WITH SO MUCH RAIN AND FLOODING, 2016 HS FOOTBALL HAS BEEN STRANGE!

I live in Plaquemine, Louisiana and although Plaquemine has not Flooded like it did in the Baton Rouge Central, Baton Rouge Woodlawn, and in the Denham Springs Area, we have had To Endure Rain every single day for over 30 Days and it’s Raining Right Now in Plaquemine.

On the Last Weekend in August, in the Baton Rouge Area, it Rained almost all day, but there were 12 Really Great Football Jamborees. Some were on Friday and some were on Saturday and so I had to make some tough decisions on which ones that I wanted to attend.

I definitely wanted to see the Summer 7on7 Super-Star Quarterback Patrick Arnold (6-4, 200, 4.6); Super-Star Running Back Larry Green (5-9, 185, 4.42, 36, 4.16); and Super Star Flanker Tywon Buckley (6-4, 200, 4.5, 39, 4.2, 124) at Baton Rouge Tara. The Tara Offensive Coordinator, Coach C.J. Maiden, is one of my All-American Bowl Game Coaches and he had been telling me about how these three Great Players were and “Flying Under the Radar” with College Coaches and Recruiting Services. Due to the Flooding in his area, Buckley had just Transferred to Tara.

On Friday Night, Four Weeks Ago, in the East Baton Rouge Kickoff Classic, Tara played Baton Rouge Glen Oaks in Two-Twelve Minute Quarters after the McKinnley and Baton Rouge Woodlawn Game at Flood-Stricken Woodlawn Stadium.

Then on the Following Saturday Night, in the Corey Webster Foundation Classic, a Very Talented Madison Prep Team played Baker and then played another Very Talented Team, in 2015 1A State Champion Southern Lab. I definitely wanted to see that Madison Prep and Southern Lab Game.

I have been to almost every Football Stadium in the Baton Rouge Area, but it has been a few years since I have been to the Woodlawn Football Stadium and on Friday Night, I got lost. So when I finally got to the Woodlawn Football Stadium, it looked like about a Thousand People were waiting to get into the Stadium. I had to walk about a Mile to get into the Stadium, but I finally made it.

With all of this Rain in this Woodlawn Area, there was obvious a lot of Flood Damage. I did not take the above Flood Damage Photo, but when I got lost trying to find the Stadium, this is exactly what I saw on Friday Night and on the following Sunday, I did go back to this Woodlawn Area and took some Great Photos. The Photos  I took were in the Maison Orleans Sub-Division and Antioch and Profit Avenue.

Then, On the following Saturday, it Rained again all day in Plaquemine, but I was hoping and Praying that it was not Raining in Baton Rouge or that it would stop before the Games Started. So when I left Plaquemine, it was still Raining. There were a lot of Talented Players on both the Madison Prep and Southern Lab Teams, but just before this game, the Southern Lab Team played Baker.

Southern Lab drove 80-Yards in Five Plays to Score the only Touchdown of the Game, culminating in a Beautiful 20-Yard Quick Slant Touchdown Pass from Junior QB Quincy Fillmore to Super-Star WR Xavier Bell (5-9, 170, 4.33) to put Southern Lab ahead 6-0. Then, Super-Star DE/FB Shannon Forman (6-2, 265, 4.7) ran for the Two-Point Conversion to make the Final Score at 8-0.

After Madison Prep beat Baker 22-8 and Southern Lab beat them 8-0; the Big Game of the night for the Corey Webster Championship was going to be Great. The Key to that Game was probably going to be Madison Prep Super-Star QB Edwin Kleinpeter (6-2, 223, 4.6) who completed 6 of 7 Passes for 117-Yards and a Touchdown in the First Game or his Super-Star WR Brian Savoie (#3 Below), who Caught Four Passes for 61-Yards and a Touchdown.

So the Big Game got Started and with only 7:18 Left in the Game, Madison Prep Kicker Keyonne Hawkins Kicked a 21-Yard Field Goal for a 3-0 Lead. A few plays later, Southern Lab Junior Super-Star WR Cameron Thomas (6-4, 210, 4.5) Caught an Incredible 80-Yard Touchdown Pass from Junior QB Fillmore (6-0, 170, 4.8) to give Southern Lab a 8-3 Lead after their Two-Point Conversion was good, and then there was only 6:21 Left in the Game.

What happened next, you will not believe. You can go to a Hundred Games and NEVER see what just happened on the very next play. Remember the previous play was an 80-Yard Touchdown Pass. So with 6:06 Left, Madison Prep gets the Football back on the 20-Yard Line and Kleinpeter hit his Favorite Receiver Savoie on another Unbelievable 80-Yard Touchdown Pass witch makes Two Consecutive 80-Yard Touchdown Passes and after the Extra Point Kick, Madison Prep Lead 10-8 and that was also the Final Score.

