The Ohio State Buckeyes Have Just Signed Some  Phenomenal Spread Offense Player Personnel!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Image result for Julian Fleming Ohio State PhotosThis 2020 Recruiting Class of Wide Receivers is Incredible. I Know That There Have Been Other Recruiting Classes With Incredible Receivers, but This Recruiting Class is Just Phenomenal and The Ohio State Buckeyes Signed Possibly The #1 Wide Receiver in The Country With The Phenomenon Freak Julian Fleming (#4) of Catawissa Southern Columbia, Pennsylvania. This Freak is a Guaranteed NFL #1 Draft Choice.

Fleming (6-2, 200, 4.3, 43, 4.0, 132, 15) Has Recorded Astronomically High and Incredible Speed and Athletic Measurables With Probably THE #1 MEARS RATING In The 2020 Class and He Finished His Senior Football Season With 72-Pass-Catches For 1,582-Yards and 22 Touchdowns as He Helped Lead His Southern Columbia Tigers To-Win Their 10th Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association 2A State Championship.

This Sounds Pretty Good, but The Incredible Part of Julian Fleming is The Fact That Fleming Also Broke The Pennsylvania Career Touchdown Record With 77 Touchdowns and The Career Pass-Receiving Yards Record With 5,514-Yards. With This Incredible Senior Season and These Two Career Pass-Receiving Career Records, Fleming Was Also Named As The Pennsylvania Player of The Year and Also The Pennsylvania Gatorade Player of The Year

With His Great Talent in Football, He is Also a Very Talented Player on The Hardwood and Also on The Track. The Day After Leading His Football Team To The Football State Championship in December, Fleming Was in The Gym Practicing With The Hoops Team.

“On Friday, Fleming Walked-Off The Football Field! On Sunday, We Practiced and Then He Played on Monday at Mahanoy Area and He Scored 11-Points!” Said Basketball Coach Pete Long. Fleming Made The Quick Transition From Football to Basketball as He Was The Basketball Team Leading Scorer With a 19-Point Average and 9 Rebound Average Per Game.

On His Highlight Film, Fleming (In Photo) is an Absolute Freak. He Has Incredible Blazing Speed. I Mean, He is So-Fast, He Makes Defenders Look Like “Slow-Pokes” When They Are Trying To Catch Him.

On One of His 77 Touchdown Catches, Fleming Caught A Short Quick Slant Pattern and Was Facing Four Defenders and Then Raced 75-Yards For The Touchdown. On This Particular Play, Fleming Made The Defenders Look Like “Slow-Poke” Junior High Players as They Were Approaching The 25 and 20-Yard Line as He Crossed The Goal Line.

On Another Play, Fleming Caught another Short Pass in The Left Flat and Out-Raced Four or Five Defenders, Untouched, For a 53-Yard Touchdown. Also On His Highlight Film, Fleming Made Numerous One-Handed Catches.

The Ohio State Buckeyes Signed Julian Fleming, Because He Can Help Them To-Win The Big-10 Championship and Also The National Championship. The Buckeyes Will Also Not Be Able To Keep Fleming Off of The Football Field in The 2020 Football Season, but That is a Great Thing For The Buckeyes and Their Quarterback Justin Fields and Head Football Coach Ryan Day.

With Heisman Trophy Candidate Justin Fields at Quarterback and Super Sophomore X-Wide Receiver Garrett Wilson and Super Z-Wide Receiver Chris Olave as Potential Starters, Along With Fleming, Fields Should Be One of The Most Excited Football Players in Athens, Ohio. Then, With Two of The Greatest Tight Ends in The Country, on The Same Team, in Luke Farrell and Jeremy Ruckert, Fields and Day Should Be Unbelievably Ecstatic.

Here is Another Unbelievable Absolute Football Freak. Paris Johnson, Jr (#77) is a Huge and Incredibly Athletic Offensive Left Offensive Tackle Who Recorded An “Unprecedented” and “Unheard-Of” 120 Pancake-Blocks as a Senior at Cincinnati Princeton, Ohio High School. This Guy is One of The Ohio State Buckeyes Most Unbelievable and Most Promising Incoming Freshman and Also With Another Astronomically High and Incredible Measurables With Probably One of The Top 5 MEARS RATING In The 2020 Class.

Johnson Was Awarded an Amazing Two Awards at The All-American Bowl Game. At This The All-American Bowl Game, Offensive Left Tackle Paris Johnson (6-6, 290, 5.0, 32.5, 4.53, 118, 30) Was Awarded The Anthony Munoz Lineman of The Year Award and Also Man of The Year Award. The latter Award Was Awarded To The Ohio High School Player Who Most Epitomized “A High Standard of Excellence in Community Service and Athletic Distinction” For an Ohio High School Football Player. 

The NBC Broadcast Crew Explained Why Johnson (In Photo With Mom Monica Johnson) Started The Paris Johnson Jr Foundation, Which Helps Young Athletes and Disabled Veterans.

“I Hold A Very Special Place in My Heart For Our Veterans, Because of Their Sacrifices That Allow Me To-Play Football.” Said Johnson. “I Also Love Giving-Back To Kids, Because I Feel Like My Whole Life That People Have Invested in Me as far as Helping Me With My Training, With My Education and Always Making Sure I Had Extra Resources to Always Compete in The Classroom and Compete on The Football Field. I Would Like T0-Do The Same Thing For Other People.”

The West All-American Bowl Game Team, Also Included Ohio State Buckeye Incoming Freshman OT Paris Johnson, Jr, Quarterback C.J. Stroud, Wide Receiver Gee Scott, and Free Safety Lathan Ransom. They Pulled Away for a 33-20 All-American Bowl Game Victory Over The East All-American Bowl Game Team, That Also Included Ohio State Buckeye Incoming Freshman Outside Linebacker Cody Simon and Offensive Tackle Josh Fryar.

The Incredible Paris Johnson, With Incredible Measurables, Including a 5.0 Flat Forty, a 32-5 Vertical Jump and a 4.53 Pro Shuttle, Has All of The Tools To Be a Prototypical Left Offensive Tackle For The Buckeyes and He is Already Projected as a 2023 #1 Draft Choice, Along With Julian Fleming.

I Seriously Do Not Know What Ohio State Buckeye Head Football Coach Ryan Day is Going To-Do With All of These Absolute Wide Receiver Freaks. By Signing Julian Fleming, The Ohio State Buckeyes Signed A Wide Receiver Who Might Not Only Be The #1 Freshman Wide Receiver in The Country in 2020, But Also The #1 Player in The 2020 Class, but The Buckeyes Also Signed Another Wide Receiver From Texas, Named Jaxon Smith-Njigba (#11), Who Could Also Vie For That Wide Receiver #1 Honor.

Smith-Njigba (6-1, 188, 4.42, 36, 4.01, 126) is Definitely Not a Complete Total Speed Freak Like Fleming, But He Matches Fleming in Freaky Quickness With His Sensational 4.01 Pro Shuttle, His Pass-Catching Stats, and His One-Handed Catches Are Compatible With Fleming. One Other Thing To Consider Between These Two Wide Receiver Freaks is Their “Mind-Boggling” Games With Incredible Stats.

On The First Play of His Highlight Film, Smith-Njigba Ran a Quick Slant, Catches The Quick-Pass and Races, Untouched, 75-Yards For a Touchdown. Then He Ran Two More Quick Slants For 65-Yard and 70-Yard Touchdowns. In a Texas Playoff Game in The Dallas Cowboys Texas Stadium, Smith-Njigba Caught Passes For 325-Yards and 4 Touchdowns and Then in Another Major Playoff UPSET, He Made 6 More Touchdown Pass-Catches.

Fleming (6-2, 200, 4.3, 43, 4.0, 132, 15) Finished His Senior Football Season With 72-Pass-Catches For 1,582-Yards and 22 Touchdowns and Helped Lead His Southern Columbia Tigers To-Win Their 10th Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association 2A State Championship; While Smith-Njigba Finished His Rockwall Career With 5,384-Yards Receiving With a Mind-Blowing 82 Touchdown Pass-Catches in 44 Games.

Image result for Jaxon Smith-Njigba Photos

As a Senior, Smith-Njigba (#11) Had Had An Incredible 109 Pass-Catches For 2,132-Yards, Giving Him a 19.5 Yards Per Pass-Catch Average and a 152.3-Yards Per Game Average and 35 Touchdowns; Along With His 5,384-Yards Pass Receiving and With a Mind-Boggling 82 Touchdowns in 44 Games. Some of His Various Honors and Awards Included All-District MVP, Texas 6-A All State First Team, Texas Football Super Team All-State Team, The All-American Bowl Team, and The Texas Gatorade Player of The Year

Smith-Njigba Was Also One of The Most Incredible Super-Stars in an Unbelievable Story in The Texas 6A Football Playoffs in The 2018 and 2019 Football Season. As a Junior, in 2018, Against Allen High School in a Texas 6A Playoff Game, Smith-Njigba Caught 14 Passes For 267-Yards and 3 Touchdowns, but Rockwall Still Lost in a Devastating Defeat.

Then As a Senior, in 2019, The Same Two Teams Were Facing Each-Other in Another 6A Semi-Finals Playoff Game. This Semi-Finals Game Was Played in The Dallas Cowboys Texas Stadium, as You Can See in The Photo Above. In This Game, Jaxon Led His Rockwall Team To An Incredible 60-59 UPSET Victory Over Allen and in This Game, Smith-Njigba Caught Another 15 Passes For 252-Yards and 5 Touchdowns, Plus a Sixth One on a One-Yard Run.

The Thing To Remember About This Allen High School Football Team is That They Had Already Won The 6A Texas Football State Championship in 2008, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2017. They Had Also Made it To The Semi-Finals Game in The Last Seven Years.

So Here We Are With 1:23 Minutes Left In The Game, and Rockwall Has Just Scored a Touchdown, but They Are Still Losing 59-58. Being Only One-Point Behind, Rockwall Could Kick The Extra Point and Then Go-Into Overtime, but Rockwall Head Coach Rodney Webb Did Not Want To Play Allen in an Overtime. “I Did Not Want To Play a Team Like Allen, Who Had Already Won Five State Championship and Been in The Last Seven Semi-Final Playoff Games. “I Decided To-Go For Two-Points and The Win,” Said Coach Webb.

So Rockwall Went For The Two-Point Conversion, on a Very Special Play, and Scored The Winning Two-Point Conversion and Were Off To The Semi-Finals. On That Particular Two-Point Winning Play, Smith-Njigba Was on The Bench With Severe Cramps After Running “Up-And-Down” The Football Field All Night in Leading Rockwall To Their UPSET Victory. He Also Had Made Two Incredible Pass-Catches For First Downs on The Winning Touchdown Drive.

Obviously, Smith-Njigba Will Play Wide Receiver For The Ohio State Buckeyes. He Probably Will Play a Z-Receiver, The Same Position of Chris Olave and Austin Mack; While Fleming Will Probably Play as an X-Receiver With 2019 Super Freshman Garrett Wilson. Both Fleming and Smith-Njigba Have Already Enrolled in Classes and Will Go Through 2020 Spring Training. By Going Through Spring Training, They Will Obviously Have an Outstanding Head Start in Becoming an Ohio State Super Freshman.

This is Also The Greatest Class of Wide Receivers in The History of The Ohio State Buckeyes. Fleming, Smith-Nijgba, and Gee Scott All Played With Quarterback C.J. Stroud in The Elite 11 7on7 Camp In The Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Frisco, Texas. Along With Mookie Cooper, All Four Receivers Will Become The Greatest Quartet of Wide Receivers Ever Signed By The Ohio State Buckeyes. Stroud Will Use Them To-Win Several Big-10 Championships and Maybe a Buckeye National Championship.

SIDEBAR I: After Evaluating The First Three Ohio State Buckeye Incoming Freshman Recruits, It is Unbelievably Obvious That New Ohio State Buckeye Head Coach Ryan Day Not Only Signed a Top Five Recruiting Class In His First Full-Recruiting Cycle, But Coach Day Looked Like He Evaluated These Football Freaks With a Similar Rating System As My MEARS RATING SYSTEM, Because They All Have Recorded Unbelievably Incredible Super Combine Measurables. Fleming Ran a 4.0 Flat Shuttle, Smith-Njigba Ran a 4.01 Shuttle, Scott Ran a 4.12 Shuttle, and Cooper Ran a 4.07 Shuttle.

Image result for C.J. Stroud Photos

One of The Reasons That I Founded The First National High School Football Recruiting Service in 1979, Was Because of The Unbelievable Politics in The College Football Recruiting Wars. There Were Too Many Incredible Super Freaks That Were Never Able To-Get on Early College Recruiting Lists, Just Like in The Unbelievable Case of This Incredible Ohio State Buckeyes Quarterback C.J. Stroud (#16) in The Photo.

Stroud Had a Great Season as a Junior For Rancho Cucamonga High School in California, but For Some Crazy Political Reason He Was Never Able To Get on Most of The Major Recruiting Lists in The Spring, Until, In The Middle of July Before His Senior Season, And He Was Invited To The Elite 11 7on7 Camp In Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Frisco, TexasThe 2019 Elite 11 7on7 Camp Wrapped-Up Their 7on7 Three-Day Events and The Event Organizers Selected Their 2019 Elite 11 7on7 Camp MVP Award To Their Top Performers.

Super Quarterback C.J. Stroud Was Awarded as The #1 Quarterback After Leading His “Team Savage” To Victory In The 2019 Elite 11 7on7 Championship Game CompetitionIf You Adjust His Completion Percentages After Dropped-Passes, Stroud Had An Incredible 81% Completion Rate of 81% of His Passes. Stroud Also Led The 2019 Elite 11 7on7 Camp In Touchdown Passes With 12 Touchdowns. Stroud  Was Not Just “Dinking” and “Dunking” With His Passes, As He Mixed-Up His Passes, As He Completed Passes all Over The Field With Various Short and Long Pass Routes.

Before This Unbelievable Performance in Dallas Cowboys Stadium, Stroud Was “Flying Under The Recruiting Radar” To Most College Coaches in America and Although “The Various Recruiting Services” Moved Him From a 3-Star To a 4-Star; When He Won This 2019 Elite 11 7on7 Camp MVP Award, “These Various Recruiting Services” Should Have Moved Him To a Deserving 5-Star Rating; But Stroud Still Remained as a Relative Unknown Recruit.

Then, as a Senior, Stroud Completed 265 of 402 of His Passes for 3,878-Yards and an Incredible and Amazing 47 Touchdowns. He Then Received a Scholarship Offer from The Michigan Wolverines, after Michigan Head Football Coach Jim Harbaugh Watched Him Lead Rancho Cucamonga To a 49-14 First Round Playoff Victory over Murrieta Valley. The Ohio State Buckeyes Had Offered in Early October; While The UCLA Bruins Had Offered in November; and The Southern Cal Trojans Offered Him in Early December.

After This Incredible Football Season, With 3,878-Yards Passing And 47 Touchdowns, It Was Not a Difficult Decision For The Sun/Bulletin In Selecting Their Offensive Player of The Year. With This Classic Season of The Ages, Stroud Also Displayed His Incredible Talent and Became One of The Top Two Dropback Quarterbacks in The 2020 Recruiting Class.

Another Incredible Special Intangible of Stroud is His PHD-Level Football IQ, And His Willingness To-Watch More Film Than a Star Wars Junkie and an Unbelievable Work Ethic. In Getting Stroud, The Buckeyes Were Getting a Legitimate Top-100 Talent and One of The Best Passing Quarterbacks.

