Guyer quarterback Kevin Dillman, who came to Guyer in January from La Mirada, California, was denied a waiver request for UIL eligibility on Monday morning in Austin.
Dillman’s story is an interesting one, as the Sweden native came to the States as a freshman foreign exchange student, gained U.S. citizenship and has stayed throughout high school while his parents have remained in Sweden. He lives with a longtime family friend in Lantana, which is Guyer’s attendance zone.
He tore his Achilles tendon as a junior in California and wasn’t fully cleared to participate in spring drills at Guyer, limited to throwing. Sophomore Shawn Robinson moved in with his coaching parents after Dillman and won the starting job.
Dillman committed to Nebraska back in April, choosing the Huskers over 15 other Football Bowl Subdivision offers, at the time.
More to come on this later, but again, Dillman will not be able to play his senior season at Guyer.
