Carr flies south for QB camps

Posted: Tuesday, Jul 8th, 2014

Nicholas Mattson/Atascadero News Atascadero High School senior Tommy Carr passes during 7-0n-7 drills in June. Carr will be the starting quarterback for the defending PAC 7 champion Greyhounds, to lead the team in the 2014 season with receivers Cooper Kuhnle, right, and Tony Quintero, far right.

ATASCADERO — Atascadero High School senior Tommy Carr leaves today for a two-week trip to Thibodaux, La. and College Station, Texas, to train with some of the top football players in the country, before assuming the starting position at Atascadero High School in the fall.

Carr’s first destination is the Manning Passing Academy at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux. Joining him at the MPA will be AHS’ No. 1 receiver Cooper Kuhnle, and the two will jump feet first into the strict schedule of the MPA, which sent Johnny Manziel home in 2013 for not living up to the standard expected by the Mannings.

The MPA is a four-day camp that begins on Thursday, July 10 with an orientation. Then the fun begins on Friday, with a 6:30 a.m. wake up call, and ending with a 10:45 p.m. lights out order. Between lights on and lights off, there will be a morning and afternoon practice, then an evening passing league, an NCAA eligibility clinic, and a nutrition clinic.

Carr and Kuhnle may not get much one-on-one time during the camp, but each will be getting personal training from successful college and high school coaches across the nation, as well as outstanding college players from top programs, including Alabama, Auburn, Dartmouth, Florida, Georgia, Harvard, Kentucky, LSU, Oregon, Stanford, and more.

On Sunday, July 13, Carr and Kuhnle will finish up the MPA, and Carr will move on to fulfill an invitation to the USA Football National Development Games.
