Quarterbacks, wide receivers and offensive linemen hit the practice fields at Mercer University for the Bobby Lamb Quarterback-Receiver School. 240 athletes from across the Southeast suited up to get some lessons from the Bears coaching staff.
"This camp was built on the reputation of having maximum repetition along with individual instruction," said Mercer head coach Bobby Lamb.
The kids, ages 8th grade to 12th grade, divided up and rotated through stations with different Mercer coaches. The athletes went through drills to improve footwork, worked on running routs and broke down hand positions for catching a pass.
"As a quarterback, you're going to learn to play under center and do a three-step drop and a five-step drop," said Lamb. "You're going to learn how to throw sprint out passes as well and you're going to throw all kinds of routs."
Coach Lamb explained that the camp also gives future college athletes an opportunity to see the new facilities on campus.
"It brings student athletes on our campus at an early age. They can see what kind of facilities we have and what kind of coaching staff we have. Hopefully, they'll want to come back and be a Mercer Bear."
