2018 Lestini Free Agent Combine Highlighted By Some Great Skill Players! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

2018 Lestini Free Agent Combine Highlighted By Some Great Skill Players!

I was very Honored and Privileged again on Saturday and Sunday before the Annual College Football All-American Senior Bowl Game to be a Super Scout again at the 17th Annual Lestini Group Free Agent Super Combine in Mobile, AlabamaCamp Director John L. Lestini Jr and his wife Mary Jo Lestini who is the Camp Coordinator  have been putting-on this Free Agent Super Combine for 17 Years and it gives Former College and Former Pro Players, who might be “Flying Under The Radar”  an excellent opportunity to show what they can do and help them to get Themselves into or back into the NFL, Canadian Football League, World League, Europe Football League, Arena Football League, or any of the New Professional Developmental Football Leagues which might be  starting play in 2018.

There are Nine Teams in The Canadian Football League and Two of those CFL Teams were represented at The Lestini Camp. There also were Seven Coaches and Scouts that Attended The Lestini Camp from those Two CFL Teams.

Saturday Night, the Players were able to meet The Lestini Combine Super Coaches and I was able to meet about Half of The Players. As all of the Players and Coaches were Mulling-Around in the Hotel Lobby, some really Impressive Players walked into the Hotel Lobby. I looked-up and saw Three Monster Linemen coming Down-The-Hall. One was 6-8 and the other two were 6-7 and 6-4. I also was Very Impressed with a 6-2 Safety and a 6-3 Quarterback coming Down-The-Hall.

The 6-8 Lineman was #87 R-OT Joe Elowitz and the 6-7  Lineman was #134 R-OT Demarcus Hutchinson. The 6-4 Lineman was DE/DT Jamal Baker (#45 in Photo) and the Very Good-Looking 6-2 Safety from Louisiana College was Shaquille Lewis (#43 in Photo). The Really Good-Looking Quarterback was Ben Wilkerson, who played for The Munich Cowboys of the German Football League in 2017.

I was also Highly Impressed with their Physical and Muscular Physique and also their UnbelievableGreat Character. I had  previously written stories about Baker on the National High School and College Football Scene.

All Four Players Looked Great on Sunday. They did not run Outstanding Forties, but they did record Outstanding Pro-Shuttles, demonstrating Tremendous Quickness and Agility. Baker, at 275-Pounds, Recorded an Incredible 4.4 Pro-Shuttle, giving him The Maximum 400-Points; while Elowitz at 355-Pounds Recorded an Incredible 4.9 Pro-Shuttle, giving him 300-Points; while Lewis Recorded a 4.22 Pro-Shuttle and gave him The Maximum 400-Points. Wilkerson had some Unbelievably Impressive Measurables for a Quarterback.

We had about 50 Free Agent Players who had Planned to Attend the Super Free Agent Combine, but due to the Terrible Weather Forecasts, including Freezing Weather, only 23 Players were able to Participate in the Event that was Highlighted by about Five Sensational Wide Receivers; Six Defensive Backs; Three or Four Linemen, and a Quarterback.  

LESTINI SUPER COMBINE COACHES

Offensive Line and Pro Shuttle Instructor Coach Ron Estay

Coach Ron Estay was a former Defensive Lineman for the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League. After graduating from Louisiana State University in 1972, Estay was Drafted by the Denver Broncos in the 8th Round of the 1972 NFL Draft. After that 1972 NFL Draft, Estay moved to Canada and played for the British Columbia Lions in 1972 and then Edmonton Eskimos from 1973 to 1982, and helped lead that team to Five Straight Canadian Grey Cup Championships from 1978 – 1982 as a key member of the “Alberta Crude” Defense. Coach Estay also played in 1983 for the Washington Federals of the USFL. Coach Estay is also a Former Defensive Line Coach of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Coach Estay also was the Coordinator of the Most Important Speed Measurable in the Pro-Agility Shuttle and he did another  Amazing Job with his Pro-Shuttle Instruction as evidence that an Incredible 9 of 23 Skill Players recorded aMind-Boggling” 4.2 Pro-Shuttle or Better and One Lineman recorded a 4.4 Pro-Shuttle.

The Most Incredible Pro-Shuttle of the Super Combine was by #56 WR Jareth Embry with an Incredible 4.06 ShuttleAnother Amazing Three of the Five Wide Receivers ran a 4.2 or Better Pro-Shuttle, including #41 WR Willie Robinson with a 4.1 Pro-Shuttle; #49 WR Terrell Reginal with a 4.19 Pro-Shuttle; and #55 WR Marquise Ricard with a 4.16 Pro-Shuttle. The WR MEARS RATING Standard is Set at 4.6, so all Four Wide Receivers were given the Maximum 400 MEARS RATING POINTS

When we got through with the Combine Part of the Camp, we finally realized that we  had Six Defensive Backs for our One-On-One Competition against the Five Wide Receivers and Running Backs, but we only had Three Cornerbacks to Really Try to Cover The Five Outstanding Wide Receivers, and although those Three or FourDefensive Backs had not run a really fast Lestini Camp Forty, they were Extremely Quick and Extremely Aggressive.

Also, most of the Wide Receivers and Defensive Backs wanted to Play both Positions in the One-On-One Competition, which was Great, because I was able to Evaluate their Speed and Quickness on both sides of the Football.

Out of the Six Defensive Backs, there were Five that recorded a 4.25 or Better in the Pro-Shuttle; including #40 FS Antoine Tharpe with an Incredible 4.06 Pro-Shuttle. Other Great Pro-Shuttles included #47 CB Willie Smith with a 4.19 Pro-Shuttle; #37 CB Dallin Finley and #48 CB/FS Lecorey Demease with a 4.2 Pro-Shuttle; and #43 SS Shaquille Lewis with a 4.25 Pro-Shuttle. All Five Defensive Backs Received The Maximum 400-Points.

In the Standing Broad Jump, #43 Lewis recorded a Great 126 SBJ; while #37 Finley recorded a 124 SBJ; and #48 Demease recorded a 120 SBJ.

In 1996 and 1997, he was a Scout for both the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League. During the 1999 Season, Coach Hochtritt Scouted NFL Pre-Season training camps for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Coach Hochtritt assisted Coach Ron Estay in the Timing of the Pro-Shuttle in the Super Combine and he and Coach Estay really did a Great Job in helping these Great Free AgentsAthletes to Record an Outstanding Pro-Agility Shuttle in one of their most important Speed Measurables in the Lestini Super Combine.

Coach Dick Adams and Coach Wes Courier, Jr both assisted with the Quarterbacks and Receivers at the Camp on Sunday.

Founders of Lestini Free Agent Combine
John and Mary Jo Lestini

All of these Lestini Group Coaches have helped John and Mary Jo Lestini to make this Super Free Agents Combine, the Greatest and Most Impressive Free Agents Super Combine that there is, in the Country, for all of these 17 Years.

I would still have to say that the most exciting part for me as a Super Scout is to see all of these Great Athletes in action and “Showing Their Stuff” on Sunday in front of all of the Coaches and Scouts from various Professional Teams and Professional  Leagues. There were at Least Ten Canadian Professional Teams at the Super Combine and Super Workout on Sunday.

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 Cowboys #1 Player in that 1977 NFL Draft.

Although I developed my Rating System, when I left the Cowboys, I did not Start using The Rating System until 2001, when NIKE Sports developed a similar Rating System and called it the SPARQ RATING SYSTEM. I then decided to bring back 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 Recruiting Services were using the Five-Star Rating System Method which does not Measure anything. One year, at the start of the Spring, there were 45 Wide Receivers that were Rated a Four-Star. We went to bed one night and the next morning there were only 25. Someone had decided that there could only be 25 Four-Star Wide Receivers in The Country and he had demoted 20 of them to a Three-Star.

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 Vertical Jump, Pro-Agility Shuttle, and a Standing Broad Jump.

In this Super Combine, The Lestini Group Coaches Tested all of these Free Agent Players will have Two Speed Measurables, including the Forty and the Pro-Agility Shuttle; plus the Standing Broad Jump.

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

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 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 Evaluation, giving him the Maximum Points on most of his  Measurables for his position.

Most High School and College Football Players don’t even know what their Measurables are and you would think that they would, but they don’t. 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 Distance Measurables by as much as Six to Eight Inches.

1 WR/RET – Jareth Embry –  Embry did not Become a Gold-Chip Player without having some Incredible Speed and Agility Measurables. I have been in Scouting for a Few Decades and I have Occasionally seen Players do what Embry did at the Lestini Combine. Embry ran the Fastest Forty with a 4.39 Forty and Tied with #40 CB Antoine Tharpe with a Fabulous 4.06 Pro-Shuttle.

In the Pass-Catching Drills, Embry made at least three Unbelievable One-Handed Catches, with Absolutely “No-Drops” in The Passing Drills and then he made One of the Most Incredible and Most Incredible Catches of the Day in the Pass-Defense Drills against an Outstanding Cover Cornerback.

