Manziel Comes Full-Circle at Manning Academy

Updated: Saturday, July 13 2013, 08:10 PM CDT

Earlier this week, some of the best quarterbacks on the planet flew into New Orleans' Armstrong International Airport to spend a weekend in south Louisiana. But they aren't using their arms to lift beignets and beverages in the French Quarter. They're not even in the Big Easy. They're 46 miles west in the tiny town of Thibodaux.

At the academy, some 40 college QBs serve as counselors to the high school campers. Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, joins David Ash (Texas) and A.J. McCarron (Alabama) as a counselor this year.

Manziel's experience at the Manning Passing Academy has come full circle. As a high school QB in Kerrville, he attended the Academy as a camper.

"Looking up to the Mannings like I did, and still do to this day, it was a little bit different being in a high school setting," Manziel recalled. "Being a 15 year old kid and coming here, I always wanted to come back as a counselor. I'm just really honored to be back."

"Certainly Johnny is a pretty unique story," admitted Peyton Manning. "I don't recall him standing out here as a high school player, but certainly he turned it on this year. "He was really fun to watch and we are real happy to have him this year as a counselor."

Colts QB Andrew Luck and Peyton's brother Eli are two other former Manning Academy campers to find high-profile success after serving as a pupil at the MPA.
