Jake Bentley Passing Down Knowledge To Youth

USC quarterback Jake Bentley is making the time to pass down his knowledge of the game before his sophomore year of football starts.

COLUMBIA, SC - USC's Jake Bentley led a group of young quarterbacks and receivers in the Bentley Quarterback-Receiver Camp on Sunday afternoon. Jake, his brother Shuler and father Bobby Bentley run these camps during the summer. Jake and company were putting in some work at Irmo High School.

This has been a busy offseason for Jake. Along with workouts and film study he was learning from the Hall of Fame Manning family last month at the Manning Passing Academy. Who knows maybe the next Jake Bentley will come out of this group. Jake has wasted no time in sharing what he's learned.

"I used a couple of the drills today that I learned from the Manning Camp out here so it's been great for me just to go out there. It's been great for me to be out here with the kids and just you know pour my knowledge into them. So many guys did that for me so I feel like it's my job and my duty to do that for them," Bentley said.

Now Jake is just a rising sophomore and is entering his first full year of football as the presumed starting quarterback for the Gamecocks. But even now he's putting together a coaching resume through the Bentley quarterback-receiver camp .

We'll see a lot of Jake on the field this fall but when it's all said and done he might turn in his cleats for a headset.
"I'm thinking about it," Bentley said. "I've seen the impact coaches have on kids and players so I think that's something I want to do and I feel like I've gained a lot of knowledge over the years. I still have a lot to learn. I still have so much to learn and that's going to be fun doing it. But I think I do want to coach and just kind of pour what I know into other people."
