Manziel accounted for 43 touchdowns as he broke the SEC total offense record in one season that was set by former Heisman Trophy Winner Cam Newton with 4,600 yards. “Johnny Football” Manziel made a lot of SEC defenses look silly this season, and that’s not supposed to happen in the SEC. He’ll now be called Johnny “Heisman” Manziel.

About a month ago, I was inspired to do a story on “Life is a Journey of Crossing Paths” that we travel every day of our life and we can either change a person’s life or our life when we come in contact with a new person. It is a Great Story and Here is the Link if you missed it: Life is a Journey of Crossing Paths as we take Different Steps Each Moment! By Max Emfinger http://wp.me/p2fDtb-Fg

This past Friday, at around 3:00 in the afternoon, I decided that I was going to the Parkview Baptist Semi-Finals Football Playoff Game at their Stadium in Baton Rouge. I went early and got settled on the sideline around 6:15, just before the game started at 7:00. Two weeks earlier, I had also attended the Parkview game with Brusly.

In that game with Brusly, I had talked to one of the Parkview Coaches and told him that I was there to see both RB Hezekiah Randolph and CB Manny Mukes and was there anyone else that he would recommend for me to watch and recommend to play in my All-American Bowl Game. “Yes! You need to take a look at #2, FS Austin Suits,” the coach said. After the game started, and Suits made seven tackles in the first quarter, and made a one-handed interception, I gave the Coach an invitation for Suits. (Editor’s Note: A few years ago, another player made an incredible one-handed interception against the great and powerful San Angelo Bobcats that was coached by the Legendary Coach Emory Bellard and then that same player did it again two years later against the Mighty, Mighty Texas Shorthorns.)

Since Suits, Randolph, and Mukes had already committed to play in my game, why did  I need to go see them play again, but I had not seen Lavonia play and Lavonia had a big tight end named Brandon Armand. So I decided to go to the game. Before the game started, I got a chance to talk to Lavonia Head Coach David Brewerton and he said that his big tight end, Armand, could really run for a big tight end and after I watched him in pre-game warmups, I gave him an invitation to play in the game.

I always like to interact with dads and coaches on the sideline. About midway through the first quarter, Parkview was holding on to a slim 7-0 lead and I walked over to a couple people that were probably former coaches with sideline passes and posed a question to them. Thinking that he would choose either Suits #2, Randolph #1, or Mukes #23, I Asked them: “If you could only pick one player off of the Parkview team, who would you pick?” After thinking for a few seconds, they agreed that #28 was a pretty good player.

Now what I’m getting ready to tell you is like a fairy tale or you just can’t make-up a story like this. Two plays later, this #28, a defensive end, picked up a fumble and ran 49-yards for a touchdown. “I guess that this #28 was supposed to play in my game, so what is his name?” These two former coaches knew his name was Victor, but did not know his last name. I asked a camera lady on the sideline who had been given a printout with names and numbers and she spelled it out for me: Victor Gutierrez

Now, it gets even better. I had left my Attache-bag down at the end of the bench, about 40-yards away and so I walked the forty-yards to my bag. I grabbed an invitation out of it and put his name on the invitation and I looked-up and guess who was sitting in front of me on the end of the bench. Yes! It was #28 sitting there and so I handed him his invitation. He said he was 6-2 and 230 and his best forty was 4.7. He had no scholarship offers and noone knew anything about him, but they will after he plays in my game.

So now, you know why I was summoned from above to go to this football game.

About maxemfingerrecruiting

My mission and goal is to search for that hidden high school football talent that has not been found yet. I then evaluate him and try to help him to get some publicity. In 2003, 2004, 2005. and 2006, I hosted my Annual 7on7 National Championship. My goal was to get great athletes to one area where I could evaluate them and then help them with college coaches. The only drawback was that college coaches wanted to see the hidden gems in a game-type highlight film and so the college coaches suggested to me that I host a real All-American Bowl Game so that they could view these talented players in a highlight film, playing against other talented players. It's noted that the NCAA doesn't allow the college coaches to attend All-American Games or practices and so the Game Film is a great tool for the college coaches. In 2005, I hosted my 1st Annual All-American Bowl Game. In nine games in nine years, my wife and I have helped 549 HS football players to get a scholarship that came to our first Bowl Game practice without a single scholarship offer. This also does not count over 1,000 players who we have helped that did not play in our game, including over 100 players in the 2010 Recruiting Season. My Super Elite Top Gun Camp idealogy, is of course, to get as many Top Football Players to a Top Gun Camp so that all of my coaches and I can evaluate them, rate them, rank them, and promote them. There will always be "Diamonds in the Rough" to be found. My First Annual Max Emfinger's Super Elite Top Gun Camp was in July of 2010. The Camp was amazing and loaded with unknown and known talent. Many of them were invited to play in our 2011 All-American Bowl Game Classic. In 2007, in my 3rd Annual All-American Bowl Game, a player by the name of Kareem Jackson came to our first Monday practice, without a single scholarship offer. Jackson decided to come out early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.

    Great job. These lists are fantastic. I did notice the majority of the defensive players are from the SEC which makes sense.
