Dr. Michael Gervais, High Performance Psychologist, was featured in this year’s Elite 11 training camp. This year’s finals were held at Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif., July 18-22. Twenty-four of the best signal callers in the nation competed. Former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer and a team of coaches evaluated players’ skill, on-field intelligence and overall performance.
“The Elite 11 camp was incredibly competitive for the top high school quarterback prospects in the Country,” says Michael Gervais, PhD. “Their ability to thrive, with little sleep, with the ESPN cameras on, in a high-stakes competitive environment was inspiring to all who was part of the camp. It was a joy to be part of developing and fine-tuning their competitive mindset. I can’t wait to see how these fine young men capture their skill and talents in years to come.”