The Ties Between C.J. Stroud, Dwayne Haskins, and Justin Fields are Very Strong, both On The Field and Off The Field. Intangibly, Stroud Is a Little Lighter Than Coach Day Likes in a Quarterback, But His Height is Exactly Comparable To Both Haskins and Fields. Stroud Also Has Worked Closely with Quarterbacks Coach Quincy Avery, Who has Also Trained Haskins and Fields. All of This Points Toward a A Highly Talented Quarterback Prospect That Will Have a Great Opportunity To Step Into an Ohio State Buckeyes Starting Quarterback Position as a True Sophomore or Redshirt Freshman.

Offensive Center/Guard Luke Wypler (6-3,5, 285, 4.82, 32, 4.62, 114, 30) Is One of Three Ohio State Buckeye Incoming Freshmen That Were Ranked as The #1 Player In Their Respective States.The Other Two Besides Wypler (In Photo) Were Julian Fleming of Pennsylvania and Paris Johnson of Ohio.

Luke Wypler Was One of The First Ohio State 2020 Incoming Recruiting Class To Commit When he Committed in July of 2018. Wypler is a Great Athletic Offensive Lineman Who Has Played Tackle, But Will Move To Either Center or Guard. He Also Has Incredible Measurables For An Offensive Lineman With An Outstanding 4.82 Forty, a 32 Vertical Jump, and a Great 4.62 Pro Shuttle or Better.

Wypler Has Been Compared Favorably With Seattle Seahawks Center Max Unger. He is Very Strong With a 400 Pound Bench Press, a 600-Pound Squat, and a 600-Pound Deadlift. On His Highlight Film, He Is Incredible in Exploding of The Line of Scimmage and Sustaining Blocks Down The Field.

He Has Great Experience a a Three-Year Starter in Playing Against Top, Talented Teams. His Team Faced a lot of Unbelievably Difficult and Talented Competition Against In-State Powers, Including Paramus Catholic, Bergen Catholic, and Don Bosco Prep.

An Unbelievable Fact is That All Four Ohio State Buckeye Freshmen Wide Receiver Freaks, Including Julian Fleming, Jaxon Smith-Nijgba, Gee Scott (82), and Mookie Cooper (In Photo Below); Along With Super Quarterback C.J. Stroud and Super Offensive Tackle Paris Johnson Have Also All Enrolled Early and Will Go Through Spring Training and Be-Ready For The 2020 Football Season. In Fact, 14 Buckeye Freshmen Have Already Enrolled in Buckeye Classes. Slotback Cooper Did Not Play as a Senior, Because of Transferring Problems, But He Was Great as a Junior With 29 Pass-Catches For 869-Yards, 9 Touchdowns, and an Incredible and Eye-Popping 29.96-Yards Per Pass-Catch Average.

This Past Wednesday In February Was National Signing Day Week And It Triggered Some Really Great Memories! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

This Past Wednesday In February Was 
National Signing Day Week And It Triggered Some Really Great Memories!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Former Dallas Cowboys Super Scout Max Emfinger
And Founder Of THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM!

Last Wednesday Was National Signing Day. I Guess that most of You Are Not Even Aware of What This Really Means in The College Recruiting World ! It Simply Means That on This Particular First Wednesday in February is The Day That High School Football Players Sign Their National Letters of Intent with their Favorite College!

I Thought About Writing this Story Last Night, but this morning, I just was not “Fired-Up” to Write it. I Will Honestly Say, However, That at one time in my Life, This National Letter of Intent Day Was One of The Biggest Days of the Year, For Me, In My Life. So when I went to the Store and Heard on the Radio that this was a Huge Day for High School Football Players, at 2:00 P.M. I Went Home and Started Writing This Story.

In 1972, I Got Into Scouting as I Became a Graduate Assistant Coach For College Football Hall of Fame Head Coach Hayden Fry at North Texas State University and Then in 1973, I Was Made The North Texas State Recruiting Coordinator.

Later, in 1974, I Got a Call from Gil Brandt of The Dallas Cowboys and He Told Me That he Had an Opening for a Talent Scout with The Dallas Cowboys and Wanted To Know if I was Interested in Becoming a Dallas Cowboys Talent Scout and Of Course, I DidI Interviewed and was All Set to Take The Job, but Then They Decided not To Hire Another Talent Scout at That Time.

In The Meantime, I had Interviewed with Lanier Business Products To-Get Back Into Sales. Later, I got Another Call from Lanier Business Products and I took Their Job as a Salesman with Lanier Business Products in The Dallas Area as a Word-Processing and Dictating Salesman.

I Then Became One of Their Top Salesmen in The Dallas Area and also in The Entire Country and I was Already Being Groomed To Become a Lanier Sales Manager or a Lanier National Sales Trainer. I also was Awarded Three Lanier Salesman of The Month Awards. in a 10-Month Period. Then, About a Year Later, I was on a Sales Call in Garland, Texas and I Got Another Call from Gil Brandt. “Max, We Are Ready To Hire Another Talent Scout and I Was Wondering if you were still Interested in Becoming a Cowboys Scout?”

Let’s Be Serious Folks! This Was a Call From The Dallas Cowboys! So, I Became a Dallas Cowboys Talent Scout!

SIDEBAR I: One of The Biggest Reasons, In The Past, That The Dallas Cowboys Were Always Successful in The NFL Draft Was Because They Always Had More Information On Every Single Player in The NFL Draft and They Were Always Able To Make More Valid Decisions on Each Player, Based on all of that Accurate and Valid Information. Their Philosophy Was That They Always Wanted More Accurate Information on a Player, so That They Could Make a More Valid Decision as To-Draft Him or Not. In this Computer Age, all of The Current NFL Teams Basically Feel The Same Way.

So I Became a Personal Talent Scout Assistant For NFL Hall of Fame Gil Brandt and Later Was Given The Title of “Super Scout” by The Dallas Cowboys and NFL Hall of Fame Head Coach Tom Landry. 

 

 

The Dallas Cowboys Quick Story!

The Dallas Cowboys Quick Story Quickly Explains How I Was Given The Name Super Scout.

Forty-Five Years Ago, in 1975, when I was a Talent Scout with The Dallas Cowboys, My Boss, Gil Brandt Invited me to Follow Him Down The Hallway and We Went into a Conference Room Where Head Coach Tom Landry and Defensive Coordinator Ernie Stautner Were Waiting to Talk to me.

“Max, we want you To Coordinate a Dallas Cowboys Team Project for us,” said Coach Landry. “We want you To Coordinate the Rating and Ranking of Every Active NFL Football Player and then Color-Code Every Player in the NFL as to Their Rating and Ranking.”

NOTE: Then, I Developed a Huge “Flip-Chart” With Each NFL Team. and a Color-Coded Business-Card With Name of The Player, Height, Weight, and Forty for each NFL Player Was Placed in the “Flip-Chart” Sleeve for Each Position on The Football Field for both The Teams on Offense and Defense of each NFL Team. The Late Legendary NFL Hall of Fame Head Coach Tom Landry and The Late Legendary NFL Hall of Fame Defensive Coordinator Ernie Stautner Used This First Color-Coded Rating System as Info in Their Weekly Scouting Report in Preparation for Their Next game of the Season.

My Main Job with The Dallas Cowboys was to Evaluate, Rate, and Rank College Football Players for The NFL Draft. My Boss and NFL Hall of Fame, Gil Brandt, also Asked me to Evaluate, Rate, and Rank all of The Top Texas High School Football Players for The 1976 Football Recruiting Season and I Make a Texas Top 100 Recruiting List To-Give All The College Football Coaches.

GOLD = NFL All-Pro Player
BLUE = Future or Past All-Pro Player
RED = Average NFL Future

So Then, When Coach Landry asked me to Evaluate, Rate, Rank, and Color-Code Every Football Player in The NFL, I was probably the First and Last Talent Scout on The Planet who was asked to Evaluate High School, College, and Professional NFL Football Players in The Same Football Season. After Finishing This Dallas Cowboys Scouting Project, Coach Landry and Coach Stautner gave me the Title of Super Scout: “Coach Stautner, I Think We Have Us a Real Super Scout!”

Coach Tom Landry, First Super Scout Gil Brandt, and Dallas Cowboys Team Owner Tex Schramm

Then, In 1976, Shortly after Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Tom Landry had given me The Title of Super Scout, I left The Dallas Cowboys, For Monetary  Reasons and went Back To-Work for Lanier Business Products as a Sales Manager in Midland, Texas. I left The Cowboys, Only Because The Job Offer from Lanier Business Products was About Four Times The Amount of Money That I was Making with The Dallas Cowboys.

I Stayed With The Lanier Business Products For About Two Years and then Another Business Products Company, MiCom Business Products, Hired me Away From Lanier and Sent me to Houston, Texas where I Had Previously Married My Current Wife, Ginger, of 48-Years, in 1971. By now, it was 1979 and I was Still Anxious to get back into The Scouting of Players, so Ginger, said: “If you Don’t like What The Sportswriters and Sports Pages are saying, Why Don’t You Just Start Your own Football Recruiting Service.”

So in 1979, I Founded The First High School Football Recruiting Service. In Three Years, I had 12,500 Paid Subscribers to my National High School Football Recruiting Service and I was Doing Recruiting Radio Guest Appearances from Coast to Coast. I also Became The First Independent Football Scout Who Rated and Ranked The National Recruiting Classes in The Country and I Started Appearing on all of The Major TV Sports Talk Shows on either National Signing Days or on The Day after.

Starting in 1983, I Selected The USA Today All-American Team For Three Years and I was a Consultant on The Parade All-American Team. One of Those Three Years, One High School Football Player had Drown in an Accident, in the Summer and Did Not Even Play in The Fall, But He Was Mistakenly Still Selected To The Parade All-American Team Ballot in December Until I Corrected Them and Got His Name Taken-Off The Ballot.

In 1985, I Was Flown To Los Angeles And Picked-Up By a Limousine and Took To The Roy Firestone Office and Then I Appeared on The Roy Firestone Show on ESPN. Also in that Same Year, on National Signing Day, I appeared on 26 Radio Talk Shows and 39 Radio Shows in Two or Three Days, Across The Country, From Coast-To-Coast.

Although It Has Been Around 40-Years, The Politics is Still as Prevalent as Ever Before and Nothing Has Ever Really Changed. Whether You Are a College Football Coach and You Only Have One Scholarship Left To-Give in your Current Recruiting Class or You Are an NFL Team and You Only Have One Draft Choice Left on Your Current NFL Draft Board, There Needs to be a Rating System that You Can Go-To and Based on The Highest Rated Player, would Give you The Very Best Player Available Irregardless of a Position.

By 2001, There Were Several New Recruiting Services That Had “Popped-Up” and They All Were Using The Old Obsolete Five-Star Rating System Method Which Actually Does Not Measure Anything and They Are Still Using The Same Old Obsolete Five-Star Rating System Method.

One year, At The Start of The Spring, One Recruiting Service, And It Is Still Around Today, Had 45 Really Great Wide Receivers and They Were All Rated With a Four-Star Rating, But Then They Arbitrarily Decided That There Only Needed To-Be 25 Four-Star Rating Wide Receiver Recruits.

Everyone Went To-Bed One Night and Then The Next Morning, Everyone Woke-Up, To-Find-Out That There were Only 25 Four-Star Rated Wide Receivers and That 20 Really Great Wide Receiver Recruits Had Just Been Lowered To a Three-Star Recruit-Rating. Someone, Who Was Not Even a Scout and Who Had Never Evaluated any of The 45 Four-Star Rated Wide Receivers had Decided that There Could only be 25 Four-Star Rated Wide Receiver Recruits and He Had Demoted 20 of Them to a Three-Star Recruit.

After 24-Years of This Constant Politics, I Gave-Up an Unusually Very Profitable High School Football Recruiting Service Business, so That I Could Help More High School Football Players That Were “Flying Under The Recruiting Radar” To-Get A Lot More Publicity so That They Could Get a College Football Scholarship.

After The 24-Years, With My National High School Football Recruiting Service and Helping To-Get 1,819 Documented Players a Scholarship, I Thought That I Could Help Even More Players by Getting as Many Players as I Could Get Together, In Action For an Event. I Also Thought That By Hosting a National 7on7 Championship Tournament Was a Great Idea.

During this time, it always Broke-My-Heart when a Mom or Dad would call me in the Middle of December, asking me if I could help their Son to get a Football Scholarship, Knowing that they were probably A Year or Two too late, because of the Politics.

Then in 2001, after making a Very Lucrative Living for My Family, I decided that I needed To-Help more of These “Flying Under-The-Recruiting-Radar” Players and so I Started Working on The First National High School 7on7 National Championship Tournament with The Idea to be able to get a lot of  “Flying Under-The-Recruiting-Radar Players” Together where My Coaches and I Could Evaluate them and help them with a Scholarship. This Worked for Four Years, but after Two Years, the College Coaches Suggested That An All-American Bowl Game With Full Pads and Helmet, So In 2005, I Founded My First Annual All-American Bowl Game Classic.

In 2003, However, As I Had Been Working on my National 7on7 Championship Tournament and although I could not get Any Major Sponsors, I Was Still Going to Take-On The Project, but on April 15, 2003, My 31st Wedding Anniversary, I found myself on The Critical Intensive Care Ward for Six Days. While on that Ward, at The University Hospital in New Orleans, Six of the Eight Patients Died. A lot of Prayer Groups were Praying for me and although I had some Very Critical Moments, I always knew that I had some Major Projects to do for these Under-The-Radar Players, before Being Called-Up.

So then in the Summer of 2003, after having The Two Major Lung Surgeries in April, I Hosted The First Annual 7on7 National Championship on The University of Houston Campus. I also Hosted a National 7on7 Championship Tournament in 2004, 2005, and 2006.

The Biggest Drawback of The 7on7 National Championship Was that The College Coaches Wanted To-See The Hidden Gems in a Game-Type Game With a Highlight Film and so The College Coaches Suggested To Me that I Host a Real All-American Bowl Game, so that They Could Evaluate The “Under The Radar” Players in a Real Game, Playing Against other Talented Players

Since MAJOR SPONSORS Wanted Only The So-Called Top Players, WE HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO GET ANY MAJOR SPONSORSbut since we have helped so many “Under-The-Radar” Players, I have taken The All-American Bowl Game Classic as My Mission-In-Life, and I Have Continued to Host The All-American Bowl Games, with My 13th Game in 2017 and Then After Having Double Knee Replacement, I Plan To Continue With My 2021 14th Annual All-American Bowl Game in January of 2021. 

The Sportswriters and Recruiting Services of Today Are Just Like They Were 20 and 30-Years Ago. They Only Want To-Write Stories About The Top Players that are Rated Fairly or Unfairly as The Best Football Players, While Many of Those Players are Overrated and The Sportswriters Do Not Care About The Super Players That Are Not Being Heavily Recruited.

I Was Immediately Able To-Find Many of  Those “Super Under The Recruiting Radar” Players. Two of Those “Super Under The Recruiting Radar Players” That None of The Various Sportswriters Knew Anything About and Did Not Care About, Played in One of My First 13 All-American Bowl Games. In Fact, Kareem Jackson Came to My Third Annual 2007 All-American Bowl Game With No Offers and He Became One of The #1 Draft Choices in 2010. Alfred Morris was Also Another Player in That Third 2007 All-American Bowl Game and Morris was NFL Rookie of the Year in 2012.

I am an Eternal Optimist and I see things quite differently than most people. I see these Unfortunate Situations as Reversible and Worth Putting Time into Fixing. These Really Great Players, That Are Not on The Major College Coaches Recruiting Lists, Are Many of The Players That I Invite To-Play in My All-American Bowl Game Classic.

