LSU’s Joe Burrow Counselor At Manning Passing Academy
Joe Burrow has worked hard to win the starting QB job at LSU after transferring from Ohio State last year. This summer he'll be taking a break from his normal workout program to attending one of the most prestigious QB passing camps in the nation in the Manning Passing Academy.
Burrow won't be just attending the passing academy he'll actually be working as a counselor come June 27-30 on the Nicholls State campus in Thibodaux, La.
The Manning Passing Academy is owned and operated by Archie Manning and sons Peyton, Cooper, and Eli. This is certainly a popular academy and of course for good reason as there's estimated to be 1,000-plus middle school to high school aged quarterbacks in attendance this summer.
Now, don't think all Burrow will be doing in counseling the youngin's, oh no, he'll be getting plenty of work in himself as, during the day, the counselors will work with the young quarterbacks. After those afternoon sessions, the college guys will put in their work with the Manning’s and several other coaches/players in attendance on film study as well their overall passing mechanics.
As mentioned, Burrow won the starting job last year at LSU and did not disappoint in year one as he started all 13 games and led the Tigers to a 10-3 record and a No. 6 ranking for the final AP Top 25 Poll. He also became the first player in LSU Tiger Football history to throw for 2,500 yards while rushing for at least 350 yards in a season, pretty impressive stuff.
