In recent memory, and in terms of overall growth, no workout on the nationwide circuit has exploded more than the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (North Florida Regional).
Accordingly, with NFL veteran trainer Rodney Beasley as the lead instructor and with the help of NFL veteran Patell Troutman, there were more than enough memorable moments.
That said, in an effort to provide some much-needed and likely valuable insight, what follows is a list of the individuals who left a lasting impression on the coaching staff on hand.
John Hinkell, QB, Satellite (FL): The 6-4 and 200-pound sophomore passed the eye test. And then some, moreover. No surprise, he’s been on campus at Clemson and Florida.
Kolton Richards, QB, Oak Ridge (FL): South Alabama and Stetson could be on the radar for the 6-foot and 205-pound junior with South Alabama. Remember his name.
Luke Morgan, QB, Winter Springs: The 6-2 and 170-pound junior held his own. Same thing can be said about Christopher Squires from Space Coast (FL).
Alex Collier, RB, Orange Park (FL): An ACC target, on the roster but not available, the 5-9 and 160-pound junior plans to attend another workout.
Anthony Brown, RB, Orangewood Christian (FL): The 5-10 and 213-pound junior had an unforeseen engagement and will be at a different workout.

Marcus Wright, WR, The Villages (FL): Florida International and Middle Tennessee State still remain in constant contact with the 6-2 and 210-pound junior.
Gunnar Greenwald, WR, Satellite (FL): The 6-4 and 200-pound junior was a big target. Robert Parker-Crawford from Maclay (FL) has the same type of build.
Trevin Wallace, WR, Jesup (GA): When all is said and done, as an upperclassman, the 6-2 and 205-pound sophomore might turn out to be the best of the bunch.
Elijah Canode, TE, West Nassau (FL): The 6-4 and 230-pound junior could land with a school in the ACC and Wake Forest might be the front-runner right now.

Cameron Moewe, OL, Bishop Kenny (FL): The 6-3 and 240-pound junior has feelers from several programs in the Pioneer Football League, primarily Stetson.