2013 ABG Max Emfinger with team

Many of Those Great High School Football Players, from all over America, Hawaii, Australia, British Columbia, Mexico, and Canada are from Low Economic, Low Opportunistic, Minority, and Players of Foreign Descent.

I Evaluate every one of Those Players and Measure Them on Their Own Ability and Not Whether They Are On Some Major Recruiting Lists or Not. Those Players SPEED and STRENGTH MEASURABLES are Very Important, but Their MEARS RATING of All Their Measurables Are The Most Important.

For All of 2004, I Worked on Getting My First Annual 2005 All-American Bowl Game Classic Off of The Ground. I said My Father Seelos Prayer For A Miracle Every Single Day and The Miracle happened on January 13, 2005.

Although I Was Still Hosting a 7on7 National Championship Tournament  in 2004, 2005, and 2006, I Started Working On-Putting Together My First Annual All-American Bowl Game Classic in 2005. 

We Need To-Give a Very Special Thanks To My Beautiful Wife, Ginger, of 48 Years, Who Let Me Do This First Annual Event Without a Single Sponsor. I Also Want To-Thank Ginger For Washing 125 Pair of Game Pants In Cold Water and Letting Them “Hang-Dry” in Our Home For About Two Days, You Could Not See The Insides of Our House, Because All of Those 125 Game Pants Were “Hang-Drying” on All of Our Furniture and All Over The Floor. 

I Have Told All of These Many Great Players That Were “Flying Under The Recruiting Radar” That They Only Needed One Scholarship Offer To-Get Their Education Paid-For and Get To The NFL. Drew Brees, Barry Sanders, Andy Dalton, and Kliff Kingsbury Only Had One Offer and They All Went To New York for The Heisman Trophy Awards Ceremony.

In My Tenth Annual All-American Bowl Game, We Had 106-Players that Played in it and Some of Those Players Were Sensational. In fact, We Had Two Wide Receivers, Two Quarterbacks, and Two More Linebackers that Were as Good as Any of The Players at Their Positions that Would Eventually Sign Their National Letters of Intent With Their Favorite School on National Signing Day.

In The 13 Games, The All-American Bowl Game Classic, Has Helped 1,396 Documented Players To-Get a Football Scholarship and In Fact, in Our Sixth Annual 2010 All-American Bowl Game Classic, We Helped 106 Players Who Did Not Even Play in Our Game, To Receive a Football Scholarship. All of Those Players Were Fabulous Football Players, Who, For Various Reasons, Had Been “Flying Under The Recruiting Radar” With College Coaches.

Then in My Eleventh Annual All-American Bowl Game, We Had 67-Players Who Came To Our First Practice With Absolutely No-Offers and They All Signed Their National Letters of Intent With Their Favorite School on National Signing Day.

There is One Thing That I Tell All Of My Players That I Evaluate!

“Every Single Time that you Compete; You Need to Play as Hard as you can on Every Single Play, Because You Never Know When Someone is Watching-You and Who Is “Looking At You And Your Position For The Perfect Player”  For His College Football TeamSince The College Coaches Cannot Come to An All-American Bowl Game, Then It is Impossible To-Know Who Is  Watching You on Your Highlight Film and Looking at You for his Team.

Our All-American Bowl Games and Top Gun Super Camps and Combines Have Been For The Super High School Football Players Who Have Great Speed and Quickness Measurables; Plus Great Athletic Talent, but for some Reason are “Flying Under The Recruiting Radar” With Most of The College Football Coaches.” – Emfinger

SUPER ELITE TOP GUN CAMP
AND COMBINE
HIGH DRAFT CHOICES

We Had a Tremendously Successful Max Emfinger’s 2006 Sixth Annual Super Elite Top Gun Camp And Combine in Honolulu, Hawaii and I Invited Sam Fehoko (#41) and Several Other Hawaiians To-Play in My Third Annual 2007 All-American Bowl Game Classic.

Strong Offensive Tackle Lee Ziemba and Sam Fehoko Were Both Great Players, in Our Third Annual 2007 All-American Bowl Game Classic, but on Wednesday, after about Five Practices, I Noticed That Ziemba and Fehoko were Hanging-Out Together and Eating Lunch with each other. I could not Resist in Asking what was Going-On. “Sam is The Best Defensive End that I Have Ever Faced,” said Ziemba. “We have had some Great Battles in Practice.”

Then, In The 2007 Max Emfinger All-American Bowl Game Classic, Fehoko Recorded Three Quarterback Sacks and Two Other Tackles For a loss in The West Team Victory. Ziemba Wanted Fehoko To Join Him as his College Teammate as an Auburn Tiger, but Head Football Coach Tommy Tuberville and The Auburn Tigers Did Not Have A Scholarship Available For him.

Lee Ziemba was a Huge Offensive Tackle from Rogers, Arkansas who had over 40 offers and he was one of the Top Offensive Linemen in the Country. Ziemba was Also The Offensive Lineman MVP in The 2007 All-American Bowl Game Classic. Ziemba (6-7, 320, 5.1) Recorded 52 Consecutive Career Starts for The Auburn Tigers; made Consensus First Team College All-American; and played in The 2010-2011 BCS National Championship Game. Ziemba was also Drafted in the Seventh Round of The 2011 NFL Draft by The Carolina Panthers and Ironically Later, Coach Tuberville Coached Sam Fehoko after Becoming The New Head Coach For The Texas Tech Red Raiders.

In 2007, Sam Fehoko was The Defensive End Freak and Game Defensive MVP who had just Recorded 22.5 sacks as a Senior in 2006 at Honolulu Farrington High School. He had a Few Minor Offers, But He was still Flying Under the Recruiting Radar When He Arrived at Our First All-American Bowl Game  Practice, but He Then Signed With The Texas Tech Red Raiders. Then, Sam Fehoko Was On The Texas Tech Red Raiders 2011 Football Guide Cover!

Sam Fehoko Played For My Good Friend and Texas Tech Red Raiders Head Coach Mike Leach and New Mississippi State Head Coach. Fehoko Was Known For His Firey Spirit and Game-Day War Paint That Made The Honolulu Fehoko Family a Lubbock Favorite. Sam Always Seemed To Always Find Where The Football Was and Then Make The Tackle.

The Max Emfinger’s 2010 Tenth Annual Elite Top Gun Camp And Combine Has Also Had Some Very Distinguished Alumnus, Including WR Odell Beckham Jr (#43), QB/ATH Ronald Martin, RB/CB Ameer Abdullah, “The Late” CB Terrence Tusan, RB Julian Hayes (In Photo Below), RB Derrick Milton, WR/CB Denzell Warner, CB Corey Trim, SS Zachary Jackson, DE Cody Horstman, DE Theiren Cockran, MLB Joe Voight, FS Carl Williams, and RB Tyree Bracken; Who Were Not Only Outstanding, but They Were Incredible in The Max Emfinger’s Tenth Annual Top Gun Camp/Combine.

Image result for Julian Hayes Football Photos

Every Single One of Those Players Showed-Up For The First Practice Without a Single Scholarship Offer, but With My Former NFL Players and Coaches Coaching Them, That Quickly Changed. I Also Invited Every One of Them To-Play in My 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic, But Some of Them Were Able To Play in Another All-American Bowl Game in  2011.

There Were Twelve Players, However, Who Did Play in My 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic, Including CB Terrence Tusan (In Photo Below), CB Corey Trim, SS Zachary Jackson, FS/CB Denzell Warner, MLB Joe Voight, FS Carl Williams, DE Cody Horstman, WR Josh Covington, DE Theiren Cockran, OG Justin Bell, OG Earnest Lang, and OC/OG Collins Langley.

Terrence Tusan Was a Star Running Back For The Howard University Bisons and He Was Home For Christmas in 2014 and He Was Horribly Killed on His Holiday-Break from From The Washington D.C. School. I Was With Tusan in Both 2010 in The Top Gun Camp/Combine and Again in 2011 in My 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic, and We Became Really Good Friends.

Image result for Terrence Tusan Photos

I Also Went To See Him Play as a Senior. At Tusan Was a at Cornerback and Coach Bobby Jackson “Nicknamd” Him as “The Little Deion” in Comparing Him To The Famous Deion Sanders. Tusan (5-8, 165, 4.3, 38} was Also a Great Running Back and in The Game That I Went-To, Tusan Was an Unbelievable Freak, as He Rushed For 271-Yards on Only 6 Carries and He Also Scored on Touchdown Runs of 83-Yards, 65-Yards, 30-Yards,and 30-Yards, While Averaging 42.2-Yards Per Carry. What Was Even More Incredible was That This Was All in The First Half and He Did Nor Play in The Second Half.

There Were Also Two Other Players, Including Super QB/ATH Ronald Martin and RB Julian Hayes Who Were Sensational at The Tenth Annual Top Gun Camp/Combine and Were Going To-Play in My 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic, But They Were Injured and Could Not Play. Martin Recorded a 4.0 Flat Shuttle and a 40-Inch Vertical Jump; While Hayes, Weighing 228-Pounds, Recorded a 37-Inch Vertical Jump and Did 38 Bench Press Reps. Hayes Was Also Selected By The Coaches as The Skills MVP of The Combine.

Jeremy Hill (#33) Was a Running Back Freak in High School and Although He Had Already Committed To LSU, I Still Invited Him To My Tenth Annual Top Gun Camp/Combine, Thinking He Might Help Get Some Of His Friends To-Come With Him and They Did. I Went To Redemptorist HS To-See Him Play and He Gained Over 200-Yards and He Was a Freak and One of The Top Backs in The Country. Hill Finished With 2,260-Yards Rushing and an Incredible 36 Touchdowns.

There Were 3 Top NFL Draft Choices at My Tenth Annual Top Gun Camp, Including Odell Beckham, Who Signed With LSU and Drafted #1 and #12 Overall By The New York Giants in The 2014 NFL Draft; Jeremy Hill, Who Also Signed With LSU and Drafted #2 and #55 Overall By The Cincinnati Bengals in The 2014 NFL Draft; and Ameer Abdullah, Who Signed With Nebraska, and Drafted #2 and #54 Overall, By The Detroit Lions in 2015.

1. WR Odell Beckham Jr, 2010 Camp – LSU – NY Giants – 2014 – #1, #12 Overall
2. RB Jeremy Hill, 2010 Camp – LSU – CINCY Bengals – 2014 – #2, #55 Overall
3. RB Ameer Abdullah, 2010 Camp  – NEB – DET Lions – 2015 – #2, #54 Overall
4. QB Greg McElroy, 2005 7on7 MVP – ALA – NY Jets – 2011 – #7, #208 Overall

Greg McElroy (#12) With Head Coach Nick Saban Was a Senior Super-Star at Southlake Carroll High School in Texas. In His Sophomore and Junior Seasons, McElroy Played Behind Chase Daniel, Who Was Later a Heisman Trophy Candidate, Later For The Missouri Tigers. Southlake Carroll Head Football Coach Todd Dodge Brought McElroy and His 7on7 Teammates To My 2005 7on7 National Championship Tournament, and They Won The 7on7 National Championship as McElroy Was a Passing Freak and Won The MVP.

Image result for Greg McElroy Football PhotosThe 7on7 MVP Was in The Summer, But In The Fall of His First Season As a Starter, in 2005, McElroy Passed for 4,636-Yards and 56 Touchdowns and Led His Team To an Incredible 16-0 Record and The Texas 5A Football State Championship. McElroy Then Was Named as The Texas 5A Player of The Year and To Various All-American Teams.

McElroy Was Going To Join Several of His Teammate in My 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic, But The Alabama Crimson Tide Was Playing That Week in a Bowl Game and Invited Him To-Be Their Guest and He Cancelled and He Was Offered an Alabama Crimson Tide Scholarship. His 4,646-Yards Passing Still Ranks Fifth on The All-Time Passing List in Texas.

McElroy Finished His Final Game With The Alabama Crimson Tide With an Alabama School Record 2,987-Yards Passing. McElroy Also Graduated from Alabama in Three Years With a BBA Degree in Marketing. and With A 3.85 GPA. In December 2010, McElroy Obtained a Masters Degree in Sports Management With An Even More Incredible 4.0 GPA. Oh Yeah, In 2009, As a Junior, McElroy Led The Crimson Tide to an Incredible 14-0 Record and The SEC and BCS National Championship

The Incredible Patrick Mahomes And His Incredible Kansas City Chief Teammates: WR Tyreek Hill, TE Travis Kelce, RB Damien Williams, WR Sammy Watkins, FS Tyrann Mathieu, DE Frank Clark, and CB Kendall Fuller! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

The Incredible Patrick Mahomes And
His Incredible
Kansas City Chief Teammates!

Although I Have Not Been Able To Keep-Up With NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP Quarterback Patrick Mahomes (#15) and His Kansas City Chiefs, It is Very Difficult Not Be Impressed With Both Mahomes and His The Kansas City Chief Teammates, in Super Bowl 54, After They Won The Super Bowl. Mahomes is a Fellow Texan and is The Youngest NFL Player To-Win THE NFL MVP and also To-Win The SUPER BOWL 54 PLAYER MVP.

On This Night, Coach Andy Reid (With The Trophy) Won His First SUPER BOWL. Coach Reid Will No-Longer Be The Most Winning NFL Head Football Coach, But Without a SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP With His Name.

Although This Was Not His Best Game of The Year, Mahomes Was “Ceremoniously Crowned” as The SUPER BOWL 54 PLAYER MVP, But It Is Also Very Important To-Give Kansas City Chief Head Football Coach Andy Reid His Long-Awaited SUPER BOWL VICTORY. It Is Also Crucial To-Give Kansas City Chief Head Football Coach Andy Reid The Ultimate Recognition That He Richly Deserves.

After The SUPER BOWL Victory, Former SUPER BOWL PLAYER MVP Terry Bradshaw (On The Left) Interviewed Mahomes and Asked Him What His Next Goal Was and Mahomes Said  “His Next Goal Was To-Go To Disney World,” and Then Another Camera Spotted Mickey and Minnie Mouse Waiving At Him.

The Most Incredible Thing About This SUPER BOWL VICTORY Is The Fact That Are The First NFL Team in History To-Win Three Playoff Games, After Trailing By 10-Points or More and an Incredible Reason is Their 54 SUPER BOWL MVP Quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

In This SUPER BOWL 54 GAME, The San Francisco 49ers Had a Comfortable 20-10 Lead in Over The Chiefs in The Fourth Quarter, but After Shaking-Off Two Earlier Interceptions, Mahomes Took Advantage of Some of His Speedy Teammates and Orchestrated an Unbelievable Come-Back Victory With Three Straight Incredible Touchdown Drives in About Five Minutes.

“We Kept-On Believing,” Mahomes said. “That’s What We Did All of This Postseason. I Felt That If We Were Down by 10, We Were Just Not Playing Our Best Football and The Guys Really Stepped-Up. They Also Believed in Me. I Was Making a Lot of Mistakes Earlier, But We Found a Way To-Win!”

The Score Was 10-10 At Halftime, and I Thought That The Game Was A-Little Boring. After Doing A Lot of Research on The Kansas City Chiefs, I Found-Out That Their Overall Speed Might Be The Best in The NFL, But At First, I Thought That Head Coach Andy Reid Was Just Being A Little Conservative In-Running Mostly Conservative Short-Runs and Short Pass Patterns, But Then When I Looked at The Highlight Film, I Realized That The San Francisco 49ers Secondary Was Doing a Tremendous Job of Pass Coverage.

