DEVELOPMENT OF THE MEARS ASSET RATING SYSTEM
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 Scout and you only have one Draft Choice left in your current NFL Draft, there needs to be a Rating System that you can go to and based on the highest rated player, and it would give you the best player regardless of position.
One of the reasons, in the early years, that the Dallas Cowboys were always successful in the NFL Draft was because they probably had more information on every player and they were able to make more valid decisions on each player, based on that information. Their philosophy was always that the more information, the more valid the decision as to whether to draft a player or not.
When I left the Dallas Cowboys in 1976, I developed a similar Rating System, but I shelved it until 2001, when NIKE developed a similar Rating System and called it The SPARQ Rating. When I decided to bring back my Rating System, I called it the Max Emfinger Asset Rating System or MEARS RATING.
Although the SPARQ Rating System has become popular, it still has some flaws, because the SPARQ Rating System was not originally based on a player’s position, but his weight. If the Rating System is not based on the position of the player, then how are you going to decide who the best player is at each position? If the Rating System is based on the player position, then you will know how a player relates to his position.
If you have only one Draft Choice or one scholarship left, the MEARS RATING SYSTEM will give you the highest rated player regardless of position. To get this MEARS RATING, more information, including HT, WT, 40, VJ, Pro-Shuttle, SBJ, and 185-pound BP reps for high school players and 225-pound BP reps for college players are put into the formula and all of this is based upon the standard for his position.
My mission and goal is to search for that hidden high school or college football talent that has not been found yet. I then evaluate him and try to help him to get some publicity.
FIRST ANNUAL 7on7 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
In 2003, I hosted the First Annual 7on7 National Championship and I hosted a 7on7 National Championship in 2004, 2005, and 2006. 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 the College Coaches wanted to see the hidden gems in a game-type highlight film and so these 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 these College Coaches to attend All-American Games and so the Game Film is a great tool to them.
In 2005, I hosted my 1st Annual All-American Bowl Game. In nine games in nine years, my wife and I have helped get 556 High School football players to get a scholarship that came to our first Bowl Game practice without a single scholarship offer. This does not count over 1,000 players who we have helped that did not play in our game.
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 Bowl Game 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 2010 First Annual Max Emfinger’s Super Elite Top Gun Camp was in July. The Camp was amazing and loaded with unknown and known talent. Many of them were invited to play in my 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. He later Signed with Alabama and played three years, including the 2010 BCS National Championship Game. Jackson then decided to come out early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.
FIRST HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL RECRUITING SERVICE
In 1979, I Founded the first High School Football Recruiting/Scouting Service. It was a service to help high school football players to get publicity to help them be noticed by College Coaches; for college recruiting buffs so they could find out who was being recruited; and for College Coaches to get extra information about high school football recruits that might not be on their recruiting boards.
Then in 1980, I was the first independent recruiting source to Rate and Rank a high school football player with my MEARS RATING SYSTEM. I was also the first independent source to rate and rank a College Football Recruiting Class after The National Signing Date.
In 1985, I had approximately 10,500 paid subscribers to a National Recruiting Newsletter.
DALLAS COWBOYS SUPER SCOUT
Dallas Cowboys Team Project: In the 1975-76 Football Season, I coordinated the Rating and Ranking of every current NFL Player. I then color-coded every player as to their Rating and Ranking. Blue = All-Pro; Red = Future or Past All-Pro; Green = Average Player; and Yellow = Rookie or Two-year player.
NOTE: A huge “Flip-Chart” was developed with each NFL Team. Then, a Color-Coded Business-Card with the name of each player placed in the “Flip-Chart” sleeve for each position on the field for both the offense and defense of each NFL Team. The Late Legendary Head Coach Tom Landry and The Late Legendary Defensive Coordinator Ernie Stautner used this color-coded system as info in their weekly scouting report in preparation for their next game.
My boss was the Legendary and Ultimate Super Scout Gil Brandt. Three of my fellow Dallas Cowboy Scouts were Cornell Green, Reid Johnson, and John Wooten.
My job with the Dallas Cowboys was to Evaluate, Rate, and Rank College Football Players for the NFL Draft. My boss, Gil Brandt, asked me to Evaluate, Rate, and Rank the 1976 Top Texas HS Football Players for a Texas Top 100 List to give to the College Coaches as a favor. Then when Coach Landry asked me to Evaluate, Rate, Rank, and Color-Code Every Single football player in the NFL, I was probably the first and only Talent Scout eder on the Planet who was asked to Evaluate High School, College, and Professional Football Players in the same Football Season. After finishing this Dallas Cowboys Scouting Project, Coach Landry and Coach Stautner gave me the Title of Super Scout.

ALL-AMERICAN BOWL GAME HIGH DRAFT CHOICES
In the first previous nine games, The All-American Bowl Game Classic has helped 563 players to get a scholarship.All of these players were fabulous football players who, for various reasons, had been “Flying under the Recruiting Radar” with the College Coaches. The All-American Bowl Game Classic also has had some very distinguished Alumnus, including two #1 Draft Choices; two #2 Draft Choices; and four #3 Draft Choices. Kareem Jackson, Lawrence Wilson, and Vick Ballard did not have a single scholarship offer when they reported for their first AABG practice. Dalton and Looney had one offer.
