Robinson discusses experience at Manning QB camp
By Scott Wright
Let me be completely open with you: I’m a big Indy Colts fan and candidate for president in the Peyton Manning Fan Club. In addition, a 15-minute interview with Archie Manning ranks as the No. 1 moment interviewing a famous person in my journalism career. So I’m hugely envious of Oklahoma State quarterback Zac Robinson.
For the second straight summer, he made a trip to the Manning Passing Academy in Thibodaux, La., this year serving as a camp coach along with Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning.
Here’s a Q&A from OKState.com on the experience at the camp.
Okstate.com: So what was a typical day like at the Manning Camp?
Zac Robinson: The first day, we got there in the morning and in the afternoon, the college guys threw with Peyton and Eli. The other days, we’d wake up at 7:30 and coach kids. My station was the deep ball. We would have lunch, then another afternoon session, then we’d have dinner and come back for a little seven-on-seven. My team was 4-0 and won. Manning Camp champs. Another night we did something called “Air it Out” where we’d throw to the receivers.
OSU: Who were some of the other quarterbacks there?
ZR: Sam Bradford, Colt McCoy, Jevan Snead from Ole Miss. He was my roommate. T.J. Yates from North Carolina and Jonathan Crompton from Tennessee. There were more, but those were some of the guys that immediately jump out.
OSU: Did you get any time to visit with any of the Mannings?
ZR: I did get to talk to Peyton and Eli. I spoke to Eli for about 45 minutes the first night. Those guys brought us in to answer any questions that we had. They talked about the NFL and what to expect when you get there. That whole session was a great part of the camp because they really want to help you as a college quarterback and teach you some things both on the field and off the field.
OSU: What did you take from those sessions and from the camp in general?
ZR: They said the biggest thing is to just enjoy your senior year because it’s the last time you are going to play college ball and have that camaraderie with your teammates. Don’t even think about the NFL at this point. Just enjoy what you have because it’s a great thing.
