Sneak Preview of Stars at John Lestini Free Agent Super Combine! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

WR Tristan Purifoy of North Alabama Was Sensational!

By Super Scout Max Emfinger

I felt very Honored and Privileged this Past Weekend to have been invited to be a Guest Super Scout at the 13th Annual John Lestini Group Free Agent Super Combine in Mobile, Alabama, just prior to the College Football All-American Senior Bowl in the Mobile, Alabama.

John and his wife Mary Jo Lestini have been putting-on this Free Agent Super Combine for 13 years and it gives Former College and Pro Players an excellent chance to show what they can do and get into the NFL, Canadian Football League, World League, Europe Football League, Arena Football League, and now the New Professional Football Showcase League which will start playing in 1015.

At the Player Seminar on Saturday night, I was able to meet a lot of players that I had previously written stories about and had Rated and Ranked them on the National Recruiting Scene. I was also able to meet most of the Coaches and Scouts that have helped John and Mary Jo Lestini to make this the great success that it has been for all of these 13 years.

I would still have to say that the most exciting part for me as a Scout was to see the great athletes in action and “Showing Their Stuff” on Sunday in front of all of the Coaches and Scouts from various Pro Teams and Pro Leagues. Now, remember! This is only a Sneak Preview, so I am only going to talk about one Wide Receiver named Tristan Purifoy, who is Formerly from The University of North Alabama and he was Sensational all day on Sunday.

There were a lot of really great Wide Receivers, but as a pattern started to develop, Purifoy continued to make sensational catches after another. There were many electrifying catches, but there was only one “One-Handed-Catch” all day and Yes. Purifoy made it.

We then put Purifoy up against the best Defensive Backs and he continued to make the “Big-Catch” against them.

Purifoy (6-0, 200, 4.5) also put-up some great Measurables with a 4.5 Forty on a Slow Surface; did an “Eye-Popping” 3.94 Pro-Shuttle; and a great 124 Standing Broad Jump. We did not do a Vertical Jump, but I gave him a 38-Inch Vertical Jump which gave him an Outstanding 1,960 MEARS RATING.

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.