Kleinpeter and Savoie were Incredible, but they were not the only Super-Stars that I really liked. Two Offensive Linemen: OT E’Darius Anderson (6-4, 320, 5.1) and OC Donell Hendrix (6-3, 335, 5.3); Two Defensive Linemen: DE Bryan Jones (6-6, 255, 4.6) and DE Troy James (6-3, 265, 4.6); Two Wide Receivers: Brian Savoie (5-9, 175, 4.33) and Lyndon Rash (6-1, 186, 4.42); and Two Defensive Backs who are Brothers: including FS Tazmine Walker (6-3, 190, 4.45) and Junior CB/RB Tyrese Walker (5-9, 175, 4.45) who both made two of the Hardest Hitting Tackles of the game. Jones is Committed to Ole Miss and James is Committed to Kansas.

Four Southern Lab Defensive Players were Outstanding, including NG/DT Chad Brown (6-1, 285, 4.94) who made Six Tackles; DE Shannon Forman (6-2, 285, 4.8) who also had Six Tackles and 3 Quarterback Hurries; OLB Cameron Williams (6-1, 220, 4.6) who had a Key Fumble Recovery and Numerous Tackles; and CB Da’Vonte White (6-1, 180, 4.42) who made plays all over the Field. Bell was also Outstanding on Defense.

Two Weeks ago, my plans were to Watch the First Half of the Madison Prep and White Castle Game and then drive back to Plaquemine for the Second Half of the Plaquemine and Port Allen Game. So, I drove to White Castle, only about Five Miles from Plaquemine, to see the Madison Prep and White Castle Game. I got to the 7:00 Game at around 6:00 and had a Great Opportunity to Take some Photos and Talk to the Madison Prep Super-Stars.

Looking back to the 2015 Game, and I was at that GameSavoie Caught Four Passes for an Incredible 285-Yards and Four Touchdowns. In that 48-20 Madison Prep Victory over White Castle, Kleinpeter Completed 8 of 12 Passes for 295-Yards and Four Touchdowns.

This year, Madison Prep Received the Opening Kickoff and on their First Play from Scrimmage, Savoie ran for a 65-yard Touchdown. Then after Recovering a Fumble on the White Castle First Play, Junior RB Tyrese Walker Raced 35-Yards for another Touchdown, giving Madison Prep a 14-0 Lead with 11:08 Left in the First Quarter. White Castle Received their Second Kickoff and Two Plays later, White Castle Fumbled again with their Third Fumble and as it started rain, I had seen enough and so I left the Game and Headed back to Plaquemine to see the Second Half of the Plaquemine and Port Allen Game.

Before I left White Castle, I must say that White Castle is not without some Great Super-Star Players, including OT Columbus Willis (6-6, 320, 5.3); DE/TE Ja’Tyre Carter (6-6, 250, 4.8); and LB Malik White (6-1, 210, 4.6). I did not get to talk to these Players, but they were very impressive in Pre-Game Warm-Ups, especially Carter.

As I got to the Parking Lot, it stopped Raining and I thought that was a Great Sign, but as I got about halfway back to Plaquemine, it Started to Rain again.  Then, as I got to the Plaquemine City Limits, it was Pouring-Down Rain so hard, I could not see the car in front of me and I went straight home and got to my home at 7:35, but without getting to see Plaquemine RB Kevin Dominique (6-1, 205, 4.42, 43, 3.98) run for 232-Yards and Score Three Touchdowns in a 32-6 Victory over Port Allen.

Then, Last Week, I had Planned to go to the 5A East Saint John Game, at Home, in Reserve, against 2A Madison Prep. I knew that this was going to be a Sensational Game and I did not want to miss it. I had to run some Errands in Baton Rouge, so I left Plaquemine aeound 3:30, thinking I would have plenty of time to get to Reserve.

Along with the Five Players from Madison Prep in our 2017 All-American Bowl Game, East Saint John also had Four or Five Players in our Game, including Super-Star QB Marquise Darensbourg (6-1, 210, 4.56, 36, 4.3); Super-Star WR C.J. Turner (6-2, 185, 4.38, 38, 4.18, 131, 19); FS Shayhan Williams (6-0, 185, 4.42, 36, 4.2); DE Demond Stewart (6-3, 265, 4.7); and NG Myles Meyers (5-2, 315, 5.2).

When I left Plaquemine at 3:30, it was Not Raining, but when I got to Baton Rouge, it started To Rain again. I actually was able to leave Baton Rouge at around 5:30 and I was on Schedule to get to Reserve before the Game started at 7:00, but the closer I got to Reserve on I-10 South to New Orleans, the harder the Rain started coming down. I finally got to Reserve around 7:30 and it was Pouring Down Rain and so I turned around and came back home to Plaquemine.

