Coach Lucci wants to give everyone the feel of a College Atmosphere.....
The Quarterback Combine is Very Proud to ANNOUNCE: 3 year Solo Direct Understudy of Coach Lucci and 2 year Elite 13 QB: Max Heltzer (Harvard Westlake) will be attending and playing football for UCLA. Heltzer was granted a Walk-On Status by Coach Neuheisel. We are so happy for Max. Coach Lucci has personally known Max since the age of 9 years old and is very happy for his Mom and Dad also. Good Luck Max.
When The Quarterback Combine several years ago was at Pasadena City College, another QB that trained at the Quarterback Combine is also at UCLA, Justin Posthuma. great Job JP.
This makes 3 Quarterbacks that Trained at the QB Combine, Nick Crissman, Max Heltzer, and Justin Posthuma are all at UCLA. Wide Receivers Randoll Caroll was also a QB Combine athlete.
SOLO/PRIVATE QUARTERBACKS: That are training with Coach Lucci::::::::
This is per Coach Lucci: Due to the throwing pressure and over 200 throws at The Quarterback Combine it is better to take it easy during the week until a few weeks go by andthe Combine is over. Coach tried to Coach some of his direct Student QBS many whom which play other sports such as Volleyball , Baseball and the strain is a bit tomuch right now. With 7 on 7 going to start up for The Direct Understudies, Coach Lucci wants the QBs with fresh arms. Grant it that the Quarterbacks have all gotten much stronger especially in their throws, they are way ahead of their training, all of them.. Coach Lucci isgoing to play thisone by ear. For example , this Sundays Combine is going tobe very strenuous, with game scenerios. I will keep you Posted. Maybe one day during the week plus the Combine, I will check with Coach Lucci
QUARTERBACK COMBINE QUARTERBACKS::::::2011
In the past few weeks the level of play, training and throws have escalated over 200%. The Qbs were extremely throwing at a higher level the past 2 weeks, but this is what is all about. Its a process a progression. These 2 Day mini camps around etc, are only suited for the POLISHED QB coming in to throw some "reps" and get out. These QBs are on a constant higher learning, making an abundance of throws week after week to get Game Ready. Listed Below is where we are at on a grading basis:
Quarterback Drill Work: B+
Work Ethics: B+
Throwing "air": B+
7 on 7: C+
The 7 on 7 grade now brings us to this resolution: Coach Lucci has decided now, he is going to put the boys in more game scenerios, one on ones, 2 on 3's and 7 on 7. Less Throwing rotations for now, just fire game time. This will be great for all the QBs.
