WR Tristan Purifoy of North Alabama Was Sensational!
SNEAK PREVIEW OF SUPER STARS AT JOHN LESTINI FREE AGENT COMBINE South Alabama – Mobile, Alabama!
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.
