Video: Young Patty Mills was quite the rising football player

San Antonio Spurs’ Patty Mills showed what he can do on the court during the Spurs’ title run this season but did you know he was quite the up-and-coming football player?

Before Mills stepped onto the court, he was on the radar of many teams in the AFL (Australian Football League) as a 15-year old after winning the Best and Fairest award at the National Under 15 Championships.

Noted for his quickness and agility on the football field, Mills eventually saw his talents were best suited for the basketball court.

Check out a young Mills on the field.
