Friday afternoon Teurlings product Cole Kelley (Arkansas) stood shoulder to shoulder with two-time Super Bowl champion Eli Manning joking about Arkansas’ 38-37 comeback win on Ole Miss from this past year.

It’s a moment the sophomore will never forget.

"It’s pretty much like a dream come true really," he said. "Because being invited here means you’re doing something right."

Kelley was selected as one of nearly 40 current college quarterbacks to coach at the 23 Annual Manning Passing Academy. He was joined by stars Jalen Hurts (Alabama) Trace McSorley (Penn State) and Jake Browning (Washington) as well as the Manning family from Archie, to Eli, Peyton and Cooper.

In 2017, Kelley celebrated a successful freshman campaign with the Razorbacks in which he started 4 games, threw 10 touchdowns, while completing 57 percent of his passes.
