Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast No. 9: Private Quarterback Training with Rich Bartel and Will Hewlett

Will Hewlett (above) and Rich Bartel, two nationally-known quarterback trainers, join Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast for a conversation about private QB instruction and why it’s getting more credit and criticism than it deserves in the national media when it comes to talent development and opportunity for advancement at the game’s highest levels.

When the Raiders cut Christian Hackenberg shortly after it acquired him in a trade with the New York Jets, Sports Illustrated writer Robert Klemko reflected upon Hackenberg and what he learned while reporting and writing a feature on the former Penn State star:

Rich Bartell and Will Hewlett, two former college quarterbacks and current coaches of the position, responded to Klemko’s statements on Twitter with a pair of short videos about the nature of private training and while they agree with Klemko that race and socioeconomics in America are variables that affect opportunities for success in football, they disagree with Klemko’s statement that private training “has become essential for QBs” — something you wouldn’t expect from two individuals in this industry who are critical about the world of private QB instruction.

On this week’s podcast, Bartell and Hewlett join Matt Waldman for a discussion about private training and where they believe racism and socioeconomics has the greatest impact on the quarterback development process.
