THIBADOUX, LA (KCBD) - Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege traveled to Thibadoux, La., this weekend to instruct high schoolers in the Manning Passing Academy and compete in the "Air It Out" competition Saturday night.

Although Syracuse's Charlie Loeb won the competition over the likes of USC's Matt Barkley and other college football elite, Doege still used this experience to get better as a signal caller.

"The best part is getting up here and meeting all the other elite quarterbacks you see on tv," Doege told reporters before the competition. "You develop friendships...and working out with Peyton and Eli [Manning] is just a fun experience. There's really nothing like it."

"You don't get this experience just randomly," the former Wolfforth Frenship quarterback said. "You're talking about two of the best quarterbacks ever to play the game. We do get to ask them questions, maybe problems we've had on the field."

Doege will return to Tech this fall for his senior season after he threw for over 4,000 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2011.
