What do coaches always say to quarterbacks? You better be able to make all the throws in your playbook blindfolded?
Johnny Manziel says “challenge accepted.”
Known more for his improv ability, the Heisman Trophy winner showed off his throwing accuracy as well during a “Zorro drill” while training with quarterback guru George Whitfield Jr. Blindfolded, Manziel tossed just two uncatchable balls out of 29 attempts. Not too shabby.
“I have always said he has the best antenna in football,” Whitfield said. “I think he just proved that.”
And if anyone needs anymore proof, here’s a video of one of the passes.
It might not be on the level of a trick shot video, but it’s impressive nevertheless.