Embry was an Outstanding Wide Receiver in The “Air-Raid” Passing Offense at Belhaven University and he is Unbelievable on his Highlight Film. He also Recorded an Outstanding 38-Inch and a 40-Inch Vertical Jump to go with his 23-Feet and 6-Inch Long Jump Record.

2 SS – Daquan Lucas – Lucas has been an Outstanding Strong Safety and Outside Linebacker for his Entire Career in High School and College. As a Senior, at Timberland High School in St Stephen, South Carolina, Lucas was The 2A Defensive Player of The Year in 2011 and Helped Lead his Football Team to The 2A State Championship, along with Making All-StateLucas also led his Timberland High School Football Team to an Incredible 51-4 Record in Four Years and his Team Won The Regional Football Championship in all Four Seasons and as a Senior, he was Selected to The MaxPreps All-American Team and Selected to The Carolina Shrine Game.

In 2015, as a Senior, for The Charlotte 49ers, Lucas (#24) Recorded an Incredible 10 Tackles for a Loss, after Recording 8 Tackles for a Loss as a Junior. His 19.5 Career Tackles for a Loss made him only The Third Player in Charlotte History for a Player to get Double-Digit Tackles for a Loss.

Lucas looked Really Fast in his Lestini Combine Forties and he also looked Really Fast in his 4.28 Pro Shuttle. I had Lucas with a 4.56 Forty and he had a 4.47 at The NFL Combine and so I Averaged both Times and gave him a 4.51 Forty. His 4.28 Pro Shuttle was Outstanding at The Lestini Combine and at The NFL Combine, he did a Great 121-Inch Standing Broad Jump and did 22 Reps of 225 Pounds on The Bench Press.

3 QB – Ben Wilkerson – Wilkerson was One of Three Quarterbacks who Originally were Signed-Up to Participate, in The Lestini Super Combine, but due to Cold Weather, only one was able to Participate and that was Lestini #44 Ben Wilkerson from Fayette Ware, TennesseeAlfred State, and The Munich Cowboys in Germany in the German Football League.

In 2015, as a Senior at Alfred State, Wilkerson Passed for 1,212-Yards and 9 Touchdowns in Eight Games with a 151,9-Yards Per Game Average. His Best Game was against Maranatha Baptist University when he Passed  for 329-Yards and Three Touchdowns. On his Highlight Film, Wilkerson is an Outstanding Athletic Quarterback who does not throw a Really Hard Pass, but he is Extremely Accurate in the Pocket and on Roll-outs.

At The Lestini Super Combine, Wilkerson (#5) Ran a Great 4.76 Forty, an Outstanding 4.25 Pro-Shuttle, and another Outstanding 126-Inch Standing Broad Jump. At The Hudl Super Combine, he ran a 4.6 Forty and did an Outstanding 36-Inch Vertical Jump, so I Averaged his Two Forties and gave him a 4.68, along with a 36-Inch Vertical Jump.

4 WR/RET – Terrell Reginal – Reginal is a Speedy Wide Receiver and Return Man who made Several Outstanding Catches during the Lestini Combine Passing Drills, including a Great One-Handed Catch and at least Two Unbelievable Catches in the Pass Defense Drills.

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, people standing and outdoorLestini Combine Founder John Lestini, Super Scout, and WR Terrell Reginal.

Reginal ran a 4.63 at The Lestini Super Combine, but he also ran a 4.39 at The Hudl Combine and a 4.31 at The 2017 Winnepeg CFL Combine, so I averaged all Three Times and gave him a 4.53 in the Forty. Reginal did an Incredible 4.19 Pro Shuttle at The Lestini Combine and he did a 4.31 for Winnepeg, along with a Great 38-Inch Vertical Jump, so I think he can run in The 4.4’s when in Shape.

5 WR – Jason Williams – Although Williams did not run a Super Fast Forty at The Lestini Super Combine, he and Embry and Reginal were the Most Impressive Wide Receivers in The Lestini Combine Passing Drills. In The Passing Drills, I was Super Impressed with both #56 and #61, but I Started Watching #61 and I saw him Make Several Unbelievable Catches, so I Checked his Lestini Video Highlights and I was Shocked at his Great Catches. One of his Incredible Catches was an Incredible Catch, while Falling-Down.

In his Lestini Video Highlights, Williams (#61) Made Eight Straight Sensational Pass-Catches, until #9 and #10 Passes were Over-Thrown and Un-Catchable. Then, he made Two More Sensational Catches on #11 and #12.

Williams, from Huntersville Hopewell HS, in North Carolina, and Catawba CollegeRan a 4.82 Forty at The Lestini Combine, but he ran a 4.42 at The Hudl Super Combine and a 4.36 at The Arena Super Combine and I Averaged all three and gave him a 4.53. I also Think that he can run faster than a 4.53. He also did a 38-Inch Vertical Jump at both The Hudl Combine and The Arena Combine. At The Lestini Combine, Williams did an Outstanding 126-Inch Standing Broad Jump; while doing a 129-Inch Standing Broad Jump at The Hudle Camp and another Outstanding 132-Inch Standing Broad Jump at The Arena Super Combine.

6 DT/DE – Jamal Baker Baker is in the Above Photo, you can see that #45 Jamal Baker, is at least 6-4, although he has been listed at 6-3. When Baker was a Defensive End, he was a 4.87 Forty Guy and he was a Tremendous Rush End who made a lot of Big Plays. He also is Listed with the NFL Draft as a 4.87 Guy and he also is Listed with The Hudl Combine with a 4.7, back when he was Lighter.

Baker played at Houston Sharpstown and I remember him being a Really Great Player, but he was “Under the Radar” and he Signed with Texas Southern where he was a Star and then later Transferred to The University of Houston.

Baker ran an Incredible 4.4 in The Pro-Shuttle at the Lestini Super Combine, which indicates that he Still has the Great Quickness. Also, Remember that he Weighed-In at 270-Pounds. I Rated and Ranked him as a Defensive Tackle, because his Measurables were more Incredible at that Position than at Defensive End. His 5.16 Forty is Still Very Outstanding for a Defensive Tackle to go with his Fabulous 4.4 Shuttle. His best Standing Broad Jump was an Incredible 110-Inch Standing Broad Jump at The Hudl Super Combine.

7 CB – Willie SmithSmith was Sensational. Out of all of the Great Defensive Backs, in the Lestini Super Combine, the Most Impressive Pure Cornerback was #47 Willie Smith of Louisiana College and he made one of the Most Impressive Interceptions of the Lestini Passing Scrimmage at the End of the Day. On that Interception, Smith and the Wide Receiver, that he was covering, both went up for the Football and as both came-down to the ground, Smith had the Football in his Hands for the Incredible Interception. Smith also Recorded at Least Six other Pass Breakups in the Scrimmage.

Smith played his High School Football for Coach Mike Charpentier at Powerhouse Lafayette Teurlings Catholic, Louisiana and Smith was an All-District Player as a Senior for his Team. He Signed with Louisiana College and he was the Top Pure Cover Cornerback for them as a Freshman in 2014.

In 2016, as a Junior, Smith Recorded 31 Tackles, including 23 Solo Tackles, and he also Recorded Two Interceptions and one was a 98-Yard Untouched Return, against Sul Ross, for a Touchdown. The other Interception was an Incredible Diving-Catch. This was all Outstanding, but what Separated Smith from all of the other Defensive Backs in the American Southwest Conference League was his 23 Pass Breakups, which made him the American Southwest Conference League Defensive Back MVP.

Smith was Timed in a 4.56 Forty on Three of His Four Hand-Timings at the Lestini Super Combine which is Consistent, but his 4.42 Forty and 38-Inch Vertical Jump with Hudl is more Consistent with his Forty Speed on the 98-Yard Interception Return for a Touchdown and so I gave him a 4.42 Forty and 38-Inch Vertical Jump.

8 FS/CB – Lecorey Demease – Demease is a Super Versatile Defense who can be a Super-Star at either Free Safety or Cornerback and on high Louisiana College Highlight Film, he Makes a Lot of Big Plays. He Played at Coushatta Red River High School in Louisiana before he went to Louisiana College. As a Red-Shirt Freshman, Demease was The Best Pure Athlete on the Team as he led Louisiana College with Two Defensive Touchdowns, including a 97-Yard Interception Return for a Touchdown against Sul Ross and a 16-Yard Blocked-Punt Return for a Touchdown against Hardin Simmons.

In 2016, against my Hometown College Team, Howard Payne University, Demease was Selected as The American Southwest Conference Defensive Player of the Week as he Recorded an Interception, Forced a Fumble, Recovered a Fumble, and his Fifth Pass Breakup of the Season.

Demease was Outstanding At The Lestini Pass Defense as he made Several Pass Breakups and Two Interceptions. He also recorded a Great 4.22 Pro Shuttle and a Great 120-Inch Standing Broad Jump. I also to go with Timed him in a 4.51 Forty to go with 4.42 Forty and a 38-Inch Vertical Jump at The Hudl Camp, a 4.44 at another NFL Camp, and a 4.5 Timing at The New Orleans Saints Training Camp. I averaged all Four of his Forty Clockings and gave him a 4.46 Official Forty Timing. On his Highlight Film, Demease looks even faster than a 4.46.

