Klein Brings Passing Academy to Salina

Former Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein is bringing a passing academy to Salina.
The Heisman Trophy finalist is touring the state of Kansas, teaching kids from third grade through incoming high school seniors about football.
The Salina edition of the Collin Klein Passing Academy begins Tuesday with registration at 8am for grades 3-8, with camp running from 9am to noon. High school registration starts at noon with camp running from 1pm to 4pm. Both camps are at Salina Stadium.
While the camp has a focus on passing and receiving positions, Klein tells KSAL Sports the camp is open to those who play any position. Klein says he had a few linemen show up to the event in Wichita, simply because they wanted to run receiving routes and catch the football.
Klein says he’s still in contact with a couple of NFL teams, but is using this passing academy to give back to the community and share his passion for the game.
Klein will be joined by several other coaches of various experience, ranging from his father, Doug, to Salina Bomber quarterback and former Sacred Heart quarterback Dane Simoneau, and former high school quarterback and current state senator Garrett Love.
Cost of the camp is $45, and is due at registration.
