Offensive Game Skill Players Are The Best In Ten Years! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Chipley, Florida All-State Running Back Kobe McCrary
was a “Beast” and Leading Rusher with 60 tough yards!


Before we ever got to our first All-American Bowl Game Classic practice, I felt like we were going to have some of our best “Skill Players” ever in this Tenth Annual All-American Bowl Game Classic. In fact, I felt like we were going to have our best Quarterback group ever and the Ends were also close to being the best ever.

Then, I was able to go to both practices for both the East Team and West Team on Tuesday and I was shocked as to how great these “Skill Players” really were. And remember! I’ve been watching these players for ten years in my games and also in many other All-American Bowl Games for even longer.

I can honestly say that although there have been some great and talented players that have played in some of our other All-American Bowl Games, there might not be a better set of “Skill Players” in any of them than in this one.

PhotoBefore I went to the first two practices on Tuesday, I thought that Dallas Davis (6-2, 215, 4.6) of Springfield Rutherford, Florida (#11 In Photo) and Charlie Kelly (5-8, 185, 4.37) of Tallahassee Rickards, Florida were two of the best Quarterbacks to ever play in our game.

I also liked East Team Quarterback Dustin Dubar (6-2, 180, 4.7) of Jonesboro Nettleton, Arkansas who is a very athletic Quarterback with a 36-Vertical Jump, a great 4.32-Pro-Shuttle, and with a strong, accurate arm. These were the the three Quarterbacks of the East Team that won the game, by an amazing 30-0 Score, and Congratulations to East Team Head coach Freddie Brown of Duncan Byrnes, South Carolina. Although they lost, the West Team also had some fabulous Quarterbacks.

PhotoWest Team Quarterback Cameron Johnson (6-3, 210, 4.5) of Athens Clarke Central, Georgia has been an outstanding basketball player for four years and he is being recruited in that sport, but he did complete 137 of 233 passes for 1,795-yards and 14 Touchdowns as a Junior and he is a Super Athletic Quarterback. Johnson also recorded 2,029 Yards of Total Offense and 22 Touchdowns as a Junior.

Johnson has the potential to be another RGIII Type of Player, but he has never been able to make the Major College Coaches Recruiting Lists. One of his favorite targets for the last two years has been Austin Johnson (6-1, 185, 4.4, 40) who had a sensational Senior Season and has recorded some great Measurables, including a 40-Inch Vertical Jump and a 126-Inch Standing Broad Jump. Johnson came to our First Practice with a 2,020 MEARS RATING.

So, on Tuesday, when I got to the West Team First Practice, Quarterback Coach John Gregory, who was Head Coach of two Canadian League Grey Cup Championships, and is probably the most decorated Quarterback Coach ever to Coach in our game was talking to me about how great that Kobe “Gus” Miller of Bryan A&M Consolidated, Texas looked in the early practice. I had already gone to see Miller (6-3, 210, 4.6) play in the Texas 5A Playoffs against Humble Kingwood, but in that game, I did not get to the game until late in the third quarter and since they were ahead, he did not pass.

PhotoIn that game, I was really impressed with Brandon Jackson (5-8, 175, 4.32, 41, 4.06, 125) who made some great runs in the fourth quarter, while running out the clock and keeping the football away from a very solid Kingwood Team. Jackson came to the First West Team Practice with a 1,950 MEARS RATING.

The amazing thing about this part of the story is that I didn’t even know about WR Kerry Thomas (6-2, 190, 4.42, 38) but I later invited him to play in our game and he was one of the biggest surprises of the First West Team Practices, as he impressed all of the coaches ll day with some sensational catches from all of the Quarterbacks, Miller, Johnson, and Ryan.

Johnson and Miller can become very Special Quarterbacks,” said Coach Gregory. “Both Quarterbacks are very athletic and can really throw the football with great accuracy. I really like them.”

Miller came to the First West Team Practice with a 1,900 MEARS RATING, but after the Second Practice, he was moved to a 2,000 MEARS RATING; while Thomas came to the First Practice with an 1,850 MEARS RATING, but was moved to a 1,900 MEARS RATING after the First West Team Practice. Then, after the Second and Third Practice, Thomas was Awarded a 2,000 MEARS RATING. Thomas might have been the biggest Surprise Player in the Game.

The third West Team Quarterback was Timothy “T.J.” Ryan (6-4, 200, 4.7) of Ontario Trinity College Prep, Canada and Coach Gregory was his Coach as a High School Senior. In six games as a Senior, Ryan completed 65% of his passes for 1,386-yards and 14 Touchdowns in a 4-2 season. Ryan is also very athletic as he rushed for 106-yards in one game. His favorite receiver was Harrison Quinlan (6-3, 210, 4.5) and he was outstanding in the first two All-American Bowl Game practices, making at least one sensational catch from Miller. After the First Two Practices, Quinlan was moved from an 1.850 MEARS RATING to a 1,900 MEARS RATING.

