WVU QB Garrett Greene Looks to Sharpen Skills at Manning Passing Academy



WVU Football QB Garrett Greene

WVU quarterback Garrett Greene is looking to sharpen his passing even more, and there’s no better place to do that than the Manning Passing Academy.

Greene will take part in the prestigious event run by executive director Archie Manning and senior associate directors Cooper, and former NFL quarterbacks Eli and Peyton Manning. The West Virginia quarterback in the midst of a competition for the starting role with the Mountaineers will be joining 40 other quarterbacks at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana this coming weekend.

It’s widely believed, and was even hinted by WVU head coach Neal Brown during an appearance on a WVSN show, that Greene could now be ready to be a full-time starting quarterback for a major college program. Already an excellent runner, continuing to perfect his passing could help get his game to the next level.

The Academy’s website includes a paragraph about what the event has been offering players in terms of development over the last 25 years.

“For over 25 years, the Manning Passing Academy has been heling players fully realize their potential on and off the football field. Whether you’re a quarterback, running back, wide receiver or tight end, the Manning Passing Academy will help you grasp the fundamentals of your position, and basic offensive and defensive strategies.

“We’ve gathered some of the most successful and brightest coaches and players from the professional, college and high school ranks to help all campers learn from the best.”

There is no word on if Nicco Marchiol, who Greene is competing with at WVU, will also be there. This opportunity for Greene could provide him a chance to distance himself and eventually claim the job by the end of fall camp.
