Final Football Spring Game Between Bonnabel and McMain! By Super Scout Max Emfinger

FINAL FOOTBALL SPRING GAME BETWEEN BONNABEL AND McMAIN!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger


Bonnabel Head Football Coach Reggie Rogers Being Interviewed by New Orleans Long-Time Sports Personality And Long-Time Friend Ken Trahan

In the Photo Up-Top, Coach Reggie Rogers is being Interviewed by one of my Long-Time Friends, Ken Trahan in August 2011, after Coach Rogers took over as Head Football Coach of His Alma Mater, the Kenner Bonnabel Bruins.

A couple weeks ago, on Saturday, I felt extremely Privileged and Honored to be invited as a Guest Scout of Bonnabel High School Head Football Coach Reggie Rogers at one of his last Spring Football Practices before his Final Spring Football Scrimmage which was Originally Scheduled For Thursday May 21, 2015.

Coach Rogers is finishing his Fourth Year at his Old Alma Mater and he has done a really tremendous job at a Large New Orleans 5A School in a Very Tough New Orleans District. Before Coach Rogers got back to Bonnabel, there were a lot of Potentially, Talented Football Players walking the Halls at Bonnabel High School that were not playing Football, but Coach Rogers has done an exceptional job of helping to change that.

The First thing that Really Impressed me when I met Coach Rogers was that he is such a “Player’s Coach” to his Players, just like Two of my Hall of Fame and Legendary Coaches; Coach Gordon Wood and Coach Catfish Smith were to me, and my Teammates and We Loved Them For it. Also, I was able to relate his Team and Players to my Two Teams and my Two Coaches, who I Played For and Won Championships with Under-Sized Players, Under-Rated Players, and Limited Players.

Another thing that Really Impressed me at Practice was that there were only 25 Players at his Practice. We joked after Practice about the other team could only play Eleven at a Time. My Brownwood State Championship Team not only had 28 Players, but they were out-weighed in Every Single Game that they played.

Our Center Weighed 150-Pounds; our Left Guard Weighed 145 Pounds; and our Right Guard Weighed 165-Pounds. Our Right Tackle (Ronney Moore) weighed 175-Pounds and he went on to make All-SWC at Texas A&M. Our Blocking Wingback weighed 145-Pounds and our Blocking Fullback weighed 175-Pounds. Our Blocking Tight End (Lawrence Elkins) Weighed 170-Pounds and he went on to Baylor and became an All-American Wide Receiver; while I played Tailback and weighed 167-Pounds!

My “Catfish” Cowchips Team had 26 Players on it and we went to Austin, Texas and Played The All-World Texas Longhorn Team who had 148-Players and we beat them. Read The 1962 Catfish Cowchips Story! http://wp.me/p2fDtb-2ot

At the Bonnabel Spring Practice, I also Found Four Players for My Twelveth Annual 2016 All-American Bowl Game. Two of those Players were Speed-Freaks with Maximum Speed Measurables; one Player was a Shotgun Center Snapper with Great Leadership; and the Fourth Player was a Very Talented, Athletic Quarterback with Great Leadership Qualities.

Although I was really happy with the Four Players from Bonnabel, I wanted to see them play one more time and they were going to play another Very Talented Eleanor McMain Team in their Final Spring Scrimmage and so I was very interested in seeing that Scrimmage on Thursday Night.

I called Coach Rogers and told him that I would meet him and his team at Bonnabel High School and Follow the Bus to Joe Yenni Football Stadium. Coach Rogers told me that the Bus would leave at 4:30 and so I pulled-up into the Bonnabel Parking Lot at 4:00 and ready to go.

The only Problem was that The Lord did not want this Final Scrimmage to be played on Thursday Night, because it started Raining at 4:10 and it did not stop until about 6:15. It did let-up at about 5:30 and the Bonnabel Players loaded-up two buses and took-off to the Joe Yenni Football Stadium, also in Kenner, hoping that the rain would stop. It did let-up some, but although Joe Yenni has a Beautiful Astro-Turf, The Conditions were still horrible and so Coach Rogers Cancelled the Scrimmage.

Semaj Franklin called me on Friday and told me that the Scrimmage was Re-Scheduled for Saturday Morning at 10:00 A.M. at the Bonnabel Practice Field. I told him to tell Coach Rogers and the other Players that I would be there.

On Friday Night, I tried to do some Research on The McMain Players. I First found out that a really Gifted and Athletic Quarterback named James Howard (6-0, 195, 4.45) had taken over at Quarterback a Year earlier in the 2014 Spring Game and he would be in his second year at Quarterback. They also had a Great Shotgun Center Snapper named William Jefferson (6-2, 255, 5.0) and he had been a Starter since his Freshman Year. This is what I First Found Out!