9 DT/DE – Abraham “Tyrice” Lawson – Lawson was a Very Impressive Physical Speciman at The Lestini Free Agent Super Combine. Lawson did not Run a Really Fast Forty at The Lestini Camp, but he Looked like a “Beast” while Running his Forties and he looked much Faster Running it than his Actual Time. While he ran a 5.4 Forty at The Lestini Camp, and Weighing much more than normal, Lawson ran a 4.7 at The Hudl Combine, when he weighed much less, and then another 4.72 at The Georgia Knight Combine and so I Averaged all Three Times and gave him a 4.95 Forty. I also Rated Lawson as a Defensive Tackle instead of his Regular Dominating Defensive End Position.

Lawson has Played for The Georgia Knights for the last Two Years in 2015 and 2016 in the Georgia Gridiron Development Football League; after also playing for The Atlanta Sports Academy Spartans in Dawsonville, Georgia. On his Highlight Film, for both Teams, Lawson was an Incredible “Beast” at both Right Defensive End and Right Offensive Tackle.

“I have been playing for The Georgia Knights for the last two years, but I am looking to Upgrade my Level of Football and I will make the effort to do whatever possible to make the Upgrade Possible,” said Lawson.

1 WR/All-Purpose – Willie “Fly” Robinson Robinson was Probably the Most Versatile All-Purpose Receiver at the Lestini Super Combine. In the Photo Below, Robinson is making one of his Touchdown Catches in the Impressive Game in 2014 against Rose-Hulman Institute in which he Caught 10 Passes for 198-Yards and Returned 3 Kickoffs for another 57-Yards, giving him an Incredible 255-Yards, Two Touchdowns, and a 19.7 Yards Per Touch on 13 Touches, in a 51-14 Loss to Rose-Hulman InstituteFor the 2014 Season, Robinson Caught 44 Passes for 575-Yards and Six Touchdowns and had 14 Kickoff Returns for another 240-Yards.

Robinson may have made more Outstanding Catches in the Pass Defense Drills at The Lestini Free Agent Camp than any other Wide Receiver. I have him with at least Eight Outstanding Catches in the Drills, after not Dropping a Single Pass in the Passing Drills and with Two One-Handed Catches.

In the Forty, at The Lestini Super Combine, I Timed Robinson with a 4.65 and a 4.68, but his Best time was a 4,36 in The Hudl Combine which also Listed him with a 40-Inch Vertical Jump. We know that Robinson (#5 In Photo) can run-faster than a 4.65 or 4.68 and so I averaged his 4.65 and 4.36 and gave him a 4.5, to go with his Incredible 40-Inch Vertical Jump and 4.1 Pro-Shuttle.

Willie Robinson

2 SS – Shaquille Lewis – Although Shaquille Lewis of Louisiana College was Impressive on Saturday Night in the Hotel Lobby, he was even more Impressive on Sunday at the Super Combine. First of all, if you look at the Photo of #45 Jamal Baker who is 6-4; there is Absolutely No-Way that Lewis is 6-1. On his Hudl, his Height was listed at 6-2 with a 4.62 Forty and that was a Couple Years Ago, so he is at least 6-2, and maybe even taller.

Lewis is also Faster than his 4.62 Forty and with his Outstanding 4.25 Pr0-Shuttle and Outstanding 126 Standing Broad Jump; Lewis is Probably about a 4.55 in The Forty In his NFL Workouts on Youtube, his Speed and Agility is Outstanding and Lewis is also Very Impressive on his Highlight Film on the Internet.

Out of all of the Great Character Players at The Lestini Super Free Agent Combine, none were more Impressive than Lewis and he Demonstrated it in The Last Few Moments of The Combine.

As we were about to End The Camp, all of the Players and Coaches Huddled Together, in the Middle of The Field, and Everyone Placed their Hands on each other in the Huddle and then All of a Sudden, an Unbelievable Prayer to Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior, was Said by Shaquille Lewis.

3 RB – Keith Brown – Brown is an Outstanding Slot Receiver who can also play Running Back. He helped lead his Shreveport Byrd High School Team to The District Championship as a Senior, but he was “Flying Under The Radar” and he was a Walk-On at Louisiana Tech.

In 2015, Brown Played for The New Orleans Crescent City Kings in The First Development League and he was a Super-Star in The Championship Game as he Caught a 59-Yard Pass from Quarterback Melvin Davis for an Early Touchdown, as The Kings Won The Championship. The Defensive Player of The Championship Game was Former 2014 Lestini Combine Super-Star DE Shaun Jones, who Recorded 7 Tackles and 2 Quarterback Sacks.

Brown also played for The Kings in 2016, but he was The Victim of the HC Firing of Coach C.J. Maiden, The Offensive Coordinator and Former Lestini Coach and a Three-Year All-American Bowl Game Coach. After this, The Kings, who were Favored to Win The Championship Again, were Clueless on Offense and did not make it to The Championship.

After the 2016 Season with The Kings, Brown came to The 2017 Lestini Camp and he was Outstanding in The Drills and did an Outstanding 4.22 Pro Shuttle and a 118 Standing Broad Jump. An Amazing Stat was that Brown did Two 118 Standing Broad Jumps in 2017 and one 118 Standing Broad Jump in 2018. Brown also did a 4.52 Forty and a 36-Inch Vertical Jump in The Hudl Combine and gave him a 4.6 Forty and a 36-Inch Vertical Jump.

4 FS – Deontae Heuer – Heuer Might have been The Most Versatile Player at The Lestini Super Combine, because he was not only an Outstanding Free Safety on Defense, but he was also a “Very Skilled” Center-Snapper on Punts. I was able to see Heuer in The Lestini Pass-Defense Drills and he made a Couple of Really Nice Pass-Breakups and a Couple of Great Interceptions. but we did not get to see his Center-Snapping on Punts.

Heuer Played at Stanley Boyd High School in Stanley, Wisconsin. He then Played his College Football at Augsburg University in Minneapolis, Minnesota and he had some Incredible Career Stats from 2014-2017 at Augsburg with 217 Tackles and an Impressive Seven Forced Fumbles. Heuer also had some Really Impressive Track Times with a 10.6 Timing in the 100 Meters and a 48.7 Clocking in the 400 Meters. He also had a Best Bench Press of 300-Pounds and a 250-Pound Squat.

Heuer ran a 4.8 in the Forty at The Lestini Camp, but he ran a 4.5 Forty at The Hudl Camp and a 4.42 at another NFL Camp. With an Official 10.6 in the 100 Meters, Heuer, obviously is at least a 4.5 Guy and so I gave him a 4.5. He had a 4.57 Pro Shuttle at The Lestini Camp, but had Previous Bests of 4.22 and 4.25 and so I Averaged all Three Times and gave him a 4.34. At The Hudl Camp, he recorded a 39-Inch Vertical Jump and that is what I gave him.

5 WR – Marquise Ricard – Ricard is a Tremendous “Big-Receiver” who has a Fabulous History of Making “The Big-Play” in the Big-Game. As a Senior, at Baton Rouge Southern Lab, Ricard was a Sensational Three-Sport Super-Star in Football, Basketball, and Track. As a Senior In Football, Ricard Caught 40 Passes for 830-Yards and an Incredible 16 Touchdowns,  Averaging 20.8-Yards Per Catch. I saw Ricard Play on Two Occasions, but I’m not sure in which games, but I thought that he was a Super-Freak.

Then in Basketball, Ricard Averaged 15-Points a Game in Leading his Roundball Team to The State Runner-Up and in Track, Ricard became a Three-Time Long Jump and Triple-Jump State Champion, in Leading his Track Team to The Track State Championship.

In The Passing Drills, Ricard Made at Least Two Outstanding One-Handed Catches and then made one of the Most Outstanding Catches of the Day in the Pass Defense Drills. I Timed Ricard in a 4.6 Forty and a 4.13 Pro-Shuttle, but he ran a 4.46 Forty and a 4.41 Pro Shuttle at The Hudl Combine, along with a 40-Inch Vertical Jump, so I gave him a 4.53, which he also ran at The NFL Combine.

At The Hudl Super Combine, Finley Recorded a 4.45 in the Forty; a 38-inch Vertical Jump; and a 4.22-Pro Shuttle. I averaged his 4.45 with my 4.58 and came-up with an Official 4.51 for his Forty Time.

At The Lestini Super Combine, Tharpe did not run a real fast Forty, but I Timed him with a 4.68, but he did Record a Sensational 4.06 Pro-Shuttle, indicating that he has Tremendous Quickness and the Ability to run a faster Forty. At The Hudl Combine, Tharpe ran a 4.46 Forty and he also Recorded a Great 36-Inch Vertical Jump and so I Averaged his 4.68 and 4.46 Forties and gave him a 4.57 in the Forty.

3 R-OT Joe Elowitz – Elowitz is one of the Most Intriguing and most Interesting Athlete that you will ever see at a Football Super Combine. In High School, Elowitz was an All-District Super-Star in Football, Basketball, and Baseball and he went to College on Scholarship, but it was not on a Football Scholarship, but it was on a Basketball Scholarship. He also Played College Basketball and College Baseball at New York University.

