"Kelly will be among 11 of the nation’s top quarterbacks at ESPN RISE’s Elite 11 finals in July, the nation’s premier quarterback competition for prep athletes."
Former Baltimore Ravens QB Trent Dilfer will be the host coach at the Elite 11 Finals, which take place July 18-22 at Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif.
“Going out to Malibu, that’s pretty special,” Kelly said via telephone Thursday. “I’ve only been to California a few times. But now practicing with the top quarterbacks in the nation, that’s going to be pretty sweet. Who knows, maybe down the road you’re going to be teammates with one of them or something. It’s definitely going to be pretty special.”
Notable Elite 11 alumni include Vince Young, Matt Leinart, Mark Sanchez, Matthew Stafford and Tim Tebow.