In that 2014 Spring Game against Wright, Eleanor McMain had lost their Super-Star Quarterback, Omari Jones, but despite that loss in the last 2013 Season-Ending Game, the Eleanor McMain Offense remained really Sharp with First-Year Junior Starter James Howard (In Above Photo) at Quarterback and Junior Running Back Malik Arnold combining for Five Touchdowns as the Mustangs beat Wright by a 30-6 Score, during their 2014 Spring Game Scrimmage at Pan-American Football Stadium.

Then all of a sudden, I started reading about another Athletic Quarterback, named Darnell Williams (In Above Photo) who had apparently taken over, in the Summer, from James Howard after the 2014 Final Spring Game. Howard had moved back to Wide Receiver where he had been Selected to the All-New Orleans Small School Team At Wide Receiver as a Sophomore.

In the 2014 Regular Season, Darnell Williams (5-11, 180, 4.4) had become a Real Super-Star Quarterback, while Howard was again making Spectacular catches from Williams while back at his Wide Receiver Position.

In a typical 11-3A District Game against Lusher, Williams rushed for 69-Yards on 16 Carries and Completed 13 of 29 Passes for another 176-Yards, including Three Touchdowns, as McMain Defeated Lusher by a 20-13 Score. In that Game against Lusher, Super-Star Howard was Double and Triple-Teamed, but he still caught Six passes for 66-Yards, including a Touchdown. In the next game against St Charles Catholic, Howard caught another Six Passes, but this time for 132-Yards and a Touchdown, while averaging 22-Yards Per Catch.

Stout defense leads McMain past Lusher, 20-13 McMain Coach Kevin Roussell was Class 3A Coach of the Year and New Orleans All-Metro Coach of the Year for Small Schools in 2011. In this Photo, Coach Roussell talks about how great his Players played in the Final Quarter as they came from behind and beat Lusher by a 20-13 Score!

OK! So on Saturday Morning after talking and “High-Fiving” with the Bonnabel Players and Coaches, I made it over to the McMain Team who was at the other End of the Field. I see Coach Roussell and I walked right over to him. He did not know me from Wally Pipp or any of the other College Scouts who were there. I’ll talk about them later. “Coach Roussell, do you have any Players that I need to be Evaluating?”

Coach Roussell immediately responded with: “They wear #8 and #1. About that time, I looked-up to see #1 was hitting #8 with a pass, but it was not a typical pass and catch. Wide Receiver #8 James Howard made a Sensational Catch of a thrown ball behind him that was also high by Quarterback #1 Darnell Williams. Center #50 William Jefferson is also an Outstanding Shotgun Center Snapper.

In the Scrimmage, Howard caught several passes, including a 15-Yard Touchdown, but he was also the Best Defensive Player on the Field for either team as he made at least Two Touchdown-Saving Tackles at the 15-Yard Line and another Bone-Crunching Tackle at the One-Yard Line from his Free Safety Position.

I think that Howard can play on either side of the Football for most any team in the Country. Williams ran a 10.7 100 Meters and he also can play Wide Receiver for most any team in the Country. Jefferson can Shotgun Center Snap for a lot of Teams. I talked to a Tulane Coach and a Lane College Coach and several other College Scouts and they all agreed!

As a Sophomore, Howard caught 29 passes for 536-Yards and 5 Touchdowns. Then after Seven Games as a Junior, Howard had 55 Catches for 805-Yards and 8 Touchdowns. After Seven Games, Williams had Completed 197 of 304 Passes for 2,029-Yards and 19 Touchdowns. Against Belle Chase, Williams Completed 17 of 27 Passes for 409-Yards and Three Touchdowns.

Williams is probably not a College Quarterback, but some teams may take a look at him at that position, but with his Outstanding Speed and Quickness, there are a lot of other Positions that he could play.

Howard can play as many as Six Positions, including all of the Secondary Spots; Outside Linebacker; plus Wide Receiver and SLOT Receiver.

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 to Talk to 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 Football Player if he participates in a Legitimate Super Football Combine, but many High School Football 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 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.

In 2015, we Re-Rated over Twenty Players up to a higher level than where they were when they came to our First Practice. West Team Recruiting Coordinator/Secondary Coach Eric Holden and East Team Recruiting Coordinator/Secondary Coach Nekemia Rich, were Relentless as they stayed up with me until 5:00 A.M. every night, Evaluating Players on their Highlight Film.

In the last Four Months, I have Evaluated over 150 High School Football Players on either their Hudl, NCSA, or YouTube High School Highlight Film, who in some cases, look like they might be Flying A Little Bit Under The Recruiting Radar to some of the Division I College Football Coaches. In those Four Months, I have also Found 75 Potential Super Stars and I have invited all of them to Participate in my Twelveth Annual 2016 All-American Bowl Game Classic.

From their Game Film and Previous Combines, I have Approximated some of these “Super-Star” Player Measurables. Some of their Measurables will be Re-Evaluated once their Paperwork arrives.

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.