His Great Quickness was Demonstrated in his Big Plays in The Arena Football League with a 50-Yard Field and with a Great 4.31 Pro Shuttle at The Lestini Camp. Nash also ran a Great 4.22 Shuttle at an Arena Football Camp and so I averaged both Pro Shuttles and gave him a 4.26.

GOLD= NFL All-Pro Player or Super Prospect
BLUE = NFL Future Pro or Great Potential Prospect
RED = NFL Average Player or Prospect
GREEN = NFL Rookie or Below Average Prospect

About Forty 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 where we went into a Conference Room where Head Football 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 Player and then Color-Code every player in the NFL as to their Rating and Ranking.”

NOTE: A huge“Flip-Chart” was developed with each NFL Team. Then, a Color-Coded Business-Card with Name, Height, Weight, and Forty for each NFL Player 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 Head Coach Tom Landry and The Late Legendary 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. In 1975, there were 28 NFL Teams and each Team had around 60 Players; so I evaluated around 1,700 Players. It took me about three weeks, but the Flip-Chart was ready before The Fourth Game Against the New York Giants.

My job with the Dallas Cowboys was to Evaluate, Rate, and Rank College Football Players for the NFL Draft. My boss, 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 made a Texas Top 100 Recruiting List to give to all of the College Football Coaches.

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 turned to Coach Stautner and gave me the Title of Super Scout: “Coach Stautner, I think we have us a Real Super Scout!”

The Incredible Super Bowl of Super Tight End Zach Ertz! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

The Incredible Super Bowl of  Super
Tight End Zach Ertz!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger


Nick Foles hit The Incredible Super Tight End Zach Ertz (#86) in The End -Zone with a Touchdown Catch that he Temporarily Bobbled!

The Super-Star Philadelphia Eagles Passing Duo of Quarterback Nick Foles and Tight End Zach Ertz Competed Against The New England Patriots Duo of Tom Brady and Ron Gronkowski for The Entire Super Bowl Game on Sunday; but in The Final Result, The Eagles Passing Duo made The Most Incredible Plays of The Game and Helped The Eagles To Defeat The Patriots in a 41-33 Victory in The Super Bowl LII Game, in what might be the Biggest Super Bowl Upset in The 52 Year History of The Game.

At The End of The Game and with Time Running-Out, Super-Stars, Nick Foles and Zach Ertz Guided The Eagles to a Super Bowl Victory Drive which Might have Been The Biggest Drive of the Century and of a Lifetime.

The Patriots had just Taken The Lead and Foles hit The Incredible Super Tight End Zach Ertz in The End -Zone with a 11-Yard Touchdown that he Temporarily Bobbled and then had To-Survive a huge replay review, by the Refs, but it was Eventually Ruled a Touchdown Catch and The Winning Touchdown to Beat The Patriots in an Amazing 41-33 Victory.

Although Foles was Presented The Super Bowl MVP Trophy, Ertz Deserved Some Type of an Award, because he was Equally Effective in The Victory.

In The Super Bowl Championship Game, Ertz Only Caught 7 Passes for 67-Yards, but Every Single Catch was a Monumental Catch. Of is 7 Catches, 5 Catches were for a First Down and an Incredible 4 Catches were on Third-Down and One Catch was on a Fourth Down.

Of the Seven Catches by Ertz, Three Catches led to Eventual Touchdowns and Three other Catches came on The Winning Touchdown Drive that gave The Eagles The Lead at 38-33 with 2:21 Left in the Game.

Ertz (6-5, 250, 4.56, 36, 4.47, 116, 24) was a Super-Star Tight End for Stanford and he was a #2 Draft Choice in The 2013 NFL Draft by The Eagles, but he also was The #35 Overall Draft Selection. Under The MEARS RATING Standards of Today, Ertz would have ha a Great 2,580 MEARS RATING.

On Wednesday, Prior to The Super Bowl Game, Ertz told The Media Reporters some Really Unbelievable Things About himselfErtz said that he Always Liked to watch The Opponent Tight Ends when they are on Offense and that would definitely include The Patriots Rob Gronkowski.

Gronkowski (#87) is an Unbelievable Physical Specimen,” Ertz Said. “Gronkowski is a Freak and a Beast after The Catch. He has been The Premier Tight End in The NFL for a Long Time and he will still be Producing The Huge Numbers, even without Tom Brady.”

The Two Recent Stories that I wrote about The Former New England Patriots All-Pro Slot Receiver Wes Welker and Current Patriots Super-Star Slot Receiver Danny Amendola were Both Incredible Stories about Two NFL Undrafted Free Agents.

The Nick Foles Story, however, is One of the Most Amazing and Incredible Stories in NFL History. His NFL Story Rivals Both Stories of Slot Receivers Wes Welker and Danny Amendola, which is Currently on This Facebook Website. Their NFL Stories are Mind-Boggling, but The Story of Foles might be even more Mind-Boggling and I will have his Incredible Story Up on this Website in a Few Days.

This Super Bowl Victory was The First Time since 1960, that The Philadelphia Eagles are NFL Champions. How Ironic is it that in 1960, My Brownwood High School Football Team also Won their First of Seven Texas State Football Championships.

The Incredible Danny Amendola Story! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

The Incredible Danny Amendola Story!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Image result for Dave Amendola Stories and Photos

If you know anything about The Incredible Super-Star Quarterback Tom Brady and his Unbelievable and Mind-Boggling History of him “Bringing His Team” Back to Victory After being Down, late in The Game, and Looking Like his New England Patriots would Surly Lose; and then if you are Watching the Game on TV or Listening to the Game on the Radio; it seemed like and you would Surely Believe that all throughout the AFC Championship Game that Brady was “Only Fiddling” with The Jaguars.

All-Pro Quarterback Tom Brady gets all of the Credit for the Huge Comeback Victory, but another Super-Star named Danny Amendola (#80) Deserved a Lot of Equal Credit. Amendola is one of my All-Time Favorite Players and it Dates Back to his Days at Texas Tech. First of all, Amendola is from The Woodlands which is a Suburb, in North Houston.

I got Really Interested in Armendola, when I moved from Quail Valley to The Woodlands, in 1997, just before we moved to Hammond, Louisiana and then I also found-out that he was born on November 2, on my Birthday.

Back to this Fabulous NFL AFC Championship Football Game, I was Driving on Interstate-10 from Mobile, Alabama to Baton Rouge, Louisiana as I was Driving Back Home from The Lestini Free Agent Super Combine and I Listened to the entire Game on the Radio and Amendola, although he only Caught 7 Passes for 84-Yards, he made all of the “Key-Catches” and that included Unbelievable First-Down Catches and The Game-Winning Four-Yard Touchdown, to Win The Game.

Led by Brady and Amendola, the New England Patriots escaped with a 24-20 Victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game at Gillette Stadium. Super-Star TE Rob Gronkowski (#87) did not play Against The Jaguars, but will Play in The Super Bowl.

It marked the 54th time that Brady has engineered a Game-Winning Performance in Leading The Patriots to a Victory from a Fourth-Quarter Deficit or tie. This one gave The Patriots a trip to Super Bowl LII to face The Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday  February 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

DANNY AMENDOLA CAREER STATS

High School – The Woodlands, Texas

Amendola Played for my Good Friend and Head Coach Weldon Willig. As a Senior, Almendola led his High School Team to their First-Ever 5A Texas State Championship Game, but they Lost The Championship to Galena Park North Shore. Amendola finished his Senior Season with 1,045-Yards Receiving, had 129-Yards Rushing, and Scored Eight Touchdowns.

College -Texas Tech

As a Freshman in 2004, Amendola saw limited duty on offense, but he was The Red Raiders Leading Punt Return Man and he was Named to the All-Big 12 First Team as Punt Return Specialist, but he did catch 13 Passes during the season, including one Touchdown Pass against Baylor.

Then, in 2005, Amendola made Another Incredible Play that led to Red Raider Victories. The First Play was Against Oklahoma, late in the Game, The Red Raiders had the Football and were trailing on a Fourth Down Play. Red Raider Quarterback Cody Hodges threw a Pass and the ball was tipped, and Amendola made a Leaping-Catch in traffic. He was tackled immediately and appeared to have been stopped just short of a first down. However, the spot was reviewed by the replay officials and the final spot of the ball resulted in a first down. The drive was kept alive and resulted in yet another disputed call was a Taurean Henderson Stretched over the Goal-Lline on the final play of the Game and gave The Red Raiders the Victory over The Sooners.

Image result for Danny Amendola Texas Tech Photos

As a Junior in 2006, Amendola (#20) had 48 Catches for 487-Yards and Five Touchdowns and then as a Senior in 2007, Amendola had 109 Catches for 1,245-Yards and Six Touchdowns. Amendola left Texas Tech early to train for the 2007 NFL Combine.

Amendola always was Compared to another Texas Tech Football Player, Wes Welker, who was a Super-Star for The Patriots, Miami Dolphins, and Denver Broncos.

