Part II – The 2019 Lestini Group National Pro Football Free Agent Combine Highlighted
By Great Skill Players!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger
I was very Honored and Privileged Again on Saturday and Sunday of January 19 and 20, The Weekend Before The Annual College Football All-American Senior Bowl Game, to be a Super Scout again at The Eighteenth Annual Lestini Group National Pro Football Free Agent Tryout Camp in Mobile, Alabama. Camp Director John L. Lestini Jr and his wife Mary Jo Lestini, who is The Camp Coordinator have been Putting-On this National Free Agent Tryout Camp and Super Combine for 18 Years.
This National Free Agent Tryout Camp and Super Combine gives Former College and Former Professional Players, who might be “Flying Under The Radar” an Excellent Opportunity to show what they can do and Try To-Help them to get Themselves into or back into The NFL, Canadian Football League, Alliance Football League, World Football League, Europe Football League, Arena Football League, or Any Other of The New Professional Developmental Football Leagues which might be Starting To-Play in 2019. There was Also a CFL Saskatchewan Roughriders Scout In Attendance and Four Other Coaches and Player Personnel Representing The AFL Albany Empire Team.
On Saturday Night, Some of These Free Agent Players Checked-In Early and were in The Hotel Lobby were able to meet Some of The Lestini Combine Super Coaches and I was able to meet a few of These Players. Two Really Good-Looking Players who were Sitting in The Hotel Lobby with their Player Agent and I was able To-Talk to Both of Them and Get some Vital Information on Them and Evaluate Their Personality and Abilities.
These Two Great-Looking Players who Checked-In Early and were with their Super Player Agent Calvin Williams were Wide Receiver Jazeric Peterson of Faulkner University and Cornerback and Kick Returner Dallin Finley of Southwest Minnesota State University. Calvin Williams also was Representing Super Linebacker Maurice Falls of East Carolina and Super Linebacker Trey Thomas (#24) of Eastern Kentucky University.
All of The Lestini Coaching Staff Family Would like To Give A Very Special Thanks to Two of Our Super Player Agents, including Super Player Agent Calvin Williams who Represented Those Four Lestini Super Free Agents and Super Player Agent Tony Mangini who Represented an Incredible Seven Lestini Super Free Agents, including Super Wide Receiver/Tight End Darius Clark of Newberry College; SLOT Receiver Marcus Campbell of LaGrange College; SLOT Receiver Evan Cain of Western New England University; Running Back Robert Catchings of Lincoln University; Running Back/Strong Safety Gerald Childs of Wisconsin-Eau Claire; Super Tight End Benjamin Galbraith of Delta State; and Defensive Tackle Jacob Benegas of New Mexico State and Western Colorado University.
We had Around 50 Super Free Agent Players who Originally Signed-Up To-Attend The Lestini National Free Agent Tryout Camp and Super Combine, but due to the Terrible Weather Forecasts, including Freezing Weather, only 20 Players were able to Participate in the Event that was Highlighted by Four Players Who Broke a 4.0 in The Pro-Shuttle and Two Other Players Who Ran in The 4.1’s of The Pro-Shuttle.
Our Lestini Super Free Agents Combine Had The Great Privilege to Perform In This Incredible And Beautiful New University Of South Alabama Indoor Facility.
Although we were able to Use This Beautiful New University Of South Alabama Indoor Facility, The Weather Was Still A Huge Major Factor, because The Temperature was 35 Degrees when we Started The Lestini Super Combine at 10:00 A.M. When we had our Initial Team Meeting in The Center of The Indoor Facility Field, All of These Athletes were Fully-Covered with Long Sleeve Shirts and Coats. Then when we Started The Combine, with Coach Wes Courier Leading All of the Players in His Incredible and Spectacular Warm-Up Workout, All of The Players had to Disrobe “Down To Their Lestini Free Agent Combine Shirt with Their Player Number on it.
I, However, got to Keep-On Both of my Jackets, My Dallas Cowboys Wind Breaker and My Houston Oilers Winter Coat, because I was Really Cold.
The Lestini Professional Free Agents Had Some Incredible Speed Measurables!
