The Ben Wilkerson Intriguing Story!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger
At the 2018 Lestini Free Agent Super Combine, we had Three Quarterbacks who had Originally Signed-Up to Participate, but due to the Cold Weather, only one Athletic Passing Quarterback was able to Participate and that was Ben Wilkerson (#5) from Fayette Ware, Tennessee and Alfred State, and for the Last Two Years, he has been Playing Football in Germany.
The Munich Cowboys in Germany in the German Football League was his Last Team to play with in 2017 and before that, he Played for The Franken Knights of Germany in 2016.
During the Quarterback Drills at The Lestini Super Free Agent Combine, I was able to Really get a chance To Evaluate Wilkerson and I was Very Impressed with him and his Accuracy in Hitting his Targets. In the Passing Drills, Wilkerson did not throw a Really Hard Pass, but his Accuracy was Outstanding. Check him out!

In 2015, as a Senior at Alfred State, Wilkerson Passed for 1,212-Yards and 9 Touchdowns in Eight Games with a 151,9-Yards Per Game Average. His Best Game was against Maranatha Baptist University when he Passed for 329-Yards and Three Touchdowns. On his Highlight Film, Wilkerson is an Outstanding Athletic Quarterback who does not throw a Really Hard Pass, but he is Extremely Accurate in the Pocket and on Roll-outs.
At The Lestini Super Combine, Wilkerson Ran a Great 4.76 Forty, an Outstanding 4.25 Pro-Shuttle, and another Outstanding 126-Inch Standing Broad Jump. At The Hudl Super Combine, he ran a 4.6 Forty and did an Outstanding 36-Inch Vertical Jump, so I Averaged his Two Forties and gave him a 4.68, along with his 36-Inch Vertical Jump.
Before the start of his Senior Year at Alfred State, his College Coach, Dan Levy Introduced the Idea to Wilkerson to Continue Playing Football in Europe after Graduation and Wilkerson was Really Excited about that Possibility and he Created a europlayers.com Account and started talking to teams. The Franken Knights became very Interested in him and they gave him a Tremendous Opportunity after Graduation and he Signed with them in 2016. This Small Medieval town of Rothenburg, Germany was a Beautiful Town and it was a Tremendous Experience for Wilkerson.
American Football is now an International Sport, and now being played in over an Incredible 85 Foreign Countries around the Globe. In these Various Different Countries, they have Developed Football to keep The Great Competition at a Very Strong Level.
Then The Outstanding American Football Players that are “Flying Under The Radar” with The NFL and CFL are now being Imported to all of the Various Foreign Country Football Teams to help their Build Their Competition.

The Munich Cowboys in Bavaria, Germany was the Second German Team for Wilkerson. It was a Large City that was Awesome with many different things to do outside of Playing Football.
