Former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham's son, RC II, is making waves in high school football and track and field.

Former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham's son, Randall II or RC II, is slowly following in his father's footsteps. 

An August 26 article written by Jeff Fedotin of thepostgame.com chronicles the rise of Randall Cunningham II, whom KSHP-AM radio personality Harvey Hyde swears is the second coming of his father. 

Hyde let his feelings be known to Tony Sanchez, Cunningham's head coach at Bishop Gorman (Nevada) HS.

"Oh, my God, Coach. I'm seeing his dad all over again." 

The elder Cunningham couldn't help but gush about his son. 

"He looks so much like me that it's scary. If you took my picture from college and put it next to him, the only difference is he's a little lighter than I was.

"He's already better than I was. When I was in high school, I was definitely not as fast as him...My arm was about as strong as his arm, maybe a little bit stronger."  

Fedotin reveals the "RC II" monicker was given by Baylor coaches to the 17-year-old as a tribute to Washington Redskins superstar quarterback Robert Griffin III. 

ESPN also ran a feature about Randall II courtesy of Mitch Sherman in March which has the high school senior saying he knows he has to live up to his father's legacy. 

"I knew I had to live up to that. He's been there and done everything at the highest level. I decided I had to be better than that." 

RC II, who is set to start for Bishop Gorman HS in the fall to replace Anu Solomon, has already been receiving plenty of scholarship offers. Aside from Baylor, other schools in the mix include UNLV, Mississippi State and Syracuse. Others who have shown interest are UCLA, Oregon and LSU, per Sherman. 

According to Las Vegas Weekly's Ray Brewer, the 6'5", 185-pound high school senior went 21-of-32 passing for 298 yards and two touchdowns in a backup role last season. He also rushed 42 times for 483 yards and seven rushing touchdowns. 

He also established a new school record which stood for 30 years after recording seven feet in a high jump last spring, says Brewer. 

The good thing is that Randall Cunningham II doesn't put too much pressure on himself in spite of all of the expectations and what lies ahead. 

"I don't feel any pressure. I've learned to handle pressure from (living) up to the expectation created with my dad being in the NFL from a young age."
