Rockford Quarterback Technique Clinic becoming destination spot

by RANDY GREGORY

Rockford football Coach Ralph Munger isn’t quite sure how many years it has been going on and isn’t quite sure about everyone who has participated as an instructor over the last several years in the annual Rockford Quarterback Technique Clinic. But the one thing he does know is that the event is drawing from a larger area every year. This year’s camp had no fewer than 29 participants ranging from seventh- to 12th-graders who attend schools as diverse as South Christian, Byron Center, Belding and Fremont (as well as Rockford).

“This camp was started by Matt McCarthy and it has grown annually,” said Munger. “Matt was the offensive coordinator at Ferris State [University] and has worked at several other schools. He brought a wealth of knowledge and we have just taken the ball and run with it. We stress technique and practice drill after drill as well as bringing in receivers over the course of the camp. This year went extremely well, and it was great to see a lot of former Rams coming back to help the younger kids who want to become better quarterbacks.”

Among the former Ram quarterbacks who were part of the staff this year were Joe Schwander, Steve Fusee, Robert Banaszak, Tim McGee and Mark LaPrairie. The event began on Monday, June 25 and concluded on Wednesday, June 27.

“When you are fortunate enough to experience the success we have over the last fifteen or twenty years, it is not uncommon for other teams to want to see what you are doing and see if it will benefit them in the long run,” said Munger. “It isn’t always that you are given the chance to impart the things that you have learned over the course of your career to so many eager young men. They were all a pleasure to work with and we look forward to doing it again next year.”