In The Lestini Combine, Coach Ron Estay was The Coordinator of The Most Important Speed Measurable in The Pro-Agility Shuttle and he did another Amazing Job with his Pro-Shuttle Instruction as evidence that an Unbelievable Four Players Broke a “Mind-Boggling” 4.0 Flat and Another Incredible 7 of 13 Skill Players recorded an “Unbelievable” 4.2 Pro-Shuttle or Better and One Defensive End/Tight End Recorded an Incredible 4.31 Pro-Shuttle.
The Most Incredible Pro-Shuttle of The 2019 Lestini Super Combine was by #3 CB/KR Bradley Jefferson of Averett University with an “Unbelievable”
3.87 Pro-Shuttle and Another Amazing Pro-Shuttle was a 3.94 Pro-Shuttle by #7 Defensive Back Kunle Ayinde of The University of Minnesota.
The Other Two Players who Broke The 4.0 Flat Pro-Shuttle Mark were #11 Slot Receiver Evan Cain of Western New England University with a 3.97 Pro-Shuttle and #2 Cornerback Dallin Finley, who I met on Saturday Night, in The Hotel Lobby, Ran an Outstanding 3.98 Pro-Shuttle.
Three Other Wide Receivers ran a 4.2 or Better Pro-Shuttle, including #1 WR Jazeric Peterson of Faulkner University with a 4.13 Pro-Shuttle; #6 WR Jeffery Barnett of Trine University with a 4.11 Pro-Shuttle; and #14 Jareth Embry of Belhaven University with a 4.15 Pro-Shuttle. These Three Outstanding Wide Receivers Would Join Slot Receiver #11 Slot Receiver Evan Cain With a 3.97 Pro-Shuttle and The Four Other Skill Players Who Recorded in The 3.9’s and 3.8 with Incredible Pro Shuttle in This Speed Measurable In The Super Combine.
Wide Receiver Embry Returned for his Second Lestini Super Free Agent Combine as he Recorded Some Incredible Speed Measurables, including a 4.37 Forty in The 2018 Lestini Super Combine.
The Other Super-Star Athlete who had an Incredible Forty and Pro-Shuttle for his Position was #9 Tyler Affa and The Really incredible Fact About Affa is that he did not Play High School Football, but Walked-On at Seton Hill University and Lettered Two Years, after Staring at Lackawanna National Junior College. Affa is 6-1 and 235 and he Ran a 4.56 in The Forty and did a 4.31 in The Pro-Shuttle. He could Play DE, TE, FB, or Linebacker.
I am going to Rate Affa (#44) as a Tight End, because he made several Great Catches in The One-On-One Drills and he Impressed all of Our Lestini Combine Coaches. The Tight End/Defensive End MEARS RATING Standard is Set at 4.8 in The Pro-Shuttle and so Affa Received The Maximum 400 MEARS RATING POINTS in The Pro-Shuttle.
The Wide Receiver MEARS RATING Standard is Set at 4.6, so all Four Wide Receivers were given The Maximum 400 MEARS RATING POINTS. The Cornerback MEARS RATING Standard is Set at 4.6 and so All Three Defensive Backs were given The Maximum 400 MEARS RATING POINTS!
The One-On-One Player Drills Competition Was Really Outstanding!
As I Explained before! The Weather was Really Cold. So, It Was Really Cold when These Lestini Free Agent Athletes Were Running Their Forty-Yard Dashes and While I had My Two Jackets and Three Shirts on to Keep Warm.
It was a Lot More Easy to Run a Pro-Shuttle and Do a Standing Broad Jump, but Running a Forty-Yard Dash in 35 Degree Temperature, is not Easy, so I have Concentrated on These Great Athletes, Their Incredible Pro-Shuttles, and Outstanding One-On-One Player Drills Competition.
When we got through with The Super Combine Part of The Lestini Combine Camp, we realized that we had Three Wide Receivers, Three Slot Receivers, and Two Tight Ends, and all Eight were Outstanding in The One-On-One Player Drills Competition. Two of The Three Wide Receivers ran a 4.2 or Better Pro-Shuttle, including #1 WR Jazeric Peterson (6-0, 195) of Faulkner University with a 4.13 Pro-Shuttle; and #14 Jareth Embry (6-0, 175) of Belhaven University with a 4.15 Pro-Shuttle.
The Other Outstanding Wide Receiver/Tight End was #4 Darius Clark (6-1, 220) of Newberry College who Recorded an Outstanding 4.29 Pro-Shuttle. I Will Rate and Rank Clark as a Potential Tight End, because he Would Rate and Rank Higher at That Position and He Could Become an Outstanding Tight End at The Next Level.
