How Five-Star Began:

Because of the tremendous success of the quarterbacks I coached and the subsequent demand for my coaching services, New England Five-Star Quarterbacks was established by me, Travis Meyer, as a private business in March, 2009.  Although I had coached as a team quarterbacks coach at the high school level for seven years, and although I enjoyed the impact I could make on my players, I felt as though I could use my knowledge and talents to help a much larger number of quarterbacks.  And that is exactly what I set out to do.

The Five-Star Mission:

There are kids out there who just need the right coaching in order to take their abilities and hard-work to the collegiate level.  I believe that when I take-on a QB to instruct and mentor, I am accepting a serious responsibility. Because of this approach, the improvement and the success of the Five-Star QB’s has been unparalleled.

There are QB coaches throughout America.  There are hundreds of camps to choose from, and many tout the “big name” players who have attended in the past.  But the private coaches who attend to the quality of their knowledge and instruction are the ones responsible for the sound mechanics of the top college and NFL QB’s.  Even a select few attempt to latch-on to the success of kids they didn’t really coach.  Each player listed as being coached by me has given his commitment to enter into the Five-Star Family, or has already proven his dedication during the many hours he has already logged working with me.  Therefore, the credit goes to them.  It is simply my responsibility to teach them what I know.

Five St  r Quarterback 


By Travis Meyer

My recent experience as the exclusive QB coach for ESPN’s Emerging Technologies’ Performance Zone. 

I was recently asked by ESPN’s Emerging Technology department to work with the quarterbacks at a pilot project, called the “Performance Zone.”  The concept involves combine testing using the newest technologies to assess the athletes’ performance. 

In order to assess the quarterbacks, we employed radar technology to time their three, five, and seven step drops.  We also used motion capture to find mechanical flaws in the quarterbacks’ throwing motions and footwork.

Steve Spurrier, Nick Saban rave about Florida QB Tyler Murphy

Tyler Murphy has picked up all kinds of new fans since taking over at quarterback for the Gators. Add South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier and Alabama’s Nick Saban to the list.

Both of those coaches caught a glimpse of Murphy while preparing for their games this week. The Gamecocks visit Arkansas, while Alabama is at Kentucky. Those are the last two games Murphy faced, so he showed up during film breakdowns.

“He’s a dang good player,” Spurrier said. “His throwing motion is beautiful. He throws a nice, catchable ball. He can move around in the pocket. You’d never think the young man hadn’t played but 2-3 games.

He must’ve looked good in practice down there, but he finally got his chance. That’s the way it works out: you get your chance and make the most of it. He’s a very good player. He throws the ball beautifully. Fundamentally sound. All their receivers are catching everything. He throws a very catchable ball. He’s a very good quarterback.”

Casey Cochran Leads UCONN to 3 Straight Wins

Casey finally got his shot to put his skills on display at the end of the 2013 season, and he didn’t disappoint! 

Since 2007, Casey has trained with Travis Meyer.  After winning two state titles in high school and the Connecticut Gatorade Player of the Year Award, he received a full scholarship to the UCONN Huskies. 

Casey redshirted in his freshman season.  And for much of the 2013 season, he watched from the sidelines as his team struggled to put points on the board.  That’s when they turned to Casey.  After a loss in his first start as a redshirt freshman, he went on to lead his team to 3 straight wins to end the season.  In doing so, he threw for over 1,200 yards with a completion percentage of 63%.  He threw for 11 touchdowns with just 4 interceptions.  In his final start, Casey threw for 461 yards, a new UCONN record (previously held by Dan Orlovsky).  He also threw 4 TD passes, and was named AAC player of the week.
