Kevin Murray


Kevin Murray started his personal QB training in 2006 with a single client. "The client's father had the vision that my son can separate himself from other quarterbacks, if he worked on his game consistently with a private QB coach, the same way up and coming baseball and golf professionals do". As of today AIR14 expanded with an emphasis on growing and developing QB's and enhancing their knowledge of the passing game.

What separates Kevin from most is his reputation and relationships he has formed with high school and collegiate Coaches across the country. Having experienced a tremendous amount of success as a player himself within the State of Texas, Kevin has managed to build a tremendous network with Coaches across the state, and beyond.

Kevin helps high school players produce highlight tapes and gives advice about the recruiting process. He uses his vast network of contacts to help players get in the recruiting game. "I simply tell the coaches, here are kids that can play for you. You go out and recruit them."

Kevin was previously serving as the QB's Coach at Parish Episcopal High School in Dallas and has coached in some capacity working with Youth QB's the past 10 years.

He was an All-State QB out of North Dallas High School, where he graduated in 1982. Murray was also voted Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex Offensive Player of the Year coming off a stellar Senior season. Murray signed on to play for Texas A&M; University after high school.

During Kevin's tenure at Texas A&M;, he served as the leader of one of the Southwest Conference most successful teams of the 80's. Having played for one of the winningest Collegiate Coaches of our time in Jackie Sherrill, Kevin was tutored by the likes of one of the most successful QB's in the history of Football in Dan Marino. Marino and Murray were Jackie's prized pupils on the collegiate level. Murray has also formed a bond with another Hall of Fame Quarterback in Warren Moon, most recently of the Houston Oilers as well as Gary Kubiak former Aggie Quarterback and Murray's predecessor at A&M; and current Houston Texans Head Coach.

The third game of the 1984 season was a heart breaker for Murray and the Aggies, as he broke his ankle in a game against Arkansas State late in the 3rd quarter. He underwent surgery and was lost for the season.

In 1985 he received a hardship ruling on his ankle injury giving him an additional year of eligibility. He went on to earn second team All American honors from the Football News and was runner up for the Offensive MVP honors in the 1986 Cotton Bowl victory over Auburn (36-16). Murray completed 16 of 26 passes for 292 yards, which included one touchdown and one interception.

Murray was named Offensive Player of the Year by the AP, the Dallas Morning News and the Houston Chronicle for his efforts in 1985. Murray departed as the SWC All time leader in touchdowns. He also held all of Texas A&M;'s passing records (completions, career passing percentage, TD's). He enrolled at Texas A&M; in the fall of 1983. He started the season as the #3 quarterback. He ended the season as the Southwest Conference Newcomer of the Year by AP & UPI and was named second-team All Conference quarterback by both services. He finished the year as the SWC's total offense leader averaging 164.3 yards per game and was the first in the conference with 14 touchdown tosses. He finished with a record of 132-249-9, passing for 1,544 yards and 14 touchdowns with a completion percentage of 53 percent.
