Year in, and year out, there has been no shortage of talent at the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Las Vegas Regional), with some well-known prospects, and others, under-the-radar recruits.
This time around, it was no different from recent workout’s pasts as NFL veteran Mark McMillian, NFL veteran trainer Reggie Young and brand staff member Keith Franklin came away impressed.
That said, and without further ado, here’s some much-needed insight on the many individuals who stepped up and did well when given the opportunity in front of coaches and scouts in attendance.
Keegan Tharp, QB, Coronado (NV): The 6-foot-3 and 190-pound sophomore did well and has talked with teams in the Big Sky Conference, both Northern Arizona and Southern Utah.
De’Moryea Polidore, RB, Paramount (CA): Compact and durable, the 5-9 and 200-pound junior appears to have a bright future ahead based on his well-rounded effort here.
Blaze Boudreau, WR, Bishop Gorman (NV): The 6-5 and 190-pound junior stood out in the crowd. When push came to shove, around the end zone, he was seemingly unstoppable.
Cody Tucker, WR, Bradshaw Mountain (AZ): Based on his frame and an improving skill set, the 6-3 and 175-pound junior figures to receive looks from schools on the West Coast.
George Bowers, DB, Bakersfield (CA): Big Sky Conference schools such as Northern Arizona and Portland State have expressed interest in the 5-10 and 155-pound sophomore.
Sean Pagaduan, DB, Centennial (NV): Determined and tough, the 5-10 and 170-pound junior didn’t back down from any challenges and was on the better end of many exchanges.
Kamuela-Talo Palakiko, LB, Shadow Ridge (NV): The days of flying underneath the radar are coming to an end for the 6-foot and 170-pound junior. Sooner rather than later, too.
T.K. Fotu, LB, Durango (NV): The 5-10 and 180-pound junior held his own in this setting, so did Jahssiah Maiava from Sierra Vista (NV) and Tavita Ioane from Durango (NV).
John Barber, OL, Faith Lutheran (NV): With a growth spurt likely still in the works, the 6-3 and 220-pound sophomore displayed plenty of upside against the upperclassmen.
Ray’Vhaun Wilkins, DL, Las Vegas (NV): The 6-2 and 210-pound junior was a force to be reckon with. It seemed, no one could stop him during the one-on-one session.

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.