Things, However, Changed With Five Minutes Left To Play.

There Are Not Very Many Players in The NFL That Are Faster, If Any, Than Kansas City Chiefs Super-Star Slot Receiver Tyreek Hill (#10) and He Also Became One of The Key Turning-Points in The Kansas City Chiefs SUPER BOWL Victory.

Tyreek Hill (5-10, 185, 4.21, 40-5, 4.06, 129, 13) Caught 9 Passes For 105-Yards, but His 44-Yard Catch in The Fourth Quarter Was The Real Turning-Point in The Kansas City Chiefs SUPER BOWL Victory.

On a Third-Down and 15-Yards To Go, and The Kansas City Chiefs, Hopes Looking Very Bleak, Hill Used His 4.2 Speed and 4.06 Quickness and “Juked” Three or Four San Francisco 49er Defenders as He Ran a Speedy Quick Slant, Over The Middle, and Then Cut and Ran a Speedy Go-Pattern.

The San Francisco 49ers Secondary Had Come Into THE SUPER BOWL GAME in Having Only Allowed an Incredible 8 Completions on Passes That Were Thrown 20-Yards Downfield. So, After Being Covered For Most of The Game, I Am Very Sure That Mahomes Was Unbelievably Shocked When He Looked-Up The Field and Saw Hill So-Wide-Open and in The Clear For The Catch and The Crucial First Down.

The Incredible Pass-Coverage Record by The San Francisco 49ers is The Fewest Any NFL Team in 14 Football Seasons. The San Francisco 49ers Were Living-Up To Their Incredible Pass-Defense Stats For The First 53-Minutes of The Game, Until Mahomes and Hill Took Over Control of The Game.

With The Score 20-10 in Favor of The , and With 6:13 Left in The Game, Mahomes Hit Super-Star Tight End Travis Kelce (#87) With a One-Yard Touchdown Pass, To Cut The 49ers Lead To 20-17. In THE SUPER BOWL GAME, Kelce (6-5, 255, 4.48, 36, 4.22, 36, 124) Was Outstanding as He Caught 6 Passes For 43-Yards and His One-Yard Touchdown Catch.

Then, With 2:44 Left In THE SUPER BOWL GAME, Mahomes Hit Running Back Damien Williams (#26) With a Short 5-Yard Pass And Williams Made An Even More Incredible Move As He Reached-Out The Football Over The Pylon For The Five-Yard Touchdown Pass, Giving The Chiefs, A 24-20 Lead With 2:26 Left. The Key-Play on This Crucial 65-Yard Touchdown Drive Was a 38-Yard Pass and Run By Kansas City Chief Super-Star Sammy Watkins.

Watkins (6-1, 211, 4.29, 36, 4.32, 128) Was Also Outstanding in THE SUPER BOWL GAME, As He Grabbed An Incredible 5 Passes For 98-Yards. On This Particular Play, Watkins (#14) Was Unbelievably Incredible and This Play Might Have Been The Key Play of THE SUPER BOWL GAME.

After This Touchdown, The Kansas City Chiefs Defense, Was Sensational After Giving-Up a First Down, The Chiefs Defense, Forced Three Straight Incomplete Passes Before Super-Star Defensive End, Frank Clark (#55) Made a Crucial Quarterback Sack on Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and Then Damien Williams Got Loose on His 38-Yard Touchdown To-Clinch The Win. Clark (6-3, 261, 4.62, 38-5, 4.05, 118, 19) is Another Freak For The  Chiefs

It Is Very Difficult To Not Think That The Key Play in The Kansas City Chiefs SUPER BOWL Victory Was When Quarterback Patrick Mahomes Hit Running Back Damien Williams on The 5-Yard Game-Winning Touchdown Pass, But A Tremendous Amount of Credit Needs To Be Given To Sammy Watkins, on This Play As He Put The Kansas City Chiefs As He Set-Up The Whole Play by Putting The Chiefs In The Red-Zone.

Watkins, The Former Buffalo Bills NFL #1 Draft Choice, Completely Baffled The San Francisco 49ers Super-Star Cornerback Richard Sherman (#25) on This Incredible 38-Yard Pass-And-Run.

 After The Game-Clinching 38-Yard Touchdown Run by Damien Williams, Another Kansas City Chief Super-Star Cornerback, Kendall Fuller (#29) Picked-Off a Desperation Pass by San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and The Game Was Basically Over and With a Kansas City Chiefs SUPER BOWL Victory.

Fuller, Not Only Made a Crucial Game-Sealing Pass Interception Late in The Fourth Quarter in The Kansas City Chiefs SUPER BOWL Victory. But He Also Made Some Other Crucial Plays Late in The 4th Quarter, Including a Critical Pass Deflection and Then The Pass Interception of Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo That Gave The Kansas City Chiefs Their First SUPER BOWL Victory, Since SUPER BOWL IV. Fuller Also Recorded 4 Tackles, Including 3 Solo Tackles, 2 Pass Breakups, and 1 Interception.

Mahomes was Voted as The SUPER BOWL 54 PLAYER MVP, But Damien Williams (#26) Would Probably Have Been Voted The Honor Under Most Other Circumstances as he Rushed For 104-Yards, Including The Game-Clinching 38-Yard Touchdown Run and He Also Caught 4 Passes For Another 29-Yards, Including His 5-Yard Touchdown Catch For Another Touchdown, Giving Him 133-Yards of Total Offense and 2 Touchdowns.

Incredible Kansas City Chiefs Team Speed

In Doing Research on The Kansas City Chiefs, One of The Most Unbelievable and Incredible Things That I Found-Out Was That The Overall Team Speed and Team Quickness of The Kansas City Chief Super-Stars is “Off-The-Chart” Mind-Boggling.  WR TYREEK HILL With a 4.21 Forty and a 4.06 Shuttle Is Probably The Fastest Player in The NFL and QB PATRICK MAHOMES With a 4.62 Forty or Better and an Incredible 4.08 Shuttle is One of The Fastest Quarterbacks and Definitely The Quickest Quarterback in The NFL.

WR SAMMY WATKINS With a 4.29 Forty and a 4.12 Shuttle Joins HILL as One of The Fastest Wide Receivers in The NFL. RB DAMIEN WILLIAMS With a 4.32 Forty and a 4.22 Shuttle is One of The Fastest and Quickest Running Backs in The NFL and DE FRANK CLARK With a 4.62 Forty and an Incredible 4.05 in The Shuttle is one of The Fastest Defensive Ends and Definitely The Quickest Defensive End in The NFL.

Team Captain and TE TRAVIS KELCE (On The Right in Photo) With a 4.48 Forty and a 4.22 Shuttle is One of The Fastest and Quickest Tight Ends in The NFL. Emotional Team Leader TYRANN MATHIEU (#32) With a 4.33 Forty and a 4.14 Shuttle is Also One of The Fastest and Quickest Strong Safeties in The NFL; and DT CHRIS JONES With a 4.76 Forty and a 4.62 Shuttle is One of The Fastest and Quickest Defensive Lineman in The NFL.

Kansas City Chiefs Revamps Defense

In Doing Some More Research on The Kansas City Chiefs, I Also Found-Out That After The 2018 Football Season, Coach Andy Reid Had Decided That He Wanted To Revamp His Kansas City Chiefs Defense Before The 2019 Football Season, But He Was Going To Have To Get a New Defensive Coordinator and Some New Defensive Players.

SIDEBAR I: This Sounds Like The LSU Tigers Head Football Coach Ed Orgeron, Who Decided That He Wanted To Revamp His Offense With a New Passing Spread Offense and New Passing Game Co-Coordinator. How Unbelievably Ironic is it That Coach Ed Orgeron Revamped His Offense and Won THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME; While Coach Andy Reid Won THE SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.

The Kansas City Chiefs, Sweeping-Change Was Going To-Include His New Defensive Coordinator and Coach Steve Spagnuolo (In Photo) and His New Revamped Defensive Coaching Staff With a Defensive 4-3, but One Linebacker Was in The Form of a Nickel-Back Cornerback.

As much as The Kansas City Chiefs Already Had Some Really Great Players, But Their Great Talent Was Vastly Upgraded With Strong Safety Tyrann Mathieu and Right Defensive Rush-End Frank Clark. Also, Before The First Game of The 2019 Football Season, The Kansas City Chiefs, Ironically, Had Eight New Defensive Starters.

While The Kansas City Chiefs Were Unbelievably Feared For Their Incredible Passing Spread Offense and With an MVP Robotic Young Quarterback in Patrick Mahomes Throwing Really Hard Darts and Deep Passes To Incredible Speedsters Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Damien Williams, and Travis Kelce, and Another Army  of Speedsters. The Kansas City Chiefs Were Actually More Productive in 2018, When Mahomes was Voted as The 2018 NFL MVP.

Strong Safety Tyrann Mathieu (#32) Tackles San Francisco 49ers Running Back Emmanuel Sanders (#17) In Super Bowl 54!

Then With The Incredible Addition of Rush-End Frank Clark, Strong Safety Tyrann Mathieu, and Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, It Made The Kansas City Chiefs An Even More Powerful Force To Reckon-With in The 2019 Football Season.

As Predicted, The Kansas City Chiefs Were Incredibly Better On Defense in 2019. In Fact, The Chiefs Gave-Up 421-Points in The 2018 Season and They Only Allowed 308-Points in 2019. The Huge Difference is a Full Touchdown or 7.06-Points Per Game.

Coach Steve Spagnuolo and The Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid Have Worked Together in Philadelphia and Have Been Friends For A Long Time. They Also Both Have The Same Agent and They Have Great Respect For Each Other!

While All of These Positive Factors Were Going-On in 2019, The Kansas City Chiefs Were Still Staring at a Double-Digit Deficit in Their Third Game in Three Postseason Games, but In The SUPER BOWL 54 GAME, However, One of The New Guys, Rush-End Frank Clark (#55) Took-Over The Situation.

“I Went Out There and Told Joe Stanley and George Kittle That They Were Going Home Like Everyone Else!”  Clark Said. Clark Was Confident in The Chiefs and Especially in The Chiefs Defense, With Him Leading The Defense!

As We Have Been Reminiscing About, The Kansas City Chiefs New Defense, We Found-Out That It Was Totally Rebuilt From The Ground-Up a Year Ago. We Also Found-Out Out That This New Defense Had Been Struggling For The First Three Quarters in SUPER BOWL 54 and Trying To-Take-Up The Slack For The Struggling Kansas City Chiefs Super Offense.

Then, in The Crucial Fourth Quarter, This New Kansas City Chiefs Defense Forced The 49ers Into Two Punts, Giving Patrick Mahomes a Great Chance To-Rally The Chiefs To Their First SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP in 50 Years and The 24-Year Old Mahomes Initiated His MVP Robotic Passing Game With 2 Touchdown Passes to Travis Kelce and Damien Williams and Give The Chiefs Offense a 24-20 Lead.

The Kansas City Chiefs Indeed Sent The 49ers Home With a Stunning 31-20 Come-From-Behind Victory and THE SUPER BOWL 54 CHAMPIONSHIP.

The 2020 19th Annual John And Mary Jo Lestini Football Super Free Agent Tryout Camp And Combine Was On Saturday and Sunday!

January 30, 2020

By Super Scout Max Emfinger

The 2020 19th Annual John and Mary Jo Lestini Football Super Free Agent Tryout Camp and Combine Was Held on Saturday and Sunday of January 18 and 19. The Super Camp and Combine is Always Scheduled For The Saturday and Sunday, Just Before all of The NFL Scouts, The CFL Scouts, XFL Scouts, and Other Professional Football Scouts Make Their Way To Mobile, Alabama For The Annual College Football All-American Senior Bowl Game.

On Saturday Night, The Players Were Able To-Meet The Lestini Super Combine Coaches and I was able To-Meet Six of These Players. As all of The Players and Coaches Were Mulling-Around in The Hotel Lobby, some really Impressive Players Walked into The Hampton Hotel Lobby

This Year, We Had Around 20-25 Free Agent Players Who Were Committed To Participate, but Due To The Cold Freezing Weather and a Couple Coaches and Agents That Let Us Down, Only 8 Players Were Able To-Participate This Year. Those Eight Players, However, Were Incredible and Highly Talented.

Coach Andy Bryson (On The Right) is Interviewing Super Freak Quarterback James Tabary. Coach Bryson and His Louisiana Gridiron Football Magazine Staff Video-Taped Every Free Agent in The Lestini Super Combine At The Amazing South Alabama Incredible New Indoor Facilities.

Related imageOur Lestini Super Free Agents Super Combine Had The Great Privilege To-Be Able to Perform Their Talents In This Incredible New Beautiful University of South Alabama Jaguars Indoor Facility!

The Lestini Combine Had Some Incredible Pro-Shuttles!

In The Lestini Super Combine, Coach Ron Estay was The Coordinator of The Most Important Speed Measurable in The Pro-Agility Shuttle and he did another Amazing Job with his Pro-Shuttle Instructions as evidence that an Unbelievable One of Seven Players Broke a “Mind-Boggling” 4.0 Flat and Another Two Outstanding Wide Receiver/Cornerbacks Recorded in The “Unbelievable” 4.1 Pro-Shuttle Area.

The Most Incredible Pro-Shuttle of This 2020 Lestini Super Combine was by #19 WR/CB/KR #19 Marcus Whitfield of The University of Toledo and Tiffin University with Two “Unbelievable” Official Pro-Shuttles of 3.90 and 3.97 and I Timed Him With a 3.96. The Other Two Outstanding Pro-Shuttles Were a 4.12 by #18 Terrell Reginal of Hinds CC And a 4.16 by #20 Markus Conerly.

Two Other Linebackers Also Had Tremendous Pro-Shuttles, Including #22 Issac Claiborne of Prairie View A&M University With a 4.37 Pro-Shuttle and #23 Jacob Joffrion of Louisiana College With Two Official 4.41 Pro-Shuttles. Wide Receiver #24 Jason Thomas Also Ran a Great 4.2 Pro-Shuttle.

The Most Impressive Wide Receiver, Along With #18 Terrell Reginal in The Incredible Passing Drills Was #25 Jacolby Maxwell of Aurora University and Monmouth College and I Timed Him With a 4.36 in The Pro-Shuttle.

The One-On-One Passing- Drills Competition Was Also Unbelievably Incredible!

When We Got Through The Measurables Part of The Lestini Super Combine, We Realized that we had One Great Quarterback in McNeese State Super-Star #17 James Tabary, Three Wide Receivers and Two Defensive Backs and They All Were Outstanding in The One-On-One Passing-Drills CompetitionThe Most Impressive Receivers, Were #18 Terrell Reginal and #25 Jacolby Maxwell.

In Warming-Up, I Was Really Impressed With Both Reginal and Maxwell as They Were About 25 – 30-Yards Away From Tabary and He Was Throwing Some Pretty Hard Passes and They Both Were Making Unbelievable Pass-Catches Away From Their Body and Tucking The Football After The Catch.

Once We Got Through Warming-Up and Getting Ready For Our Passing-Drills, I Also Found-Out That Both Reginal and Maxwell Were Not Only Outstanding, but They Both Were Making Incredible Pass-Catch After Another. On His Very First Pass-Catch, Maxwell Made an Unbelievably Great Go-Pattern Fake and Then Broke A Really Sharp Cut on a Tremendous Out-Pattern. Then, He Made an Incredible Pass-Catch on a Deep Go-Pattern.

