Penn State Football: Busy Month For Hackenberg Sends Him To Manning Camp

by on July 11, 2015 12:00 PM

It has been a busy summer for Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg. From working out with his teammates on campus to helping high school prospects at the Nike camp "The Opening" in Oregon, he has been all over the country.

Hackenberg added another stop on his travels  this week as when he was tabbed to help out at The Manning Passing Academy. Campers come from all over to Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana, to learn from Archie Manning, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Cooper Manning as well as some of the best college quarterbacks in the nation.

The camp focuses on fundamentals and skills at the position with high school prospects of all ages. The college quarterbacks do much of the teaching and in many cases can become a news item of their own. Then Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel raised eyebrows with his work ethic -- or lack of -- a few years ago at the camp.

While the Mannings are not the final say in professional football, their opinions are certainly valued in NFL circles. A good impression by Hackenberg this weekend might just pay dividends whenever he looks to start his professional career.

The camp will feature many college quarterbacks, but a few of note beyond Hackenberg include Trevone Boykin of TCU, Josh Dobbs of Tennessee, Jared Goff of Cal, Cody Kessler of USC, and Dak Prescott of Mississippi State and more.

The Manning camp will wrap up on Sunday, which means as many have deduced, Hackenberg will not be in attendance for Penn State's charity Lift For Life event on Saturday.