As in the week before, I missed the 16-14 UPSET Victory for Madison Prep over East Saint John, and I also missed Super-Star Savoie again as he caught a 39-Yard Touchdown from Super-Star Kleinpeter in the First Quarter and then caught another Touchdown Pass of 11-Yards on a  Screen Pass from Kleinpeter.

All of this brings us the Friday Night Games of September 23. Since I did not get to see East Saint John Players play, I originally had decided to go back to Reserve to see them play against H.L. Bourgeois. I had already worked-up my Two Clipboards of Prospects for the two teams in the East Saint John Game, but then my Wife got sick and I decided to stay closer to Home if she needed me.

With this in mind, I decided to go to the Plaquemine and Riverside Game in Plaquemine for the First Half and then go to the Brusly and Donaldsonville Game in nearby Brusly for their Second Half. Both Plaquemine and Brusly already have Players in our 2017 All-American Bowl Game and although I have watched them on their Great Highlight Film, I wanted to see them play in person and maybe get a chance to talk to them.

My wife needed some Medicine and it took me a little longer than I had expected and so I got off from home later than I had wanted. I had already planned to see Plaquemine play against Tara on October 28 and so I headed to Brusly.

When I got to Brusly High School Stadium, there were cars parked everywhere, but I was given a Parking Spot in Handicap Parking, right by the Stadium Entrance Door. The Lady at the Entrance Gate also gave me a Free Game Program and I was Excited and Happy to be at the Brusly Game.

The Main Brusly Player that I wanted to see play was Zavian Bell (6-0, 220, 4.45, 36, 4.2, 120) who plays both Outside Linebacker and Running Back and who I have Invited to Play in our All-American Bowl Game.

There are Four other Teams in the Baton Rouge Area that have some Tremendous, Talented Players, include Scotlandville, Zachary, Parkview Baptist, and Christian Life. Scotlandville and Zachary will play on October 7, and I plan on being at that Game. I also plan on being at the Parkview Baptist Game at Port Allen on November 4.

Many Players have Told Me that they wanted to play in our All-American Bowl Game and I sent them an Invitation, thinking that if they wanted to play, they would turn-in their Paperwork, but after two or three weeks without their Returned Paperwork, I have to really Question their Intent on Playing. Those who have not Returned their Paperwork, after Two or Three Weeks, I have taken the AA off of their Name as Playing in our Game.

The Following List is an Updated and Current List of Invitations sent to Super-Star Players and Those Players with a AA are the Players, that have returned their Paperwork and are playing in the Game.

HOW THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM WORKS AND WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT!

THIS IS NOT THE FIRST GOLD, BLUE, AND RED RATING SYSTEM!

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.”

GOLD = NFL All-Pro Player
BLUE = NFL Future All-Pro or Past All-Pro Player
RED = Average NFL Player
GREEN = Rookie or Second Year Player in League

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 50 Players; so I evaluated around 1,400 Players. It took me about three weeks, but the Flip-Chart was ready before The Fourth Game Against the New York Giants.


Hall of Famers: Coach Tom Landry, First Super Scout Gil Brandt, and Dallas Cowboys Owner Tex Schramm

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 Huge 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!”

DEVELOPING THE MEARS FOOTBALL RATING SYSTEM

The 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 Really “Accurate Measurables” are recorded on the NFL Players Before The NFL Scouting Combine. It’s easy to say someone can run a 4.4 or a 4.3 Forty, but before an Accurate Hand-Held Timing by a Professional Talent 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, before the Annual NFL Scouting Combine and before entering the NFL Draft, will hire a Sports Trainer to train them and teach them how to do a proper Vertical Jump, Pro-Agility Shuttle, and a Standing Broad Jump.

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 Super Combines. If a High School 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 him a MEARS RATING if he does not have Valid and Accurate Measurables? The answer is Very Simple! If you have some of his Speed Measurables, you can approximate his other Speed Measurables based upon his Game Film Evaluation or Actual Game Evaluation, giving him the Maximum Points in most of his Speed 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 Football Player or College Football Player will list what he thinks is his best Forty Time as a 4.8 and then twenty minutes later runs a 4.6 Forty or better. Also, you must keep in mind that with a little instruction and training, most High School and College Football Players can improve their Speed Measurables by Two and Three Tenths of a Second and can improve on their Distance Measurables by as much as Six to Eight Inches. Some of this Information may not mean as much to you as other parts, but all Football Players and Coaches still need to understand How and Why the MEARS RATING SYSTEM was Developed and how it Evolved over the Years.

Before I Started Using my original MEARS RATING SYSTEM, I decided that it needed a little Tweaking and so I called one of my old Coaching Friends, The Legendary and long-time Strength Coach and Genius, Boyd Epley. Before Coach Epley (In The Photo Below) was hired by Legendary, Nebraska Cornhuskers Head Coach and Athletic Director Bob Devaney in September 1969, as The Nebraska Strength and Conditioning Coach, College Football Teams in America did not have Strength and Conditioning Coaches and this type of coach was non-existent.


