When former Springdale High and Arkansas assistant Gus Malzahn and former Razorback quarterback Jason Allen started the Top Gun Quarterback Challenge they were the probably the only ones that envisioned the camp going national.

But that is what the camp has done, no thanks in part to Malzahn's national reputation growing each season as Football Recruiting writer Jeremy Crabtree opines in the lead of his weeky recruiting column. 

Their vision resulted in the Northwest Arkansas Quarterback School, an event that helped quarterbacks improve their game, compete against other top local passers and garner attention from recruiters. The event was an instant hit as quarterbacks came from all over the region.

Six years later, the local event has blossomed into the national Top Gun Challenge. This summer, the TGC will hold 10 national events, in cities such as Chicago, Oklahoma City, Charlotte, Los Angeles and Seattle.
