Former UTEP great Jordan Palmer, who still holds records in UTEP's all-time passing game, stopped by practice last week and met with some of the players and coaches throughout the day. Palmer made the trip to El Paso to kick off the football boosters' morning breakfast kickoff and even gave the UTEP quarterbacks some pointers.

Palmer concluded his career as UTEP's record-holder in every passing and total offense category until Trevor Vittatoe eclipsed his numbers in 2010. His 3,595 passing yards in 2006 remain a single-season school record. He is the brother of former Heisman Trophy winner Carson Palmer and was selected by Washington in the 2006 NFL Draft.

He talked with the team about some of the advancements that the game has seen over the years, such as improved speed, how to work at practice and how players should position themselves mentally during the games throughout the season.
