For the third time in as many years, more than a few prospects did well in the spotlight, and thus, were likely discovered at the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Colorado Regional).
Accordingly, NFL veteran Mark McMillian, NFL veteran trainers Reggie Young and Sean White, also brand All-American Bowl alumni Jackson Block and Elijah Reed gave rave reviews.
What follows next then, naturally, is a bit of much-needed insight on the many individuals in attendance and those that did a good job of taking advantage of the all-important opportunity.
Ryan Bornemeier, QB, Dalhart (TX): The 6-foot and 165-pound junior was about as athletic as they come. Gavin Herberg from Pine Creek (CO) was in the same category, for that matter.
William Bobrik-Davenport, QB, Coronado (CO): The 6-3 and 170-pound junior had same body type as Kyle Remington from Mullen (CO) and Jack Helzer from East (CO).
Caden Meis, RB, Legend (CO): Apparently, Colorado State, Montana State and Northern Colorado are among the fans of the 5-10 and 195-pound junior. And rightfully so.
Caleb Gerber, RB, Pebble Hills (TX): With schools interested from the Mountain West Conference, and an offer to Air Force, sky’s the limit for the 5-10 and 170-pound junior.
Spencer Peterson, RB, Pine Creek (CO): The 6-foot and 178-pound sophomore turned heads, along with Jacob Krull from Scottsbluff (NE) and Chris Yoo from Colorado (CO).
Zachary Johnson, WR, Douglas County (CO): The 5-9 and 155-pound junior was a reliable presence not only over the middle, also along the sideline and down the field.
Matheu Sands, WR, Prairie View (CO): No stranger to the setting, the 5-10 and 164-pound junior held his own. Same thing can be said about Isaiah Talapu from Pine Creek (CO).
Jase Lanto, TE, Peyton (CO): The 6-6 and 235-pound sophomore looked the part. And played the part, too. Once a senior, he could be a close to a finished product.
Trevor Greenlee, DB, Grandview (CO): The 6-1 and 170-pound junior was explosive during skills testing, there was no questions about it, and he earned the respect of his peers
Daniel Bone, DB, Pine Creek (CO): Long and rangy, the 6-2 and 175-pound junior went out and competed on every rep. Thus, he endeared himself to the entire staff.
Cormier Euell, LB, Cherry Creek (CO): The 6-4 and 215-pound junior impressed, as did Gage Dauenbaugh from Elizabeth (CO) and Zachary D’Amico from Arvada West (CO).
Malek Jackson, LB, Vista Peak Prep (CO): The 5-10 and 200-pound junior opened eyes, with Kole Lundquist from Highlands Ranch (CO) and Colby Jaramillo from Regis Jesuit (CO).
Mikey McCelland, OL, Chaparral (CO): With interest from the Mountain West Conference, mainly though Wyoming, the 6-2 and 250-pound junior is heading in the right direction.
Cameron Reiman, OL, Palmer Ridge (CO): The 6-3 and 270-pound sophomore grabbed the attention of many onlookers, along with Jacob Tafoya from La Junta (CO).
Hunter Paxton, DL, Sterling (CO): The 6-4 and 210-pound junior was difficult to stop, particularly when he came off the edge. His name might be one to remember.
Bennie Chacon, DL, Centauri (CO): With another growth spurt apparently in the works, the 6-2 and 240-pound junior appears poised to develop into a legit recruit.

Additionally, those who did well at this workout, in due time, could be invited to one of the brand’s All-American Bowls held at NFL stadium and nationally broadcast on ESPN’s family of networks.
The games take place at one of several well-known venues: Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium and Jacksonville Jaguars’ EverBank Field.
Moving forward, the Blue-Grey Football Selection Committee will consider a number of different factors before making an all-important decision on invites to the All-American Bowl. Stay tuned.
