Alvin Kamara is another Sensational All-Purpose Back With Super Speed!
Super Scout Max Emfinger
I believe that you would agree with me that the National 7on7 Tourney Phenomenon has really become a Spectacular Event. With the New Level Athletics Elite National 7on7 Championship in Brooklyn, New York; The First Annual Rivals100 Five Star Challenge at Lakewood Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia; The Opening in Beaverton, Oregon; and The Fourth Annual Gridiron Kings 7on7 National Championship at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports in Lake Buena Vista, Florida; these huge Events have really taken the recruiting world with a frenzy.

The Gridiron Kings had Four Regional Teams that competed and each team was a Super Select 7on7 Team, just like my 1994 Super Select Baseball Team and my Super Select Slowpitch Softball Team that I formed in 1985. Incidentally, that Super Select Baseball Team in 1994, 1995, and 1996 qualified for 10 Age Group Baseball World Series and they went to three World Series in three years. Our Softball Team won six Houston Chronicle City Championships in 1985, 1986, 1987, 1088, 1989, and 1970 and we were 86-0 for six seasons in City Softball Championship Games. We once scored 26 runs in the top of the first inning. We had the Best of the Best, just like the 7on7 National Championships have the Best of the Best competing against each other.
The Gridiron Kings National 7on7 Championship Game was televised live on ESPN3 and then they had it set up to watch it as many times as you wanted to stream-it. I am sure that every college coach in American watched it at least once so they could evaluate this great array of talented athletes. I watched The Gridiron Kings National Championship Game twice after it was aired for the first time.
My Gridiron Kings Super 25 Elite All-Americans will be released on Friday August 31, so please check back. I’ve already done stories on eight of them, including TE O.J. Howard, WR Tony Stevens, WR Laquon Treadwell, WR Jake Oliver, and AP’s Taquan Mizzell, Ryan Green, Levonte Whitfield, and Alvin Kamara.
Alvin Kamara (5-10, 192, 4.37) of Norcross, Georgia was the RB MVP at the Atlanta NIKE Training Campand he was also one of the Super Stars on the Team Southeast when they won The Gridiron Kings 7on7 National Championship in July at the Disney World Wide World of Sports Complex. On his junior highlight film, Kamara is a sensational running back who makes a lot of big plays. He lines-up deep in the tailback position and then he runs for daylight. On his highlight film first play, he gets the pitch deep and runs 55-yards for a touchdown. Then on his second play, he goes 44-yards, and on his third play, he goes 70-yards for a touchdown. Then on play #4, Kamara goes 50-yards and on play #5, he goes for another 70-yard touchdown. Now you’re saying: Yeah, but that’s on his highlight film. Yes! I know, but he hasn’t been tackles and he was bearly touched on five plays. If a player is this awesome on his first Five Plays, then most college scouts would be fumbling around trying to find his phone number so they can call him to schedule a visit.
In The Gridiron Kings 7on7 National Championship, Kamara played on the Team Southeast that they won the National Championship. Kamara played mostly running back, but he caught a lot of passes coming out of the backfield. On the first touchdown drive, Kamara caught his first pass for 14-yards and it gave his Team Southeast a first down. Then, after their second touchdown, Kamara caught the extra point catch after the score, making the score 14-7.
Kamara also caught the extra point try on the third touchdown drive after making a beautiful 27-yard catch on the first play of the drive. Kamara dominated the game as he caught a 32-yard pass on the fourth touchdown drive and a 13 and 35-yard pass on the fifth touchdown drive. Kamara finished the day with a 20-yard catch on the final touchdown drive as Team Southeast beat Team Midwest by a 47-19 score. Unofficially, Kamara had 8 catches from QB Brice Ramsey for 141-yards and two extra points.
The thing that makes Kamara so valuable is that he can play running back or slot receiver and he can beat you at both positions. I think that he can play either position at the next level and I think that he can play as a true freshman. By the middle of August, Kamara had received over 20 scholarship offers and he had narrowed his top five schools to Georgia, Alabama, Florida State, Oklahoma State, and Tennessee. With Brice Ramsey already committed to Georgia, the Georgia Bulldogs might have the decided edge.
It’s pretty ironic that my Top Three and Five of the Top Six All-Purpose Backs played in this 2012 Gridiron Kings 7on7 National Championship Game. Those Top three players are Taquan “Smoke” Mizzell, Ryan Green, and Lavonte Whitfield. Alvin Bailey and Alvin Kamara are Ranked #5 and #6.
