NEW ORLEANS, La. (PRWEB) April 05, 2016
The South's premier quarterback training and development company, QB Country recently expanded its year-round program for quarterbacks to New Orleans. QB Country continues to train numerous recognizable names in college and professional football and is currently preparing 2016 College Football National Champion QB, Jacob Coker, and projected first-round draft pick, Paxton Lynch, for the NFL Draft.
Training will take place at the D1 Northshore Sports Training & Therapy center. Former Belhaven University quarterback Alex Williams will lead QB Country’s New Orleans training and operations. Locations in Atlanta and Charlotte opened earlier this year.
“Having worked with quarterbacks along the Mississippi Gulf Coast for quite some time, it is exciting to finally expand westward to New Orleans and the North Shore,” said QB Country Founder David Morris. Morris is a former quarterback at Ole Miss and started the company in 2010 in Mobile, Alabama. "Alex has New Orleans in his roots and is one of the best QB Coaches in the southeast. We want coaches to be in communities they love and are a part of. This is a perfect fit for an area brewing with talent.” Coach Alex Williams was born and raised in Covington, Louisiana and was QB Country’s first hire in 2013.
QB Country provides year-round specialized training for quarterbacks from middle school through the NFL, focusing on the physical and mental aspects required to play the quarterback position. QB Country trainees have gone on to become recognized college and NFL quarterbacks. Thirty-nine QB Country trainees signed college scholarships in the last two signing classes alone.
"I joined the QB Country family in 2013 and am extremely excited to help bring our program to New Orleans. Being a Louisiana native, I take pride in the football tradition here, and look forward to servicing young aspiring quarterbacks in the area," said Coach Alex Williams.
QB Country New Orleans training will take place at D1 Northshore Sports Training & Therapy center located at 1200 Pinnacle Pkwy, Covington, Louisiana 70433. QB Country partnered with D1 Sports Training in 2013 as their exclusive quarterback training company. New Orleans marks QB Country’s 9th location and the third expansion this year.
“D1’s relationship with QB Country is complementary as our organizations help impact and grow athletes on and off the field,” said D1 Sports CEO Dan Murphy. “QB Country’s attention to detail and holistic approach is what makes them the premier quarterback training program in the country.”
