After graduating from Wayzata High School in 2007, C.J. Schuh knew he wanted to stay around football in some capacity. Considering he played quarterback all through high school, it only seemed natural.
So in the summer of 2011, Schuh made his dream a reality, creating the Minnesota Quarterback Club, a camp which provides each participant with a detail-oriented program to help improve overall skill-sets; eight young men attended the first year.
“There was nothing like this when I was [on the playing field], and I knew there would be a desire for it,” says Schuh, who’s since expanded the camp to a year-round training clinic. “I wanted to create a program where I can help quarterbacks improve with more individual attention. It’s very rewarding and fun at the same time.”
While aiming to teach aspiring quarterbacks the skills they need going forth in their careers, his ultimate goal, he says, is to help every participant reach his fullest potential.
The camp has doubled each year, with 30 quarterbacks in the latest session and is looking to expand by adding additional coaches as well as allowing receivers and tight ends to participate, as early as next year. Meanwhile, in the “off season,” Schuh offers personal training in quarterback coaching. Sixteen sessions for $480, eight sessions for $280; sessions last one hour, with no more than three players in a session at a time.
