Who’s Who of college QBs gearing up for Manning camp

Archie Manning

When it comes to the latest edition of the ever-growing Manning Passing Academy, there will certainly be no lack of star power converging on Thibodaux, La., next month.

The camp, put on by the quarterbacking Mannings — Archie, Peyton and Eli — will be entering its 19th year this July. ¬†According to CoachingSearch.com, among the current FBS quarterbacks expected to be in attendance include Florida State’s Jameis Winston, Oregon’s Marcus Mariota, Baylor’s Bryce Petty and UCLA’s Brett Hundley.

Winston, of course, won the Heisman Trophy in 2013. The names of the other three listed will likely litter every preseason Heisman favorites list.

Also among the 30 or so FBS signal-callers expected to attend include Stanford’s Kevin Hogan, USC’s Cody Kessler and what the website describes as “several SEC quarterbacks” who went unnamed.

The college quarterbacks will serve as camp counselors to the 1,000-plus counterparts from the high school ranks who will be in attendance.

Here’s the camp’s mission statement, from the academy’s official website:

TO CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT OF GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF, AND THE PROFICIENCY WITH, THE FUNDAMENTALS, TECHNIQUES, SKILLS, MOTIVATION AND SPORTSMANSHIP NECESSARY FOR SUCCESS AT THE INDIVIDUAL OFFENSIVE SKILL POSITIONS IN THE SPORT OF FOOTBALL, WHILE EXPANDING THE OVERALL KNOWLEDGE AND STRATEGY OF OFFENSIVE PLAY AND DEFENSIVE COVERAGE.

FOR ALMOST FOUR DECADES THE MANNING FAMILY AND THE QUARTERBACK POSITION HAVE BEEN PRACTICALLY SYNONYMOUS WITH ONE ANOTHER. AS SUCH, THEIR SUMMER VACATIONS ALWAYS REVOLVE THE ANNUAL MANNING PASSING ACADEMY…A FAMILY-OWNED AND MANAGED FOOTBALL CAMP THAT EMBRACES THE BASIC FUNDAMENTALS OF FOOTBALL WHILE CATERING TO THE OFFENSIVE SKILL POSITIONS OF RB, TE, WR…AND OF COURSE QB.

This year’s camp will take place July 10-14 on the campus of Nicholls State.

    Somebody better keep Jameis under 24 hour surveillance.

    That dude makes Johnny Manziel look like a Cub Scout.

    Hopefully they hand out good Ole alarm clocks and lock up the crab legs…of course the food is free so maybe JW will be okay…

    Will Eli be a camper or a counselor this year?

    Jameis in a town where the cops won’t be covering for his a$$. This should be good.

    The mission statement is really in caps-lock and italics?

  6. John Taylor says: Jun 27, 2014 9:29 AM

    It’s in all-caps, yes, if that’s what you meant.

  7. wadaea says: Jun 27, 2014 9:36 AM

    lock up the crab legs

    Forget Kessler……..is Cyler Miles there?

    $440.00 a day to learn how to say “Omaha”.

    I know this guy is considered a God in Oxford, but if you look at the numbers he treally was a bad QB:

    College stats: TD-INT is 31-40

    NFL stats: TD-INT is 125-173

    The only reason to go there is to get the following advice

    Peyton – I’ll show you how to set records during the regular season and come up short in the post season.

    Eli – I’ll show you how to scrape by in the regular season and turn on the juice in the post season, plus throwing INTs at just the wrong time.

    Those of us who saw Archie play in New Orleans recall that except for those seasons when he had Chuck Muncie and Galbreath behind him, he was the Saints only top caliber player. The guy was running for his life pretty much every down.

    It’s not a real QB camp if Christian Hackenburg isn’t attending. the Steelers are going to tank the 2015 season to take him in the 2016 draft to replace Big Ben.

    JT, did you copy-and-paste the all-caps mission statement from their website? If so they need a proofreader. Either that or I was just unaware that an academy could ‘revolve’.

    THEIR SUMMER VACATIONS ALWAYS REVOLVE THE ANNUAL MANNING PASSING ACADEMY

    I would have thought their summer vacations would revolve AROUND the annual academy.

    If Winston is there everybody’s going to need a padlock or two on his locker. Of course, Winston will be able to steal dinner for everyone, too.

    Regurgitated Jameis Winston is a criminal comment.

  16. florida727 says: Jun 28, 2014 10:51 AM

    Even as a Gator fan, I’m getting tired of the Jameis Winston stealing crab legs jokes. Get off this kid’s @$$ already. It’s old news. So he screwed up. Who hasn’t?

    Mariota is the * of this camp

    Besides his illegitimate relationships with underage girls, what else does he do? Oh yeah he plays football occasionally.

    Underage girls do not have the lawful authority to give consent. He committed a crime and someone in the DA’s office got paid off. I wonder what the words “underage” and “lawful consent” mean to court officials. They mean nothing if enough money is paid to look the other way, apparently. College football is becoming and is already a blight on our society, due to too much public media coverage.

    Jameis Winston should be in jail for many years.

    Ya, Cyler Miles was there, but he sucked so they sent him home !
