There was certainly no shortage of talented prospects in the Class of 2022 at the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl held at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium on Jan. 10. In the end, however, East narrowly prevailed over West, 27-23.
Sun Belt Conference target Karl Ligon of the East was in the conversation for Offensive MVP and rightfully so. Together, with his counterpart Mid-American Conference (MAC) target Shoka Griffin, the tandem was often unstoppable.
Kansas commit Kai Kunz was largely, but not solely responsible for the success of the West. He threw a 7-yard touchdown pass in the first half, also added a 10-yard touchdown run in the second half and was named Offensive MVP.
Cincinnati commit Drew Logan was seemingly in a class all his own, from start to finish for the East, and was named Defensive MVP. Also worth mentioning, Conference USA target Jody Easter had his name in the running for the honor.
Oklahoma State commit Chance Clements and Boise State commit Mason Jacobsen turned heads for the West, also the likes of Air Force commit Alec Falk, Big Sky Conference target Jack Plote and Missouri Valley Football Conference target Chaylin Peine.
Big Ten Conference target Devin Runnels, Conference USA target Taron Williams and Missouri Valley Football Conference target Barry Duff opened eyes for the East, with Arkansas State commit Carson Hintz and Marshall commit Conner Yazell.
Missouri Valley Football Conference target Zane Burns, American Athletic Conference target Scott Kean and Southern Conference target Dylan Ramirez understood the offense particularly well for the East and directed the unit throughout.
The trio had help from the likes of Missouri Valley Football Conference target Cameron Paul, Southern Conference target Blaine Duncan, Sun Belt Conference target Gray Leaphart and Ohio Valley Conference target Connor Delashmitt.
For the West and its coach NFL veteran Seneca Wallace, Big Sky Conference targets Emmerick Dopona, Caleb Rist and Anthony Aguirre, with Mountain West Conference targets Antwuan Jackson and Garrett Stone, collectively did an admirable job.
For the East and its coach NFL veteran Ken Stills, MAC targets C.J. Harvey, Kadyn Warner, Sean Conway and Nahji Mabry did well. Same things goes for Missouri Valley Football Conference targets Deven Lukes, Warren Kinney and Elijah LaFleur.
