Former quarterback Sean Schroeder’s UH career might have been short — three semesters — but it left an impression.
Schroeder’s non-profit organization — 808 Passing Academy — will hold its first camp on June 25 at the TC Ching Athletic Complex.
There is no admission fee.
The camp is open to students currently enrolled in high school. Although the camp will emphasize passing and receiving, all position players are welcomed.
Among the instructors are: Ashley Lelie, Garrett Gabriel, Miah Ostrowski, Jeremy Higgins, Cayman Shutter, Jordan Pu‘u-Robinson and Craig Cofer.
Also, quarterback guru Vince Passas is a featured instructor.
Schroeder transferred to UH in 2012 after earning a bachelor’s degree at Duke. That season he was hit about 120 times, but never complained.
The following year, his rehab from offseason surgery cost him the starter’s job. But he never complained, and eventually reclaimed the No. 1 spot.
He said the opportunity to play college football and earn an advanced education (he received a master’s degree from UH) prompted him to “pay it forward.”
His organization and sponsors will cover the camp’s expenses, including insurance.
