Most guys think they know how to throw a football. They don’t. That’s according to a local quarterback coach, who’s trained UConn’s Casey Cochran and others at the pro, college and high school level.
Travis Meyer runs Five-Star Quarterbacks, and on Channel 3 Eyewitness News he taught us the proper way to toss the pigskin so you’ll look like Manning or Brady at the next tailgate party or touch football game.
This is part of a new segment on Eyewitness News called “The Man Cave,” that will air Thursdays after the NFL game. We’ll talk about sports, men’s health, sex, cars, and other guy stuff. But it’s for women, too.
For the passing lesson, we brought in a mom from Wethersfield, Jen DeStefani, and a dad from West Hartford, Winfield Latif.
They both got lessons from Travis along with me. Tune in after the game on Thursdays for the Man Cave, you’ll learn something, and hear who Travis thinks my QB style is most like. Funny stuff.
For the record, I did play football for a few years when I was younger, and I was a skinny kid who didn’t like to get hurt and I wasn’t very good.
A guy on my Pop Warner team in Norwood, Massachusetts did make it big…though, not in football. Dickie Barrett (Dick Barrett in the photo below) is the lead singer of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and the announcer for the Jimmy Kimmel show.
