Alex Pagonis was Voted Offensive Lineman MVP!
2013 ALL-AMERICAN BOWL GAME CLASSIC
PLAYER MVP’S OF THE GAME
Usually in an All-American Bowl Game, the Defensive players are better athletes and with only three or four days to workout, they are always in a better position to dominate when the big game comes. In our Ninth Annual All-American Bowl Game Classic, it was not much different than in the other games with the defensive ends and tackles dominating almost every single play in practice and in he game.
This year, our Coaches decided to do something a little different in the past and so on Tuesday, we decided to have a preview of the game and scrimmage each other. It really was a lot of fun for not only the coaches, but also for the players who had been watching each other practice for at least three regular practices.
The main reason that I say this is because all of the coaches and players on both teams could get a preview of what they were going to face in the “Big Game” on Friday. Another thing that happened was that the coaches on both teams could evaluate not only their own players, but the players on the other team. This was very important in selecting Game and Team MVP’s after the game, because the coaches had already been able to evaluate thir own players in contrast to the players at the same position on the other team.
Every year, I am totally amazed at the talent level of some of of our players that have relatively few or absolutely no scholarship offers. There are sometimes various reasons for this such as injured as a junior; transfer as a junior or senior; or playing behind a better player as a sophomore or junior and just not able to make it to a College Recruiting List.
In the case of Alex Pagonis, he was a very good player as a junior, but in the Spring, he was weighing around 370 and the fear was that he might not could move, but he lost fifty pounds and had a great senior season, but he was never able to get back on a “Big-time” Recruiting List. His Upside is staggering.
East Team Head Coach, Mike Bennett said that he thought that the East Team had the best offensive linemen since 2006 when Trent Williams played for the West Team or in 2007 when Lee Ziemba was on the East Team. West Team Offensive Line Coach Reagan Smith thought that the West Team had three or four of the best offensive linemen that he had seen in the last three years.