But lets get back to Kelly and Davis, since they were Co-Offensive MVP’s of the Game! As I said before, Davis and Kelly were sensational on their Highlight Film and they were sensational in our Tenth Annual All-American Bowl Game. Davis was a great Leader and he completed 8 of 16 passes for 120-yards and ran for another 20-yards, giving him 140-Yards of Total Offense, including a five-yard Touchdown Run. On his Touchdown run, Davis ran a beautiful play-action roll-out with 4:50 left in the game.

Kelly might be the most electrifying Offensive Player that I saw play on Highlight Film all of this year.  First of all, Kelly ran a “Mind-Boggling” 3.98 Pro-Shuttle. Then, on his First Play of his Highlight Film, he returned a Kickoff 100-Yards for a Touchdown. Then on his second play, he returned another Kickoff 100-Yards for another Touchdown. I decided to watch one more play and I’m glad that I did. On his third play, Kelly was lined-up in Punt-Formation on his own 25-Yard Line, but the center snap went over his head, back to the Goal-Line and he ran back to get it on his own Goal-Line and Yes! Another 100-Yard Return for a Touchdown.

In the All-American Bowl Game, Kelly was used by Offensive Coordinator and Pensacola Head Coach Mike Bennett as a true All-Purpose Back in three different ways. Kelly scored on a beautiful 37-Yard Touchdown run in the second quarter to make the score 14-0 after Running Back Kobe McCrary (6-0, 220, 4.5) of Chipley, Florida had scored the first Touchdown earlier in that Quarter. Kelly also caught four passes from Davis for another 51-Yards.

Kelly had a 1,960 MEARS RATING before the game and was Awarded a 2,010 MEARS RATING after the Game; while Davis came to the First East Team Practice with a 1,950 MEARS RATING and after the First Two East Team Practices, he was Awarded a 2,000 MEARS RATING.

Kobe_McCrary's avatarMcCrary was also outstanding all week in East Team practice and he was a “Beast” running the football in the game as he was the Leading Rusher in the Game as he rushed for 60 tough yards on 18 carries. McCrary came to the First East Team Practice with an 1,810 MEARS RATING, but was moved to an 1,860 MEARS RATING after two great practices, and then moved to a 1,910 MEARS RATING after his great game.

Another really “Good-Looking” Running Back/H-Back was Tyler Crutchfield (6-1, 210, 4.5, 36) of Pensacola, Florida. Crutchfield came to the First East Team Practice with an 1,850 MEARS RATING and after the Second Practice was Awarded a 1,900 MEARS RATING.

The West Team also had some great Running Backs, but they were limited in the game because they were behind. Forrest Town (6-0, 195, 4.34, 41, 4.0, 130) of Zachary, Louisiana had just been Voted to the Baton Rouge All-Metro Team and with his incredible Measurables, came to the First West Team Practice with an “Eye-Popping” 2,020 MEARS RATING.

I watched some really great Highlight Film of Joe Wilson (5-9, 195, 4.4, 38, 4.18, 125, 24) of Fairfax Robinson, Virginia and I decided to put him on the West Team, because the East Team was loaded with Running Backs. As a Junior, Wilson rushed for almost 2,500-yards and scored 33 Touchdowns, but he was still Flying Under the Radar. Wilson came to the First West Team Practice with an 1,880 MEARS RATING, but after he rushed for 31-yards on only three carries, he was Awarded a 1,930 MEARS RATING.

runningMichael Milburn (6-1, 207, 4.42, 36, 4.2, 122, 15) of Axtell, Texas also was outstanding on his Highlight Film after a 1,000-yard Senior Season and he came to the First West Team Practice with an 1,864 MEARS RATING, but after some great Practices he was moved to a 1,914 MEARS RATING.

Darrean Burks Profile PictureThe biggest Running Back Surprise of the Week had to be Darrean Burks (5-8.5, 192, 4.46, 36, 4.12, 118) of Elba, Alabama. When Coach Ed Rigby told me about Burks, I was anxious to watch his Highlight Film and on that Film, he was an electrifying kick-returner and Playmaker. Burks was outstanding all week in the East Team Practices and then in the game, he  shocked everyone with 65-yards on six carries and an outstanding 10.8-yards per carry average. Burks came to the First East Team Practice with an 1,850 MEARS RATING, but went home after his great performance in the game with a 1,900 MEARS RATING.

