Missouri's James Franklin to work at Manning Passing Academy

Wednesday, July 10, 2013 | 3:18 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Missouri football senior quarterback James Franklin, of Corinth, Texas, 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. He enters his final campaign at Missouri looking to bounce back from an injury-plagued junior season in 2012. Franklin has passed for 4,533 yards in his career with 32 touchdown tosses, while scoring 17 times on the ground.

Following the academy, Franklin will accompany head coach Gary Pinkel to the 2013 SEC Media Days in Hoover, Ala., on Tuesday with fellow seniors L’Damian Washington and Andrew Wilson.
