2006 AABG Stars Lamarr Houston and Trent Williams! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Today Highlights and Stars: Lamarr Houston and Trent Williama
By Super Scout Max Emfinger

In the 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic, I had 113 players and I was able to get some really great players into that game. Many of them had already committed to play for teams like Arkansas, Alabama, TexasLSU, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Florida, TCU, and Florida State. Those players made up about 60% of the total players and those players helped the other 40% of the players to receive a scholarship.

In that 2006 AABG, we had such great college stars as OT Trent Williams (Oklahoma);  DE Lamarr Houston (Texas); QB Andy Dalton (TCU); WR Damian Williams (Arkansas and USC); LB Brian Duncan (Texas Tech); DE Wayne Daniels (TCU); RB Charles Scott (LSU); RB Vondrell McGee (Texas); WR Chris Mitchell (LSU); SS Mister Alexander (FSU); LB Lawrence Wilson (Connecticut); TE Preston Dial (Alabama); WR London Crawford (Arkansas); CB Ramon Broadway (Arkansas); WR Michael McCoy (Alabama); RB Cordera Eason (Ole Miss); RB Derrick Davis (Ole Miss); OC Ryan McMahan (FSU); LB Brian Duncan (Texas Tech); LB Martez Smith (Southern Miss); and DT Wes Tunuufi Sauvao (Central Florida).

As you can see, there were some really Special Players in that 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic, but it turned out that Four of those players became Very Special Players that had sensational college careers and were Drafted in the First three Rounds of the NFL Draft. This is still the greatest group of Football Players to ever play in one of our All-American Bowl Game Classics.

Two of these Super-Stars, DE Lamarr Houston and OT Trent Williams, were unbelievable at the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine and consequently were Drafted in the First Two Rounds of the 2010 NFL Draft. The two Super Combine Freaks were also the First two players in History to record a 2,000 MEARS RATING at a Super Scouting Combine. WR Damian Williams was also Drafted #3 in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans; while QB Andy Dalton was Drafted #2 in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals, but they did not record a 2,000 MEARS RATING.  

In the 2011, 2012, and 2013 NFL Scouting Combines, we found out that the players are really getting bigger, stronger, and faster. In the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine, we had four players to reach the 2,000 MEARS plateau as OT Trent Williams (2,025) of Oklahoma; FS Taylor Mays (2,005) of USC; DT Lamarr Houston (2,005) of Texas; and RB Ben Tate (2,000) of Auburn made that level.

Then, in 2011 NFL Scouting Combine, eight players recorded a 2,000 MEARS RATING, including QB Cam Newton (2,070) of Auburn; QB Jake Locker (2,057) of Washington; CB Patrick Peterson (2,048) of LSU; LB Martez Wilson (2,030) of Illinois; LB Von Miller (2,012) of Texas A&M; DT Cameron Jordan (2,009) of California; DE J.J. Watt (2,005) of Wisconsin; and WR Jon Baldwin (2,001) of Pittsburgh.

And finally, as you can see in this analysis, there were four players in the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine; eight players in the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine; six players in the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine and now we have an unbelievable 21 players in 2013 NFL Scouting Combine who made the Elite 2,000 MEARS RATINGS.

Lamarr Houston #33 signed with The University of Texas; and then played in the 2010 BCS National Championship along with teammate and RB Vondrell McGee against Alabama and TE Preston Dial and 2007 AABG, CB Kareem Jackson. My 2010 All-American Bowl Game Players, watched this 2010 BCS National Championship Game in the Hotel, just before the 2010 All-American Bowl Game Classic. Houston was a versatile player and I had planned to use him as a Tight End, but he was so dominating on Defense, he played most of the game at Defensive End. He also played Tight End, but he was used mostly as a blocking TE as Charles Scott and Vondrell McGee rushed for over 200-yards.

Houston was projected as a #1 or #2 Round Draft Choice and then was Drafted #2 and #44 Overall in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Oakland Raiders.

I will never forget my first meeting with Lamarr Houston at a 2005 TCU NIKE Summer Camp in Fort Worth. He was a Super Combine Freak and I asked him if he would be interested in playing in my 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic, and he said that definitely was interested. Then later, I will never forget going to the Greyhound Bus Station in Shreveport to pick-up Houston, who had just come-in from  Colorado Springs Doherty High School in Colorado. I also took him back to the Greyhound Bus Station after the game.

Trent Williams played in the 2006 All-American Bowl Game Classic,  and  played his high school football at Longview, Texas. Williams had around 30 scholarship offers when he got to our first practice in 2006. He played Left Tackle in our game and Teamed with Houston on a lot of Double-Team Blocking Assignments to clear paths for Scott and McGee. Fullback Brandon Newsome of Dry Prong Grant, Louisiana was also a devastating lead blocker for Scott and McGee.

Trent Williams #71 was an unbelievable Left Tackle at Longview. I watched him play in two highlight game films and he was completely dominating. I wanted him in my All-American Bowl Game Classic, but he had so many scholarship offers, I didn’t think I could get him, but then the US Army All-American Game overlooked him and I was able to get him with his Longview Super-Star Running Back Teammate Vondrell McGee

Williams signed with The University of Oklahoma and then started at Right Offensive Tackle in his last six games as a True Freshman in 2006. After making Freshman All-American, Williams started his Sophomore and Junior seasons at Right Offensive Tackle before moving to Left Offensive Tackle as a Senior in 2009. After running a 4.88 in the Forty while weighing 320-Pounds and ran an amazing 4.63 in the Pro-Shuttle, Williams was Rated as the #1 Offensive Lineman in the 2010 NFL Draft and consequently was a #1 Round Draft Choice and #4 Overall in that 2010 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins

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.