Slot Receiver #11 Evan Cain (5-9, 180) of Western New England University also Ran an Incredible 3.97 Pro-Shuttle and #6 WR Jeffery Barnett (5-7, 165) of Trine University Ran a 4.11 Pro-Shuttle; and They Joined The Other Three Receivers Who Recorded Incredible Pro Shuttles in This Speed Measurable In The Lestini Super Free Agent Combine. Slot Receiver#10 Marcus Campbell (5-9, 175) of LaGrange College Also Recorded a 4.34 Pro-Shuttle, and Campbell Made Some Great Catches in The One-On-One Player Drills Competition.
Our Two Tight Ends were Incredible as they also ran Unbelievable Pro-Shuttles for a Big Tight End. Both Tight Ends were Also Unbelievably Impressive in The One-On-One Player Drills Competition as #31 Benjamin Galbraith (6-6, 255) of Delta State University Recorded an Unbelievable 4.29 Pro-Shuttle, while #9 Tyler Affa (6-1, 235) of Seton Hill University, Who Was One of The Most Impressive Players at The Lestini Combine, Recorded an Impressive 4.31 Pro-Shuttle.
We had Six Defensive Backs for our One-On-One Player Drills Competition against The Six Receivers, but we only had Three Cover Cornerbacks to Really Try and Attempt To Cover The Outstanding Wide Receivers, Slot Receivers, and Tight Ends, but Those Three Cornerbacks had Incredible Speed Measurables.
The Most Incredible Pro-Shuttle of The 2019 Lestini Super Combine was Recorded by #3 Cornerback and Return Man Bradley Jefferson (5-7, 155) of Averett University with an “Unbelievable” and “Mind-Boggling” 3.87 Pro-Shuttle. Two Other Amazing Pro-Shuttles were a 3.94 Pro-Shuttle by #7 Defensive Back Kunle Ainde (5-11, 203) of The University of Minnesota and #2 Cornerback Dallin Finley (5-9, 189) of Southwest Minnesota State University, who I met on Saturday Night, in The Hotel Lobby, and who Ran an Outstanding 3.98 Pro-Shuttle.
Although the Three or Four Cornerbacks Had Outstanding Speed Measurables and They Looked Extremely Fast in The Lestini Free Agent Super Combine Forties, They Did Not Run Extremely Fast Forties, but They Were Extremely Quick and Extremely Aggressive in The One-On-One Player Drills Competition.
Also, most of The Wide Receivers and Defensive Backs wanted To Play both Positions in The One-On-One Competition, which was Great, because I was able To Evaluate Their Speed and Quickness on Both Sides of the Football.
All of The Lestini Super Combine Coaches have helped John and Mary Jo Lestini to make this Super Free Agents Combine, The Greatest and Most Impressive Free Agents Super Combine in the Country, for all 18 Years.
I would still have to say that the most exciting part for me as a Super Scout is to see all of these Great Athletes “In Action and Showing Their Stuff” on Sunday in front of all of The Coaches and Scouts from various Professional Teams and Professional Leagues. There were a Few Canadian Professional Teams at the Super Combine and Super Workout on Sunday.
THE MEARS RATING SYSTEM
When I was with The Dallas Cowboys in 1975-77, we had a Rating System and when I left The Cowboys in 1977, I developed a similar Rating System that we had used in the 1976 and 1977 NFL Draft. The 1977 NFL Draft was The Tony Dorsett Draft and we used this Rating System to conclude that Dorsett was The Dallas Cowboys #1 Player in that 1977 NFL Draft.
Although I developed My Rating System, when I left The Dallas Cowboys, I did not Start using The Rating System until 2001, when NIKE Sports developed a similar Rating System and called it The SPARQ RATING SYSTEM. I then decided to bring back my Rating System and I called it The MAX EMFINGER ASSET RATING SYSTEM or MEARS RATING.
ASSET stands for Agility, Strength, Stamina, Explosiveness, and Technique. These are The Essential tools for a Superior Athletic Performance in any Competitive Sport or Event. This new MEARS RATING SYSTEM or a similar 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 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 Team and you only have only One Draft Choice Left on your Current NFL Draft Board, there needs to be a 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.