Coach Boyd Epley

For years it had existed largely as an underground movement at only a handful of schools like a Knights Templar-esque Secret Society, but Coach Epley changed all of that and he is still considered today to be the Father and Founder of the new Strength and Training methods that we now use today. Coach Epley was the one person that I wanted to help me with my Tweak. In 1978, Coach Epley formed the National Strength And Conditioning Association and he is still their Director.

Max, we have got to set a Standard for every Position for every Set of Measurable that we test at a Super Combine,” said Coach Epley. Then we worked on a Set of Standards for each position. For Example: “The Standard for an Offensive Tackle, has always been 6-5 and 275 for Forty Years. The Players are always going to get Bigger, Stronger, and Faster, but we don’t need to keep changing the Medium Standard, said Coach Epley. Our MEARS RATINGS will always continue to get Higher as the Players will achieve to get Bigger, Stronger, and Faster.” Recently, I Tweaked the OT Height to 6-4.

This Formula is based on each individual positions and is based on a MEDIUM STANDARD for that position for every test or Measurable in a Super Combine. So, each position has a standard for each test and Measurable. A player will get plus points for every tenth of a second over the position standard, but a maximum of 400 points. Example: Trent Williams ran a 4.79 Forty and the standard for an Offensive Lineman is 5.3, he received Maximum 400 points.

Forty-Yard Dash (40) is a test of raw speed, stamina, and explosiveness. It is a test of pure speed from Point A to Point B. Technique is also very important. This is a very good test of measure for all skill players who may have to run 40-yards in a game. The Original Running Back standard was a 4.6 Forty, but many Great Running Backs are too “Banged-Up” at the End of the Season, so I Recently Changed the Standard to 4.7. Running Backs get ten points per each tenth over the standard. Example: In the 2010 NFL Super Combine, Trindon Holliday ran a 4.21 Forty and got 400 points; while our 2013 Game MVP Josh Cleveland ran a 4.29 Forty and he also received 400-points.

Patrick Peterson (6-0, 219, 4.31) of LSU was a Real Super Combine Freak. There may have never been a player who had tested as well at every Measurable, up to 2011, for his position as Peterson was able to do at the 2011 NFL Super Combine. First of all, how many Cover Cornerbacks have ever weighed-in at 219 pounds?

Most Cornerbacks are streamlined to be fast, quick, and light. So then when he ran a 4.31 Forty and did a 4.07 Pro-Agility Shuttle, you will have to admit that he’s a Super Combine Freak. Then Peterson did a 38-inch Vertical Jump; did a 126 Standing Broad Jump; and 15 Reps of 225 on the Bench Press, and set a World Record at the Time with a 2,048 MEARS RATING. Later, in the 2011 NFL Super Combine, Cam Newton broke Patterson’s MEARS WORLD RECORD with a 2,070 MEARS RATING. Jake Locker Recorded a 2,057 MEARS RATING. Under 2016 Standards, Peterson would have Recorded a 2,418 MEARS RATING and Newton an Incredible 2,492 MEARS RATING at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine.

Before the 2012 Scouting Combine, only two Linebackers had ever Recorded a 2,000 MEARS RATING. In the 2011 NFL Super Combine, MLB Martez Wilson (6-4, 250, 4.42) of Illinois and OLB Von Miller (6-3, 248, 4.41) of Texas A&M recorded 2,000 MEARS RATING as Wilson got a 2,030 MEARS RATING and Miller recorded a 2,012 MEARS RATING. With the 2016 Standards, Miller would have Recorded an Incredible 2,492 MEARS RATING.

Denver Broncos 2011 #1 Draft Choice and 2016 Super Bowl MVP Von Miller came to the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine and he Recorded some Incredible Measurables, including a 4.49 Forty weighing 246-Pounds; a 37-Inch Vertical Jump; a 4.06 Pro-Shuttle; and a 126-Inch Standing Broad Jump; giving him his 2,492 MEARS RATING.

Then, in the 2012 NFL Super Combine, Luke Kuechly (6-3, 242, 4.49) of Boston College recorded a 38-inch Vertical Jump; did a 4.12 Pro-Shuttle; did 123-Inch Standing Broad Jump; and did 27 reps of 225 on the Bench Press for an Outstanding 2,469 MEARS RATING.

Vertical Jump The Vertical Jump (VJ) is a test of leg explosiveness, power, and quickness. Technique is also very important in this test. This test is a good measurable for Wide Receivers, Cornerbacks, and Safeties. The standard for an Offensive Lineman is a 24-Inch Vertical Jump, but have Recently Changed to a 22. Each inch over the standard, a player gets 20 points. Southern Cal DE Nick Perry did an incredible 38.5-inch Vertical Jump and received 290 points. The Defensive Back Standard for the Vertical Jump is a 28. Eric Berry did a 43-Inch Vertical Jump and received 300 points; Trindon Holliday did a 42-inch Vertical Jump and received 280 points; and in 2015, Byron Jones did a 44.5 VJ and Received 330 Points.

