Nebraska’s annual Red-White Spring Game, 4.12.14 (copy)

If you're active on social media, you likely saw the photos making the rounds Saturday of Tommy Armstrong hanging out with Brett Favre.

The sophomore Husker quarterback, who once considered attending Favre's alma mater of Southern Miss, got some QB advice from the former NFL star over the weekend.

 And here's the two talking shop...

Redshirt freshman quarterback Johnny Stanton isn't keeping still either. It appears he's getting some summer quarterback coaching of his own from QB trainer George Whitfield Jr.

Whitfield, who runs his camp in San Diego, has trained an impressive list of quarterbacks, including some work with Johnny Manziel.

He also lists Andrew Luck and Cam Newton, among many others, who have worked with him.

Whitfield describes his mission on his website as so: "I believe that the true development and maturation of a quarterback and other football players should be as contrasting as the training of a fighter pilot and the mechanics that work on his jet.

Whitfield Athletix is built specifically to train and prepare the skill sets of quarterbacks to succeed through evaluations, testing, and most importantly, defenses."

As Whitfield's list shows, it's become common for college quarterbacks to train with a QB guru outside the program during free periods away from campus. Husker fans grew used to this trend with Taylor Martinez, who spent off-time during his career working with quarterbacks coach Steve Calhoun.