For Maxwell, His Next Five Incredible Pass-Catches Included 1. A 10-Yard Quick Slant; 2. A Deep-Out Pattern; 3. A 10-Yard Out-Pattern; 4. A Deep-Out Corner-Pattern; and 5. A Deep-Post-Corner Catch, All Fabulous Pass-Catches.

During All of These Incredible Pass-Catches by Maxwell and Reginal, Super-Star Quarterback Tabary Was Unbelievably Incredible in Hitting Them on  Short Routes, Medium Routes, and Various Deep-Pattern Routes. Also Remember That Both #19 Marcus Whitfield and #20 Markus Conerly Were Doing An Outstanding Job of Defending These Two Wide Receivers.

I Remember #18 Terrell Reginal From The 2018 Lestini Combine, and He Was Also Outstanding in That Combine, Just Like in This One. In The 2018 Lestini Combine, Reginal Made Several Outstanding Pass-Catches during The Combine Passing Drills, Including a Great One-Handed Pass-Catch and at least Two Other Unbelievable Pass-Catches in the Pass Defense Drills.

In This The 2020 Lestini Combine Passing Drill, Reginal Was Also Very Impressive as He Matched Maxwell in Sensational Pass-Catches. In His First Pattern, Reginal Duplicated Maxwell With a Sensational 10-Yard Out-Pattern and Then, His Second Pass-Catch Was a Fabulous 10-Yard Quick Slant, Across The Middle of The Field.

In The Next Five Incredible Pass-Catches For Reginal, They Included 1. A  Deep-Out Pattern; 2. A 10-Yard Out-Pattern; 3. A Deep-Post Corner-Pattern; 4. A 10-Yard Quick Slant Across The Middle; and 5. A Quick-Slant and Go.

By Super Scout Max Emfinger

The 2020 19th Annual John and Mary Jo Lestini Football Super Free Agent Tryout Camp and Combine Was Held on Saturday and Sunday of January 18 and 19. The Super Camp and Combine is Always Scheduled For The Saturday and Sunday, Just Before all of The NFL Scouts, The CFL Scouts, XFL Scouts, and Other Professional Football Scouts Make Their Way To Mobile, Alabama For The Annual College Football All-American Senior Bowl Game.

A Few Years Ago, We Had 56 Free Agent Players To Attend Our Lestini Football Super Free Agent Tryout Camp and Combine and We Also Had 48 Players a Couple of Years Ago. In 2019, We Had 28 Players To Attend Our Lestini Free Agent Tryout Camp and Combine and We Were Able To Help Most All of Them To-Achieve Some of Their Goals of Getting Either Into Professional Football or Back Into The NFL, CFL, XFL, or Some Other Semi-Pro Leagues, Including a Pro League in Europe.

It is Amazing To Me and All of My Lestini Coaching Staff That Literally Thousands of Free Agent Football Players Are Wanting To Get Into Professional Football, But They Do Not Come To The John and Mary Jo Lestini Camp and Combine and Let Us Help Them To Achieve Their Goals.

On Saturday Night, The Players Were Able To-Meet The Lestini Super Combine Coaches and I was able To-Meet Six of These Players. As all of The Players and Coaches Were Mulling-Around in The Hotel Lobby, some really Impressive Players Walked into The Hampton Hotel Lobby

This Year, We Had Around 20-25 Free Agent Players Who Were Committed To Participate, but Due To The Cold Freezing Weather and a Couple Coaches and Agents That Let Us Down, Only 8 Players Were Able To-Participate This Year. Those Eight Players, However, Were Incredible and Highly Talented.

It Was An Incredible Camp, But On Sunday Afternoon, as I Was Driving Back Home To Plaquemine, Louisiana, I Reminisced About Almost The Entire Day of Helping Time The 40 and Pro-Shuttle Speed Measurables With The LSU Tigers Football Hall of Fame and Canadian Football Hall of Famer Ron Estay, Former Canadian Football Player Coach Dick Adams, Coach Andy Bryson, Passing Drills Coach Bill McWhorter, and Coach Marc McCartney.

The Super Combine Coaches!

CAMP CO-DIRECTORS JOHN and MARY JO LESTINI – At Their 19th Annual Lestini Group Free Agent Super Camp and Combine, Camp Directors John L. Lestini Jr and his Various Football Hall of Fame Wife Mary Jo Lestini, Are The Coordinators And Have Been Hosting This Free Agent Super Camp for 19 Years. This Super Camp and Combine Gives Former College and Former Pro Players, who might be “Flying Under The Radar”  an Excellent Opportunity To-Show Our Coaches and Scouts what they can do and help them to get Themselves Into or Back Into The NFL, CFL, World Football League, Europe Football League, Arena Football League, or any Other of The New Developmental Football League which Are Always Starting Play.

COACH RON ESTAY  – Coach Ron Estay was a Former Defensive Lineman for The Edmonton Eskimos of The Canadian Football League.

COACH/DOCTOR MARC McCARTNEY – I Was Very Happy To See Doctor Marc McCartney Again After Helping Us in The Lestini Super Combine Last Year For His First Year. Coach McCartney is a Practicing Chiropractor Doctor and Has His Own McCartney Chiropractic Center in Fort Mill, South Carolina.

He is Also a Great Pre-Game Warm-Up Director and This Year, He Led The Elite Eight Players in Their Pre-Workout Warm-Ups and He Led Them In  Some Unbelievable Stretching Warm-Up Exercises That I Have Never Seen Before and He Had These Players Stretch Some Really Unusual Muscles in Getting Ready To-Run Their Forties, Pro-Shuttle, and Standing Broad Jump. He Also Did a Great Job in Helping With The Various Measurable Timings.

COACH BILL McWHORTER – I Also Enjoyed and Reminisced About Working With Passing Game Drills Coordinator Coach Bill McWhorter. Coach McWhorter Worked With Our Football Super Freak Quarterback #17 James Tabary and Two Football Super Freak Wide Receivers, #25 Jacolby Maxwell and #18 Terrell Reginal and Two Super Freak Defensive Backs in Free Safety Marcus Whitfield and Cornerback Markus Conerly, Trying To Cover Them.

In 1967, In The Guam Rice Bowl Football Military Championship Game, Coach Emfinger Returned The Opening Kickoff 87-Yards for a Touchdown, giving His Naval Air Station Flyers a Quick 7-0 Lead and Then Caught 5 Passes For 138-Yards, Including a One-Handed Pass-Catch, had 3 Punt-Returns For 46-Yards, and Had an Interception-Return For 16-Yards, Giving Him 287-Yards of All-Purpose Offense and The MVP Award Trophy after The Game in The 28-14 Rice Bowl Game Victory.

Although we were able to Use This Beautiful New University Of South Alabama Indoor Facility, The Weather Was Still A Huge Major Factor, because The Temperature was Around 42 Degrees or Colder when we Started The Lestini Super Combine at 10:00 A.M. When we had our Initial Team Meeting in The Center of The Indoor Facility Field, All of These Athletes were Fully-Covered with Long Sleeve Shirts and Coats, Before We Started and I Told Them That They Had To-Put Their Lestini Shirts on The Outside. Amazingly, All of The Players “Disrobed Down” To Their Lestini Free Agent Combine Shirt with Their Player Number on it and We Started The Combine, with Super Doc and Coach McCartney Leading The Free Agent Players in His Incredible and Unbelievable Warm-Up Workout.

Coach Emfinger and Coach McWhorter, However, got to Keep-On Both of Their Classic Professional Football Jackets. Coach Emfinger Had His Dallas Cowboys Wind Breaker on, Underneath His Houston Oilers Classic Winter Coat, because He was Really Cold. Coach McWhorter Had His Pittsburgh Steelers Classic Winter Jacket On, because He Was Also Really Cold.

The Lestini Combine Had Some Incredible Pro-Shuttles!

In The Lestini Super Combine, Coach Ron Estay was The Coordinator of The Most Important Speed Measurable in The Pro-Agility Shuttle and he did another Amazing Job with his Pro-Shuttle Instructions as evidence that an Unbelievable One of Seven Players Broke a “Mind-Boggling” 4.0 Flat and Another Two Outstanding Wide Receiver/Cornerbacks Recorded in The “Unbelievable” 4.1 Pro-Shuttle Area.

The Most Incredible Pro-Shuttle of This 2020 Lestini Super Combine was by #19 WR/CB/KR #19 Marcus Whitfield of The University of Toledo and Tiffin University with Two “Unbelievable” Official Pro-Shuttles of 3.90 and 3.97 and I Timed Him With a 3.96. The Other Two Outstanding Pro-Shuttles Were a 4.12 by #18 Terrell Reginal of Hinds CC And a 4.16 by #20 Markus Conerly.

Two Other Linebackers Also Had Tremendous Pro-Shuttles, Including #22 Issac Claiborne of Prairie View A&M University With a 4.37 Pro-Shuttle and #23 Jacob Joffrion of Louisiana College With Two Official 4.41 Pro-Shuttles. Wide Receiver #24 Jason Thomas Also Ran a Great 4.2 Pro-Shuttle.

The Most Impressive Wide Receiver, Along With #18 Terrell Reginal in The Incredible Passing Drills Was #25 Jacolby Maxwell of Aurora University and Monmouth College and I Timed Him With a 4.36 in The Pro-Shuttle.

The One-On-One Passing- Drills Competition Was Also Unbelievably Incredible!

When We Got Through The Measurables Part of The Lestini Super Combine, We Realized that we had One Great Quarterback in McNeese State Super-Star #17 James Tabary, Three Wide Receivers and Two Defensive Backs and They All Were Outstanding in The One-On-One Passing-Drills CompetitionThe Most Impressive Receivers, Were #18 Terrell Reginal and #25 Jacolby Maxwell.

In Warming-Up, I Was Really Impressed With Both Reginal and Maxwell as They Were About 25 – 30-Yards Away From Tabary and He Was Throwing Some Pretty Hard Passes and They Both Were Making Unbelievable Pass-Catches Away From Their Body and Tucking The Football After The Catch.

Once We Got Through Warming-Up and Getting Ready For Our Passing-Drills, I Also Found-Out That Both Reginal and Maxwell Were Not Only Outstanding, but They Both Were Making Incredible Pass-Catch After Another. On His Very First Pass-Catch, Maxwell Made an Unbelievably Great Go-Pattern Fake and Then Broke A Really Sharp Cut on a Tremendous Out-Pattern. Then, He Made an Incredible Pass-Catch on a Deep Go-Pattern.

For Maxwell, His Next Five Incredible Pass-Catches Included 1. A 10-Yard Quick Slant; 2. A Deep-Out Pattern; 3. A 10-Yard Out-Pattern; 4. A Deep-Out Corner-Pattern; and 5. A Deep-Post-Corner Catch, All Fabulous Pass-Catches.

During All of These Incredible Pass-Catches by Maxwell and Reginal, Super-Star Quarterback Tabary Was Unbelievably Incredible in Hitting Them on  Short Routes, Medium Routes, and Various Deep-Pattern Routes. Also Remember That Both #19 Marcus Whitfield and #20 Markus Conerly Were Doing An Outstanding Job of Defending These Two Wide Receivers.

I Remember #18 Terrell Reginal From The 2018 Lestini Combine, and He Was Also Outstanding in That Combine, Just Like in This One. In The 2018 Lestini Combine, Reginal Made Several Outstanding Pass-Catches during The Combine Passing Drills, Including a Great One-Handed Pass-Catch and at least Two Other Unbelievable Pass-Catches in the Pass Defense Drills.

In This The 2020 Lestini Combine Passing Drill, Reginal Was Also Very Impressive as He Matched Maxwell in Sensational Pass-Catches. In His First Pattern, Reginal Duplicated Maxwell With a Sensational 10-Yard Out-Pattern and Then, His Second Pass-Catch Was a Fabulous 10-Yard Quick Slant, Across The Middle of The Field.

In The Next Five Incredible Pass-Catches For Reginal, They Included 1. A  Deep-Out Pattern; 2. A 10-Yard Out-Pattern; 3. A Deep-Post Corner-Pattern; 4. A 10-Yard Quick Slant Across The Middle; and 5. A Quick-Slant and Go.

The Super Elite Eight Super Combine Freaks!

1. QB James Tabary (6-2, 210, 4.7, 33, 4.48, 106)
2,985 MEARS RATING

On Sunday, At The Lestini Football Super Free Agent Tryout Camp and Combine, a Super Young Passing Quarterback-Freak Named James Tabary (#17) From McNeese State University Was Flat-Outright Sensational in Our Passing Drills in Our Lestini Super Free Agent Camp and Combine

James Tabary is One of The Greatest Quarterbacks That I Have Ever Seen in 48 Years of Scouting Football Players!  I Have Been a Super Scout With The Lestini Football Super Free Agent Tryout Camp and Combine For 12 Years and Tabary is The Greatest Free Agent Quarterback That We Have Ever Seen!

A Couple of Incredible Wide Receivers Also Helped Tabary Look Sensational  as They Made Freaky Pass-Catch After Freaky Pass-Catch in “Putting-On” an Absolute Incredible Display of Pass-Catching Talent With Wide Receivers, Jacolby Maxwell and Terrell Reginal.

Trying To-Cover Those Two Fabulous Receiver-Freaks Were Two Great  Defensive Back-Freaks Named Marcus, Including Free Safety and Cornerback Markus Whitfield and Cornerback Marcus Conerly, Jr and Both Defensive Back-Freaks Did an Outstanding Job, Although Maxwell and Reginal Made A Lot of Incredible Pass Catch After Pass Catch.

After “Putting-On” This Incredible Display of Passing Talent With These  Outstanding Wide Receivers, I Was Able To Chat With Tabary and His Beautiful Mom, Ann, and I Found Out That This Former New Orleans Holy Cross High School Super-Star and McNeese State University Super-Star Was Very Impressive at The New Orleans Saints Rookie Tryout Mini-Camp in May of 2019. Tabary Said That He Was Very Impressed With Both New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton and New Orleans Saints Offensive Coordinator Pete Carmichael.

Image result for James Tabary Photos

In Doing Some More Research on This New Orleans Saints Rookie Tryout Mini-Camp, I Found Out That The New Orleans Saints Offensive Coordinator Pete Carmichael Had Told Tabary That He Thought That He Had Blown His Tryout Mini-Camp Out of The Water and that He Went Way-Above All Expectations on how Everyone Thought That he would do and said That Tabary had an “Absolutely Amazing” Tryout Camp.

The New Orleans Saints Tryout Mini-Camp Opened-Up a Huge Amount of Doors for his Professional Career, Although Tabary Did Not Sign With The New Orleans Saints.

I Believe That Tabary (6-2, 210, 4.72, 33, 4.48, 106) Has a Stronger Arm Than Any of The Three Quarterbacks on The Current New Orleans Saints and He Has an Unbelievable Quick Release and is Amazingly Accurate. New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton Also Had Complemented Tabary Quite a Few Times and Told Him That He Had a Great Feeling For Him.

After A Little More Research, I Found-Out That He Was a Super-Star at Holy Cross High School and After His Senior Season, Tabary Put-Up Some Very Impressive Measurable Stats at The Hudl Super Combine. He Measured 6-2 and 200-Pounds and He Ran An Outstanding 4.67 Forty. Tabary Also Did a Great 33-Inch Vertical Jump, a 106-Inch Standing Broad Jump, and an Incredible 285-Pound Bench Press For a Quarterback and a 410-Pound Squat.

On His Holy Cross Highlight Film, Tabary Was Unbelievably Impressive in Throwing Deep-Passes For Touchdowns. On The Second Play of His Highlight Film, Tabary Rolled-Out, To-His-Left, and Raced 30-Yards For a Touchdown,  While Demonstrating His Outstanding Speed, Quickness, and Agility.  

