NFL Quarterbacks and Coaches to Lead Under Armour Elite Camp at Quarterback Ranch
A dozen NFL coaches and quarterbacks, former and current, will lead the staff at the first annual 2014 Under Armour Elite Passing Academy at The Quarterback Ranch.
The Quarterback Ranch is partnering with former NFL quarterback and current elite QB instructor Richard Bartel to bring in an all-star lineup of instructors, including veteran offensive guru Tom Rossley who will join NFL greats Jim Zorn and Brad Johnson and a host of other former and active players who will lead 100 elite level quarterbacks and 50 receivers through a two-day passing camp, July 7-8 at Dragon Stadium in Southlake, Texas.
“We have put together an incredible staff of instructors for this event,” said Bartel, Camp Director. “To have this much knowledge and experience on the field for two days presents an awesome opportunity for our quarterbacks and receivers to not only gain valuable instruction on the mechanics of the passing game, but also to really focus in on the finer points of the game from individuals who have coached and played at the highest level of professional football.”
Also expected to participate as QB instructors are Brady Quinn, Chris Miller, Luke McCown, Josh McCown, Jeff Blake, Brad McCoy, Chase Wasson, Clayton George, and Bartel along with Mark Clayton, Keith O’Quinn, Jerry Sullivan, Glenn Smith, Kirk Rogers as receiver instructors.
In addition, noted performance guru and author Brian Cain and Southlake Carroll head football coach Hal Wasson, one of the leading high school coaches in America, will provide sessions on the mental game.
The activities get underway Sunday evening, July 6, with the first Under Armour High School Coaches’ Clinic at the Southlake Hilton. The event is free for high school coaches and their assistants although pre-registration is required. There is a limit of three coaches per school. That event will feature a networking reception and offensive coaching clinic featuring several of the camp instructors, including Rossley, Zorn and Johnson.
The Monday and Tuesday Passing Academy will feature two age-specific sessions each day. Quarterbacks and receivers in 5th through 8th grade will work in the morning sessions from 8 to noon while the 9th through 12 graders will work from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. each day.
Space is limited with 50 QB slots and 25 receiver slots for each of the morning and evening sessions. Registration fee for 5th-8th grade QBs is $400 and $125 for receivers. Registration fee for 9th-12th grade QBs is $495 and $200 for receivers.
The Quarterback Ranch, based in the heart of Quarterback Country in Southlake Texas, was created in 2013 with a simple and clear mission: Bring together the best instructors, strategies, and methods in the country to provide the highest quality football skill position training, with a special focus on quarterbacks, for all ages and experience levels. And while our heart – and our headquarters – is in Texas, The Quarterback Ranch provides training and instruction throughout the country.
