High school careerEdit
Silvers first started as quarterback his junior year. He threw for 2,468 yards and 26 touchdowns. Silvers had a 54% completion rating his senior year, with 201 attempts for 1,400 yards and 6 touchdowns. He also rushed for 410 yards on 116 carries and nine touchdowns. At the time, ESPN ranked him as the 27th best high school quarterback in the country.
He was drafted by the Memphis Express during the 2019 AAF QB Draft. He started the 2019 season as the third-string quarterback behind Christian Hackenberg and Zach Mettenberger. Hackenberg was demoted to third string after several weeks of poor play and an injury sidelined Mettenberger in week 6. Silvers then began splitting time with recently signed Johnny Manziel. Silvers and Manziel combined to lead the Express to just its second victory of the season in week 7. Silvers passed for the game-winning touchdown in overtime to beat the Birmingham Iron. With Manziel suffering an injury early in week 8, Silvers played the bulk of the game against the top-ranked Orlando Apollos. Silvers nearly pulled off an upset before losing 34–31, with a late interception by Silvers.
Silvers started two games for the Express, passing for 799 yards, 4 touchdowns, 2 interceptions, and had a 64% completion rating.
