WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Quarterbacks attended the Texas QB Passing Camp at Wichita Christian School. The coach to player ratio is kept low and the reps were high.

The camp works to improve quarterback leadership and athletic skills with hopes of furthering their careers beyond high school.

All coaches played and excelled at higher levels. The head coach is Jason Lovvron. He is a former college quarterback for Baylor University and Howard Payne University.

Currently, he is the head coach at First Baptist Academy in Dallas. Lovvron said they focus on small group instruction and personal player growth.

They work closely on areas of weakness. Players will leave with a written evaluation and drills to continue to improve after the camp is over. 

The Texas QB Passing Camp is four hours long and costs $200. Lovvron said they plan on coming back next year.

Wichita Falls was the first stop on the Texas QB Tour of Texas. The other cities they plan to head to this year are listed below. 

Lubbock: Friday, July 14 from 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Austin: Saturday, July 15 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

San Antonio: Sunday, July 16 from 2 p.m. - 6 p.m.

Houston: Monday, July 17 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Tyler: Tuesday, July 18 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Dallas: Saturday, July 22 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Gary Diehm, Midwestern State University's head athletic trainer suggest that student athletes work during the summer heat to acclimate themselves to the summer heat before they head back to practice this fall.