Pro-Agility Shuttle – The Pro-Agility Shuttle (SH) is a test of agility, speed, lateral quickness, change of direction, and overall body coordination. Technique is also very important is this test. An athlete should be able to do this test in about two tenths of a second faster than he can run a Forty-Yard Dash. For Example: Trent Williams did an Incredible 4.51 Pro-Agility Shuttle and the medium standard for an Offensive Lineman is a 5.2. The maximum number of points that is given in this test is 400 points, so Williams got Maximum points.

Standing Broad Jump – The Standing Broad Jump (SBJ) is a test that is similar to the Vertical Jump in that it measures how far you can jump instead of how high. It is also similar to the long jump in track, except the player will not get a running start, but rather jump from a standing position. It measures explosion, power, quickness, and lower body strength. It is a great measure for Running Backs, Tight Ends, and Linebackers. Example: WR Armand Williams did a sensational 139-inch Standing Broad Jump at my 2009 Zachary, Louisiana Top Gun Combine. The Standard for a Wide Receiver is 102-Inches and he got 5 points for every inch over 105, so Williams got 185 SBJ Points. Armand Williams also did a 42-inch Vertical Jump to go with his Incredible SBJ and was given 280 VJ Points. He then played in the 2010 All-American Bowl Game Classic and caught four passes for 218-yards and a Touchdown and was selected as the Game MVP. Williams was Offered a Late Scholarship by LSU and Signed with the Tigers. In the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine, Cornerback Byron Jones was Incredible as he Recorded an Unbelievable World Record 147-Inch Standing Broad Jump Record. The Cornerback Standard is 102-Inches and he Received 225 Points.

Bench Press – The Bench Press (BP) is a test of pure strength and stamina. The test measures how many bench press reps a high school or college athlete can do of 185 pounds or 225-pounds. Technique is also very important. This test is a good measure for every player on the football field although Quarterbacks, Wide Receivers and Cornerbacks do not need to excel in this event. College and Pro Players use 225 pounds on the bench press instead of 185 pounds. The points do not change. Each Athlete gets 20 points for every rep over his standard, but a maximum of 200-points. Example: Lamarr Houston did 30 Reps of 225 Pounds on the Bench Press and got 120-points. In our 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic, OC Ryan McMahon, who later started four years for Florida State, did 48-Reps and got the maximum 200-points. In our 2013 All-American Bowl Game Classic, OC Barry James and DE Charles Bender did 40 Reps of 185-Pounds and they both received the maximum 200-points.

Technique – Technique is also very important in every single event, especially in the running events. The Pro-Shuttle and Standing Broad Jump is all Technique. Getting a bad start in the other running events can make the difference in a great timing or a poor timing. Although the SPARQ RATING SYSTEM became popular, it still had some flaws, because the SPARQ RATING SYSTEM was not originally based on a player’s position, but his weight. If the System is not based on the Position of the Player, then how are you going to decide who the best Player is at that Position? If the RATING SYSTEM is based on the Player Position, you’ll know how he relates.

If you have only one Draft Choice or Scholarship left, the MEARS RATING SYSTEM will give you the highest rated player regardless of position. To get this MEARS RATING, more information, including Height, Weight, Forty, Vertical Jump, Pro-Shuttle, Standing Broad Jump, and 185-Pound Bench Press Reps for High School Football Players and 225-Pound Bench Press Reps for College Football Players are put into the formula and all of this is based upon the standard for his position. “You really don’t need the Three Cone Drill, because it is not needed if you use the Pro-Agility Shuttle with the other Measurables,” said Coach Boyd Epley.

Quarterbacks, Linemen, and Kickers are always going to be hard to measure, because they do not go to Super Combines or they do extremely poor at the Combine,” said Coach Epley. So these three positions must be evaluated very carefully on film or in person and so their MEARS is going to be estimated. Max, you will learn how to evaluate them and give them an honest rating.” Recently, if I really like an Offensive or Defensive Lineman, I will give him 300-Bonus Speed Points.

I have become Twitter Friends with most all of these Players who are very Interested in playing in our All-American Bowl Game. I just Counted 116  Players that I Follow and they Follow Me on my Max Emfinger Scout Twitter Account. I am also Following Another 30-40 Players on Twitter.

Although Stewart scored on his First Interception, his Second Interception was probably the most important. With his Team leading 26-19 with 1:19 Left in the Game, St Augustine had moved the ball from their own 6-Yard Line to the McDonogh 35 Nine-Yard Line on 15 Plays, but Stewart jumped in front of a pass for his Game-Saving Interception in his own End-Zone and Saved the 26-19 Victory.

