Post Future Georgia QBs shine at Elite 11

Friday July 25, 2008

Both of Georgia’s 2009 quarterback commitments, Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger, got some big-time recognition at the end of the Elite 11 national quarterback camp.

Camp “counselors” that included Matthew Stafford, Chase Daniel, Mark Sanchez, and Colt McCoy named Murray the camp’s MVP. Leadership is a crucial trait for a successful quarterback, and Georgia fans have got to love that Murray also picked up the camp’s Best Leader award.

Mettenberger wasn’t left out of the awards. He took home the Strongest Arm honors, and Georgia coaches have to be excited about having yet another big thrower to work with.

But Murray stole the show, and for the second time in a week he has gone against the best quarterbacks in the nation and came out on top. The guy even plays video games better than anyone else. Here’s just a little of what people were saying:

He has it all,” Elite 11 QB coach Tee Martin, a former standout at Tennessee and quarterback with the Steelers, told ESPN.com. “He needs to continue to work on playing under center and taking his drops. We’ve been working with him on making faster decisions and he has improved a lot there. He’s just a very gifted player.”

“As soon as I saw him last week at the Nike thing I was like, man, this school from Florida is going to win it all because of the quarterback,” said (Bengals WR T.J.) Houshmandzadeh.