As a New England Patriot, Welker led The NFL in receptions in 2007, 2009, and 2011. Welker holds the Four Highest Single-Season Reception Totals in New England Patriots History, as well as four of the top 10 receiving yardage totals, including The New England Patriot Franchise Record. Welker also holds the Patriot Franchise Records for most Receptions in a Single Game, Receiving Yards in a Single Game, Longest Reception of 99-Yards, and Career Receptions.

Welker, who had Three Consecutive 110-Reception Seasons and had Five Total. Welker is the First Wide Receiver in NFL History with at least Three 110-Reception Seasons, and the first with five 100-Reception Seasons. Welker was Selected to The NFL Pro Bowl, The All-Pro Team, or both, in every Season of his New England Patriots Career.

SIDEBAR: At the 2001 Alamo Bowl, my Son Eric and I were Special Guests of Texas Tech Head Coach Mike Leach and we met The Parents of Wes Welker. Although their Son was Selected as the State of Oklahoma Player of the Year in 1999, he was “Flying Under The Radar”, and was Never Offered a Scholarship, until Coach Leach Offered him a Chance for a Preferred Walk-on. In August, when a Couple Players decided to go elsewhere, Coach Leach Offered Welker a Full Football Scholarship.

Not only did Amendola and Welker both play for The Red Raiders, they are Very Similar in Size, Speed, and Big-Play Abilities. They also were both Great Players in High School, but were always “Flying Under The Recruiting Radar” and then were Stars at Texas Tech, both were “Undrafted Free Agents” and then became Super-Stars in The NFL.

Amendola (5-10, 190, 4.48, 32, 4.25, 103, 13) was an Undrafted Free Agent in 2008, while Welker (5-9, 195, 4.55, 30, 4.01, 113) was an Undrafted Free Agent in 2004. Both Super-Stars were a Little Short. Neither Players had Great Vertical Jumps. Amendola was a Little Faster than Welker in The Forty, but Welker was a Little Quicker than Amendola in The Pro Shuttle.

NFL

Almendola was Signed by The Dallas Cowboys on April 27, 2008. His attempt to make it to The NFL was featured on an HBO Special by the Name of Hard KnocksAmendola was cut by The Cowboys on August 30 and then was Re-Signed to The Dallas Cowboys Practice Squad after clearing waivers. He spent the entire 2008 Regular Football Season on The Cowboys Practice Squad and Never saw any Regular Season Action.

Then in August 2009, after his Contract had Expired with The Cowboys, Amendola was Signed to The Philadelphia Eagles Practice Squad on January 6, 2009Following the 2009 Season, Amendola was Re-Signed to a  Contract on January 19 and then was Waived during final cuts on September 5, 2009. He was Re-Signed to The Eagles Practice Squad on September 6, 2009, but Never played a down in the 2009 Regular Season.

Then, about Two Weeks Later, Amendola was Signed off of The Eagles Practice Squad by The St Louis Rams on September 22, 2009 and Played in his First NFL Game and he Caught 43 Passes for 326-Yards and One Touchdown as a Slot Receiver. Amendola also Returned 66 Kickoffs for 1,618-Yards and Returned 31 Punts for 360-Yards.

In 2011, Amendola Sustained an upper-arm injury in the first game of the season that resulted in him missing the remaining 15 games of the season after he underwent season-ending triceps surgery to repair the damage.

On September 16, 2012, Amendola had 12 Catches in the First Half in Second Game of The Season Against The Washington Redskins that tied the Record for most catches in a half set by Reggie Wayne in 2007. He finished the game with a Career-High 15 Catches for 160-Yards to go along with One Touchdown.

 On March 13, 2013, just hours after The New England Patriots Super-Star Slot Receiver Wes Welker Signed with The Denver Broncos, The Patriots Announced the Signing of Amendola and he Received a five-year contract for $28.5 Million, with $10 Million of that Money Guaranteed.

With Wes Welker perhaps opening the door for The Patented Patriots Slot Receiver, there was an opening for a player such as Amendola to get his foot in the door in the NFL and it Certainly did not hurt that both Welker and Amendola were almost Identical in Size, Speed, Skills, and from the same College, Texas Tech.

Danny Amendola is what our team is all about,” Tom Brady said. “Danny never makes excuses, does everything Coach Bill Belichick asks him to do, comes out for work every day with a great attitude. “And he makes the Biggest plays in the Biggest games. What more can you ask of a guy like that?”

He Caught Seven of Nine Targets for 84-Yards, and Two Touchdowns, including an Incredible 21-Yard Catch on 3rd Down and 18 with 10 Minutes left in the Game. Amendola also added a 3-yard run, a 20-yard throwback pass and two punt returns for 25 yards, the last of which went for 20 yards, giving him 132-Yards of Total Offense. 

The Two Touchdowns doubled his Regular Season Total. Any time The Patriots needed a big play, Amendola seemed to be catching the ball beyond the sticks. He and Brandin Cooks both stepped up after Super-Star Tight End Rob Gronkowski was lost with a first half concussionAmendola figures to be a key target against The Eagles and their Tough Defense in Super Bowl LII.

For a Player who has 18 Catches for 196-Yards this in This Postseason heading into Super Bowl Sunday, it’s hard to believe that Danny Amendola has never had more than 689-Yards Receiving  in a season.

What is Just Outstanding are The Stats of Tight End Rob Gronskowski, who is One of The Top Tight Ends in The NFL, if not The #1 Tight End in The League. In 14 Games, in 2017, Gronkowski (6-6, 265, 4.58, 33.5, 4.47, 119, 23) has Caught 69 Passes for 1,084-Yards and Eight Touchdowns with a 15.7-Yards Per Catch and 77.4-Yards Per Game.

With Rob Gronkowski being Cleared for The Sunday Super Bowl LII, Tom Brady will be able to Use Danny Amendola, Brandin Crooks, and Rob Gronkowski to The Fullest Extent Against The Philadelphia Eagles.

The Ben Wilkerson Intriguing Story! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

The Ben Wilkerson Intriguing Story! 
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Image result for Ben Wilkerson Photos

At the 2018 Lestini Free Agent Super Combine, we had Three Quarterbacks who had Originally Signed-Up to Participate, but due to the Cold Weather, only one Athletic Passing Quarterback was able to Participate and that was Ben Wilkerson (#5) from Fayette Ware, Tennessee and Alfred State, and for the Last Two Years, he has been Playing Football in Germany.

The Munich Cowboys in Germany in the German Football League was his Last Team to play with in 2017 and before that, he Played for The Franken Knights of Germany in 2016.

During the Quarterback Drills at The Lestini Super Free Agent Combine, I was able to Really get a chance To Evaluate Wilkerson and I was Very Impressed with him and his Accuracy in Hitting his Targets. In the Passing Drills, Wilkerson did not throw a Really Hard Pass, but his Accuracy was Outstanding. Check him out!

#44 Ben Wilkerson Lestini Camp 2018: https://youtu.be/AoGiUelBvGQ

In 2015, as a Senior at Alfred State, Wilkerson Passed for 1,212-Yards and 9 Touchdowns in Eight Games with a 151,9-Yards Per Game Average. His Best Game was against Maranatha Baptist University when he Passed for 329-Yards and Three Touchdowns. On his Highlight Film, Wilkerson is an Outstanding Athletic Quarterback who does not throw a Really Hard Pass, but he is Extremely Accurate in the Pocket and on Roll-outs.

Image result for Ben Wilkerson Photos

At The Lestini Super Combine, Wilkerson Ran a Great 4.76 Forty, an Outstanding 4.25 Pro-Shuttle, and another Outstanding 126-Inch Standing Broad Jump. At The Hudl Super Combine, he ran a 4.6 Forty and did an Outstanding 36-Inch Vertical Jump, so I Averaged his Two Forties and gave him a 4.68, along with his 36-Inch Vertical Jump.

Before the start of his Senior Year at Alfred State, his College Coach, Dan Levy Introduced the Idea to Wilkerson to Continue Playing Football in Europe after Graduation and Wilkerson was Really Excited about that Possibility and he Created a europlayers.com Account and started talking to teams. The Franken Knights became very Interested in him and they gave him a Tremendous Opportunity after Graduation and he Signed with them in 2016. This Small Medieval town of Rothenburg, Germany was a Beautiful Town and it was a Tremendous Experience for Wilkerson.

American Football is now an International Sport, and now being played in over an Incredible 85 Foreign Countries around the Globe. In these Various Different Countries, they have Developed Football to keep The Great Competition at a Very Strong Level.

Then The Outstanding American Football Players that are “Flying Under The Radar” with The NFL and CFL are now being Imported to all of the Various Foreign Country Football Teams to help their Build Their Competition. These American Football Players are now getting paid to play “The Game of Football” that they all love while seeing Various Parts of The World and getting Vast Experiences in Completely Different Cultures of The World.

The Munich Cowboys in Bavaria, Germany was the Second German Team for Wilkerson. It was a Large City that was Awesome with many different things to do outside of Playing Football.

D.J. CHARK SUPER SEVENTY-FIVE YARD TOUCHDOWN CLUB AND STORY! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

D.J. CHARK SUPER SEVENTY-FIVE YARD TOUCHDOWN CLUB AND STORY!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Under The Radar For Five Years!

