Is Kadarius Toney poised for a starring role in Giants’ injury-riddled offense?
By Art Stapleton, USA Today
Toney was a dual threat quarterback at Alabama’s Blount High School, and a great one at that. He attended the Manning Passing Academy and unleashed one throw that left David Morris, then a counselor at the camp, in disbelief.
“I see this ball just flying, soaring through the air, looking like it came out of a JUGS machine,” said Morris, the lead instructor for QB Country who has trained quarterbacks for years. Among his clients: Toney and Jones. “You don’t see balls thrown like that often, especially not at that age, and I was like, ‘Man, somebody threw that?’ I walk over and see this skinny guy and he’s just launching it. Everybody’s taking videos and pictures.”
Morris paused before adding: “He was a gifted athlete, but KT could really throw it. I always thought – and I still believe it – that if Kadarius stayed at quarterback, he was gonna be the next Lamar Jackson or Kyler Murray, one of those guys. He was that electric.”
