LSU quarterback Joe Burrow will be a camp counselor at the 2019 Manning Passing Academy, according to the camp's official brochure.

The returning starting Tigers quarterback is among 24 announced college quarterbacks who will be counselors at the camp, which has been owned and operated by the Manning family since 1996 in Thibodaux.

Other quarterbacks include Clemson's Trevor Lawrence, Georgia's Jake Fromm and Southern Cal's JT Daniels.

The camp runs from June 26-30 and includes passing clinics for boys and girls, hosted at Nicholls State University.

Former New Orleans Saints quarterback Archie Manning founded the academy, and he still teaches youth the fundamentals of passing along with his three sons, Cooper, and two-time Super Bowl champion NFL quarterbacks Peyton and Eli.

Burrow led LSU to its first 10-win season since 2013 as a graduate transfer from Ohio State, throwing for 2,894 yards, 16 touchdowns and five interceptions in 2018, while rushing for 399 yards and seven touchdowns.

Burrow was named the Offensive MVP of the Fiesta Bowl, where LSU beat Central Florida 40-32 in its first New Year's Six Bowl victory in the College Football Playoff era.
