it all on a football field, and do it better than anyone else. That is why he plays 100-plus plays a game, and rarely leaves the field.
The 2015 Silver Pigskin Nominee burst onto the "Prep Pigskin Report" radar in 2013, during his sophomore season. In the Playoffs he intercepted a Granite Hills pass and took is back 100 yards for a score.
Ever Since then he has been producing amazing highlights in all three phases. That is why he is considered on of the top 100 college prospects in California according to Rivals.com. Burgess has nine offers, that include schools from the Pac-12, Mountain West and Big 10 Conferences.
His senior year his production in all three phases of the game has improved dramatically. On offense Burgess has 60 catches for more than 1,100 yards and 16 touchdowns, add in another 71 yards rushing touchdown, and 3 interceptions with 2 called back because of penalties, and you have the most complete football player in in San Diego County, and the senior is just 16 years old.
Mission Hills Head Coach Chris Hauser is a huge fan of this guy from his crosstown rival school, "He is probably the best player in the County!". While Rocky Long was overheard on the sidelines during "Discovery Bowl XII" gushing about how much he wanted Burgess to commit to San Diego State.
Burgess plays football with "Heart and Hustle". During the Discovery Bowl he stepped in at quarterback when Bryce Bolin went down, he also prevented a touchdown, when he tracked down Grizzlies Running Back Nehemiah McFarlin at the one yard line from all the way across the field.
Terrell is also no stranger to the Silver Pigskin Podium. His brother Isiah Hennie was second in the fan vote for the 6th and final spot back in 2013.
