For the second time in as many years, the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Oklahoma Regional) was a success, this time at Rose State College (OK).
NFL veteran Sheldon Jackson was lead instructor and had help along the way from the likes of Sean Love, Jarrail Jackson and Tom George, among others.
What follows is a closer look at the individuals who left a lasting impression the powers that be, including the coaching staff and scouts present at the workout.
Preston Colbert, QB, Midwest City (OK): The 6-foot and 190-pound junior has been contacted by teams in the Sun Belt Conference, most notably Texas State.
Jacob Switzer, QB, Norman North (OK): Grandson of legendary Barry Switzer, the 6-2 and 175-pound sophomore continued to make a name for himself.
T.J. Chase, QB, Bridge Creek (OK): The 6-2 and 195-pound junior impressed the coaching staff, so did counterpart Cameron McCollum from Westville (OK).
Nathaniel Williams, RB, Edmond Memorial (OK): With plenty of competition, the 5-10 and 180-pound junior was, somehow, able to stick out in the crowd.
Darren Rittwage, WR, Glenpool (OK): The 6-1 and 160-pound took full advantage with Jamie Nance from Blanchard (OK) unable to perform due to a prior commitment.
Trenton Skinner, WR, Shawnee (OK): The 5-10 and 170-pound junior made the most of his reps as Daniel Howard from Millwood (OK) unfortunately could not attend.
Dontez Fagan, DB, Millwood (OK): An Ivy League target, the 5-11 and 170-pound junior was up for the challenge. He did not back down from anything, or anyone.
Tramon Jackson, DB, Midwest City (OK): A Sun Belt Conference target, the 5-11 and 175-pound junior strengthened a growing reputation. Keep a close eye on him
T.J. Spriggs, DB, Westbury Christian (TX): The 5-10 and 185-pound junior transfer from Marshall (OK) has scheduled several visits to schools all over the country.
Nate Bryant, DB, Stigler (OK): The 6-2 and 175-pound junior held his own, while many observers were eager to see the absent Aaron Stokes from East Central (OK).
Jayden Flynn, LB, Watonga (OK): The 5-11 and 190-pound junior proved capable of lining up at running back, yet might have found home on the defensive side.
Sam Harris, LB, Lawton (OK): The 6-foot and 200-pound junior made most on hand forget about the fact that Trae Thompson from Union (OK) ended as a late scratch.
Kelton Dominic, LB, Norman North (OK): No stranger to competition, the 5-11 and 205-pound junior had a knack for doing better when the most was at stake.
Paxton Switzer, OL, Cordell (OK): For his size now, and with what appears to be plenty of room for growth, the 6-4 and 240-pound junior was athletic as they come.
Daniel Atwood, OL, Eufala (OK): Tough and determined, the 6-2 and 290-pound junior seemed to be a man on a mission. He could not be stopped, at times.
Wade Sharp, DL, Newcastle (OK): The 6-4 and 225-pound junior opened eyes. Same goes for Melik Ward from Midwest City (OK) and Williams Lions from Vian (OK).
Trenton Scannell DL, Guthrie (OK): A big body, the 6-3 and 250-pound junior was no pushover and Caleb Carruth from Minco (OK) fell in to the same category.

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.