Tara, Madison Prep, and Southern Lab Are Impressive And Talented! By Max Emfinger

3️⃣

Tara Super RB Larry Green (#3) Rushed for 128-Yards and Two Touchdowns!

Tara, Madison Prep, and Southern Lab Are Impressive And Talented!

Every year, for the last 13 years, I have started Evaluating Top High School Football Players with Outstanding Measurables and then Rate and Rank all of them with my MEARS RATING SYSTEM and Start to Invite the Top Rated Players to play in my Annual All-American Bowl Game.

It is also very important for me to also see these Top Players, not only on their Highlight Film, but to see as many of these Players, live and in Real Games. Also, in Louisiana, before the actual Football Season starts, there are numerous Football Jamborees and Classics that give the Players and Coaches, an opportunity to Practice against some other Players that are not on their Team.

On the Last Weekend in August, in the Baton Rouge Area, there were 12 Really Great Football Jamborees. Some were on Friday and some were on Saturday and so I had to make some tough decisions on which ones that I wanted to attend.

I definitely wanted to see the Super-Star Quarterback and Super-Star Running Back at Baton Rouge Tara. The Tara Offensive Coordinator is one of my All-American Bowl Game Coaches and he has been telling me about how Great these Players are and “Flying Under the Radar” with College Coaches and Recruiting Services.

On Friday Night, in the East Baton Rouge Kickoff Classic, Tara would be playing Baton Rouge Glen Oaks in Two-Twelve Minute Quarters after the McKinney against Baton Rouge Woodlawn Game at Flood-Stricken Woodlawn Stadium.

On Saturday Night, in the Corey Webster Foundation Classic, a Very Talented Madison Prep Team would play Baker and then play another Very Talented Team in 2015 1A State Champion Southern Lab. I definitely wanted to see the Madison Prep Game against Southern Lab.

We have been Negotiating a Fabulous Deal with Cox Cable TV to Film our  Thirteenth Annual 2017 All-American Bowl Game for National TV. We also have another Fabulous Deal with another Company to help pay for our Beautiful All-American Bowl Game Championship Rings.

Also, this year, I have become Twitter Friends with most all of these Players who are very Interested in playing in our All-American Bowl Game. I just Counted 96  Players that I Follow and they Follow Me on my Max Emfinger Scout Twitter Account. I am also Following Another 30-40 Players on Twitter.

I have been to almost every Football Stadium in the Baton Rouge Area, but it had been a few years since I had been to the Woodlawn Stadium and on Friday Night, I got lost. So when I finally got to the Stadium, it looked like about a Thousand People were waiting to get into the Stadium. I had to walk about a Mile to get into the Stadium, but I finally made it. Also, my New Junior Super Scout, Torri Stewart, was going to meet me at Woodlawn Stadium to help me Scout the Teams.

In the First Half of the Tara Game against Glen Oaks, both QB Patrick Arnold (6-4, 200, 4.6) and RB Larry Green (5-9, 190, 4.42) were Sensational. In the First Series, Arnold threw a Perfect 56-Yard Touchdown Pass to one of his Receivers, but it was Dropped. Then on Plays #2 and #3, Green ran for 10-Yards and 18-Yards and then on Play #4, Arnold hit Green in the Flat and he raced 30-Yards for a Touchdown.

In the Third Tara Series, Green ran 60-Yards for a Touchdown, but a Penalty called it back, but then with 43-Seconds Left in the First Half, Arnold hit another Super-Star WR Tywon Buckley (6-4, 200, 4.5) with an Unbelievable 39-Yard Touchdown Pass, to give Tara a 12-8 Half-Time Lead.

Then in the Second Half, on the Third Series, with only 31-Seconds Left in the Game, Green ran for a an Incredible 71-Yard Touchdown, giving Tara a 20-8 Victory over Glen Oaks. Arnold Finished with 128-Yards Passing and Two Touchdowns; while Green ran for 128-Yards on 11 Carries; averaging 11.6-Yards Per Carry and Two Touchdowns. Both Arnold and Green, had Touchdowns called back.

On Saturday, it rained all day in Plaquemine, but I was hoping and Praying that it was not raining in Baton Rouge or that it would stop before the Games Started. So when I left Plaquemine, it was still Raining. There were a lot of Talented Players on both the Madison Prep and Southern Lab Teams, but just before this game, the Southern Lab Team played Baker. My Junior Super Scout Torri Stewart also also there.

Southern Lab drove 80-Yards in Five Plays to Score the only Touchdown of the Game, culminating in a Beautiful 20-Yard Quick Slant Touchdown Pass from Junior QB Quincy Fillmore to Super-Star WR Xavier Bell (5-9, 170, 4.33) to put Southern Lab ahead 6-0. Then, Super-Star DE/FB Shannon Forman (6-2, 265, 4.7) ran for the Two-Point Conversion to make the Final Score at 8-0.

