Daron came to camp with a fire! He wanted to come back and show em what he got there after a disappointing QB competition in Ohio. Daron won the Best QB 9-10 Award and Peyton Manning Award for Best Youth QB at the camp! He also got an invitation to play in the Offense Defense Youth All American Bowl Game in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on Jan 2, 2012! Coaches there were very impressed with him and said he s going to have an awesome future. He was selected the first QB for his team. His team won the Super Bowl Game on the last day of camp. He will play for East team as a QB! Daron had a great time at the camp. It was his first full contact camp with helmets and pads on! He made some new friends that he will keep in touch with. He is looking forward seeing some of his friends in SC again. He will be back playing Offense Defense Full Contact Camp again next year!

Daron s mom made the trip with me and Daron for the first time to see him participated in QB competition. Daron was glad to see some of the QB coaches again when they met them at Las Vegas last year, Daron was making noises with his footwork and throwing mechanics during morning work out before the competition started at 4 later in the afternoon. Daron was the youngest QB to be invited! That s a great honor to have. Bad news was Daron was called first to do gauntlet QB competition. He didnt know exactly what he needed to do to make the final four or how the competition worked. Daron missed targets by inches and didnt know where to run as coaches guided him when he needed to go while he was doing the gauntlet competition. There were 25 kids before Daron. Daron didnt make the final four as he was very disappointed. It was the first QB competition he lost since he was 7! I told Daron that all QB have great and bad days. I told him that it s a good learning experience for him and he needed to keep his head up because we are still very proud of Daron no matter what! Great Job Daron youll get em back next year!

We toured Football Hall of Fame, University of Akron Football Stadium, Kent State Football Stadium and Cleveland Browns Stadium the next year! We all had a great time together. We will never forget the trip we had!

Daron participated Andrew Pinnock s 6th Grade to 9th Grade Camp.

Daron was doing one of the QB drills with the 6th-9th Grafe kids.

Daron had a great time showing the older kids what he could do. The kids really enjoyed being around with Daron. Daron played for Coach Jason Manson (Former Iowa Hawkeye s QB) and his 7 on 7 team won first place in the division with 7-2-1 record. Andrew s son Andrell was on Daron s team! They had a lot of fun. Daron also met few NFL players including Dwight Freeney. We had to leave the camp quickly in the afternoon because he had to catch the flight to Ohio for the Duel of the Dozens National QB Competition.
