Prescott teaching and learning at Manning Passing Academy

Posted: Updated:
THIBODAUX, La. - This is the 19th year Peyton, Eli and Archie Manning have held the Manning Passing Academy, where learning what it takes to play quarterback is the one order of business.  Nearly 12-hundred high school players have made their way to Nicholls State to learn from Louisiana’s first family of football and America’s first family of quarterbacking. 

Also on hand are literally dozens of top college and NFL players to help out, including Mississippi State's Dak Prescott of Haughton, who is finding out he too is learning about his position.  "It's the little things, just getting that routine Peyton was talking about and just having a routine.  I'm a little bit of a perfectionist, but to come in and see Peyton, he's unbelievable. In his demeanor and everything, just the way he approaches his day, all the meetings and practices, he just seems very much a perfectionist.  It's good to be around these type of guys.  They just raise your level of play and level of personal being."

The Manning Passing Academy runs through the weekend.