Image result for D.J. Chark Photos

D.J. Chark was a Great Wide Receiver in High School from Alexander, Louisiana, but he was a Great Player that was “Under The Radar” before he Signed with LSU and New LSU Offensive Coordinator and Long-Time Good Friend Steve Ensminger (In Below Photo). In 2013, as a Senior in High School, Clark Caught 48 Passes for 554-Yards and Three Touchdowns.

Image result for Steve Ensminger Photos

Chark did not Score a Touchdown in 2014, but in 2015, he Scored a Touchdown, but it was not from a Pass-Catch, but on a 79-Yard Touchdown Run on an End-Around Reverse in The LSU Tigers 56-27 Victory over Texas Tech.

Then in 2016, Chark  finally caught his first pass in a Game in a Game #2 for 12-Yards in the 34-13 Win over Jacksonville State. Chark also Caught three more passes for 52-Yards with a 37-Yard Touchdown in the 23-20 Win over Mississippi State in game #3.

All this Time, Chark was a Tremendous and Athletic Super Wide Receiver who Apparently was Either Lost in the Shuffle on The Wide Receiver Board or Purposely Being Over-Looked on The Wide Receiver Board.

Before the 2017 Season Started, Chark had 26 Career Receptions for 466-Yards and Three Touchdowns. He also had Added Another 201-Yards Rushing and Three More Touchdowns. Then as a Senior, Chark Recorded 40 More Catches for 874-Yards, and another Three Touchdowns and had an Outstanding 21.9-Yards Per-Catch Average.

On his 66 Career Catches, Chark Averaged 20.1-Yards Per Catch and he was still a Huge Big-Play Threat, but, even in 2017, The LSU Quarterbacks still could Never get him the Football on a Consistent Basis. In order to Completely Utilize his Versatility, Chark Changed his Jersey Number from #82 to #7 for his Last Season.

With about 14-Minutes Left in the Auburn Game and The Auburn Tigers Winning 23-14, Chark Lined-Up to Return a Punt and The LSU Crowd was Pretty Calm and Praying for a Miracle. Then, all of a sudden, Chark Caught the Football on the 25-Yard Line, Back-Tracked about Six-Yards and Started Running Toward the Left Sideline, where a Great Punt Return Wall had Formed and he Returned the Punt 75-Yards for The LSU Touchdown.

Image result for D.J. Chark Senior Bowl PhotosOnce Chark (#7) got to the Sideline, after Scoring in the PhotoThe LSU Crowd Started to get Louder and Louder and Continued for 11.87 Seconds until he Reached the End-Zone to Make the Score 23-21 with 14:33 Left in the Game. Then, it got even Louder and Louder; while Making The LSU Tiger Stadium Shake and Continue to Shake after LSU Kicker Connor Culp Kicked the Winning 42-Yard Field Goal with 2:36 Left in the Game and then he Kicked another 36-Yard Insurance Field Goal with 38-Seconds Left in the Game to make the Final Score 27-23 and an LSU Victory.

I live about 15-Miles from The LSU Stadium and on Saturday Night on this Historic Night, I really believe that I was Still Hearing the LSU Crowd Hours after this Historic LSU Game and Victory.

In this Historic Victory, Chark Caught Five Passes for 150-Yards and Returned Two Punts for 83-Yards and a Touchdown, giving him 233-Yards of Total Offense and he was One of my Weekly College Football MVP’s.

Chark is the Only LSU Player in LSU History To Score on a Running Play and a Passing Play of 75-Yards or More. He Scored on an Incredible 79-Yard Touchdown Run in his “First-Career-Touch” in the 2015 Texas Bowl Victory over Texas Tech and then he Caught an 80-Yard Touchdown Pass against Southern Miss in 2016.

Super Wide Receiver D.J. Chark is an Extremely Explosive and Speedy Wide Receiver who “Can-Score” anytime that he “Touches the Football” and he was Supposed to be The LSU “Go-To” Receiver in 2017, but with the Pathetic and Erratic LSU Passing Game, The LSU Quarterbacks were NEVER able to Find-Him on their Pass PatternsAfter all of this, Chark still got invited to Play in The Senior Bowl.

With this Unbelievably Great Combination of Speed, Quickness, Pass Route-Running, and Tremendous Pass-Catching Abilities, he was Supposed to make LSU one of the Best Wide Receivers in the Country in College Football, and a Definite #1 NFL Draft Choice, but with the “Unsettled” LSU Offense and Quarterback Situation, Chark was Never able to be The All-American Wide Receiver until he got to The Senior Bowl.

Image result for D.J. Chark PhotosThe D.J. Chark 75-Yard Punt Return for a Touchdown Against Auburn was the SEC Play Of The Year and so Getting to Play in The Prestigious Senior Bowl was a Great Honor for him and “Very-Well” Deserved, although his Senior Stats were not Overly Awesome. Chark, however, did Catch 40 Passes and with a Great 21.9 Yards Per Catch Average.

Before getting to Mobile, and because of his Unbelievable Potential, I had Chark (6-3, 196, 4.32, 40, 4.02, 32) Rated and Ranked as a #1 Draft Choice in the 2018 NFL Draft, but most NFL Scouts had him Listed as a #2 Round Draft Choice. His 2,662 MEARS RATING is Off-The-Charts.

Chark Started to Impress the NFL Scouts in the First Practice on Monday and Finished The Game on Saturday with 5 Catches for a Career-High 160-Yards and Two Touchdowns of 63 and 75-Yards. Chark also Played on the Special Teams and made a Tackle on the Kickoff.

The Former LSU Wide Receiver Saved his Best Pass-Catching Performance for his Biggest Game and Most Important Game of his Career and in Front of a National TV Audience on The NFL Network and NFL Scouts in the Press Box, watching his Every Move.

With this Unbelievable and Mind-Boggling Performance, Chark was Selected as The South Team Co-MVP. His 160-Yards was more Receiving Yards than in any one game during his Entire LSU Career.

Another Skill that impressed The NFL Scouts was his Ability and Willingness to Play on Special Teams and Chark played on the Kickoff Team and he also practiced on The Punt Return Team.

Playing on Special Teams is a great way for young Potential NFL Players to turn heads of Many of The NFL Scouts in the NFL. Chark, Showing a  Willingness To Play on both The Kickoff Team and Punt Return Teams will Help All-Purpose Super-Star D.J. Chark to be Drafted on the First Day of The 2018 NFL Draft.

2017 ALL-AMERICAN TEAM, ALL BOWL TEAM, AND POLYNESIAN MVP’S! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

2017 ALL-AMERICAN ALL-BOWL
FOOTBALL TEAM

Image result for Calvin Ridley PhotosSuper Wide Receiver Calvin Ridley (#3) is the Top Wide Receivers in the Country and in The Draft. On Sunday, I said He Could Very Well be The Key Player in the National Championship Game and Be a Member of The First Team Offensive Bowl Team and he Caught The Tying Touchdown Pass !

By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Scouting Notes I: I have been Selecting College Football Weekly MVP Awards for The Last Fourteen Weeks of the Season, but The Player had to be on The Winning Team to Qualify for The Weekly MVP Award.

Scouting Notes II: During The Season, My Guidelines for Being a Weekly MVP were Set as Follows: Quarterbacks: 450-Yards of Total Offense – All-Purpose Backs: 200-Yards of Total Offense – Running Backs: 175-Yards of Offense – Wide Receivers: 175-Yards of Offense – Tight End: 100Yards of Offense – Defensive Line: 2 Sacks or 2 Turnovers –Linebacker:  15 Tackles or 2 Turnovers – Defensive Back: 2 Interceptions or 2 Turnovers. Must be on Winning Team!

Scouting Notes III: For the All-American Bowl Team, I have Slightly Varied The Standards for Each Position. OFFENSE Quarterbacks: Must have 400-Yards or Bowl MVP; All-Purpose Backs: Must have 200-Yards or Bowl MVP; Wide Receivers: Must have 175-Yards or Bowl MVP; Running Backs: Must have 150-Yards or Bowl MVP. DEFENSE – Linemen and Linebackers: Must have Two Sacks or Two Turnovers or Defensive MVP; and Defensive Backs: Must have Two Interceptions or Two Turnovers or Defensive MVPMust be on Winning Team!

Scouting Notes IV: If the Player fell short of the Standard for his Position, but was Outstanding in the Bowl Game and was First or Second Team All-American; in the MVP Column, there will be a First Team All-America (AA1) or Second Team All-American (AA2).

Related imageSPECIAL NOTE: Most of the Game for Alabama was an exercise in overcoming Adversity. Georgia dominated the first half, and Alabama Starting Quarterback Jalen Hurts could not get anything going, throwing  for 21-Yards and rushing for 47-Yards. So Coach Lou Saban turned to True Freshman Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (#13) and he ultimately tied the game with an Incredible Touchdown Pass to WR Calvin Ridley on 4th-and-4 with only 3:49 Remaining in the Game and then Tagovailoa hit another True Freshman WR DeVonta Smith for The Winning 41-Yard Touchdown.

