MISSION VIEJO, Calif. (AP) - If leadership counts for anything, New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez might have a leg-up on teammate Geno Smith for the starting position.
Sanchez has been the engineer of Jets West Camp, a three-day get-together at his former high school for several of his teammates, which concludes Saturday.
The itinerary includes classroom work to study film and plays, as well as on-field passing drills.
The camp has given some of Sanchez's teammates a chance to see him in a somewhat new role.
But for Sanchez, it's all about the competition and preparing for it. Being the star quarterback at Mission Viejo High School and USC helped him realize the importance of being prepared on the field, and building bonds off of it.
