With NFL veteran Ken Stills as lead instructor, and with help from NFL veteran trainers Rodney Beasley and John Holman, the end result of course was a solid finished product at the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Midwest Super) at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton (OH).
Although there were many scholarship-worthy prospects in attendance, numerous others fit in that category. Below is a preview of some of the top performers, all who can now be considered as possible All-American Bowl candidates for one of the upcoming games later on this year.
Eli Stanley, QB, 2023, Norwayne (OH): The 6-foot and 190-pounder could end being a good fit with a team in the Mid-American Conference (MAC). Monitor the situation.
Lamar Sperling, RB, 2023, Archbishop Hoban (OH): Another individual that seems destined to play in the MAC, or similar, the 5-10 and 190-pounder turned plenty of heads.
Mason Bowman, RB, 2023, Monterey (TN): The 5-11 and 190-pounder did well in this environment. No surprise, Army, Austin Peay, Middle Tennessee State are interested in him.
Malik Kamara, RB, 2024, Central Crossing (OH): Regardless of position or class distinction, the 6-foot and 185-pounder, with MAC feelers, just might end up as the best of this bunch.
Jake Gill, RB, 2023, Norwayne (OH): The 5-11 and 190-pounder went out and took care of business. As a result, he left a lasting impression on the coaching staff and his peers.
David Coffey, WR, 2024, De La Salle (IL): Back for the second time in as many months, the 6-2 and 170-pounder opened eyes. Again, no less. He will play on Saturdays.
Ty Miller, DB, 2023, Uniontown Lake (OH): Akron and Youngstown State appear to be on top of the list for the 5-10 and 175-pounder. It’s only a matter of time before the offers follow.
Devon Morris, LB, 2023, Archbold (OH): Big and string, quick and fast, the 6-foot and 200-pounder has a well-rounded game. His name is certainly one to remember.
Christopher Horning, LB, 2023, Columbine (CO): The 6-foot and 210-pounder has the skill set that would seem to interest the likes of schools in the Big Sky Conference.
James Glover-Tyson, OL, 2023, DeSales (KY): In contact with the Ohio Valley Conference, and capable of playing on both sides of the ball, the 6-7 and 375-pounder is the real deal.
John Jones, OL, 2023, Valley Forge (OH): The 6-4 and 250-pounder was difficult to deal with down in the trenches. He gave opponents fits. From start to finish, worth noting.
Justin Moore, DL, 2023, Lucasville Valley (OH): Communication between the 6-5 and 260-pounder and teams in the MAC is heading in the right direction. Success awaits him.
Bryson Getz, DL, 2023, Akron (OH): The 6-2 and 230-pounder has loads of potential. It won’t be long before he figures out things. Then, watch out. Sky is the limit.
Marques Turner, DL, 2023, Buchtel (OH): Intense, seemingly always ready for challenge, the 6-3 and 220-pounder has a motor that does not stop. It’s all gas and no breaks.

Worth mentioning, periodically and often within days, more information about the workout will be added in this space. That said, feel free to check back on a regular basis for the much-needed insight.
Also, most participants at the recent All-American Combine will soon be provided with plenty of additional details on a potential exclusive membership to the invite-only Red Zone Prospects (click here).
Additionally, likely late in the summer, invitations will be extended to one of the brand’s upcoming All-American Bowls held at NFL stadium and nationally broadcast on ESPN’s family of networks.
Games take place at Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium, Falcons’ Mercedes Benz Stadium, Texans’ NRG Stadium or Jaguars’ EverBank Field, among other venues.
Moving forward, the Blue-Grey Football Selection Committee will consider a number of different factors before making any decision on potential invites to the All-American Bowl. Stay tuned.
