MAX EMFINGER HAS HOSTED THIRTEEN ALL-AMERICAN BOWL GAMES AND SIX SUPER ELITE TOP GUN CAMPS; AND FOUR 7-ON-7 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS.
In 2003, I hosted my First Annual 7on7 National Championship and I hosted a 7on7 National Championship in 2004, 2005, and 2006. My goal was to get Great Athletes to one area where I could evaluate them and then help them with all of the Various College Coaches.
The only drawback was that the College Coaches wanted to see the Hidden Gems in a game-type highlight film and so those 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 Bowl Games or even the practices and so the Game Film is a great tool to College Coaches.
My Mission Statement and Goal in hosting The Max Emfinger All-American Bowl Game Classics 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, therefore helping him to Receive a Football Scholarship.
In 2005, I hosted my 1st Annual All-American Bowl Game and in Thirteen Games in Thirteen Years, my wife, Ginger, and I have helped 1,268 High School Football Players to Receive a Football Scholarship. Most of these Players came to our first Bowl Game Practice without a Single Scholarship Offer. This Total Also Counts some Players who did not have a Scholarship Offer and Committed to Play in our All-American Bowl Game, but Received an Offer and did not play in our Game. Their also were over 1,000 Players who we know that we helped that also did not play in our Game.
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. After the Game, Jackson (#25) Signed with Alabama and then, after Three Years, he decided to come out early and he became a #1 Draft Choice in the 2010 NFL Draft for the Houston Texans.
Another 2007 Player, RB Alfred Morris (#46), who Signed with Florida Atlantic and was Drafted by the Redskins and is Currently with the Dallas Cowboys, also did not have a Single Offer at the First Monday Practice.
Other 2007 Players included SLOT Marquis Maze, OT Marcel Jones, OT Lee Ziemba, DT Terrell McClain, DT Alfred McCullough, DT Drake Nevis, MLB Brandon Maye, and RET Phillip Livas and LeMarcus Gibson (In Photo Above), who both Coached in our 2012 All-American Bowl Game.
My First Annual Max Emfinger’s Super Elite Top Gun Camp was in July of 2003. Later, in 2006 in Honolulu, Hawaii with some Incredible Measurables from a lot of Players, including DE Sam Fehoko.
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, Rate, Rank, and Promote him. There will always be “Diamonds in the Rough” to be found.
In 2010, at the Fifth Annual Super Elite Top Gun Camp, there were some Amazing and Incredible Unknown Players, including WR Odell Beckham Jr (In Photo), ATH Ronald Martin, ATH Ameer Abdullah, CB Terrence Tusan, RB Julian Hayes, ATH Derrick Milton, ATH Denzeil Warner, CB Corey Trim, and RB Tyree Bracken.
Martin was outstanding at both Passing Quarterback for Coach Sonny Detmer and Coach John Fourcade and also for Wide Receiver Coach Wesley Walker. Tusan, from Euless-Trinity, Texas, played Cornerback at the Top Gun Camp and he was one of the best Cover Cornerbacks in his skills camp for Cornerback Coach Bobby Jackson. Bracken was Outstanding catching the Football for Running Backs Coach Leon Bray and he ran the Fastest Forty of any of all of the Skill Players with a 4.37 Forty. Ronald Martin ran a 4.0 Flat Pro-Shuttle and had a 39.5-Inch Vertical Jump.
Odell Beckham Jr, Ronald Martin, Corey Trim, Ameer Abdullah, and Denzeil Warner were outstanding for the whole 2010 Max Emfinger Super Elite Top Gun Camp as they all made impossible catches, time and time again. In fact, Martin and Beckham made numerous one-handed catches that even had our coaches impressed.
Martin (#26) and Beckham (#43) at the 2010 Super Elite Top Gun Camp were in the Same Recruiting Class and both signed with LSU. Beckham started as a True Freshman in 2011 and was a Freshman All-American. Beckham was also Selected as an NFL First Round Draft Choice by The New York Giants in The 2014 NFL Draft and after a Very Impressive 2014 NFL Scouting Combine.
Trim and Abdullah were Incredible at Cover Cornerback on Defense in the Max Emfinger 2010 Super Elite Combine Camp. Abdullah Signed with Nebraska and Trim Signed with Louisiana Lafeyette and both became Super-Stars.
Hayes and Junior Tyree Bracken were the most impressive running backs. Marlin Lane was very impressive at times, at the Super Combine Camp, but he was still slowed by his Junior Knee Injury and he was still in rehab on it. Bracken with the fastest forty time was unbelievable at times in catching the football, coming out of the backfield. Milton recorded the best Vertical Jump when he jumped 41-Inch Vertical Jump. Milton also recorded a 125-inch Standing Broad Jump.
Hayes, made some incredible plays and he weighed 228 pounds when he ran a 4.52 Forty. Out of all of the great performances, Hayes was voted by the Top Gun Coaches as the MVP of the Super Elite Top Gun Skills Camp.
On Nebraska 2015, Pro-Day, Ameer Abdullah was pretty Incredible as he is the only player to accomplish most of the same Incredible Times that he recorded in 2010 at the Super Elite Combine as he recorded an Incredible 42.5 Vertical Jump, an equally Incredible 3.95 Shuttle, and a great 130 Standing Broad Jump.
The 29 Reps on Bench Press by Abdullah was also Outstanding at Nebraska Pro-Day and he also did a very good 4.45 Forty in preparation for being another #1 Draft Choice from our 2010 Super Elite Combine and Camp.
Two Super-Stars from the 2010 All-American Bowl Game were TE Will Tye (6-2, 257, 4.57, 31.5, 4.54, 112) of Florida State and Stony Brook and SS Sam Carter of TCU. Both Tye and Carter were MVP’s in the 2010 All-American Bowl Game, but both of their situations changed after they left our 2010 All-American Bowl Game as MVP.
Tye #44 was an MVP Tight End on the East Team and he Signed with Florida State, but Transferred after two years to Stony Brook and has been outstanding for Three Years. Tye could become a High Draft Choice with his Incredible Measurables.
Carter was a Quarterback Super-Star, just like Ronald Martin, in High School and he was the West Team Quarterback MVP in our 2010 All-American Bowl Game. After Carter Signed with TCU, as a Super Athlete, he moved to Strong Safety and was a Super-Star Play-Man for Four Years for the Horned Frogs.
Carter #17, who was an Original Hurricane Katrina Victim, also had Sensational Measurables in High School, recording a 4.5 Forty; a 116 Standing Broad Jump; and a 4.2 Shuttle. Carter Scored an 1200 SAT. At TCU Pro-Day, Carter Recorded a 4.58 Forty; a 31.5 Vertical; a 4.26 Shuttle; and a 112 Standing Broad Jump.
