Russell Morrison, an incoming eighth grade student at Beck Junior High, was selected to compete with 28 other eighth graders from around the county in the National Football Academy’s Quarterback Competition at the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, OH.
After the morning session of throwing accuracy testing, footwork, speed and arm strength testing and coverage reads, the student athletes competed in the Gauntlet, a timed obstacle course testing throwing accuracy, footwork and speed. When the numbers were tallied Morrison was one of the five finalist competing for the eighth grade National Championship.
In the final competition Morrison was the third to run the Gauntlet, hitting four of five targets in 38 seconds and winning the national championship.
