McCown Brothers Come Home For QB Camp

The McCown brothers are back in East Texas, hosting their annual quarterbacks camp.

"It's fun to come back," Josh McCown says. "If anything, it's a privilege to have this camp and work with the kids."

The McCowns are East Texas's first family of quarterbacks. Oldest Randy quarterbacked Texas A&M. Josh is the starting quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals. Youngest Luke was a fourth-round pick of the Cleveland Browns this season.

The McCown QB Camp is a hands-on experience, with only the McCowns and longtime quarterbacks coach Matt Turner providing instruction. Josh says the brothers want to do more than just teach football to their students.

"If they're going to look up to you," he says, "you want to lead a good example. We've obviously been blessed, so we want to live up to the abilities and standards we set for ourselves."

After the morning talk the two would leave the AC cooled office and venture into the heat to look for an apartment. Five years ago, Arledge would have never thought his life would bring him to Lufkin.