After Some Even More Research, I Found Out That Tabary Had Set a McNeese State University Single-Season Passing Record in 2016 For Most Completions With 249 and Most Pass Attempts with 415. In That 2016 Season, Tabary was Named as The Southland Conference MVP of The Year and Also The Louisiana Newcomer of the Year. Also in That 2016 Season, Tabary Passed For Five Touchdown Passes Against The #1 Ranked Sam Houston State Team, Tying a McNeese State Single-Game School Record.

Also, In That 2016 Season, Tabary Became The Most Productive McNeese State University Quarterback in McNeese State University School History as He Completed 249 Passes For 3,036-Yards, and 23 Touchdowns, and he was Only 33-Yards From The Single-Season School Record For Passing Yards and He Would Have Easily Broken The Record If The Head Coach Had Not of Pulled-Him in The Last Game, With Plenty of Time To-Break The Record. 

2. WR Terrell Reginal (6-0, 170, 4.43, 38, 3.98, 128)
2,978 MEARS RATING

A Couple of Incredible Wide Receivers Also Helped Super Quarterback James Tabary Look Sensational as They Both Made Unbelievably Freaky Pass-Catch After Freaky Pass-Catch in “Putting-On” an Absolute Incredible Display of Pass-Catching Talent, Including Wide Receivers Terrell Reginal of Hinds Community College and Jacolby Maxwell of Aurora University and Monmouth College.

In The 2020 Lestini Combine, He Ran a 4.6 Forty, But he also Ran a 4.39 at The Hudl Combine and a 4.31 at The 2017 Winnepeg CFL Super Combine, so I Averaged all Three Times and gave him a 4.43 in the Forty.

In The Pro-Shuttle, I Timed Reginal in The 2020 Lestini Combine, With a 3.98 Timing and He Did a 3.99 Pro-Shuttle at The 2017 Winnepeg CFL Super Combine, Along With a Great 38-Inch Vertical Jump. I think Reginal can Break The 4.4 Forty when He is in Shape and The Weather is Not So-Cold. On His Highlight Film, He is The Fastest Player on The Field in Every Game,  Because he Out-Runs Everyone As He is Running For a Touchdown.

3. FS Marcus Whitfield (6-0, 185, 4.4, 38-2, 3.9, 128, 20) 2,976 MEARS RATING 

Although A Couple of Incredible Wide Receivers, Reginal and Maxwell, Helped Super Quarterback Tabary Look Sensational In The Passing Drills of The Lestini Football Passing Drills, Super Free Safety Marcus Whitfield From The University of Toledo and Tiffin University Was Also Unbelievably Impressive in Covering Them In Man-To-Man Coverage.

Whitfield Played His High School Football at Massillon Washington, Ohio and as a Senior, Whitfield was an All-District and All-County Two-Way Player as a Wide Receiver, Cornerback, and Return Man and He Was Selected To Play in The Ohio and Michigan All-Star Game

Whitfield was an Unbelievably Incredible Athlete, Coming-Out of Massillon High School and He Went To a Major College Super Combine With Around 300 Participates and He Recorded The Best Pro-Shuttle With a 3.95. At Another NFL Combine, He Recorded another Incredible 3.96 and then at Our 2020 Lestini Football Super Camp and Combine, He Recorded Two More Incredible Pro-Shuttles With Official Clockings of 3.90 and 3.97. 

To Put These Spectacular Shuttles Into Perspective and The Effect of Just How Incredible These 3.9 Clockings are is To-Put Them Into Perspective as to Exactly What The Standard is For a Cornerback, Free Safety, or a Wide Receiver is For THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM. The NFL Scouts Love The Pro-Agility Shuttle, Because of What it Really Means In Relationship To The Position That The Player Plays on The Football Field.

The Pro-Agility Shuttle (SH) is a Tremendous Test of Agility, Raw Speed, Lateral Quickness, Change of Direction, and Overall Body Coordination. Technique is also very Important in This Test. There Are Very Few Athletes Across The Country Who Have Perfected The Pro-Shuttle Technique and Super Free Safety Marcus Whitfield is One Player, With So-Many Clockings Below a 4.0 Flat, is One Player Who Has Perfected This Technique.

An Athlete Should be able to do this Speed Measurable Test in about Two Tenths of a Second Faster than His Best Forty-Yard Dash Time. It Also Works The Other Way Around in That If The Athlete Runs a 4.0 Flat, in The Pro-Shuttle, Then He Should Be Able To Run a 4.2 Forty.

The Pro-Shuttle Standard For a Free Safety, Wide Receiver, and Cornerback is a 4.6 and The Player Gets 10-Points For Every 10th of a Second Over The Standard, but With a 400-Point Maximum.

Marcus Whitfield, With All of These Pro-Shuttles Under a 4.0 Flat Received The 400-Maximum MEARS Points in This Measurable, but it Also Demonstrates How Agile and How Quick That Whitfield Really is on The Football Field. Since He Was Able To Run So Many Incredibly Fast Pro-Shuttles, it Made Sense That Whitfield Was Able To Run a Faster Forty, So I Did Some More Research and I Found-Out That He Was a Sprinter in High School and Had Recorded an Incredible 10.6 in The 100-Meters and He Also Had Recorded a Great 38-2 Vertical Jump and Also a Great 325 Bench Press. 

Whitfield Was Also a Freak on His High School Highlight Film, As He Made Some Incredible Plays. One of The Most Impressive Plays Was Against Stubenville, on a Punt Return. Whitfield Was on His Own 30-Yard Line and Getting Ready For The Punt-Return. When The Football Came-Down, He Fumbled it Back To The 25-Yard Line, but Then Went and Picked-Up The Football, With About Six Defenders Around Him. Whitfield Then “Juked” All Six of Them and Raced 75-Yards For a Touchdown. Whitfield also Returned Two Other Punts For 65-Yards and 70-Yards.

In His Senior Year of High School Whitfield Recorded 546-Yards of Pass-Catching Yardage and He Also Finished With 997-Yards of Total Offense, Including The Three Punt Returns For a Touchdown. He Also Recorded 36 Tackles From His Cornerback Position. As a Junior, Whitfield Had 32 Pass-Catches For 642-Yards and 6 Touchdowns.

Whitfield Played in 37 Games For The Toledo Rockets as a Free Safety and Cornerback and He Recorded 41 Career Tackles and With a Career-High 10 Tackles Against Northern Illinois.

4. Slot Jacolby Maxwell (5-10, 188, 4.42, 38, 4.22, 126) 2,975 MEARS RATING 

In Warming-Up, I Was Very Impressed With Both Terrell Reginal and Jacolby Maxwell as They Both Were About 25 – 30-Yards Away From Our Super-Star Quarterback James Tabary and Tabary Was Throwing Some Pretty Hard Passes To Reginal and Maxwell And They Were Making Some Unbelievable Pass-Catches Away From Their Body and Then Tucking The Football After The Pass-Catch.

Once We Got Through Warming-Up and Getting Ready For Our Passing-Drills, I Also Found-Out That Both of These Wide Receivers, Reginal and Maxwell Were Not Only Outstanding, but They Both Made Incredible Pass-Catch After Pass-Catch. On His First Pass-Catch, Maxwell Made an Unbelievably Great Go-Pattern Fake and Then Broke A On A Sharp Cut on a Great Out-Pattern. Then, He Made an Incredible Pass-Catch on a Deep Go-Pattern. For Maxwell, His Next Five Incredible Pass-Catches Included 1. A Fabulous 10-Yard Quick Slant; 2. A Fabulous Deep-Out Pattern; 3. A Fabulous 10-Yard Out-Pattern; 4. A Fabulous Deep-Out Corner-Pattern; and 5. A  Fabulous Deep-Post-Corner Catch.

In Doing Some Research on Maxwell, I Was a Little Confused At First, because Maxwell Played Football For Two Teams Named Aurora and He Played For Two Different College Teams. Once I Got it All Straight, Things Became A Lot More Clearer. First of All, Maxwell, Played For Aurora Christian High School and Aurora University and Also Monmouth College. Once I Got it All Straightened-Out, Things Made A Lot More Sense, because The Jacolby Maxwell Story is an Incredible Story.

After All of This Research on Maxwell, I Found One of The Most Incredible Stories in College Football. Now Remember That This Player Was One of The Greatest Wide Receivers at The 2020 Lestini Combine. He Was Also an Incredible Pass-Catcher at Both High Schools and at Both Colleges.

The Jacolby Maxwell Story All Started With His First High School Football Team. He Played His First Two Years, as a Freshman and Sophomore, at Plainfield East High School Before Transferring To Aurora Christian High School For His Junior Season. When Maxwell Got To Aurora Christian HS, He Found-Out That Since His Family Had Not Moved Into The Aurora Christian HS School District, He Would Have To “Sit-Out” His Junior Football Season and Obviously, Since He Was Not Able To Play, as a Junior, He Was NEVER Able To Get on Any College Football Recruiting Lists.

Then, as a Senior at Aurora Christian, Maxwell Was Sensational as He Made Pass-Catches For 1,100-Yards, but Not Having Played as a Junior and Not Getting on Any Recruiting Lists, his College Football Recruiting was Limited!

“If Maxwell Had Been With Us All Four Years, There is No Question That He Would Have Been a Division I Player,” Said Aurora Head Coach Don Beebe!

Maxwell Got a Scholarship Offer To Play For Monmouth College and He was Outstanding For Three Years in 2116, 2117, and 2118, Including 59 Catches For 821-Yards and 12 Touchdowns in 2118. Maxwell Had a Great 2018 Junior Season at Monmouth College, and He Thought That His College Football Career Was Over, but With A Great Christian Background, Maxwell Was Shocked When He Realized That The Lord Had a Different Plan For Him.

As His Monmouth College Graduation-Day Was Approaching, He Became Aware That He Had Not Used All of His College Eligibility and His College Football Days Might Not Be Over. As a Wide Receiver for Monmouth College in football, Maxwell had Transferred from an NCAA Division II School in Ohio where he Did Not Use Any of His Eligibility.

As Maxwell Was Looking Into Graduate Schools To Continue To Pursue His MBA Masters Degree, He Found-Out That One of His Former Aurora Christian HS Coaches, Don Beebe, had Just Become The Head Football Coach at Aurora University and It was a “Maxwell-Made In Heaven” Happening.

Four Games into The Aurora University Season, Maxwell Emerged as The Favorite Pass-Catcher For Aurora Super Quarterback Gavin Zimbelman, who Was Passing at an Incredible Record-Setting Pace. Maxwell Helped Aurora University To The 2019 NACC Championship With an Incredible Pass-Catching Performance in The Spartans 70-14 Win Over Lakeland, as He Recorded 9 Pass-Catches For 151-Yards and 4 Touchdowns. The 4 Touchdowns Tied his Own Aurora University Single-Game Record.

Maxwell Finished The Season With 73 Pass-Catches For 1,170-Yards and 23 Touchdowns, Which Was #1 in The Country in Division III Football. His 4 Touchdowns Also Tied a Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Single-Game Record, Which He Also Had Tied Earlier.

  2,974 MEARS RATING

At This 2020 Lestini Super Combine There Were Some Incredible Pro-Shuttles by #19 WR/CB/KR #19 Marcus Whitfield of The University of Toledo and Tiffin University with Two “Unbelievable” Official Pro-Shuttles of 3.90 and 3.97 and The Other Two Outstanding Pro-Shuttles Were a 4.12 by #18 WR Terrell Reginal of Hinds Community College And a 4.16 by #20 CB/WR Markus Conerly of The Bayou LaCombe Simi-Pro Cardinals Team.

With an Incredible 4.16 Pro-Shuttle, It Is Obvious That Conerly is a Lot Faster Than His 4.6 and 4.62 Times That He Recorded at The 2020 Lestini Combine and Markus Conerly Was Really Outstanding, Along With Whitfield in The Pass Defense Drills!

“Touchdown Markus Conerly!” If you were at a Bayou LaCombe Simi-Pro Cardinals Game Last Football Season, You Probably Would Have Heard This Phrase. With His Unbelievable Shifty and Speedy Punt and Kickoff Returns and Pick-6 Touchdowns, Conerly Was Incredible. Coach Andy Bryson Was Also one of His Bayou LaCombe Simi-Pro Coaches.

The Former Franklinton, Louisiana High School Demon Star Was Also a Super-Star For The Semi-Pro Cardinals As He Made Some Unbelievably Incredible Plays in Helping Them To Their Winning 2019 Football Season. In One Game, Conerly Returned an Interception 98-Yards For a Touchdown.

I Timed Conerly With a 4.6 Forty and He Was Given an Official 4.62 Forty. Although He Only Ran a 4.6 Forty, With This Incredible 98-Yard Punt Return For a Touchdown is a Tremendous Reason To Believe That Conerly is a 4.33 or Better Forty Football Player and So I Did Some More Research on Him.

At The Hudl Super Combine, Conerly Ran a 4.4 Forty, Did a 38-Inch Vertical Jump, and a 4.2 Pro-Shuttle. At Another NFL Combine, He Ran a 4.36 Forty, Did another 38-Inch Vertical Jump, Ran a 4.12 Pro-Shuttle, and did a 126-Inch Standing Broad Jump, so I Averaged His Lestini Combine 4.6 Forty, His Hudl Super Combine 4,4 Forty, and His 4.36 NFL Combine Forty. That Average Comes-Out To-Be a 4.45, but on His 98-Yard Return, He is a 4.33 Guy, And The Fastest Player on The Football Field, and So I Gave Him An Official 4.33 Forty. 

Jacolby Maxwell

6. ILB Jacob Joffrion (5-10, 220, 4.6, 34, 4.32, 114, 30) 2,970 MEARS RATING 

In The 2020 Lestini Football Super Free Agent Tryout Camp and Combine, #23 Jacob Joffrion of Louisiana College Had Two Tremendous Pro-Shuttles, Which Included Two Official 4.41 Pro-Shuttles. 

The Temperature Was Around 42 Degrees or Colder when we Started The Lestini Super Combine at 10:00 A.M. on Sunday Morning. I Know That The Cold Weather Effected These Super-Star Athletes in Their Efforts To Get Into Professional Football.

Jacob Joffrion Was, However, Very Impressive in The Lestini Super Combine Drills, But He Only Ran an Official 4.9 Forty, at The Lestini Combine, Although I Timed Him With a 4.82 Forty. In The Hudl Super Combine, Joffrion Had Clocked a 4.55 Forty and in Another Super Combine, He Clocked a 4.58 Forty, and So I Averaged All Four Forties and it Came-Out To-Be a 4.71, But on His High School and College Highlight Film, He is Running a 4.6 and So I Gave Him an Official 4.6 Forty.

At The Hudl Super Combine, Joffrion Recorded Some Incredible Strength Measurables, With An Unbelievably Incredible 405 Bench Press, a 630-Pound Squat, and a 520-Pound Dead-Lift. The Muscular Joffrion Also Recorded a 4.32 Shuttle and 32-Inch Vertical Jump.

7. ILB Isaac Claiborne (6-0, 220, 4.61, 35, 4.27, 114, 20) 2,968 MEARS RATING

Both Linebackers at The Lestini Super Combine, Had Tremendous Pro-Shuttles, Including #22 Issac Claiborne (#46) of Humble Summer Creek High School in Texas and Prairie View A&M University With an Official 4.37 Pro-Shuttle, However I Timed Him With an Ever Better 4.27 Clocking; While Jacob Joffrion Had Two Official 4.41 Pro-Shuttles. Since The MEARS RATING Standard For an Inside Linebacker is a 4.7, Joffrion Received 380-Points and Claiborne Received The Maximum 400-Points.

