---- — RCHS head football coach Scott McMurray and his coaching staff is hosting QB School for those interested in learning the fundamentals of playing the quarterback position.

The event is free and those interested can register at www.rushvillefootball.com.

The quarterback position is the “life blood” of a football team and the QB School will focus on the fundamentals of the position. The coaching staff encourages parents to attend so they may learn right along with their son. It doesn’t matter whether or not the athlete has played quarterback; a desire to learn basic QB fundamentals is what counts.

“The RCHS Father/Son QB School is going to cover the basics of playing the position…everything from how to grip the football, developing a daily QB routine, throwing on the run and leadership. I believe the QB is the “heart” of a football team. The QB must be the leader, the athlete, the hardest worker, etc...so the RCHS coaching staff would like to give young aspiring QB’s the necessary training to succeed,” Coach McMurray noted. “The camp is free and will run for three consecutive Sundays for one hour. The focus is on learning the fundamentals of the position. The 2014 motto is ‘ALL IN,’ so future RCHS Lions quarterbacks, join us, and be part of something that will lead to great things.”

Incoming 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are welcome to attend from 4 to 5 p.m. on April 27, May 4 and May 11 at RCHS. The only equipment needed is gym shoes, shorts and comfortable shirt.

Some of the drills will include warm-up routine for a QB, avoiding the rush, throwing on the run (roll out and boot passing), three step passing (fade, slant, hitch) and throwing bubble screens.
