The quarterback position is very tough to master, and few athletes can handle the pressure that comes with the job. Davis Mills (GAC Class of 2017) has been able to succeed as a quarterback from high school to the NFL. He was a five star quarterback in the class of 2017, and he helped lead GAC to two state championship appearances during his time as a starter with the Spartans. After his GAC career concluded, Mills then went on to play quarterback for Stanford University. The Houston Texans then drafted Mills in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft. The Houston Texans have thrown their support behind Mills, and he is expected to start for the Texans during the upcoming NFL season.
Before NFL training camp begins, Mills decided to share some of his knowledge and experiences with 24 quarterbacks from the Classes of 2027 and 2028. With the help of 7 on 7 coach, and private quarterback coach Tony Ballard, Mills brought young quarterbacks from across the country to participate in the first "Davis Mills Quarterback Camp." Each player submitted their own game film online, and coaches selected participants based on the player evaluations.
Throughout the camp players were challenged mentally in the film room, and physically with several drills that helped hone the craft of each quarterback. GAC opened up Spartan Stadium and the Hoover Field House to the Davis Mills Quarterback Camp.
The competition was fierce both on and off the field, with several young quarterbacks making great strides throughout the entire experience. Davis Mills returned to his alma mater and made an impact; just like he did during his days as a high school quarterback. Now however, he is using his talents to help pave the way for the next generation of quarterbacks.
