Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen is a wanted man as he heads into the 2017 season, and the latest group that wants his services is the Manning family and have him take part of the 2017 Manning Passing Academy.
“The trio of Archie, Peyton and Eli are three of the most experienced quarterback mentors in the country, and we are excited for Josh to attend the Academy,” said Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl. “I’m sure he will have the chance to meet a number of other college quarterbacks from around the country, which is going to broaden his experience.
“We’re also excited that not only will he have an opportunity to gain some additional information technically to make himself better, but he will have the chance to learn and observe other attributes of great quarterbacks. We’re looking forward to him making this trip and to hear about his experience once he gets back.”
Allen will join a group of other college quarterbacks who will help serve as camp counselors as well as earning coaching tips themselves from the Manning family.
“To be invited is a huge privilege and a huge honor,” said Allen. “I couldn’t be more thankful to Peyton, Eli, Cooper and Archie for putting this camp on and inviting some of the top quarterbacks in the country to participate. Growing up as a quarterback and seeing all these guys going to the Manning Passing Academy in the past, and now to be one of those invited is an extreme blessing.”
This is just another example of the Wyoming brand getting out to more people and Allen’s name himself as he heads into the season full of hype which follows the best season the Cowboys have had in a very long time.
Other camp counselors in the 2017 camp include Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson of Louisville, Southern California's Sam Darnold, Washington's Jake Browning, Alabama's Jalen Hurts, LSU's Danny Etling, Arkansas' Austin Allen, Ole Miss's Shea Patterson, Purdue's David Blough and Western Kentucky's Mike White.
The camp goes from June 22 - June 25 and will take place on the campus of Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana.
