2010 Manning quarterback camp a star-studded event

At Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA, the Manning family held their 2010 Manning Passing Academy camp. The camp list of coaches and participants is a veritable who's-who in college and professional football. From PFT:

The list of this year's coach/participants is impressive. It includes Stanford's Andrew Luck, Florida State's Christian Ponder, Tennessee's Matt Simms, Houston's Case Keenum, Boise State's Kellen Moore, Texas A&M's Jerrod Johnson, LSU's Jordan Jefferson, Alabama's Greg McElroy, and T.J. Yates of North Carolina.

Ohio State's Terrelle Pryor, Washington's Jake Locker, and Jacory Harris of Miami (FL) were invited, but unable to attend. Ryan Mallett of Arkansas is still rehabbing an injury.

On hand for "coaching" only purposes are longtime Bengals quarterback Ken Anderson, ESPN analyst Jesse Palmer, Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, and Colts receiver Austin Collie, among others.

Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Cooper Manning, and papa Archie Manning were all on-hand. There was also an "Air It Out" challenge over the weekend won by Texas Tech's Taylor Potts. Sam Bradford of Oklahoma (drafted #1 overall by the St. Louis Rams in this year's NFL Draft) won the contest last year.