Luther Lockwood called me on Friday before we were to meet on Monday. He said that he had just heard about our All-American Bowl Game and he wanted to know if there was room for him. Lockwood (5-7, 170, 4.32, 38) of Dolton College Prep, Illinois said that he had just finished a great Senior season and wanted to play in our game. The West Team had just lost Super, little SLOT Receiver Chevy Thornton (5-11, 190, 4.42, 38) of Jena, Louisiana to an injury; but the East Team had also just lost SLOT Receiver John Miller (5-11, 180, 4.45, 36) of Columbia Spring Valley, South Carolina to an injury. Since Lockwood was from Dolton, Illinois, I decided to put him on the same East Team with the other Dolton Thornridge players. So Lockwood came to the First East Team Practice with an 1,885 MEARS RATING. After watching him in the first two practices, he was Awarded a 1,935 MEARS RATING.

PhotoI knew that we were going to have some great receivers in our game, but I never dreamed that they would be this great. One of the first Wide Receivers that I was able to get was a little Slot Receiver named Jalen Curtis (5-10, 170, 4.32, 42) of Russellville, Arkansas. The last really great Wide Receiver that we had from Arkansas was Damian Williams of Springdale in 2006 and he was a #3 Draft Choice for the Tennessee Titans in the 2010 NFL Draft. Curtis had sensational Measurables and before the First Practice on Tuesday, he was Rated a 2,010 MEARS RATING or in other words, a Gold-Chip Player.

When I was with the Dallas Cowboys and getting ready to Evaluate, Rate, and Rank every player in the NFL for Coach Tom Landry, Coach Landry said: The Gold-Chips are All-Pro Players; the Blue-Chips are Potential All-Pro Players; and the Red-Chip Players are very good players and you need a lot of them to win a Championship. The Green-Chip Players are Rookie Players or young players who have not made it yet.”

With this Philosophy: The MEARS RATING SYSTEM Color Code is as Follows

Gold-Chips Are 2,000 and Above.
Blue-Chips Are 1,900 and Above.
Red-Chips Are 1,800 and Above.
Green-Chips Are 1,700 and Above.

Also remember! If a player does not have positives at most all of his Measurables, he might not even reach a 1,200 MEARS RATING.

Dorian Leonard (6-4, 205, 4.44, 38) of Longview, Texas was another Wide Receiver who had a 2,000 MEARS RATING before the First Practice on Tuesday and he made a couple of sensational catches in that First Practice. In the Game, on Friday, Leonard grabbed two passes for 53-yards and a great 26.5-yards per catch average. As a Junior, Leonard was sensational as he averaged 21.1-yards per catch on 21 catches. Leonard has already given the Texas Longhorns a Verbal over Oklahoma, Florida State, and Texas Tech, and Oregon State.

Then, there were two more Wide Receivers from Arkansas on the West Team and two more great Athletes, playing Wide Receiver from Plano, Illinois on the East Team who demonstrated great athleticism all week in practice and could be outstanding at the next level.

The two Arkansas Wide Receivers were Jimmie Jackson (6-3, 203, 4.45, 38) of Bentonville and DeMarcus Rivers (6-1, 185, 4.45, 36) of West Memphis. Jackson had recorded a 1,906 MEARS RATING before the First Practice while Rivers had recorded an 1,870 MEARS RATING before the First Practice.

Coach Brad Kunz called me and was telling me about his two Plano players, Javon Montgomery (6-0, 180, 4.41, 38) and Collin Seyller (6-2, 185, 4.44, 38) who are great athletes and both of them are electrifying in returning punts and kickoffs on their Highlight Film. Montgomery is a “Big-Play” player who had 19 catches for 452-yards and a 24-yards per catch average and with a sensational 46 Pancake Blocks in a Running Offense. Montgomery came to our first two East Team practices as an 1,870 MEARS RATING and after the First Two Practices, he was moved to a 1,920 MEARS RATING.

Collin SeyllerSeyller played Quarterback as a Senior and averaged 12.7-yards per carry after playing Wide Receiver as a Junior in a Wing-T Offense. On Defense, Seyller was a Lockdown Cornerback with seven Interceptions as a Senior, but he concentrated at Wide Receiver at all of our practices. Seyller came to the First two East Team Practices with an 1,850 MEARS RATING and was Awarded a 1,900 MEARS RATING after the Second practice.

2013 Jaquan FinchOne more position that we have not addressed is some really sensational Tight Ends on both the East Team and West Team. I was at the East Team First Practice on Tuesday and JaQuan Finch (6-3, 230, 4.46, 40) of Bay Minette Baldwin County, Alabama made two tremendous catches. Finch is a Super Athlete who returned a Kickoff 97-Yards for a Touchdown earlier in the year and he came to the East Team First Practice with a 2,030 MEARS RATING.

