About Five-StarAbout_Five-Star.html

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

Winter Groups 2015
Starting January 24th
Tyler Murphy’s success continues at Boston College

This season at Boston College, Tyler Murphy set an ACC rushing record for a quarterback with 1,079 yards (and 10 TDs), shattering the BC single-season and career records along the way. He’s also thrown for 1,526 yards and 11 TDs, offsetting 10 interceptions.

He’s been a star -- the right player in the right place at the right time.

But it took a long time for him to get here. Lightly recruited as a junior in high school in Wethersfield, Connecticut, Murphy started working with QB coach Travis Meyer in hopes of improving his game enough to attract more attention.

The pair worked to improve Murphy’s throwing mechanics, and Meyer put together a film reel to win over skeptical coaches.

“There are a couple of reasons,” Meyer said of the lack of recruiting interest in Murphy. “Being in Connecticut, it’s partially because of the state. Connecticut is not a hotbed for football and especially for quarterbacks.”

“I think the perception is that the level of talent he was playing against wasn’t as great as other states. The line of thinking was he might look great on film, but he’s playing against subpar athletes.”

He drew some interest from home-state school UConn, as well as Temple and a few others.

“I know Fordham was trying to get him,” Meyer said. “They loved him, they thought he was extremely talented. I remember talking to the coaches once or twice, they never said it, but I had a feeling that if they could get him they felt they were getting a steal because he was being overlooked.”

The offseason of work helped drum up more interest.

“His junior film was OK, but it wasn’t anything like you saw in his senior film,” Meyer said. “There was vast improvement, as a quarterback but also as an athlete. He flourished.”

Murphy committed to Al Golden and Temple, but then Meyer connected him with two coaches he knew at Florida -- Scot Loeffler and Steve Addazio.

Addazio -- then the Gators’ offensive coordinator -- is a Farmington, Connecticut, native and happened to go to high school with Murphy’s aunt. So the coach and the quarterback bonded, Florida offered him a scholarship and Murphy jumped at the chance.

“I don’t know, who knows where I would have been?” Murphy said, when asked where he might have ended up without Meyer’s help. “I’m just happy that he was there on my side to help me out and I tell him that all the time. I thank him all the time for that.”

Even though the on-field experience at Florida -- which involved more bench time than playing time, and ended with a shoulder injury derailing his shot at the starting job -- didn’t work out exactly as he’d hoped.

“It was tough for him to deal with, I think,” Meyer said. “But I think anytime I talked to him, I almost felt like I was more upset for him than he seemed to be. Because I felt like he should have been playing. He took a big risk going down there, I helped him go down there. He always had spirits up about it, but at the same time wasn’t going to settle for not playing.”
