COLUMBIA - Mizzou Football senior quarterback James Franklin will serve as a camp counselor at the Manning Passing Academy, the football camp operated by one of the most recognizable families in quarterbacking, from July 11-14 in Thibodaux, La. Franklin will have the opportunity to work alongside and learn from Archie, Eli and Peyton Manning, and their elite staff.
As a sophomore in 2011, Franklin turned heads around the nation by accumulating an outstanding 3,846 yards of total offense and 36 total touchdowns.