Image result for Da'Ron payne PhotosDa’Ron Payne (#94) is the Most Incredible Defensive Lineman I have ever seen play. Payne is Incredible, because with only Three Career Sacks,  for The Crimson Tide, he is not going to “Put-Up” Huge Stats, but he is still The Most Dominating Defensive Player on the Field in Every Game. In the Clemson Game, Payne was Unbelievably Dominating On The Line of Scrimmage in Causing Havoc and then he was Even Better in The Championship Game Against Georgia on Every Single Play.

In 1967, The Alabama Sugar Bowl MVP, NFL Hall of Fame, and Four-Time All-Pro Quarterback (#12) Kenny “The Snake” Stabler

“Every Thing Happens For A Reason!”

AMAZING IRONIC THING I: How Ironic is it that The Late Kenny Stabler, a Left-Handed Quarterback for Alabama was Voted as The 1967 MVP of The Sugar Bowl and then Fifty Years Later, another Left-Handed Quarterback named Tua Tagovaloa, was Voted as The MVP of the 2018 National Championship Game, just after The Tide had Won The 2017 Sugar Bowl.

AMAZING IRONIC THING II: Roger Staubach and The Super Scout were both in The Navy and Played for Naval Air Station Football Teams. Staubach was The Team MVP when he played for The Pensacola Naval Air Station Football Goshawks and in 1967, they were The Continental United States Military Football Champions, beating both The Quantico Marines and Youngstown for The Football District Championship. The Super Scout was Stationed at The Guam Naval Hospital, but played for The Naval Air Station Flyers and they Won The Guam Rice Bowl as the Guam Military Football Champion. The NAS Flyers also Won The Tokyo, Japan Bowl as The Outer Continental United States Military Championship.

AMAZING IRONIC THING III: Later, both Staubach and The Super Scout worked for Head Coach Tom Landry of The Dallas Cowboys, who was in The United States Army Air Corps; while their Wives, Marianne Staubach of 53 Years and Ginger Emfinger of 46 Years were both Dallas Cowboys Social Directors for The Dallas Cowboy Football Players.

AMAZING IRONIC THING IV: My Full-Time job with The Dallas Cowboys was To Evaluate, Rate, and Rank College Football Players for The NFL Draft. My Boss, Gil Brandt, also asked me to Evaluate, Rate, and Rank all of The Top Texas HS Football Players for The 1976 Football Recruiting Season for Coaches. Then, when Coach Tom Landry asked me to Evaluate, Rate, Rank, and Color-Code Every Single NFL Player, I was Probably the First and Last Football Talent Scout on the Planet who Evaluated High School, College, and NFL in the same Football Season. After Finishing this Dallas Cowboys Scouting Project, Coach Landry Turned-To Defensive Coordinator Ernie Stautner and said: “Coach Stautner, I Think we have us a Real Super Scout!”

The New Alabama Super-Star Quarterback is Tua Tagovailoa and he just became The New Alabama Hero and Following in the Footsteps of his Great Mentor, Marcus Mariota, as he will become the Next Great Hawaiian Quarterback.

Tagovailoa (6-1, 219, 4.48) has spent most of his life following in the path of his Great Mentor, Tennessee Titans Super Quarterback Marcus Mariota and in The National Championship Game, Tagovailoa accomplished one Huge Accomplishment that that Mariota never did and that was To Lead his Team to a National Championship and Mariota could not be happier.

When Nick Saban decided to bench Starting Quarterback Jalen Hurts. Tagovailoa led the Crimson Tide from down 13-0 to force overtime. In OT, Tagovailoa bounced back from a sack that lost 16-Yards on first down to orchestrate an Unbelievable Game-Winning 41-Yard Touchdown one play later and Deliver a 26-23 National Championship Victory for The Tide.

DE Hercules Mata’ata

Image result for Hercules Mata'afa Photos

Hercules Mata’afa (6-2, 252, 4.62) is a Washington State Junior Defensive Tackle and Defensive End who is a Nightmare for all Opposing Offensive Lineman and Offensive Coordinators. Mata’afa was a Three Star Recruit coming out of Lahainaluna High School in Lahaina, Hawaii where he played Outside Linebacker and he was a two time State Finalist Wrestler.

Mata’afa was Red-Shirted as a Freshman, and then in his first season, as a Red-Shirt FreshmanMata’afa played in 13 games and had 32 Total Tackles and 11 of those Tackles were for a Loss; plus he had 7 Quarterback Sacks, one Forced Fumble, and a fumble recovery. In his Second season, as a Sophomore, he was named to the Lombardi, Bednarik and Polynesian College Player of the Year Watch Lists and finished as a Second Team All-PAC 12. In that Sophomore Year, Mata’afa played in 13 Game Season and recorded 47 tackles, had 13.5 Tackles for a Loss, and Five Quarterback Sacks.5 sacks.

Mata’afa is Considered to be one of the Very Best Football Players in the Pac-12 and he will be a Very High Pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. In 2017, as a Junior, Mata’afa led the PAC-12 with 21.5 Tackles for a Loss, had 9.5 Quarterback Sacks in 2017; however, he was not named as The PAC-12 Defensive Lineman of the Year; and that Award went to Fellow Polynesian, Washington Defensive Tackle, Vita VeaThe Associated Press, however, Awarded its PAC-12 Defensive Player of the Year Award to Mata’afa.

Hercules Mata’afa  has Declared to Enter The 2018 NFL Draft. Mata’afa was Named to The First-Team All-American Team by The Associated Press and he was also Selected to My All-American First Team. Mata’afa was also Selected to My Weekly MVP Award on Five Occasions.

This Outstanding Award is presented annually to The Most Outstanding Polynesian College Football Player that epitomizes great ability and integrity. University of Oregon and Tennessee Titans Quarterback Marcus Mariota was selected as the inaugural recipient of The Award in 2014.

CO-DEFENSIVE POLYNESIAN MVP
Noseguard Vita “The Beast” Vea

Vita Vea (6-5, 344, 5.2) arrived on The Washington Husky Campus as an “Under-The-Radar” Defensive Lineman in 2013, from California. This Monster Nose Guard was ranked as the 40th best player nationally at his position and the 65th best overall player in the State of California. He Enrolled in 2014, but Red-Shirted and so he was Out of Football for Two Years.

Vea hit the weight room, got in shape, learned the playbook and scheme, and slowly developed into a Very Key Defensive Player for one of the Elite Defenses in College Football. Vea played in every game during his Redshirt-Freshman Season, in 2015, for The Huskies and Recorded 17 tackles, 13 solo Tackles, and Three Tackles for a Loss.

Then in 2016, The Huge Role of Vea became very evident with Head Coach Chris Peterson and Defensive Coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski. Vea played in all 14 games for the Huskies, starting five of them as the Huskies won the Pac-12 and appeared in the College Football Playoffs in the 2016-17 season. In this Sophomore Season, Vea Recorded 39 Tackles, 6.5 Tackles for a Loss, and 4 Quarterback Sacks, just like in 2015.

Vea has now fully blossomed into a Real Bonafide First-Round Draft Prospect for The 2018 NFL Draft. Vea again put up big numbers from his Nose Tackle Position in The Washington 3-4 Defense as he Recorded 43 total tackles, career-high 30 solo tackles, had 5.5 Tackles for a Loss, four passes defended, and 3.5 sacks in 12 games for the Huskies.

In 2017, as a Junior, Vea was Voted to The PAC-12 All-Conference First Team; PAC-12 Defensive Lineman of the Year; and PAC-12 Player of the Year. He was also Named to The First Team All-American Team by USA Today, Sports Illustrated, and SB Nation.

FIRST TEAM ALL-AMERICAN  OFFENSE

Image result for baker mayfield new photos2017 Heisman Trophy Winner Baker Mayfield (#6) is one of The Greatest Quarterbacks that I have seen play since Dree Brees. I also really liked QB Mason Rudolph and both will be 2018 #1 Draft Choices in The 2018 NFL Draft.

Scouting Notes I: At least Four of My First or Second Team All-American Players Decided not to Play in Their Bowl Game with their Team, in Preparation for the 2018 NFL Draft, including DE Bradley Chubb of NC State; SS Derwin James of FSU; QB Josh Rosen of UCLA; and CB Denzel Ward of Ohio State; plus LB Malik Jefferson was Injured.

Scouting Notes II: The Last Column is My NFL Draft Choice Selection in the 2018 or 2019 Draft.

When Evaluating Bowl Game Players, I also went back into the 2017 Football Season to Evaluate their Season to see if they had Qualified for My Weekly MVP Awards. Most all of the NFL Scouts have Rated and Ranked QB Josh Rosen, QB Josh Allen, and Sam Darnold as three of the Best Quarterbacks in the 2018 NFL Draft, but Allen and Darnold did not Receive a Single Weekly MVP Award and Rosen only Received One Weekly Award against Texas A&M in the Opener when he Passed for 491-Yards.

