I had the opportunity to attend the El Toro versus Yorba Linda high school play-off game this past Friday night up in Orange County, CA. Our quarterbacks coach with My Football Mentor, Bill Cunerty, invited the MFM crew up to see the game as it was the Cox Cable Game of the Week in Orange County. Bill happens to be the color commentator on the show but he also personally trains Connor Manning, the junior quarterback for El Toro high school.
Bill introduced me to Connor prior to the game and I knew immediately that this young man has the leadership qualities necessary to be a great quarterback just based on how he interacted with us. Connor has thrown for over 3,000 yards this season and he completed 28 of 36 passes for 278 yards and three touchdowns in a 59-20 victory!
Connor showed the poise and command in the pocket of a seasoned, well coached quarterback. It’s obvious he has benefited greatly from Bill’s tutoring as all of coach Cunerty’s players have. We are extremely blessed to have coach Cunerty on our team and I can’t wait to hear about future success stories of quarterbacks that coach Cunerty trains through My Football Mentor!
