Back once again, for the third time in as many years in fact, there was no surprise when it comes to the talented turnout at the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Rocky Mountain Super).
NFL assistant coach George Martinez was lead instructor, and similar to the recent past, the one-time member of the Raiders and Cardinals passed along his knowledge of the game.
After some careful consideration, here’s a much closer look at the many individuals who left a lasting impression on the coaching staff, as well as the band’s administrators.
Easton Meier, QB, Northwest Christian (AZ): The 6-foot and 185-pound senior opened eyes, so did Kyle Gaster from Mesa Ridge (CO) and Brady Dinkel from St. Francis (KS).
Spencer Peterson, RB, Pine Creek (CO): A target of teams in the Mountain West Conference, the 6-foot and 195-pound senior did nothing to tarnish a growing reputation.
Joshua Norman, WR, Vista Ridge (CO): The 5-10 and 175-pound senior did a everything, most of it well, whether it was over the middle, on the sideline or down the field.
Colby Arlington, OL, Erie (CO): A center, the 6-2 and 235-pound senior made the most of his opportunity, with all eyes on him too, and on one of the biggest stages around.
Jordan Richardson, DB, Moon Valley (AZ): An underclassman on paper, the 6-foot and 160-pound junior often played with the poise of an experienced varsity starter.
Devin Antoine, DB, Vista Ridge (CO): With feelers from schools in the Big Sky Conference, among others, the future appears to be bright for the 5-10 and 190-pound senior.
Hayden Stocking, LB, Wasatch (UT): Idaho State or Weber State could be an ideal fit for the 6-foot and 205-pound senior. It’s only a matter of time before he’s on the radar.
Delonte Dickey, LB, Cherry Creek (CO): The 6-3 and 205-pound senior has been contacted by the likes of Boise State and Northern Arizona. An offer just might be next for him.
Emmanuel Taylor, DL, Vista Ridge (CO): The 5-10 and 235-pound junior did well down in the trenches. Still, he might be better suited at backer, and then, come off the edge.
Editor’s Note: A number of prospects performed extremely well in this particular setting and all of them will be considered for a possible invitation to the brand’s All-American Bowl.
When it comes to stats on participants from the series of All-American Combines, such as the most recent one, we’ve got you covered. For the numbers, look no further (click here).
Worth mentioning, periodically and likely within days, more information about the workout will be added in this space. Feel free to check back on a regular basis for the much-needed insight.
As mentioned above, the goal is participate in the All-American Bowl, four of them, each at NFL stadium and nationally broadcast on ESPN’s family of networks or Impact Football Network.
Games take place at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium and Atlanta Falcons’ Mercedes Benz Stadium, as many venues served as host in the past.
Moving forward, the Blue-Grey Football Selection Committee will consider a number of different factors before making any type of decision on potential invites to the All-American Bowl. Stay tuned.