After Madison Prep beat Baker 22-8 and Southern Lab beat them 8-0; the Big Game of the night for the Corey Webster Championship was going to be Great. The Key to that Game was probably going to be Madison Prep Super-Star QB Edwin Kleinpeter (6-2, 223, 4.6) who completed 6 of 7 Passes for 117-Yards and a Touchdown in the First Game or his Super-Star WR Brian Savoie (#3), who Caught Four Passes for 61-Yards and a Touchdown.

2017 Player Brian Savoie II

So the Big Game got Started and with only 7:18 Left in the Game, Madison Prep Kicker Keyonne Hawkins Kicked a 21-Yard Field Goal for a 3-0 Lead. A few plays later, Southern Lab Junior Super-Star WR Cameron Thomas (6-4, 210, 4.5) Caught an Incredible 80-Yard Touchdown Pass from Junior QB Fillmore (6-0, 170, 4.8) to give Southern Lab a 8-3 Lead after their Two-Point Conversion was good, and then there was only 6:21 Left in the Game.

What happened next, you will not believe. You can go to a Hundred Games and NEVER see what just happened on the very next play. Remember the previous play was an 80-Yard Touchdown Pass. So with 6:06 Left, Madison Prep gets the Football back on the 20-Yard Line and Kleinpeter hit his Favorite Receiver Savoie on another Unbelievable 80-Yard Touchdown Pass witch makes Two Consecutive 80-Yard Touchdown Passes and after the Extra Point Kick, Madison Prep Lead 10-8 and that was also the Final Score.

Kleinpeter and Savoie were Incredible, but they were not the only Super-Stars that I really liked. Two Offensive Linemen: OT E’Darius Anderson (6-4, 320, 5.1) and OC Donell Hendrix (6-3, 335, 5.3); Two Defensive Linemen: DE Bryan Jones (6-6, 255, 4.6) and DE Troy James (6-3, 265, 4.6); Two Wide Receivers: Brian Savoie (5-9, 175, 4.33) and Lyndon Rash (6-1, 186, 4.42); and Two Defensive Backs who are Brothers: including FS Tazmine Walker (6-3, 190, 4.45) and Junior CB Tyrese Walker (5-9, 175, 4.5) who both made two of the Hardest Hitting Tackles of the game. Jones is Committed to Ole Miss and James is Committed to Kansas.

Four Southern Lab Defensive Players were Outstanding, including NG/DT Chad Brown (6-1, 285, 4.94) who made Six Tackles; DE Shannon Forman (6-2, 285, 4.8) who also had Six Tackles and 3 Quarterback Hurries; OLB Cameron Williams (6-1, 220, 4.6) who had a Key Fumble Recovery and Numerous Tackles; and CB Da’Vonte White (6-1, 180, 4.42) who made plays all over the Field. Bell was also Outstanding on Defense. Forman in Photo with State Championship Plaque.

In 2015 and 2016, I put together Two of the Greatest Coaching Staffs of any High School Post Season All-American Bowl Game ever played, but our 2017 Coaches could be even better with about Ten of our Coaches being Former NFL Stars and who are now Super-Star Coaches.

Many Players have Told Me that they wanted to play in our All-American Bowl Game and I sent them an Invitation, thinking that if they wanted to play, they would turn-in their Paperwork, but after two or three weeks without their Returned Paperwork, I have to really Question their Intent on Playing. Those who have not Returned their Paperwork, after Two or Three Weeks, I have taken the AA off of their Name as Playing in our Game.

The Following List is an Updated and Current List of Invitations sent to Super-Star Players and Those Players with a AA are the Players, that have returned their Paperwork and are playing in the Game.

The Incredible Torri Stewart Story May Be One Of The Most Unbelievable Stories! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Torri Stewart

THE INCREDIBLE TORRI STEWART
STORY IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST  UNBELIEVABLE STORIES EVER TOLD!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

A few Weeks ago, I drove to Hammond, Louisiana to see the New Orleans Kings play the Hammond Bayou Vipers in the First Round of Playoffs of the Developmental Pro Football League. Both the Kings and Vipers had some Really Great Football Players, who for some reason, were “Flying Under The Radar” to NFL Teams.

As I was walking around, taking notes on some of my Favorite Players, a Young Man walked-up to me and asked me If I was a Scout. I told him that I was and he told me that his name was Torri Stewart.

We were standing in the End-Zone and he told me a little about himself and asked me if I could help him and I told him that I would try.

I found-out that Stewart was a Two-Sport Super-Star in Football and Basketball and he had Graduated from Baton Rouge Southern Lab in 2004. For his First Two Years, he Enrolled at Southern University in 2005, to stay close to home after Hurricane Katrina.

Then in 2007, Stewart Enrolled at El Camino Compton Community College. After two Years at Compton and making the 2008 JC Gridwire All-American Team, he was being Heavily Recruited by such teams like LSU and Southern Cal. LSU and USC were Ranked #1 and #2 in the Country and they were very interested in getting Stewart for their Defensive Backfield.

