(Philadelphia, Pa) --- Who is Steve Clarkson?? Well he just happens to be the guy that celebrities Joe Montana, Wayne Gretzky and Snoop Dogg are entrusting to teach their sons the quarterback position.
Clarkson began training quarterbacks at his Elite Passing School in 1988
that later evolved into the company known as Air-7. In 2007. Air 7
Quarterback University in 2007 backed by former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie
DeBartolo became the famed Steve Clarkson Quarterback Academy.
Clarkson first was recognized as a quarterback at LA Wilson High School, where he led his team to three Los Angeles City Championships with an amazing record of 39-1. He was the All-City Player of the Year in 1978 then moved onto San Jose State (three year starter name to the Academic All-American teams in 1981 and 1982) where he was a record setting passer playing for legendary quarterback John Elway's father Jack. After having a brief cup of coffee with the Denver Broncos (NFL) and Saskatchewan (CFL), Clarkson turned to his passion of coaching.
Some of Clarkson's prize pupils include Kansas State passer Josh Freeman, Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen, his son Anton (3-year starter at Hofstra), Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and many others. You can learn more about Clarkson's camp at steveclarksonqbacademy.com.
