It was the second time the National Underclassmen Combine hosted an event in Los Angeles but a lack of star power was nonexistent. Many talented played showed up with hopes of making it to the next level, but after five highly competitive hours at the combine, some athletes' ability was above and beyond.
Leading the pack was Misson Hills HS' Aaron Leauma. Leauma is 5'11 245 lbs of power and tenacity, bench pressing 185 lbs 16 times while looking like a man amongst boys during 1 on 1's. He has the kind of drive that spells doom for opposing linemen and by winning the camp's Overall MVP award, looks to be a future D1 player.
Adam Sanchez (Bishop Amat) took home WR MVP honors and displayed an impressive skill set. At 5'7 163, Sanchez had a 30 inch vertical, 8'5 broad jump, ran a 4.59 shuttle, 4.60 40, bench pressed 155 lbs 19 times, had outstanding hands and ran good routes. There is a lot to like about this rising junior.
Logan Scott (Chaminade Prep) is a natural born leader. He hustles without hesitation, listens at all times and is the most vocal player on the field. The 6'0 163 lb Scott was an easy choice for the leadership award, as he possesses everything a coach could possibly ask for from his QB.
Jonathan Jerozal (Canyon) has plenty of zip on his pass and has the footwork of a tap dancer. The 5'10.5 173 lb Jerozal also runs a 4.55 shuttle and a terrific attitude, which earned him the QB MVP.
Cactus HS' Denzell Dotson is 6'1 290 lbs of domination. The easy choice for OL MVP, Dotson's aforementioned size enabled him to bench press 185 lbs 17 times while nuetralizing the opposing linemen during 1 on 1's.
Props on the defensive end must also go out to LB MVP Darnell Murray (Citrus Hill) and DB MVP Steven Russell (Narbonne), who put forth a solid effort as well.
From end to end, LA's second sophomore combine was first in class.
