The 19th Annual Manning Passing Academy will be July 10th- 13th at Nicholls State in Thibodaux, Louisiana. The passing academy is lead by Peyton, Eli, and Archie Manning. The academy will host roughly 1200 campers at Nicholls State.
Mission Statement: “TO CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT OF GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF, AND THE PROFICIENCY WITH, THE FUNDAMENTALS, TECHNIQUES, SKILLS, MOTIVATION AND SPORTSMANSHIP NECESSARY FOR SUCCESS AT THE INDIVIDUAL OFFENSIVE SKILL POSITIONS IN THE SPORT OF FOOTBALL, WHILE EXPANDING THE OVERALL KNOWLEDGE AND STRATEGY OF OFFENSIVE PLAY AND DEFENSIVE COVERAGE.
FOR ALMOST FOUR DECADES THE MANNING FAMILY AND THE QUARTERBACK POSITION HAVE BEEN PRACTICALLY SYNONYMOUS WITH ONE ANOTHER. AS SUCH, THEIR SUMMER VACATIONS ALWAYS REVOLVE THE ANNUAL MANNING PASSING ACADEMY…A FAMILY-OWNED AND MANAGED FOOTBALL CAMP THAT EMBRACES THE BASIC FUNDAMENTALS OF FOOTBALL WHILE CATERING TO THE OFFENSIVE SKILL POSITIONS OF RB, TE, WR…AND OF COURSE QB.”
The player coaches this year are not lacking any star power with the likes of the nation’s best college signal callers in Jameis Winston (FSU), Marcus Mariota (Oregon), Bryce Petty (Baylor), and Brett Hundley of UCLA to name a few. This year they hope to focus more on football and less on drama. As was the case with Johnny Manziel missed practices due to being “sick”, and was ultimately sent home early.
