Every year, seemingly just like clockwork, hype builds for the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Central Texas Regional). Things were no different this time around, in fact.
NFL veteran Michael Ray Garvin along with NFL veteran trainers Reggie Young and Gerard Lewis were among the instructors. The participants, of course, were the biggest winners.
There was no shortage of talent at the workout, and although there were a number of impressive prospects in this group, what follows is a closer look at some of the notables.
Reece Beauchamp, QB, 2022, Vandegrift (TX): The 6-foot-1 and 180-pounder turned plenty of heads. Same thing goes for Omari Evans from Shoemaker (TX).
De’Andre Exford, RB, 2021, Shoemaker (TX): Whether running or catching the ball, the 5-7 and 175-pounder could not be stopped. From start to finish, too.
Noah Maidlow, RB, 2021, Georgetown (TX): The 5-9 and 185-pounder has been on campus at several schools, perhaps the most notable being Stephen F. Austin.
Tanyon Zachary, OL, 2022, Lubbock Cooper (TX): The 6-5 and 265-pounder passed the eye test. A bit raw, it’s only a matter of time before he figures out things.
James Dawn, OL, 2022, New Braunfels (TX): The 6-3 and 290-pounder possesses plenty of upside. A couple years from now, watch out, sky could be the limit.
Savonte Sanford-Paige, DB, 2021, Harker Heights (TX): A target of teams in Conference USA, the 6-2 and 190-pounder was the top prospect, regardless of position.
Jadon Scott, DB, 2021, Alamo Heights (TX): Tough and gritty, smart and athletic the 5-11 and 170-pounder opened up many eyes. His name is one to remember.
Taj Johnson, LB, 2022, Cedar Ridge (TX): The 5-11 and 175-pounder has already been on a visit to SMU. More trips could materialize, in the near future as well.
Ian MacDonald, LB, 2021, Edmond Memorial (TX): Big and strong, athletic for his size too, the 6-1 and 195-pounder made the worthwhile trip to the Lone Star State.
James Windrow, LB, 2021, New Braunfels (TX): The 5-11 and 205-pounder looked the part and played the part. He has some tools to work with, no question about it.
Jaycob Sifuentes, DL, 2022, South San Antonio (TX): Determined to make a name for himself, the 6-4 and 238-pounder did just that. On a very big stage, no less.
Micah Harrison, DL, 2021, Tivy (TX): The 6-2 and 255-pounder did rather well, as did Travien Brown from Round Rock (TX) and Braeden Howell from Burnet (TX).
