Von Miller offers virtual pass-rushing clinic for college football players

Denver Broncos, NCAA Football

Von Miller will be holding his Pass Rush Summit virtually this summer.

Getting after the quarterback is what has made Von Miller a household name.

The 31-year-old outside linebacker of the Denver Broncos will be a Pro Football Hall of Famer and a College Football Hall of Famer shortly after he retires. The Super Bowl 50 MVP has been an eight-time Pro Bowler in Denver and been on three All-Pro First Teams. In college at Texas A&M, he was a two-time First-Team All-American and took home the Butkus Award in 2010.

Despite having his hall of fame legacies already etched in stone, Miller is always looking for ways to get better at his craft. So for the fourth-straight year, Miller will host the Pass Rush Summit. He has welcomed pro and college football players to this year’s pass-rushing clinic. The only difference is it will be done virtually this year due to the global pandemic.

Von Miller welcomes college players to his virtual Pass Rush Summit.

The virtual event will take place on Thursday, June 25 between 6:00 p.m. ET and 8:00 p.m. ET. Miller told professionals and college athletes to send him a direct message on Twitter so they can get the information so that they can “link and learn”.

The Pass Rush Summit is something completely unique. Passing academies and seven-on-seven have become the norm for aspiring college and pro quarterbacks. It has become somewhat of a cottage industry in the last decade-plus. While moving the sticks aerially with your arm is important, more so than ever is it important in figuring out to drive a quarterback into the turf.

The cool part about this pass-rushing clinic it is allows the players to share what works for them and their skill set. Some guys may have incredibly quick and strong hands. Others may have a great first step or two once the ball is snapped. Whether its a bull rush, a swim move or a spin move, there are so many ways front-seven defenders can go about rushing the passer.

When the Pass Rush Summit first happened, some may have questioned why these defensive linemen and outside linebackers would want to willingly give up their trade secrets when it comes to slowing down the opposition’s passing game. What people have failed to realize is everybody can benefit from coming together and sharing information over a common passion.

So if you want to learn from Miller on Thursday, slide into his DM’s and get the details.
