George Whitfield Jr., The QB Whisperer

By Jason Priestas on February 8, 2013 at 5:22p

You may recall hearing news of Braxton Miller working with famed quarterback guru George Whitfield Jr. over the holidays:

The Massillon native, through his training program Whitfield Football, has worked with some of the best quarterbacks in the game today, a list that includes Andrew Luck, Cam Newton, Johnny Manziel, Ben Roethlisberger, Landry Jones, and Tajh Boyd.

Whitfield has Ohio State connections, too. He was recruited to play for Jim Tressel at Youngstown State, but later transferred to Tiffin. His uncle, defensive end Dave Whitfield, was a starter on the 1968 national championship team.

The tutor has been working with Miller on his "chaos mechanics" which is elite coachspeak for how Miller reacts to pressure and plays that otherwise break down. You know, keeping your eyes downfield, maintaining proper footwork. That sort of thing.
