| Arie McQuaig Jr. |
Durango HS, NV, RB/LB, 6-0, 217, Overall MVP & Strongest Man Skill
McQuaig had a spectacular day from start to finish. He ran a 4.59 40, 4.39 shuttle, and had a 29-inch vertical he also benched 185-pounds 28 times. He is a massive one cut back that can really ride out. He could also project as a linebacker at the next level.
| || Reagan Enger |
Centennial HS, CA, 6-2, 208, QB MVP
Enger is a big athletic quarterback that can really sling the ball. He ran a 4.79 40, 4.45 shuttle, and had a 30.5-inch vertical. He stands tall in the pocket and can deliver strike after strike just a great performance from start to finish.
| || Jalen Jones-Haines |
West Salem, OR, RB, 5-9, 166, RB MVP
This running back did a great job of running routes out of the backfield by creating space with his lateral movement. He was then able to use his hands away from his body to haul in passes and get vertical quickly.
| Anthony Cota |
Sierra HS, CA, RB, 6-2, 204, Combine King
Cota put up some mind boggling testing numbers. He ran a 4.53 40, 4.31 shuttle, and had a 37-inch vertical. He also had a 10-2 BJ and benched 185-pounds 23 times. Those are some sick testing numbers for a huge running back.
| Bill-Bijon Parker |
Fairfax HS, CA, 6-2, 157, WR MVP
Parker showed out again at an NUC event. He ran a 4.61 40, 4.47 shuttle, and had a 26-inch vertical. Parker is just a really smooth route runner with soft hands and excellent body control.
| David Wells |
Clovis North HS, CA, TE, 6-7, 210, TE MVP
Wells is a giant tight end that causes matchup problems for any defender. He is a great route runner with good body control and soft hands. He had a 27-inch vertical and an 8-8 BJ. San Diego State got a steal with this TE.
| Cameron Akins |
Cathedral HS, CA, WR, 6-2-1/2, 170, Dodie Donnell
Akins represented the host school by being the most dominate two-way player during the 7-on-7 tournament. He ran a 4.61 40, 4.48 shuttle, and had a 30-inch vertical.
| DeShawn Thompson |
Shadow Ridge HS, NV, WR, 5-10, 155, Fastest Man
Thompson ran a blazing 4.48 40 and had a 4.37 shuttle. He also has a 29-inch vertical. This is one really athletic slot receiver. He has the speed to get deep and the speed to pull away from defenders after the catch.
| Will Kreitler |
Gilbert HS, AZ, OL, 6-1, 258, OL MVP
Kreitler has a great build for a potential OC at the next level. He ran a 5.39 40 and had a 21.5-inch vertical. He did a nice job of staying squared up on the pass rushers during the lineman one-on-ones.
| Keoni Taylor |
Garces Memorial HS, CA, OL, 6-3-1/2, 281, Co-Strongest Man Line
Taylor has great size and strength for a potential offensive guard at the next level. He ran a solid 5.34 40 and benched 185-pounds 28 times. His size and strength gave fits for the defensive lineman in this camp.
| Benji Palu |
Burlingame HS, CA, OL, 6-0, 285, Co-Strongest Man Line
Palu proved to have the girth, strength, and low center of gravity to cause interior defensive lineman problems during the one-on-ones. He benched 185-pounds 28 times.
| Austin Terry |
California HS, CA, LB, 6-0-1/2, 191, LB MVP
Terry had a great day competing against some really good running backs. He showed off his great lateral movement with a 4.37 shuttle and he benched 185-pounds 17 times.
| Preston Hodges |
Independence HS, CA, S, 6-0, 180, DB MVP
Hodges has good size for a safety and is very athletic. He ran a solid 4.7 40, 4.3 shuttle, and had a 30-inch vertical. He did a great job of covering a ton of acreage in the secondary. Pretty good ball skills also.
| Nick Caslaneda |
Bell GHS, CA, S, 5-11-1/2, 195, Leadership Award
This safety is built like a linebacker and he is one tough hombre. He had a 30-inch vertical and a 4.52 shuttle. But it was his vocal leadership that set him apart from the rest of the participants in the camp.
| Ma'O Tosi |
East HS, AK, DL, 6-0, 277, DL MVP
Who says they don't play football in Alaska. This giant nose tackle destroyed offensive lineman with his pad level and quickness. He had a 22-inch vertical and benched 185-pounds 14 times.
| || Sam McAloon|
Green Valley HS, CA, DL, 6-0-1/2, 213, Co-Strongest Man Line
McAloon pound for pound may have been the strongest player at this camp. He benched 185-pounds 28 times and had a27-inch vertical. He also had a 9-1 BJ. Those are numbers like an athletic inside linebacker.
