Nation's Top HS Quarterbacks Compete in Elite 11 Camp

2012 Elite 11 Quarterback Camp

Since its inception in 1999, ESPN Rise’s Elite 11 quarterback competition has provided an invaluable service in the development of highly touted high school prep athletes preparing for the college level.

Previous participants include Tim Tebow, Matt Leinart, Vince Young and Matthew Stafford, all currently in the NFL.

The 2012 installment of the Elite 11 competition took place in Southern California and was led by former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst Trent Dilfer. The primary goal of the camp is to draw out the maximum potential in each of the 25 signal callers.

The rigorous competition measures the physical and mental abilities of the nation’s top quarterbacks as they get ready for the college game. Without question, the fierce contest will have a positive impact on each participant’s maturation as a quarterback.

To be an elite quarterback, you must be able to digest a complex playbook. The quarterback is expected to know the playbook inside and out.

7 on 7 drills provided the quarterbacks with an opportunity to showcase their skills and decision making. Trent Dilfer and the other coaches did a good job pushing the young signal callers to strive for greatness.

Nebraska commit and current Rancho Santa Margarita quarterback Johnny Stanton had a great performance and clearly impressed the coaches early in the competition.

The lone uncommitted quarterback is Lincoln (CA) QB Zach Greenlee. His only offer is from Fresno State. Despite that, Greenlee stood out and displayed a strong arm and pocket presence.

When it was all said and done, the MVP of the 2012 Elite 11 was Winter Park (FL) quarterback Asiantii Woulard who is committed to South Florida.

USC recruit Max Browne and Penn State recruit Christian Hackenberg were both considered for the top spot. After watching the first episode of the Elite 11 on ESPN, it is clear that all the quarterbacks that participated have the talent and desire to excel as college level athletes.

Check out the next episode of the Elite 11 QB Camp , which will be televised Tuesday August 14 on ESPN.
