Manning Passing Academy returns with new faces but no LSU quarterbacks

Local Sports

THIBODAUX, La. – Myles Brennan and Max Johnson were not present during the Manning Passing Academy’s media availability. Neither of the two Tigers signal callers will represent LSU at SEC Media Days. Fall camp will likely become the first time either speaks since spring ball closed.

However, two significant quarterbacks, both locally and nationally, made their MPA debuts, and one came from Zachary High School.

“When Mr. Archie called me, told me he wanted me to come out to the camp, I was very excited, very excited to be here, in elite company with great quarterbacks across the nation and learn a lot rom guys who have NFL, Hall of Fame careers,” Nicholls State quarterback Lindsey Scott said.

“It’s been great learning from some of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. Archie Manning’s a really good guy. Everybody here’s a really good guy. Just, coming out here and competing with some of the best in the country. It’s been pretty good,” Miami signal caller D’Eriq King added.

Scott would’ve made his debut in the MPA in 2020, but the pandemic shut down the annual event. This year’s camp is the 25th edition, and the Mannings were happy to pack Guidry Stadium.

“Just,. everybody here loves football. We’ve kind of kept to the core roots of the camp. It’s a football camp. It’s a teaching camp. It’s not a recruiting camp. We pretty much do all football, and I think that’s why it’s worked,” Peyton Manning stated.

The Manning Passing Academy will finish Sunday, June 18th.