Claiborne Looks A Lot Faster Than a 4.68 on His Highlight Film. In Researching Claiborne, I Found-Out That He Had Recorded a Legit 4.6 at The Hudl Super Combine and at Another NFL Super Combine, He Recorded an Outstanding 4.56 and So I Averaged The Three Forty Times and Came-Up With an Excellent 4.61 For an Inside Linebacker.

Claiborne Did a 112-Inch in The Standing Broad Jump, at The Lestini Super Combine, but He Also Did a 116 SBJ at The NFL Super Combine and I Averaged The Two Jumps and Gave Him an Official 114-Inch Standing Broad Jump. In The Other Jumping Measurable, Claiborne Recorded a 33-Inch Vertical Jump at The Hudl Super Combine and a 37-Inch Vertical Jump at The NFL Super Combine and So I Gave Him an Official 35-Inch Vertical Jump. Since The MEARS RATING Standard For an Inside Linebacker is a 28-Inch Vertical Jump, Claiborne Received 140-Points on His Vertical Jump.

In 2018, at Prairie View A&M University, Claiborne Recorded 71-Tackles, Including 28 Solo Tackles, 9 Tackles For a Loss, 2 Sacks, 1 Forced Fumble, and 1 Recovered Fumble. On One Incredible Play, There Was a Huge “Pile-Up” of Players in The Middle of The Field and Then All-of-a-Sudden, Claiborne Came-Out of “The-Pile-Up” With The Football and He Was Headed Toward The End-Zone. After About Four or Five Steps, a Defender Came-Out of “The-Pile-Up” and Pulled Him Around and He was “Running-Backward” For About Five or Six More Steps, Demonstrating His Agility and Athleticism. 

8. WR Jason Thomas (6-3, 205, 4.56, 36, 4.38, 122, 20)
2,965 MEARS RATING

Jason Thomas is an Outstanding Athletic Wide Receiver and He is Incredible on Some of His Highlight Film, but He Was “A Little Under The Weather” at The 2020 Lestini Super Combine, and He Was Not Able To “Fully Demonstrate” His Outstanding Athleticism.

On His Highlight Film at Harvey West Jefferson High School in Louisiana and at Avila University in Kansas City, Missouri, He Was Outstanding, but at The Lestini Super Combine, He Chose Not To Participate in The Passing Drills.

Thomas However, Was Able To Participate in The Measurables and He Recorded an Official 4.42 Pro-Shuttle, Although I Timed-Him With a 4.41. His Best Official Forty at The Lestini Super Combine, Was a 4.78, but I Clocked him With a 4.76. Since Thomas Did Not Participate in The 2020 Lestini Passing Drills, I Believe That He Was Limited With a Slight Muscle-Pull Which Also Confined His Speed Measurables.

At The Hudl Super Combine in 2014, Thomas Ran an Outstanding 4.5 While He Was 6-3 and 195. That Forty and His 2014 Highlight Film With The West Jefferson High School Team Was Unbelievably Impressive. Also, On One of His Highlight Films on The Hudl Highlight Films Was of Him as an Incredibly Outstanding Rush Defensive End. He Also Recorded a 250-Pound Bench Press, a 350-Pound Squat, and a 300-Pound Dead-Lift. I Was Very Impressed With His Rush-End Highlights, but His Offensive Highlights Were Incredible.

After About Five Wide Receiver Highlight Plays, I Had Seen Enough. On His First Highlight, Against King, Thomas Ran a Deep-Corner Pattern, Caught The Football at About The 18-Yard Line, and Then Pulled Away From Three Defenders and Raced into The End-Zone. On His Second Highlight Play Against Higgins, Thomas Caught a 10-Yard Slant, Across The Middle, and Out-Raced Four Defenders into The End-Zone For a 55-Yard Touchdown.

Against Archbishop Shaw, Thomas Caught a Go-Pattern and Raced 60-Yards, before Three Defenders Dragged Him Down at The 15-Yard Line. Against Lutcher, He Caught a 56-Yard Deep-Pattern Before Four Defenders Pulled Him Down on The 5-Yard Line. And Finally, Against Cox, Thomas Caught a 33-Yard Pass and Dragged Two Defenders Across The Goal-Line.

One of The Most Impressive Things About Thomas is That He Has The Great Hands and Great Speed, but He Also Has The Physical Mentality of a Rush-End. I Have Never Seen a Wide Receiver Drag Defenders Like Thomas.

THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM 

When I was with The Dallas Cowboys in 1975-77, we had a Rating System and when I left The Cowboys in 1977, I developed a similar Rating System that we had used in the 1976 and 1977 NFL Draft. The 1977 NFL Draft was The Tony Dorsett Draft and we used this Rating System to conclude that Dorsett was The Dallas Cowboys #1 Player in that 1977 NFL Draft.

Although I developed My Rating System, when I left The Dallas Cowboys, I Started Using The Rating System in 2001, when NIKE Sports developed a similar Rating System and called it The SPARQ RATING SYSTEM. I Brought  my Rating System and I called it The MAX EMFINGER ASSET RATING SYSTEM or MEARS RATING.

ASSET stands for Agility, Strength, Stamina, Explosiveness, and Technique. These are The Essential tools for a Superior Athletic Performance in any Competitive Sport or Event. This new MEARS RATING SYSTEM or a similar Rating System, identifies overall Athletic Ability, and it can be used by Top College and Pro Coaches around the country as an initial indicator of the Athletic Potential on the Football Field.

Whether you are a College Football Coach and you only have One Scholarship Left to give in your current Recruiting Class or you are an NFL Team and you only have only One Draft Choice Left on your Current NFL Draft Board, there needs to be a Rating System that you can go to and based on the highest rated player, would give you the very best player available irregardless of position.

By 2001, all of the other High School Football Recruiting Services were using the Five-Star Rating System Method which does not Measure Anything. One year, at the start of The Spring, they had 45 Wide Receivers that were Rated a Four-Star. We went to bed one night and the next morning, they only had 25 Wide Receivers. Someone in The Scouting Service had decided that there could only be 25 Four-Star Wide Receivers in The Entire Country and he had demoted 20 of them to a Three-Star Rating.

My MEARS RATING SYSTEM or a similar type Rating System is very important for The NFL Scouts, and The NFL Scouting Combine is the first time that “Accurate Numbers” are recorded on these players. It’s easy to say someone can run a 4.4 or a 4.3 in The Forty, but before an Accurate Hand-Held Timing by a Professional Scout or either by a slower, but Accurate Laser Timing is done, most Forty Times are less than Accurate. Technique is also very important and that is why College Football Players entering The NFL Draft will hire a Sports Trainer to train and teach them how to do a Proper Vertical Jump, Pro-Agility Shuttle, and a Standing Broad Jump.

In this Lestini Super Free Agent Combine, The Lestini Group Coaches Tested all of These Free Agent Players with Two Speed Measurables, including Two Forties and Two Pro-Agility Shuttles; plus Two Standing Broad Jumps.

Quarterbacks, Offensive Linemen, and Kickers are always going to be Very Difficult to Measure, because they do Extremely Poor at a Super Combine, so These Three Positions must Be Evaluated very carefully on film and in person and then their MEARS RATING will need to be Estimated and Given a MEARS RATING that their Evaluation Deserves.

You can get a very good idea about a High School Football Player if he participates in a Legitimate Super Football Combine, but many High School Football Players do not get a chance to participate in a Super Football Camp or Combine. If a High School Football Player is being recruited by 40 D-1 Schools, then you have to assume that he is an outstanding Football Player, but how can you give this player a MEARS RATING if he does not have Valid Measurables? The answer is Very Simple! You either have to make-up or approximate his Measurables based upon his Game Film Evaluation or Actual Game Evaluationgiving him The Maximum Points on most of his  Measurables for his Position.

Most High School and College Football Players do not even know what their Measurables are and you would think that they would, but they do not. Many times, a High School or College Football Player will list his best Forty Time as a 4.8 and then twenty minutes later run a 4.6 or Better. You must keep in mind that with a little instruction and training, most High School and College Football Players can improve on their Speed Measurables by Two and Three Tenth of a Second and on their Agility and Distance Measurables by as much as Six to Eight Inches.

Quarterback-Freak James Tabary Was Flat-Outright Sensational At Our 19th Annual 2020 Lestini Free Agent Passing Drills Camp and Combine! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

The One-On-One Passing- Drills Competition Was Unbelievably Incredible!

Image result for James Tabary Photos

When We Got Through The Measurables Part of The Lestini Super Camp and Combine, We Realized that we had One Great Quarterback in McNeese State Super-Star James Tabary, Three Wide Receivers and Two Defensive Backs and They All Were Outstanding in The One-On-One Passing-Drills CompetitionThe Most Impressive Receivers, Were #18 Terrell Reginal and #25 Jacolby Maxwell and I Timed Maxwell With a 4.36 Pro-Shuttle.

In Warming-Up, I Was Very Impressed With Both Reginal and Maxwell as They Were About 25 – 30-Yards Away From Tabary and He Was Throwing Some Pretty Hard Passes and They Both Were Making Unbelievable Pass-Catches Away From Their Body and Tucking The Football After Pass-Catch.

Once We Got Through Warming-Up and Getting Ready For Our Passing-Drills, I Found-Out That Both Wide Receivers, Reginal and Maxwell Were Not Only Outstanding, but They Both Were Making Incredible Pass-Catch After Another. On His Very First Pass-Catch, Maxwell Made an Unbelievably Great Go-Pattern Fake and Then Broke A Really Sharp Cut on a Tremendous Out-Pattern. Then, He Made an Incredible Pass-Catch on a Deep Go-Pattern.

For Maxwell, His Next Five Incredible Pass-Catches Included 1. A 10-Yard Quick Slant; 2. A Deep-Out Pattern; 3. A 10-Yard Out-Pattern; 4. A Deep-Out Corner-Pattern; and 5. A Deep-Post-Corner Catch, All Fabulous Pass-Catches.

During All of These Incredible Pass-Catches by Maxwell and Reginal, Super-Star Quarterback Tabary Was Unbelievably Incredible in Hitting Them on  Short Routes, Medium Routes, and Various Deep-Pattern Routes. Also Remember That Both #19 Marcus Whitfield and #20 Markus Conerly Were Doing An Outstanding Job of Defending These Two Wide Receivers.

I Remember #18 Terrell Reginal From The 2018 Lestini Combine, and He Was Also Outstanding in That Combine, Just Like in This One. In The 2018 Lestini Combine, Reginal Made Several Outstanding Pass-Catches during The Combine Passing Drills, Including a Great One-Handed Pass-Catch and at least Two Other Unbelievable Pass-Catches in the Pass Defense Drills.

In This The 2020 Lestini Combine Passing Drill, Reginal Was Also Very Impressive as He Matched Maxwell in Sensational Pass-Catches. In His First Pattern, Reginal Duplicated Maxwell With a Sensational 10-Yard Out-Pattern and Then, His Second Pass-Catch Was a Fabulous 10-Yard Quick Slant, Across The Middle of The Field.

In The Next Five Incredible Pass-Catches For Reginal, They Included 1. A  Deep-Out Pattern; 2. A 10-Yard Out-Pattern; 3. A Deep-Post Corner-Pattern; 4. A 10-Yard Quick Slant Across The Middle; and 5. A Quick-Slant and Go.

The Super Elite Combine Quarterback Freak!

2,985 MEARS RATING

On Sunday, At The Lestini Football Super Free Agent Tryout Camp and Combine, a Super Young Passing Quarterback-Freak Named James Tabary (#12) From McNeese State University Was Flat-Outright Sensational in Our Passing Drills in Our Camp and Combine

James Tabary is One of The Greatest Quarterbacks That I Have Ever Seen in 48 Years of Scouting Football Players!  I Have Been a Super Scout With The Lestini Football Super Free Agent Tryout Camp and Combine For 12 Years and Tabary is The Greatest Free Agent Quarterback That We Have Seen!

A Couple of Incredible Wide Receivers Also Helped Tabary Look Sensational  as They Made Freaky Pass-Catch After Freaky Pass-Catch in “Putting-On” an Absolute Incredible Display of Pass-Catching Talent With Wide Receivers, Jacolby Maxwell and Terrell Reginal.

Trying To-Cover Those Two Fabulous Receiver-Freaks Were Two Great  Defensive Back-Freaks Named Marcus, Including Free Safety and Cornerback Markus Whitfield and Cornerback Marcus Conerly, Jr and Both Defensive Back-Freaks Did an Outstanding Job, Although Maxwell and Reginal Made A Lot of Incredible Pass Catch After Pass Catch.

After “Putting-On” an Incredible Display of Passing Talent With a Couple of Outstanding Wide Receivers, I Was Able To Chat With Tabary and His Beautiful Mom, Ann, and I Found Out That This Former 2014 New Orleans Holy Cross High School Super-Star and McNeese State University Super-Star Was Very Impressive at The New Orleans Saints Rookie Tryout Mini-Camp in May of 2019. Tabary Said That He Was Very Impressed With Both New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton and New Orleans Saints Offensive Coordinator Pete Carmichael.

In Doing Some More Research on This New Orleans Saints Rookie Tryout Mini-Camp, I Found Out That The New Orleans Saints Offensive Coordinator Pete Carmichael Had Told Tabary (#12) That He Thought That He Had Blown His Tryout Mini-Camp Out of The Water and that He Went Way-Above All Expectations on how Everyone Thought That he would do and said That Tabary had an “Absolutely Amazing” Tryout Camp.

This The New Orleans Saints Tryout Mini-Camp Opened-Up a Huge Amount of Doors for his Professional Career, Although Tabary Did Not Sign With The New Orleans Saints.

I Believe That Tabary (6-2, 210, 4.7, 33, 4.46, 106) Has a Stronger Arm Than Any of The Three Quarterbacks on The Current Saints and He Has an Unbelievable Quick Release and He is Amazingly Accurate. New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton Had Also Complemented Tabary Quite a Few Times and Told Him That He Had a Great Feeling For Him.

After A Little Research, I Fond-Out That He Was a Super-Star at Holy Cross High School and After His Senior Season, Tabary Put-Up Some Very Impressive Measurable Stats at The Hudl Super Combine. He Measured 6-2 and 200-Pounds and Ran An Outstanding 4.67 Forty. Tabary Also Did a Great 33-Inch Vertical Jump, a 106-Inch Standing Broad Jump, an Incredible 285-Pound Bench Press For a Quarterback, and a 410-Pound Squat.

On His Holy Cross Highlight Film, Tabary Was Unbelievably Impressive in Throwing Deep-Passes For Touchdowns. On The Second Play of His Highlight Film, Tabary Rolled-Out, To-His-Left, and Raced 30-Yards For a Touchdown,  While Demonstrating His Outstanding Speed, Quickness, and Agility.  

After Some More Research, I Found Out That Tabary Had Set a McNeese State University Single-Season Passing Records in 2016 For Most Completions With 249 and Most Pass Attempts with 415. In That 2016 Season, Tabary was Named as The Southland Conference MVP of The Year and Also The Louisiana Newcomer of the Year. Also in That 2016 Season, Tabary Passed For Five Touchdown Passes Against The #1 Ranked Sam Houston State Team, Tying a McNeese State Single-Game School Record.

