Next level quarterbacks getting some East Texas training
(KETK) Bullard Tx — The soccer goals were set up beneath the goal posts, but here in Texas, football season never ends.
"Texas is football, it's not six months, seven months out of the year it's twelve months out of the years," said Brad Frazier with Old School Quarterbacks in Dallas.
Which is why Frazier, alongside Bobby Stroupe from APEC in Tyler, were helping these signal callers get ready for the next level at The Brook Hill School football stadium in Bullard Wednesday afternoon.
"Well these guys are going through a period right now where they've got a lot to fix in a very small amount of time," said Stroupe.
Alongside the young guns is former Texas Tech Red Raider Graham Harrell, who has played for the Green Bay Packers as well as the New York Jets, and is now working to land another job in the league.
"Once the season starts you're just trying to maintain in the offseason when you really put in the work you can really improve as a player and improve as an athlete," said Harrell.
Which is the same mindset as former Oklahoma state quarterback Clint Chelf, who showed off his wheels along with his arm in the 2013 season.
He's hoping to follow in the foot steps of other mobile QBs such as Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick.
"Trying to do the best that I can wherever I get the chance to run to make the most of it I think those guys are kind of front runners kind of paving the way for more athletic guys in the NFL."
But Mabank native and former ULM Warhawk Kolton Browning was glad to work on getting better, closer to home.
"It's good to come back down here and workout kind of get the home feeling again and be around the hometown," said Browning.
This is the time period where athletes, especially quarterbacks, have to focus on their weaknesses, and stand out to NFL scouts.
"This is what they dreamed of being in the position to be in a long time ago and they're here now, so it's important that we take everyday, every play, everyway and strive on perfection out here," said Frazier.
