MY MEARS RATING SYSTEM!

When I was with the Dallas Cowboys in 1975-76, we had a Player Rating System  that we used in the 1976 NFL Draft. That Player Rating System was used to conclude that Tony Dorsett was our #1 Player in that 1976 NFL Draft. Then when I left the Cowboys in 1976, I developed a similar Player Rating System.

I shelved this Player Rating System until 2001, when NIKE Sports developed a similar rating system and called it the SPARQ RATING SYSTEM. I then implemented my Player Rating System again and called it the MAX EMFINGER ASSET RATING SYSTEM or MEARS RATING.

ASSET stands for Agility, Strength, Stamina, Explosiveness, and Technique. These are Essential Tools or Athletic Skills that can indicate Superior Athletic Performance in any competitive Sport or Event. This new MEARS RATING SYSTEM or a similar Player Rating System, identifies overall Athletic Ability, and it can be used by Top College and Pro Coaches around the country as an initial indicator of the Athletic Potential of an athlete on the football field.

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 or any other Professional Football Team and you only have one Draft Choice left on your current Professional or NFL Draft Board, there needs to be a Player Rating System that you can go to and based on the highest rated player, would give you the very best player available irregardless of position.

THIS IS NOT THE FIRST GOLD, BLUE, AND RED RATING SYSTEM!

Forty Years Ago, in 1975, when I was a Talent Scout with the Dallas Cowboys, Gil Brandt invited me to Follow him down the hallway where we went into a Conference Room where Head Coach Tom Landry and Defensive Coordinator Ernie Stautner were waiting for me. “Max, we want you To Coordinate a Dallas Cowboys Team Project for us,” said Coach Landry. “We want you To Coordinate the Rating and Ranking of every Active NFL Player and then Color-Code every player in the NFL as to their Rating and Ranking.”

GOLD = NFL All-Pro Player
BLUE = NFL Future All-Pro or Past All-Pro Player
RED = Average NFL Player
GREEN = NFL Rookie or Not Enough Info To Rate

NOTE: A huge “Flip-Chart” was developed with each NFL Team. Then, a Color-Coded Business-Card with Name, Height, Weight, and Forty for each NFL player placed in the “Flip-Chart” sleeve for each position on the football 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 Rating System as info in their weekly Scouting Report in preparation for their next game of the Season.

My job with the Dallas Cowboys was to Evaluate, Rate and Rank College Football Players for the NFL Draft. My boss, Gil Brandt, also asked me to Evaluate, Rate, and Rank all of the Top Texas High School Football Players for the 1976 Football Recruiting Season and I made a Texas Top 100 Recruiting List to give to all of the College Football Coaches.

Then when Coach Landry asked me to Evaluate, Rate, Rank, and Color-Code Every Football Player in the NFL, I was probably the First and Last Talent Scout 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: “Coach Stautner, I think we have us a Real Super Scout!”

The MEARS RATING SYSTEM, or a similar type Rating System, is very important for the NFL Scouts, and the NFL Scouting Combine is the first time that “Accurate Numbers” are recorded on these NFL Players. It’s easy to say someone can run a 4.4 or a 4.3 in the Forty, but before an Accurate Hand-Held Timing by a Professional Talent Scout or either by a slower, but Accurate Laser Timing is done, most Forty Times are less than Accurate.

Technique is also very important and that is why College Football Players entering the NFL Draft will hire a Sports Trainer to train and teach them how to do a proper Vertical Jump, Pro-Agility Shuttle, or a Standing Broad Jump.

You can get a very good idea about a High School or College Football Player if he participates in a Legitimate Super Football Combine, but many High School Football and College Players do not get a chance to participate in Super Combines. If a High School Football Player is being recruited by 40 D-1 Schools, then you have to assume that he is an outstanding Football Player, but how can you give this player a MEARS RATING if he does not have Valid Measurables? The answer is Very Simple! If you have some of his Speed Measurables, you can approximate his other Speed Measurables based upon his Game Film Evaluation or Actual Game Evaluation, giving him the Maximum Points on most of his Speed Measurables for his position.

Most High School and College Football Players don’t even know what their Measurables are and you would think that they would, but they don’t. Many times, a High School or College Football Player will list his best Forty Time as a 4.8 and then twenty minutes later run a 4.6 Forty or better. Also, you must keep in mind that with a little instruction and training, most High School and College Football Players can improve their Speed Measurables by Two and Three Tenths of a Second and can improve on their Distance Measurables by as much as Six to Eight Inches.

Some of this Information may not mean as much to you as other parts, but all Players and Coaches need to understand How and Why this MEARS RATING SYSTEM was Developed and how it has Evolved over the Years.

By 2001, all of the other High School Football Recruiting Services were using a Five-Star Player Rating System Method which Does Not Measure Anything. One year, at the start of the Spring, there were 45 Wide Receivers who were Rated by that Recruiting Service, with a Four-Star Player Rating. We went to bed one night and the next morning there were only 25. Someone at that Recruiting Service had decided that there could only be 25 Four-Star Wide Receivers and he had demoted 20 of the Wide Receivers to a Three-Star Player Rating. So Just What does a Five-Star or Four-Star or Three-Star really mean, If Anything.

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.
