Greer Checks Out Camps

In 2012, Tynen Greer completed 48-82 passes (58.5%) for 750 yards, nine touchdowns and just one interception. He also ran for three touchdowns.

Last year, Montour (PA) quarterback Tynen Greer split playing time with two other quarterbacks-part of a rare three quarterback system.

Despite having to share snaps, Greer still had big numbers. He completed 48-82 passes (58.5%) for 750 yards, nine touchdowns and just one interception. He also ran for three touchdowns.

Greer will take all the snaps at quarterback this season. Though Montour lost a lot of starters on both sides of the ball, he expects this year's team to keep the winning tradition going.

"It's looking good so far," Greer said. "We're just looking to keep it up, like we have been . With the kids we had graduating, we're just trying to keep the tradition going. We keep getting better every day.

Greer says the competition in the Parkway Conference will be tough as it usually is, something he feels brings the best out in his team.

"It's tough, it just gets better every year," Greer said. "Everybody says it's going to go down because of the prospects we lose every year, but everybody just seems to reload. Week in and week out it's tough going from team to team, because they just keep getting better and better."

Greer has made it to a few camps this summer. His Montour team made it to the championship game in their respective bracket for the Pitt passing camp. Individually, he went to a handful of schools within a reasonable driving distance.

"I've even to a lot of places, I've been to Youngstown State, Massachusetts, Temple, Bowling Green," Greer said. "I'm just looking to get my name out there, but I'd rather just play. I love to just play football."

One thing he saw at Bowling Green, just as an example, it's easy to learn one new thing in just one day, despite years of playing experience.

"You can learn new stuff every day," Greer said. "At Bowling Green, their quarterbacks coach coached Josh Freeman (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), who is a very good quarterback in the NFL. The stuff that he was teaching us, I had no idea about. There was a lot of guys out there, so you can always learn."

Greer was also impressed with UMass, who is new to the FBS ranks. He could tell they've come pretty far in a short time as an FBS school.

"It's getting there," Greer said. "They're building a lot of new stuff up there. The facilities are getting there. They'll be premier in a couple years."
