Quarterback Guru visits East Texas

Posted: Updated:
TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Unless you have East Texan Adrian Peterson in the backfield, football has become a passing game. From high school to the pros. As the quarterback goes, so goes the team. On Wednesday, East Texas Sports caught up QB guru Brad Frazier, who brought his old school coaching to East Texas.

Some area quarterbacks were lucky enough to learn from one of the best QB coaches in the state in Brad Frazier. The former Aggie has knowledge that goes way back.

"My dad was a head coach and athletic director for 25 years," Frazier said. "So when we started coming up with names, I thought about what my dad taught that the basis of winning comes from fundamentals. So the ideal name for it was old school quarterbacks"

The rest is history as the "Old School Quarterbacks" have been around 13 years. Brad currently works with seven canadian football QB's, over 30 college guys, and high school quarterbacks.

"This past year I had Casey Pachall out of TCU, Colton Browning out of Louisiana Monroe, and then Clint Chelf from Oklahoma State," Frazier said. Brook Hill quarterback Grant Hanks added, "His track record makes me have respect for him and do the things he tells me to make me better."

Like most successful coaches, Frazier starts with teaching the fundamentals that make a solid signal caller. "We feel like with improved technique you get improved performance," Frazier said. "Most kids dont know how to throw explosively, they dont understand the logistics of throwing the football."

Hanks added,"I didn't know how much the lower body had to do it with it as much as the arm so hopefully that will help me just elevate my game even more."

Some of the concepts the 'Old School QB' instills in the player are foreign at first, but in the long run make him better. "I'm going to take how to stay in the pocket, and stay in touch so I can make the good throw," John Tyler quarterback Stone Johnson said.

Making the good throw on a consistent basis may one day add these guys to the long list that went onto to be successful under coach Frazier.