As a Great Playmaking Strong Safety and a Great Ball Hawk with Great Ball Skills, Stewart was also known for Making Tackles from Sideline to Sideline and making Bone-Crunching Tackles. Although Coach Les Miles and Coach Pete Carroll of USC were Recruiting Stewart, there were many other Schools, including Arizona State, Utah, Washington, Colorado, Northern Illinois, Idaho and others Recruiting him.

Stewart was the only Two-Sport Super-Star at Compton before he decided to Concentrate on Football and going back to LSU, in his Home Town. In 2009, after Committing to go back home to LSU, the NCAA Clearinghouse went over his Transcrips and noticed that he had Enrolled at Southern, after Hurricane Katrina in 2005-2007. In 2009, however, the NCAA Clearinghouse passed a New Rule that Prohibited a Player from Transferring from a Junior College to an SEC Team, if the Player only has One-Year of Eligibility.

This is when Stewart started to fall-off of the Recruiting Radar. Although Stewart filed an Appeal, using Hurricane Katrina, to get a “Grievance for a Red-Shirt Year”, but the NCAA Clearinghouse Denied the Appeal and Stewart ultimately had to go to a D-2 School instead of a D-I to keep playing Football.

Stewart chose Elizabeth City State University. When he got to Elizabeth City, Stewart was forced to play Out of Position at Linebacker, for the need of the team. He then Finished Elizabeth City in 2012, but he was rehabbing a Sprained Meniscus and missed the Elizabeth City Pro-Day.

Coach Jim Harbaugh of the San Francisco 49ers, called Coach Les Miles and asked him if he would allow Stewart to Participate in their 2012 LSU Pro Day. His Doctor told Stewart that he was not ready to compete and that he needed another Six Weeks for his Meniscus to be ready. Although Stewart was a Shell of Himself, he decided that he did not have a choice and he Competed in the LSU Pro Day and it Sparked an Interest in Six NFL Teams.

Shortly, after that, Stewart participated in the 2012 New Orleans Saints Local Pro Day where about 30 Defensive Backs Participated. In a Very Impressive Saints Pro Day, Stewart was the only Defensive Back that was approached by Saints Defensive Coordinator, Steve Spagnolo.

“What is your deal,” said Spagnolo? “Why haven’t I heard about you.” After asking Stewart a few more questions, Spagnolo walked Stewart over and introduced him to the Saints General Manager, Micky Loomis. Due to the Fact that Head Coach Sean Payton was not present, because of the “Bounty Scandal”, the attempts by Spagnolo to bring him to the Saints Camp, fell through.

Then in 2015, Stewart redid another Pro Day at the Southern Pro Day. At that Pro Day, New York Giants Scout Jeremiah Davis called Stewart a “Heaven Sent” after the workout. Davis told Stewart that was going to bring him to New York for a workout, but soon changed his mind after he could not find enough Film on him.

Stewart has recently recorded some Incredible Measurables for a Strong or Free Safety, at some Recent Pro Days, including  the Following: (6-1, 215, 4.37, 39. 4.01, 126, 20). Those Measurables will give Stewart a Mind-Boggling 2,530 MEARS RATING. Check the 2016 NFL Draft to see how Stewart would Rate and Rank.

If the Good Lord Placed Me Into the End-Zone to Meet Torri Stewart, There is Definitely a Reason and maybe it is To Help Torri to Continue Playing Football.

With these Unbelievable Measurables, I think that Torri Stewart should be Playing in the NFL or Canadian Football League and this Story may help him to get there.

NFL DRAFT AND SCOUTING COMBINE
2016 FABULOUS FIFTY PLAYERS
SUPER GOLD-CHIP RATINGS

2,400 Or Better MEARS RATINGS

SPECIAL NOTE: The 2016 NFL Draft Class might have been one of the Most Incredible and Most Talented Draft Classes in Recent Years. Out of the Top 35 Players, there were at least Five Players, and maybe Six Players including FS Jalen Ramsey, OLB Myles Jack, OT Laremy Tunsil, DE Joey Bosa, DE DeForest Buckner, and possibly RB’s Derrick Henry or Ezekiel Elliott who could have been the First Selection in the Draft. With some NFL Teams Trading Players to “Move-Up” with a Higher #1 Draft Selection, and maybe get the #1 Selection, there were also another Two Players who had a chance to be the #1 Selection, including QB’s Carson Wentz and Jared Goff.

It might be a Little Late for Torri Stewart to get Picked-Up by an NFL Team for this Fall Football Season, but he will join me and my 13th Annual 2017 All-America Bowl Game Coaching Staff for our December 31, 2016 Game. Stewart then will join me and Participate in the Lestini 16th Annual Pro Football Free Agent Camp in Mobile, Alabama on January 22, 2017.