In That 2016 Season, Tabary Became The Most Productive McNeese State University Quarterback in McNeese State University School History as He Completed 249 Passes For 3,036-Yards, and 23 Touchdowns, but he was Only 33-Yards Short of The Single-Season School Record For Passing Yards and He Would Have Easily Broken That Record If The Head Coach Had Not of Pulled-Him in The Last Game, With Plenty of Time To-Break The Record.

SIDEBAR I: This is an Incredible Re-Published Story About Quarterback Joe Burrow and The LSU Tiger Wide Receivers That Was Originally Published on September 11, 2019!

 

The LSU Tiger All-Americans

Every Year, Since 1935, An All-American College Football Team Has Been Selected By Various Organizations That Recognizes The Most Outstanding  Football Players in The Country at Every Position on Offense and Defense.

The LSU Tigers Football Team Has Had 34 Football Players To-Be Recognized as a Consensus All-American Football Player, with nine of them being Unanimous Selections.

Four LSU Tiger Football Players Were Selected Unanimously Twice To The All-American Football Team, Including Offensive End Gaynell Charles “Gus” Tinsley in 1935 and 1936; Running Back Billy Cannon in 1958 and 1959; and Running Back Charles Alexander in 1977 and 1978. Defensive Back Tommy Casanova in 1969, 1970, and 1971 Was The Only LSU Tigers Football Player To Be Selected Three Times. Bert Jones, in 1972, Was The Only LSU Tiger All-American Quarterback. 

Out of All of These LSU Tiger All-Americans, where are The LSU Tiger Quarterbacks? Bert Jones is The Only LSU Tiger All-American Quarterback. For About 13 or 14 Years, I Have Been Scouting and Evaluating The LSU Tigers and The LSU Tiger Fans have been told in Every LSU Tigers Spring Training that The LSU Tigers Were Going To Unleash a Fabulous New Offense, but Then in The Fall, That New Offense Has Never Materialized, because The LSU Tiger Head Football Coaches, In-The-Past, Were Always Limiting The LSU Tiger Quarterbacks.

I Also Have Been Watching and Evaluating Those LSU Tiger Quarterbacks For About 30 Years and The LSU Tigers Have Never Had a Quarterback Like Their New Quarterback, Joe Burrow. Burrow (#9) is The Most Impressive LSU Tiger Quarterback in This Decade After The LSU Quarterbacks Were Always Playing in a Poorly Controlled and Poorly Coached Passing Game and The LSU Tiger Running Backs Always Took-Over.

Burrow (6-4, 216, 4.6) Started all 13 Games in 2018, Passing for 2,894-Yards with 16 Touchdown Passes and He also Rushed For Another 399-Yards and 7 Touchdowns, Giving Him 3,293-Yards Of Total Offense and 23 Touchdowns. His 7 Rushing Touchdowns Tied The LSU Tiger Quarterback All-Time Record For A Quarterback

In That 2018 Football Season, The LSU Tigers Were Predicted To-Finish in Fifth Place in The Southeast Conference Western Division, but with Burrow, at The Helm, The LSU Tigers Finished with their First 10-Win Season since 2013 and The LSU Tigers Won their First New Year’s Six Bowl Game of The Playoff Period as The LSU Tigers and The Fiesta Bowl Offensive MVP Quarterback Joe Burrow Defeated The Undefeated Central Florida 40-32!

LSU Defensive Tackle Rashard Lawrence (On The Right In Photo) Was Awarded The Fiesta Bowl Defensive MVP After He Recorded An Unbelievably Fantastic Game with Five Tackles and two Quarterback Sacks.  LSU Tiger Head Coach Ed Orgeron (In The Middle In Photo).

In The Off-Season, LSU Head Football Coach Ed Orgeron Went To LSU Tigers Offensive Coordinator, and a Long-Time Friend of Mine, Steve Ensminger and Told Him: “We Have Got To-Go To THE SPREAD-OPTION OFFENSE.”

Both LSU Coaches Agreed That They Needed To-Get A Coach Who Knew All of The OPTIONS For This Spread-Option Offense and Let Him Put The Spread-Option Offense Into The LSU Tiger Offensive System and Playbook.

In The 2019 Season, With The New Explosive LSU Tiger Run/Pass Option Offense, Will Be Completely Different, Because With This New LSU Offense, It Will Give Joe Burrow an “Unbelievable Opportunity” To-Pass for Over 400-Yards in Every Single Game, Including The First Two or Three Games of The Season Which Would Put His Name on The Heisman Trophy List. The New LSU Tiger Run/Pass Offense, With as Many as Four or Five Wide Receivers in The Game at The Same Time Would Also Guarantee Joe Burrow and The New LSU Spread Offense of Keeping Pressure on The Defenses and Guarantee The “Opportunity” For Burrow To-Win The Heisman Trophy Award.

Burrow Will Get at Least Two Chances To-Compete Against Two Other Heisman Trophy Award Quarterback Candidates in Sam Ehlinger of The Texas Longhorns in The Second Game of The Season and Tua Tagovailoa of The Alabama Crimson Tide, Later in The Season. It is Also Going To Be Interesting To Note That The LSU Tigers Hired A Young Expert of The New Explosive Run/Pass Option Spread Offense and Passing Game Coordinator, Named Joe Brady, Who is a “Brilliant Expert” of  The New LSU Offense.

Coach Joe Brady Was Appalled Over The LSU Tigers Dropped Passes in 2018!

When Joe Brady Got To Researching The LSU Tiger Passing Spread Offense, He Was Appalled When He Found-Out About The Amount of Passes That Were Dropped in The 2018 Season, by The LSU Tiger Wide Receivers and He Realized That “The Dropped Passes” Problem Had To Be Rectified, Before The 2019 Season Started.

In Fact, The NCAA Stats Speak For Themselves. In 2018, The LSU Tiger Passing Offense Finished 96th Among All FBS Teams in Pass-Catching Percentage, As They Only Caught 84.3% of All Catchable Targeted Passes, and This is Factual, According to THE PRO FOOTBALL FOCUS (PFF). In 13 games, The LSU Tigers Dropped an Unbelievable 26 Targeted and Catchable Pass-Catches and The LSU Wide Receivers, Accounted For 21 of Those Catchable Dropped Passes.

The The LSU Passing Problem Was Dropped Passes and The Solution, is Literally “Behind-Closed-Doors” and While The Rest of The Team is Working on SPECIAL TEAMS, The Brady Wide Receivers Would Be Put To an Incredible Pass-Catching Drill as They Would Be Standing Behind a Closed Door and When The Door Opens, a Thrown Football Had Just Been Thrown About One-Second Earlier by Coach Brady and The Receiver Must Make The Catch and If He Drops the Football; The Wide Receiver Drops To The Ground For 20 Pushups.

“The open door that was definitely new for me,” Said Junior Justin Jefferson.  “It was Like, You’re going To Hit Me with The Football. But as time went on, and the more we did it, The More Comfortable I Felt With it.”

Comfort With The New Passing Drill Was The key Word for Coach Brady and His Wide Receivers and He Gave All of His Wide Receivers A Huge Goal For The 2019 Summer To-Catch 10,000 Thrown Balls. Catch The Ball Behind The Door. Catch The Football on The Jugs Passing Machines. Just Make 10,000 Pass-Catches. Just Catch Them, Wherever and However You Can. Droped Passes Would Not Be Acceptable in 2019, because Coach Brady Believed That His Outstanding Wide Receivers held in their hands The Entire Fate of The LSU Tigers Football Team.

Of Course, Quarterback Joe Burrow (#9) Needed To Throw Thousands of Footballs and so Burrow and His Receivers Worked-Hard All Summer.

“I told these guys every single day: ‘This team is going to go as The Wide Receivers go,'” Coach Brady Said. “‘There is not a day that we can take off. This Wide Receiver Unit is going to make this team who we are and I want them to have that Mentality.”

SIDEBAR II: I Was an All-State and All-American Running Back, Free Safety, Kick Returner, and Punt Returner in High School, but I Played Wide Receiver, Free Safety, Kick-Return, and Punt Return in College After My Baylor Freshman All-SWC  Season and Then Double MVP’s in The Guam Military Rice Bowl Championship and The All-Greater Pacific Military Tokyo Bowl Championship For The 1967 All-Greater Pacific Military World Championship Team. I Honestly Can Not Remember Ever Dropping a Pass, but I Probably Did. Concentration and Focus Were The Most Important Things For Me as a Receiver and Returner. In Almost Every Game That I Started, I Made One-Handed Catches and Several One-Handed Interceptions. In Fact, in Three of My Biggest Games in High School and a Baylor Freshman, I had 8 Interceptions and 3 Were One-Handed Catches. 

The LSU Tigers Shocked The SEC, College Football, And Heisman Voters In Opening Two Games With Their New Offense!

THE LSU TIGERS GAME ONE

“What We Saw Here Tonight Was What We Have Seen In Practice For The Last Few Days,” Said LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron after The First Game. “The Guys Have Really Worked Very Hard and We Are Very Pleased With The New LSU RUN/PASS SPREAD OPTION OFFENSE!

I Think The LSU Tigers Are going To Score a Lot of Points This Year, and I Really Do Not Think That a Lot of People are Used to The LSU Tigers Scoring 40, 50, and Even 60 Points Per Game. The New Explosive LSU Tiger Run/Pass Option Offense Lived-Up To All of Its Off-Season and Pre-Season Hype in Their First Game of The Football Season in Their 55-3 Over-Whelming Victory over Georgia Southern In The LSU Tiger Football Stadium.

Joe Burrow and The New LSU Run/Pass Option Offense Were “Outright” Incredible as The LSU Tiger Offense Amassed 473-Yards of Total Offense in The 55-3 Victory. It Was The Most Points Scored By The LSU Tiger Offense Since They Scored 49 Points Against Louisiana Tech in The 2003 Season.

It Was Also The Largest Margin of Victory Since Defeating Sam Houston State by a 56-0 Score in The 2014 Football Season. Joe Burrow Was Unbelievably Incredible as He Completed His First Five Passes, on his way, To Completing 23 of 27 Passes, Five Touchdown Passes, an 85.2 Completion Per-Cent, and a “Mind-Boggling” 232.8 Quarterback Rating.

Also, With His Five Touchdown Passes, Burrow Tied LSU Tiger Quarterback Zach Metterberger’s Record for Passing Touchdowns in a Single Game. Remember That Burrow only Played Two Quarters and One Series in The Third Quarter. If You Add The Game Stats For Burrow, in his Last Two Games, He Has Passed For 672-Yards and an Incredible Nine Touchdown Passes in Only Six Quarters of Play and With Only One Interception. With The New Explosive LSU Tiger Run/Pass Option Offense, The Tigers Scored 21 Points in The First and Second Quarter and Were 7-For-7 in The Red-Zone. 

THE LSU TIGERS GAME TWO

LSU Tiger Quarterback Joe Burrow and The New LSU SPREAD-OPTION OFFENSE Were Again “Outright” Incredible in The 45-38 Victory over The Texas Longhorns as The Incredible Burrow (6-4, 216, 4.6) Completed an Amazing 31 of 39 Passes for 471-Yards and Four Touchdown Passes Which was The Second Most Single-Game Passing Yards From An LSU Tiger Quarterback Since Rohan Davey Passed for 528-Yards Against The Alabama Crimson Tide in 2001.

Another Incredible Stat Was That The LSU Tigers Had Three Big and Freaky Wide Receivers Who Recorded Over 100-Yards in Receiving. Junior Justin Jefferson (6-3, 192, 4.42) Caught 9 Passes for 163-Yards and an Incredible Three Touchdowns, including Touchdown Catches of 3, 21, and 61-yards; while Sophomore Ja’marr Chase (6-1, 205, 4.42) Caught 8 Passes For 147-Yards and Sophomore Terrace Marshall (6-4, 209, 4.4) Caught 6 Passes For 123-Yards and a 26-Yard Touchdown.

The LSU Tigers Needed The 61-Yard Touchdown by Jefferson, because The Texas Longhorns Stormed-Back With a 15-Yard Touchdown Pass from Texas Longhorn Quarterback Sam Ehlinger to Devin Duvernay.

On This Play, The Texas Longhorns Blitzed Two Linebackers and Burrow Was Surrounded by Defenders, But Burrow Eluded Them and Hit Jefferson at About 15-Yards To The Left. Then When The Texas Longhorn Sterns Lunged To-Make The Tackle and Missed, Jefferson Raced Down The Left Sideline For The 61-Yard Touchdown.

The LSU Tigers Head Football Coach Ed Orgeron was Super Excited About The New LSU SPREAD-OPTION OFFENSE Especially After It Totaled 573-Yards and 45 Points Against in The Texas Longhorns In Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin,Texas. ‘We have said that if we had To Score 40-Points, then We Will win The Game,” Said Coach Orgeron.

THE HEISMAN TROPHY AWARD FORMULA IS REALLY VERY SIMPLE!

The Heisman Trophy Award Formula is Really Very Simple. Find an Outstanding Quarterback on a National Championship Contending Team and You Find Alabama Crimson Tide Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Clemson Tigers  Quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Both of These Quarterbacks faced each other in The 2018 National Championship Game and They are The Two Heisman Trophy Award Front-Runners and Favorites in The 2019 Heisman Trophy Award Two Other Candidates and Quarterback Transfers Include Ohio State Transfer and LSU Tiger Quarterback Joe Burrow; Plus Alabama Transfer and Oklahoma Quarterback Jalen Hurts. So Both Burrow and Hurts Literally Have The Odds in Their Favor To-Win the Heisman Trophy!

In his Very First Game as an Oklahoma Sooner, Jalen Hurts Was Incredible in Playing an Almost “Perfect-Game” as He Passed For 332-Yards and Three Touchdowns; While Rushing for Another 176-Yards and Another Three Touchdowns, giving him 506-Yards of Total Offense and Six Touchdowns In  The Oklahoma Sooners 49-31 Victory Over The Houston Cougars!

High School Quarterback Sensation!

Quarterback Joe Burrow (#10) Was an Unbelievable and Incredible High School Passing quarterback Freak at Athens, Ohio High School in Athens, Ohio. Coming Out of His School, He Signed With The Home-State and Favorite Team, The Ohio State BuckeyesBurrow Was The Top Quarterback Prospect in the 2015 Recruiting Class With a Super-Strong Arm To-Go With a Very Impressive High School Football IQ. Burrow Was A Natural-Born Leader with The Unbelievable Ability To-Throw or Run, and Skills To-Stretch The Field, Passing or Running.

His Senior Season at Athens High School, Burrow Completed 250 passes out of 346 Attempts for 4,445-Yards and an Incredible 63 Touchdowns and a 151.6 quarterback Rating. Burrow also Rushed for Another 642-Yards and 5 Rushing Touchdowns, Giving Him 5,087-Yards of Total Offense and 68 Touchdowns as a Senior. Burrow Finished his 41-Game Three Year High School Varsity Career with 11,416-Yards and 157 Touchdown Passes and 2,067-Yards Rushing and 27 Touchdown Runs, Giving Him A “Mind-Boggling” 13,483-Yards of Total Offense and 184 Touchdowns. Burrow Had an Incredible HS Career, but he Only Played in 3 Games For The Buckeyes In The 2017 Football Season, and Everyone Knew That Burrow Would Eventually Transfer!

SIDEBAR III: This Weekend, I Will Be Very Honored and Privileged Again on Saturday and Sunday of January 18 and 19, The Weekend Before The Annual College Football All-American Senior Bowl Game, to be Their Super Scout Again at The Nineteenth Annual Lestini Group National Pro Football Free Agent Tryout Camp in Mobile, Alabama.
