You may not know the name Chase Hildreth yet, but you will.

The Netflix show 'Last Chance U' launches its fourth season in mid-July and at the center of the controversial show is the former Clear Creek quarterback Hildreth.

Hildreth lit up scoreboards with his arm for the Wildcats throwing for over 5,800 yards and 75 touchdowns during his prep career.

The 6-foot-3 lefty has had a football journey. After high school, he played at Blinn CC then transferred to Scottsdale CC.

He got his shot this year to be the QB1 at Independence CC, the subject of 'Last Chance U' and the boisterous coach Jason Brown. The Patriots went 2-8 on the season and Hildreth played in six games, throwing for over 1,200 yards and seven touchdowns.

"My time at Indy had its ups and downs, but overall I felt like it was a great learning experience," he said. "The junior college life isn't for everybody. You have to really love the game in order to make it out."

He's now at Texas State, along with new coach Jake Spavital – considered an offensive genius.
