Adrian Martinez

Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez is listed as one of the camp counselors for the Manning Passing Academy. 

LINCOLN — Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez is among the camp counselors for the 2019 Manning Passing Academy, which started Thursday.

Martinez is listed in the Manning Passing Academy brochure as one of the counselors, and the academy confirmed his presence at the camp Friday morning.

Most of the camp involves college quarterbacks mentoring high school quarterbacks, with the opportunity to meet with Peyton, Eli and Archie Manning. There is typically a skills competition for the college quarterbacks, which will occur Saturday in Thibodaux, Louisiana. A handful of NFL media usually attends part of the event, as well, in part to interact with quarterbacks who could be in the pros one day.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Martinez, who had the best freshman season in Husker history, would be the third Nebraska quarterback to attend the camp. Tanner Lee did multiple times, and Taylor Martinez was the first in 2013.

Other quarterbacks listed as counselors include Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, Oregon’s Justin Herbert, Iowa’s Nate Stanley, Colorado’s Steven Montez and, oddly, Buffs wide receiver Laviska Shenault Jr.
