Tommy Wilson, the son of the actor who played “Biff” in the “Back to the Future” movies, is emerging as a pitcher for a high school in Los Angeles. Wilson is a junior pitcher for Notre Dame (Sherman Oaks, Calif.) High School, and he threw five scoreless innings during a wild-card playoff game against Riverside North on Tuesday. The youngster struck out eight in the Knights’ 6-1 victory. According to Los Angeles Times high school sports reporter Eric Sondheimer, Wilson started off the season as a long reliever and has gone 3-1 since getting a chance to start a few weeks ago. “I just kept working as hard as I could in the bullpen,” Wilson told The Times. “After I got out of the first inning, I felt real good.” Wilson has been pretty dominant, too. According to his profile on Max Preps, Wilson entered Tuesday’s game with a 1.68 ERA in 33.1 innings pitched. He had allowed just 20 hits, eight runs and eight walks while striking out 44. Wilson’s father, Thomas F. Wilson, apparently kept a low profile at the game. “He must increase and I must decrease,” Thomas Wilson joked to Sondheimer. “Fortunately, he got his mother’s athletic prowess and his father’s good looks.” Hopefully he avoided all the manure trucks on the way home from the game. Wilson’s YouTube channel lists him at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds. His profile says his fastball is consistently in the mid-80s and that he also throws a cutter, change-up, and curveball. Wilson’s Notre Dame squad will face Agoura High School in the first round of the playoffs on Thursday. Notre Dame has also produced Major Leaguers Giancarlo Stanton, Brendan Ryan, Brett Hayes, Chris Dickerson, and former Cy Young winner Jack McDowell. Maybe one day Wilson will join the group.
