Now that the high school football season is in the books, aspiring college level athletes have the opportunity to hone their skills outside the school setting. No position requires more dedication, training and development than quarterback.
Many of the top local quarterbacks and gun-slingers representing 20 states will receive expert tutelage at quarterback guru Steve Clarkson's 2014 Field General Quarterback Camp this weekend. 90 of the most talented young arms in the nation will get to measure their skills against premier competition at this sold-out event.
Most recently featured on 60 Minutes, Steve Clarkson is the authority on developing quality quarterbacks with lofty expectations. Last year's event featured D1Bound quarterbacks like Arizona commit Brandon Dawkins and Michigan commit Wilton Speight.
This year's crop is loaded with premium local talent including Hart's Brady White, Servite's Travis Waller, Damon Wright from Jurupa Hills, Mater Dei's Jack Lowary, KJ Costello from Santa Margarita, MC Poe from Cathedral, Poway's Tate Martell and Max Gilliam from Thousand Oaks. Foothill's Kyle Kearns from Pleasonton in NorCal will be in attendance too.
Making the journey all the way from Calvary Baptist in Louisiana is Shea Patterson. The 2016 QB is currently committed to Arizona but boasts offers from programs like Clemson and TCU.
The two-day camp will be invaluable to the growth and development of each quarterback. The knowledge and wisdom imparted by Clarkson and his top notch staff is immeasurable. For those interested, there is a San Francisco camp July 12 and 13. Future events in Philadelphia and Atlanta are in the works as well.
CLA looks forward to a great camp and will be providing coverage throughout the weekend.