After watching the East Team First Practice, I went to the West Team First Practice. As I was walking-up to the practice, Kobe Miller hit a Wide Receiver over the middle and the Receiver made an absolutely fabulous catch. The catch was so sensational, I walked-up him and asked him his name and he said Aaron Hall. First of all, Hall (6-2, 210, 4.5, 38) of Baton Rouge Istrouma, Louisiana is a Super Athletic Big Receiver that was moved to Tight End, because he was the biggest Wide Receiver on his team. Hall came to the First Practice with a 1,950 MEARS RATING and after the First Practice was moved to a 2,000 MEARS RATING.

Another Tight End that is in the same situation as Hall is Jordan Whitaker (6-4, 210, 4.56, 36) of Longview, Texas. Whitaker plays with Dorian Leonard and Leonard is a step faster than Whitaker, so Whitaker plays Tight End for the Lobos. On his High School Highlight Film, Whitaker is just as impressive as Leonard in catching the Football. Whitaker came to the First West Team Practice with an 1,850 MEARS RATING, but was moved to a 1,900 MEARS RATING after the First two practices.

On the East Team, besides Finch, Ryan White (6-4, 240, 4.66, 36) of Trenton Peabody, Tennessee was a Pro-Typical Tight End with great size,speed, and hands. As a junior, White grabbed 25 balls for 567-Yards and a great 22.7-Yards per catch average. White is also a great Long Snapper and he came to the First Practice with a 1,750 MEARS RATING and after the First Two Practices was moved to an 1,850 MEARS RATING.

After spending almost ten days of watching the All-American Bowl Game Film, other Highlight Film, and talking to All-American Bowl Game Coaches, I have come to my Final MEARS RATINGS for all of the Offensive Skill Players and Offensive Linemen that played in the Tenth Annual All-American Bowl Game Classic. All of the players, coaches, and parents will want to Save these Final MEARS RATINGS, because at our first meeting on Monday Night, I predicted that Two players in this game would become NFL #1 Draft Choices. In a few more days, I will have the Defensive Players Final MEARS RATINGS Update.

Professional Football Showcase Co-Founder Lance Heron spoke recently to a Football Sports Community about his new Professional Football League, located in California and Nevada. They have designed a Football League where all teams are owned by the league owners and investors. The PFS Promises a mission to provide players with a platform to showcase their talents, while pursuing the idea that the players always come first. The Profesional Football Showcase is designed to take the Players and Coaches best interests into account, making it the league’s primary focus.

PhotoLance Heron is the Co-Founder and is an ex-military Policeman, Customs Inspector and Customs Investigator. He was headed to work one day and was crushed by a commuter train door. Coach Heron was retired by the government as a result of commuter injuries and developed an intense pain condition. He could no longer sit around, so he began coaching high school football again. Coach Heron moved up to coach at an NCAA Division II school and in Germany. Next, he was the General Manager and Head Coach for a professional team in New Mexico. While working for them he mentioned how the owner was taking advantage of the players by not paying bills and breaking promises.

Coach Heron hails from Vancouver Island, Canada. In many ways, he is far removed from the inner city life of Los Angeles, Las Vegas and the surrounding regions. Yet, he believes in what he is doing because of his unshakeable Faith In The Lord. Coach Heron wants a football loving community who puts God first involved at all levels, from the water boy to the offensive coordinator. There will be no beer or alcohol served at games. Sportsmanship and fair play are critical components to the PFS Code Of Conduct.

The PFS mission is to provide players with a platform to showcase their talents, while pursuing the idea that the players always come first.

The PFS will target talented players who have been overlooked, are late bloomers or did not have the financial ability to pay for college. Coach Heron shared how the cost of driving from east L.A. to Las Vegas prohibits some athletes from trying out. Hotel room costs plus food on top of that can extinguish a budding football players careers after high school ends because they cannot afford to play on. Coach Heron says there are try-out camps that have charged $65 only to skip town with cash from 3,000 to 6,000 registered players.

Coach Heron has been asked how they plan on making sure that players and coaches are actual Christians or have some type of official status of a religious faith. and Coach Heron said, “There will be a screening process that involves player evaluations and follow up phone calls.”

The PFS promises to promote its players to Higher Paying Professional Football Leagues, and allow those players who get invites to try out for those Leagues, the opportunity to be released from their contracts. The sports business was designed to give football players a chance to earn professional game film and allow them a chance to be seen by Area Scouts, in a Professional Football Environment.

With the New Professional Football Showcase on the Horizon, and all of these great Football Players in the 2014 All-American Bowl Game getting a chance to meet Coach Heron as the West Team Wide Receiver Coach, I would bet that at least 20 players from this 2014 All-American Bowl Game Classic, including the Defensive Players, will be on the Rosters of the Professional Football Showcase League in 2018.

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.
