Johnny Manziel Training in Pacific Ocean with QB Guru George Whitfield Jr.

Ian BergCorrespondent IDecember 31, 2016

When you win the Heisman as a freshman, there isn’t much more to achieve at the collegiate level. Johnny Manziel isn’t satisfied, however, and he is in California training with quarterback guru George Whitfield Jr.

Recent photos of the workout were pointed out by Graham Watson of Yahoo! Sports. Just when you thought the beach was only good for vacations, Whitfield Jr. and Manziel show that the waves are also good for training elite quarterbacks.

The resistance of the waves is tough to stand up against and this must be a drill designed to keep Manziel on his feet while pressure is closing in.

You can see from the intensity that Whitfield Jr. is expressing that this is a high-energy drill.

Later in the day, the coach posted a photo on his Twitter account showing ESPN College GameDay host Kirk Herbstreit stopping by for a visit.

Expect an early-season feature on the Heisman winner’s training program this fall.

Whitfield has worked with a number of top quarterbacks in the past, with Manziel becoming the latest to gain insight from his training academy in San Diego, Ca.

Cam Newton, Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck are among the notable alumni.

Manziel first worked with Whitfield before the 2012 season, leading to his Heisman Trophy run. Returning to the coast to study at the Whitfield Athletix complex simply makes sense.

For all the offseason distractions that seemed to follow Manziel this summer, he appears to be taking his game seriously after a strong spring game and workouts in the waves.

A second run at the Heisman looks to be in the cards for Manziel this fall.