Heisman Trophy Winner Baker Mayfield Received Six MVP Awards and Mason Rudolph and Lamar Jackson had Five MVP Awards; while Drew Lock, Luke Falk, Riley Ferguson, McKenzie Milton, John Wolford, and Quinton Flowers Received Four MVP Awards apiece.  Mike White, Connor Manning, Tyler Huntley, and Daniel Jones Received Two Weekly MVP Awards; while Josh Rosen, Brian Lewerke, Jason Driskel, Trace McSorley, and Nic Shimonek Received One MVP Award apiece.

The Unbelievable Josh Allen Story will Startle you. One Huge “Hint” about Josh Allen is the Fact that his Wyoming Football Team was so Fantastic on Defense, Allen Never Really had to throw for 300 or 400-Yards to Win a Football Game.

There were Three Unbelievable Defensive Super-Stars for Wyoming in the Potato Bowl and Allen did not have to even Pass for a 200-Yards to Win the Game, but he is one of the Best Quarterbacks that I have ever seen and he will be Either the #1 or #2 Quarterback Selected in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Some of the other Bowl Game Players who Qualified for a Weekly MVP Award included RB Devin Singletary, RB Zach Moss, WR Michael Gallup, OC Brian Allen, OC Mason Cole, OC Lamont Gaillard, OC Ryan Anderson, OC Austin Davis, OT Martinas Rankin, and OT Will Richardson.

2017 ALL-AMERICAN ALL-BOWL OFFENSIVE FOOTBALL TEAM By Super Scout Max Emfinger

2017 ALL-AMERICAN ALL-BOWL
OFFENSIVE FOOTBALL TEAM

By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Super All-American Wide Receiver Calvin Ridley (#3) of Alabama is one of the Top Wide Receivers in the Country and he Could Very Well be The Key Player in the National Championship Bowl Game and Be a Member of The First Team Offensive Bowl Team on Tuesday!

SPECIAL NOTE: Much of Game for Alabama was an exercise in overcoming adversity. Georgia dominated the first half, and Starting Quarterback Jalen Hurts could not get anything going, finishing 3-of-8 for 21-Yards while rushing for 47-Yards. So Coach Lou Saban turned to True Freshman Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who ultimately tied the game with an Incredible Touchdown Pass to Calvin Ridley on 4th-and-4 with just 3:49 Remaining in the Game.

Scouting Notes I: I have been Selecting College Football Weekly MVP Awards for The Last Fourteen Weeks, but The Player had to be on The Winning Team to Qualify for The Weekly MVP Award.

Scouting Notes II: During The Season, My Guidelines for Being a Weekly MVP were Set as Follows: Quarterbacks: 450-Yards of Total Offense – All-Purpose Backs: 200-Yards of Total Offense – Running Backs: 175-Yards of Offense – Wide Receivers: 175-Yards of Offense – Tight End: 100Yards of Offense – Defensive Line: 2 Sacks or 2 Turnovers –Linebacker:  15 Tackles or 2 Turnovers – Defensive Back: 2 Interceptions or 2 Turnovers. Must be on Winning Team!

Scouting Notes III: For the All-American Bowl Team, I have Slightly Varied The Standards for Each Position to Qualify for The All-American All-Bowl Football Team. OFFENSE Quarterbacks: Must have 400-Yards or Bowl MVP; All-Purpose Backs: Must have 200-Yards or Bowl MVP; Wide Receivers: Must have 175-Yards or Bowl MVP; Running Backs: Must have 150-Yards or Bowl MVP. DEFENSE – Linemen and Linebackers: Must have Two Sacks or Two Turnovers or Defensive MVP; and Defensive Backs: Must have Two Interceptions or Two Turnovers or Defensive MVPMust be on Winning Team!

Scouting Notes IV: If the Player fell short of the Standard for his Position, but was Outstanding in the Bowl Game and was First or Second Team All-American; in the MVP Column, there will be a First Team All-America (AA1) or Second Team All-American (AA2).

On Offense, The Buckeyes Three All-American Offensive Lineman of OC Billy Price, OG Michael Jordan, and OT Jamarco Jones, also Completely Dominated the Southern Cal Defense.

There is something Very Special about The TCU Horned Frogs and Their Big Comeback Victories in The Alamo Bowl Game. Never count out The Frogs.

In 2015, The Frogs Stormed back from being down 31-0 to win The Alamo Bowl Game. They did it again Thursday night, rallying from 21-3 deficient to beat The #15 Stanford Cardinals by a 39-37 Comeback Victory behind Super-Star Quarterback, Kenny Hill, who had another Incredible Game.

Hill landed the Biggest Plays of the Game, but he also had help from Two other Super-Stars in Senior Desmond White and True Freshman Jalen Reagor. Hill Scored The First Horned Frog Touchdown on a 6-Yard Scramble, at the End of the Second Quarter, giving Stanford a 21-10 Lead at Halftime.

Then, his Incredible 27-Yard “Throw-Back” Touchdown Pass, down the Left Sideline, from Wide Receiver Desmon White to make it 27-16 in the Third Quarter, but Hill “Returned The Favor” as he Hit White on an 11-Yard Touchdown to make it 28-23. Stanford then kicked a Field Goal to to Increase their lead to 31-23.

Hill “Put An Unbelievable Charge” into The TCU Fans in the Fourth Quarter with the “Play of The Game” as he Found True Freshman Jalen Reagor, down the Right Sideline with an Incredible 93-Yard Touchdown Pass to Bring The Stanford Lead to 31-29 and Bring The Predominantly Horned Frog Fans in The Alamodome to Attention.

After this Incredible Play, Desmond White Struck-Again as he Returned a Punt 76-Yards for a Touchdown to give The Frogs their First Lead at 36-31, but Stanford Scored again to give the another Go-Ahead Lead at 37-36.

Then Hill led The Frogs down the Field and gave Cole Bunce a Chance to Kick the Winning 33-Yard Field Goal with just over 3 minutes left after Stanford had retaken the lead and With an Apparent Victory.

It was the second time this season that Hill had a Rushing Touchdown, Passing Touchdown, and Receiving Touchdown, in the Same Game, providing a Memorable Finale to his Great College Career. Hill began his career at Texas A&M, where he succeeded Heisman Trophy Winner Johnny Manziel in 2014, but Transferred to TCU after a Tough First Season with The Aggies.

Although, he was from the Area, Iowa All-Purpose Back and Super-Star Akrum Wadley (#25) had never been to Yankee Stadium, even though he grew up about 20-Miles across the river in New Jersey, but on his first visit, he seemed to bring out the whole town of Newark to cheer him and The HawkeyesWadley gave away 40 or more Game Tickets, and he certainly did not disappoint any of his his hometown fans who were Freezing inside Yankee Stadium to Watch him play.

In this Frigid Pinstripe Bowl Game against Boston College, Wadley Rushed for 88-Yards and a Touchdown; Caught 2 Passes for 24-Yards; and Returned 5 Kickoffs for 171-Yards, giving him an Incredible 283-Yards of Total Offense in the 27-20 Victory. This Bowl Game Sensation was Awarded with The MVP Trophy and also helped Snap a Five-Game Bowl Losing Streak.

Boise State Committed two turnovers that were returned for Touchdowns in the final minute of the First Half, turning a 24-0 Rout in the making into a competitive 24-14 contest and allowing Oregon back into the game, but without any Special Speech from their Head Coach, the Broncos regrouped and responded.

Super Wide Receiver Cedric Wilson (#1) Caught 10 Passes for 221-Yards and a Touchdown; Freshman Free Safety Kekula Kaniho Returned an Interception 53-Yards for a Touchdown to go with his 3 Solo Tackles and a Sack; and All-American Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch led The Broncos Defense with 12 Tackles, including 10 Solo Tackles, 3 Tackles for a Loss, and 1 1/2 Sacks as #25 Boise State beat Oregon 38-28 in the Las Vegas Bowl.

The Georgia Bulldogs are the Very First Non-Alabama SEC Team to make the College Football Playoff.

4. Alabama (11-1) – There was Absolutely No Way the Playoff Selection Committee could “Leave-Out” The One-Loss Alabama Crimson Tide. Before they loss at Auburn, The Crimson Tide had been Ranked #1 or #2 in Every Single 2017 Playoff Ranking. The Auburn Tigers were The Hottest Team in the Country in November, taking down two #1 Teams at home, so a 26-14 loss to Auburn certainly isn’t the worst loss among the teams in the playoff field.

After Ohio State beat Wisconsin in The Big-10 Conference Championship Game, the Biggest Question was whether the Committee would Value Better Wins and a Conference Championship for Ohio State or Alabama with fewer losses and perhaps a more Convincing Eyeball Test as being a Better Team than Ohio State with Two Losses.

Despite not playing in the SEC Championship and a relative lack of perceived quality wins, Alabama beat Florida State when The Seminoles were ranked #3 in the AP Top 25 Poll and In addition, had wins over LSU and Mississippi State.

It took an 11th Hour Decision by the Selection Committee to keep The Alabama Playoff Streak Alive, as The Crimson Tide made the Playoffs for the Fourth Consecutive Year. This is their lowest final ranking in the playoff era, after entering the playoff ranked No. 1 in 2014 and 2016, and No. 2 in 2015.
