2017 ALL-AMERICAN ALL-BOWL OFFENSIVE FOOTBALL TEAM By Super Scout Max Emfinger

2017 ALL-AMERICAN ALL-BOWL
OFFENSIVE FOOTBALL TEAM

By Super Scout Max Emfinger

Super All-American Wide Receiver Calvin Ridley (#3) of Alabama is one of the Top Wide Receivers in the Country and he Could Very Well be The Key Player in the National Championship Bowl Game and Be a Member of The First Team Offensive Bowl Team on Tuesday!

SPECIAL NOTE: Much of Game for Alabama was an exercise in overcoming adversity. Georgia dominated the first half, and Starting Quarterback Jalen Hurts could not get anything going, finishing 3-of-8 for 21-Yards while rushing for 47-Yards. So Coach Lou Saban turned to True Freshman Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who ultimately tied the game with an Incredible Touchdown Pass to Calvin Ridley on 4th-and-4 with just 3:49 Remaining in the Game.

Scouting Notes I: I have been Selecting College Football Weekly MVP Awards for The Last Fourteen Weeks, but The Player had to be on The Winning Team to Qualify for The Weekly MVP Award.

Scouting Notes II: During The Season, My Guidelines for Being a Weekly MVP were Set as Follows: Quarterbacks: 450-Yards of Total Offense – All-Purpose Backs: 200-Yards of Total Offense – Running Backs: 175-Yards of Offense – Wide Receivers: 175-Yards of Offense – Tight End: 100Yards of Offense – Defensive Line: 2 Sacks or 2 Turnovers –Linebacker:  15 Tackles or 2 Turnovers – Defensive Back: 2 Interceptions or 2 Turnovers. Must be on Winning Team!

Scouting Notes III: For the All-American Bowl Team, I have Slightly Varied The Standards for Each Position to Qualify for The All-American All-Bowl Football Team. OFFENSE Quarterbacks: Must have 400-Yards or Bowl MVP; All-Purpose Backs: Must have 200-Yards or Bowl MVP; Wide Receivers: Must have 175-Yards or Bowl MVP; Running Backs: Must have 150-Yards or Bowl MVP. DEFENSE – Linemen and Linebackers: Must have Two Sacks or Two Turnovers or Defensive MVP; and Defensive Backs: Must have Two Interceptions or Two Turnovers or Defensive MVPMust be on Winning Team!

Scouting Notes IV: If the Player fell short of the Standard for his Position, but was Outstanding in the Bowl Game and was First or Second Team All-American; in the MVP Column, there will be a First Team All-America (AA1) or Second Team All-American (AA2).

In 2015, The Frogs Stormed back from being down 31-0 to win The Alamo Bowl Game. They did it again Thursday night, rallying from 21-3 deficient to beat The #15 Stanford Cardinals by a 39-37 Comeback Victory behind Super-Star Quarterback, Kenny Hill, who had another Incredible Game.

Then, his Incredible 27-Yard “Throw-Back” Touchdown Pass, down the Left Sideline, from Wide Receiver Desmon White to make it 27-16 in the Third Quarter, but Hill “Returned The Favor” as he Hit White on an 11-Yard Touchdown to make it 28-23. Stanford then kicked a Field Goal to to Increase their lead to 31-23.

Hill “Put An Unbelievable Charge” into The TCU Fans in the Fourth Quarter with the “Play of The Game” as he Found True Freshman Jalen Reagor, down the Right Sideline with an Incredible 93-Yard Touchdown Pass to Bring The Stanford Lead to 31-29 and Bring The Predominantly Horned Frog Fans in The Alamodome to Attention.

After this Incredible Play, Desmond White Struck-Again as he Returned a Punt 76-Yards for a Touchdown to give The Frogs their First Lead at 36-31, but Stanford Scored again to give the another Go-Ahead Lead at 37-36.

Then Hill led The Frogs down the Field and gave Cole Bunce a Chance to Kick the Winning 33-Yard Field Goal with just over 3 minutes left after Stanford had retaken the lead and With an Apparent Victory.

It was the second time this season that Hill had a Rushing Touchdown, Passing Touchdown, and Receiving Touchdown, in the Same Game, providing a Memorable Finale to his Great College Career.

Although, he was from the Area, Iowa All-Purpose Back and Super-Star Akrum Wadley (#25) had never been to Yankee Stadium, even though he grew up about 20-Miles across the river in New Jersey, but on his first visit, he seemed to bring out the whole town of Newark to cheer him and The HawkeyesWadley gave away 40 or more Game Tickets, and he certainly did not disappoint any of his his hometown fans who were Freezing inside Yankee Stadium to Watch him play.

In this Frigid Pinstripe Bowl Game against Boston College, Wadley Rushed for 88-Yards and a Touchdown; Caught 2 Passes for 24-Yards; and Returned 5 Kickoffs for 171-Yards, giving him an Incredible 283-Yards of Total Offense in the 27-20 Victory. This Bowl Game Sensation was Awarded with The MVP Trophy and also helped Snap a Five-Game Bowl Losing Streak.

Boise State Committed two turnovers that were returned for Touchdowns in the final minute of the First Half, turning a 24-0 Rout in the making into a competitive 24-14 contest and allowing Oregon back into the game, but without any Special Speech from their Head Coach, the Broncos regrouped and responded.

Super Wide Receiver Cedric Wilson (#1) Caught 10 Passes for 221-Yards and a Touchdown; Freshman Free Safety Kekula Kaniho Returned an Interception 53-Yards for a Touchdown to go with his 3 Solo Tackles and a Sack; and All-American Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch led The Broncos Defense with 12 Tackles, including 10 Solo Tackles, 3 Tackles for a Loss, and 1 1/2 Sacks as #25 Boise State beat Oregon 38-28 in the Las Vegas Bowl.

The Georgia Bulldogs are the Very First Non-Alabama SEC Team to make the College Football Playoff.

4. Alabama (11-1) – There was Absolutely No Way the Playoff Selection Committee could “Leave-Out” The One-Loss Alabama Crimson Tide. Before they loss at Auburn, The Crimson Tide had been Ranked #1 or #2 in Every Single 2017 Playoff Ranking. The Auburn Tigers were The Hottest Team in the Country in November, taking down two #1 Teams at home, so a 26-14 loss to Auburn certainly isn’t the worst loss among the teams in the playoff field.

After Ohio State beat Wisconsin in The Big-10 Conference Championship Game, the Biggest Question was whether the Committee would Value Better Wins and a Conference Championship for Ohio State or Alabama with fewer losses and perhaps a more Convincing Eyeball Test as being a Better Team than Ohio State with Two Losses.

Despite not playing in the SEC Championship and a relative lack of perceived quality wins, Alabama beat Florida State when The Seminoles were ranked #3 in the AP Top 25 Poll and In addition, had wins over LSU and Mississippi State.

It took an 11th Hour Decision by the Selection Committee to keep The Alabama Playoff Streak Alive, as The Crimson Tide made the Playoffs for the Fourth Consecutive Year. This is their lowest final ranking in the playoff era, after entering the playoff ranked No. 1 in 2014 and 2016, and No. 2 in 2015.

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.
