The decision has been made. Kelly Hilinski, a 6-foot-5 eighth-grade quarterback, has decided to enroll this fall at Sherman Oaks Notre Dame.

He has received impressive reviews from Steve Clarkson, the private quarterback guru. Hilinski is also a promising baseball player.


He considered Mater Dei, Bishop Amat and Oaks Christian. He’s not expected to be a varsity player as a freshman, but his potential gives Notre Dame another capable player at the quarterback position. The Knights have produced Garrett Green (USC) and Dayne Crist (Notre Dame) in recent years, and the reigning Gatorade state player of the year, Ryan Kasdorf, returns for his senior year.
