WAILEA (KHNL) - For football fans in the late 1980's, it might've been a dream to play ball with Joe Montana. For fans today perhaps it'd be with Matt Leinart. Either way, Leilehua quarterback Andrew Manley got to play with both.

This past weekend Manley attended Steve Clarkson's Super Seven Quarterback Academy on Maui. He received tutoring from Montana, Leinart, Warren Moon and a slew of other high profile quarterbacks and coaches. To top it all off his performance did not disappoint against six other top quarterback's in the nation.

Manley soaked up all he could during his time with his peers, and at the feet of those who have gone before him.

"It's amazing to be mentored by some of the greatest quarterbacks ever that my dad has grown up watching, that I've grown up watching, he told me all about Warren Moon, Joe Montana, now Matt Leinart's here, I got a Matt Leinart jersey at home, it's just great," said Manley.

"Steve's always had this idea to bring together the top quarterbacks to have them in one spot at one time and bring in some great people that can also help them steer and guide, I don't think it's done anywhere else. For those guy's it's a tremendous opportunity," said Montana.

Since attending the All Poly Camp, and the Super Seven Camp, many recruiting sites are labeling Manley as a prime time sleeper. So far only the University of Hawaii has offered him a scholarship.
