Hey, y’all, I'm Peter Griffith and I’m a quarterback trainer and founder of The West Texas Passing Academy. Like the Academy, I was born and raised right here in Lubbock. After playing the quarterback position and coaching at the varsity level for a number of years, I started the WTPA because I saw a need for quality quarterback training in the West Texas area.
Our Hidden Gem is in our name. West Texas. We feel strongly that there js so much potential in West Texas, including in our hallways. The quarterback position is the most difficult position in sports, and we want to make sure we give the tools to West Texas area signal callers that those in the big cities get. West Texas is a sleeping giant, and we are waking it up.
What "Local and Independent" Means to Them
West Texas. An iconic place filled with cotton fields, cowboys, and Friday Night Lights. The West Texas Passing Academy was founded on West Texas values. Hard work, resiliency, and grit are just a few of the things that made us who we are. The goal of the WTPA is to embody these qualities both through the training we provide, as well as in the athletes we train. West Texas is more than a place. It's a state of mind. One that says there's always a better version of ourselves around the corner, and that everyday is a chance to get better. We are The West Texas Passing Academy. We are West Texas.