By 2001, all of the other High School Football Recruiting Services were using the Five-Star Rating System Method which does not Measure Anything. One year, at the start of The Spring, they had 45 Wide Receivers that were Rated a Four-Star. We went to bed one night and the next morning, they only had 25 Wide Receivers. Someone in The Scouting Service had decided that there could only be 25 Four-Star Wide Receivers in The Entire Country and he had demoted 20 of them to a Three-Star Rating.
My 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 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 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, and a Standing Broad Jump.
In this Lestini Super Free Agent Combine, The Lestini Group Coaches Tested all of These Free Agent Players with Two Speed Measurables, including Two Forties and Two Pro-Agility Shuttles; plus Two Standing Broad Jumps.
Quarterbacks, Offensive Linemen, and Kickers are always going to be Very Hard to Measure, because they do Extremely Poor at a Super Combine, so These Three Positions must Be Evaluated very carefully on film or in person and then their MEARS RATING will need to be Estimated and Given a MEARS RATING that their Evaluation Deserves.
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 a Super Football Camp or Combine. 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! You either have to make-up or approximate his Measurables based upon his Game Film Evaluation or Actual Game Evaluation, giving him The Maximum Points on most of his Measurables for his Position.
Most High School and College Football Players do not even know what their Measurables are and you would think that they would, but they do not. 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 or Better. You must keep in mind that with a little instruction and training, most High School and College Football Players can improve on their Speed Measurables by Two and Three Tenth of a Second and on their Agility and Distance Measurables by as much as Six to Eight Inches.

10 OLB/ILB – Trey Thomas – Thomas, From Huber Heights Wayne High School in Ohio, is a Sensational Linebacker on his Highlight Film as he Makes Tackles from Sideline to Sideline. Thomas (#24) also Lines-Up as a Linebacker on The Outside and on The Inside and he Also Blitzes on The Outside.
On his Highlight Film, Thomas Plays Strong-Side Linebacker and on at least Three Plays, Thomas Blitzed and Hit The Quarterback so hard, he Fumbled The Football and his Eastern Kentucky Team Recovered The Fumble. With these Amazing Plays on Defense, it was No-Secret That Thomas was Such a Tremendous Leader on The Great Eastern Kentucky Colonel Defense in 2014 and 2015.
In 2014, Thomas Recorded 73 Tackles, including 10 Tackles for a Loss, 3 Quarterback Sacks, 3 Caused Fumbles, 2 Recovered Fumbles, 5 Pass Breakups, and 3 Quarterback Hurries. Then, in The 2015 Season, after a (5-2, 4-0) Start, Thomas had Recorded a Team-High 39 Tackles, including 6 Tackles for a Loss, 3 Quarterback Sacks, and 3 Forced Fumbles. In The Huge 45-21 Victory Over Tennessee State, Thomas Sealed The Victory, in The Final Minute with a Beautiful Interception.
At The Lestini Super Free Agent Combine, Thomas Recorded a Great 4.34 Pro-Shuttle and a Great 112 Standing Broad Jump. At The Eastern Kentucky Pro-Day, Thomas Recorded a 4.6 Forty, a 122-Inch Standing Broad Jump, and a Tremendous 36,5-Inch Vertical Jump. Thomas Recorded another 4.56 Forty at an NFL Combine and so I Averaged his Three Forties of 4.78 at The Lestini Super Combine; plus his Two NFL Forties of 4.56 and 4.6 and Gave him a 4.64 Forty. His 36.5-Vertical Jump at The Eastern Kentucky Pro-Day was Outstanding.
11 OLB/ILB – Maurice Falls – Falls was an Incredible, Athletic Outside Linebacker in 2014 and he also was on The Pre-Season Dick Butkus Award Watch List for East Carolina University. In 2014, before his Senior Season, Falls was Clocked in an Incredible 4.47 Forty and he also did a Great 36-Inch Vertical Jump at a Summer Super NFL Combine.
These Speed and Agility Measurables For Falls were Fantastic, but his Strength Measurables were Mind-Boggling. Falls (With Muscles Rippling) Recorded an Incredible 645 Squat and Another Incredible 425-Pound Bench Press. These Incredible NFL Measurables Before his Senior Year at East Carolina were Unbelievable, but Falls was also one of The Fastest Outside Linebackers in The Country.
Falls has Always Been Known by The NFL Scouts as An Outstanding, Athletic Outside Linebacker with Great Ability and Falls Finished his Senior Season with 36 Tackles, including 5 Tackles for A Loss, and 2.5 Quarterback Sacks.
In The 2015-2016 Football Season, Falls Played With The Carolina Panthers and Miami Dolphins. His Player Agent, Calvin Williams, has Helped Many Great Professional Athletic Free Agents and he Helped Falls To Get Back into Football and in 2018, Falls Played for The NAL Carolina Energy.
At The Lestini Combine, with The Really Cold Weather, Falls Ran a 4.8 Forty, a 4.46 Pro-Shuttle, and a 108 Standing Broad Jump, but his Previous Measurables were Incredible and so I Averaged his Measurables. His Best Forty Were Two NFL Forties, including a 4.47 Forty and a 4.53 Forty and I Averaged those two Forties with his 4.8 Lestini Combine Forty and So I Gave him a 4.6 Forty. His Best NFL Pro-Shuttle was a 4,41 and his Lestini Pro-Shuttle was a Great 4.46 and so I gave him a 4.43.
12 DT – Jacob Banegas – Benegas is a Real Defensive Freak who has been Double-Teamed by Every Team that he has Played Against in his Football Career. In 2014, As a True Freshman at Pima Community College, after Graduating from Las Cruces High School in New Mexico, Benegas was an Unbelievable Defensive Force on Their Defense.
Banegas was So-Impressive, he was Offered a Scholarship to New Mexico State University, back in his Home Town. Then, in 2015, as a Sophomore at New Mexico State, although Banegas was still being Double-Teamed on Almost Every Single Play, he Still Recorded 20 Tackles, including 8 Solo Tackles, 2 Tackles for a Loss, 1 Quarterback Sack. 1 Interception, and he Recovered 1 Fumble.
Then in 2018, after Transferring to The Western Colorado University Owls, Banegas Recorded 31 Tackles, including 14 Solo Tackles, 1 Quarterback Sack, 2 Tackles for a Loss, and 2 Pass Breakups and was Invited To-Play in The All-American Bowl.
In 2015, as a Sophomore at New Mexico State University, Banegas (Muscles Bulging) Recorded an Incredible 435-Pound Bench Press and a 550-Pound Squat in Two Strength Measursables at a Hudl Super Combine. In that Same Hudl Super Combine, Banegas also Ran a 4.9 Forty and Recorded a 26-Inch Vertical Jump, while Weighing 315-Pounds.
At The 2019 Lestin Super Combine, Banegas Recorded a 5.38 Forty and an Outstanding 4.58 in The Pro-Shuttle. He also Ran a 4.88 Forty at an NFL Combine, so I Averaged his 4.88, 4.9, and 5.38 and Gave him a 5.05 Forty.
13 WR/SLOT/RET – Jeffery Barnett – Barnett is an Unbelievable and Incredible D-III All-American Wide Receiver and Kick Return Man from Trine University. Barnett was also a Track All-American as he Broke The Trine University Long Jump Record as a Sophomore with a Fabulous 23-9.5 Long Jump. Barnett Recorded a Incredible 44-Inch Vertical Jump at NFL Camp.
Then at The Don and Riley Zimmer Indoor Classic, Barnett did a Phenomenal Long Jump of 24-Feet-11.75-Inches which was The Seventh-Best Division III Long Jump at An Indoor Track Meet in History. Barnett was Second in The Country For The 2018 Indoor Track Season and The Best in The History for Trine University.
Barnett Set a Meet Record at 23-8 To-Win The Long Jump at The MIAA Track Championships and he Was Recognized As The Most Valuable Track and Field Athlete. Barnett Finished Second with a 23-6.75 Jump at The NCAA Track Championships as The First Trine All-American in The long Jump.
As a Senior, Barnett was a Really Sensational Kick Return Man. I Spent about Five Minutes watching his Amazing Highlight Film with Two Ninety-Five-Yard Kick Returns for a Touchdown; Two Eighty-Five-Yard Returns for a Touchdown; and Several 80-Yards, 75-Yards, and 65-Yards for a Touchdown. As a Senior, Barnett (#18) Averaged an Incredible 39-Yards Per Kick Return and was Selected to The AP NCAA D-III First Team All-American as well as The AFCA All-American Team.
As a Senior, on a Dominant Running Attack, Barnett Caught 27 Passes for 535-Yards, 2 Touchdowns and 19.8-Yards Per Catch; To Go with his 39-Yards Per Kick Return Yard Average. In The Lestini One-On-One Player Drills Competition, Barnett made Several Great Catches, including a Tremendous Out and Go Pattern and an Outstanding Catch Over The Middle. Barnett also Recorded an Outstanding 4.11 Pro-Shuttle in The Lestini Combine.
14 SLOT – Marcus Campbell – Campbell is From Athens Claarke Central, Georgia, and he is an Outstanding SLOT Wide Receiver who was Selected To The USA South All-Conference Team, as a Junior in 2017 as he Caught 65 Passes.Those 65 Passes was The Second Most Catches in a Single Season for The LaGrange Panthers in Conference Play in History.
Campbell also Led The Panthers in Receiving Yards for The Season with 807-Yards and 4 Touchdowns. In that Same 2017 Football Season, Campbell (#11) also Tied a School Record with an 80-Yard Catch for a Touchdown Against Brevard. In that Same Game Against Brevard, Campbell Set another School Record With 210-Yards Receiving with 7 Catches.
As a Senior in 2018, Campbell Caught 44 Passes for 598-Yards and 4 Touchdowns and After The Season, he was Selected To Play in The All-American Bowl Game for Division D-II and D-III Players, as he Joined Super DE Tyler Affa, DT Jacob Benegas, SS Chris Blanchard, Super SLOT Evan Cain, RB Gerald Childs, Super WR Darius Clark, and Super TE Benjamin Galbraith.
Campbell Recorded a 4.83 Forty at The Lestini Super Combine, but he also Recorded a 4.45 at An NFL Pro-Day Camp and a 4.48 at another Combine. He also Recorded a 36-Inch Vertical Jump at The NFL Pro-Day Camp. With those Three Forties, of 4.45, 4.48, and 4.83, I averaged them and gave him a 4.58. At The Lestini Super Combine, Campbell Recorded Outstanding Speed and Agility Measurables with a Great 4.34 Pro-Shuttle and a Great 111-Inch Standing Broad Jump.
15 SS/FS – Christopher Blanchard – Blanchard is an Aggressive and Outstanding Safety, from Wiggins Stone High School in Mississippi and he can Play all Three Positions in The Secondary. In The Opening Game of his Senior Season in 2018, Against Rockford University, Blanchard Had his Best Game of The Season With a Career-High 8 Tackles, including 6 Solo Tackles and 2 Pass Breakups. Although his MacMurray Highlanders Team Lost This First Game, The Highlanders Won Their Next Six Games and Finished with a Tremendous 7-2 Record.
On his Senior Highlight Film, Blanchard Only Made Two Key Interceptions, but they both were Unbelievable and Incredible. His First Interception was Made at around his Own 20-Yard Line and He Then Started Up-Field Toward The Goal-Line and as he Started Toward The Goal-Line, he Broke-Away From Seven “Would-Be Tacklers” that “Put-Their-Hand-On-Him” and He Then Dived Into The End-Zone For a Touchdown. His Second Interception was a Beautiful Diving-Interception-For-The-Football, with Two Defenders on his Back.
In a 7-2 Senior Season, Blanchard Finished his Nine-Game 2018 Season With 35 Tackles, including 20 Solo Tackles, 2 Tackles for a Loss, 2 Interceptions, and 4 Pass Breakups. After The Season, Blanchard was Selected To The HMAC All-Conference First Team Defense and Then Selected To Play in The All-American Bowl Game With Affa, Benegas, Cain, Campbell, Childs, Clark, and Galbraith.
Although Blanchard is a Super, Strong and Super Aggressive Strong Safety, he is not a Sprinter. In The 35-Degree, Cold Temperature, Blanchard only Ran a 4.85 Forty at The Lestini Super Free Agent Combine, but he also Ran a 4.6 Forty at The Super Hudl Combine and he also Ran a 4.56 and a 4.53 at Two NFL Combines. So, I Averaged his Four Forties and Gave him a 4.63 Forty To-Go with his 33-Inch Vertical Jump and 4.42 Pro-Shuttle at The Hudl Super Combine, along with an Outstanding 300-Pound Bench Press and an Equally Outstanding 450-Pound Squat.
