True to form, there were plenty of well-known recruits on hand at the Blue-Grey All-American Combine (Rocky Mountain Super). A handful of of under-the-radar types too, for that matter.
Bottom line here, NFL veteran Seneca Wallace and NFL veteran trainer Reggie Young were pleased overall effort, as each delivered plenty of good feedback following the workout’s completion.
There were many scholarship-worthy prospects in attendance and many of them can now be considered as a possible All-American Bowl candidate for one of the upcoming games later on this year.
Kaiden Box, QB, 2023, Skyline (CO): The 6-foot-4 and 175-pounder left a lasting impression on most of the coaching staff. Same thing goes for Noah Ramirez from Mesa Ridge (CO).
Matt Dean, QB, 2023, Mountain Vista (CO): The 6-5 and 175-pounder did well, along with Curtis Straup from Cottonwood (CO) and Adam Graves from Dakota Ridge (CO).
Jordan Niesent, RB, 2023, Poudre (CO): Regardless of his class distinction, the 5-9 and 175-pounder just might have been one of the best of this entire bunch.
Seth Cromwell, RB, 2022, Columbine (CO): The 5-10 and 210-pounder looked the part and played the part. He could be on the radar of Colorado and Colorado State.
Martell Mora, RB, 2022, Sante Fe (NM): Versatile, the 5-11 and 175-pounder opened up some eyes. Marques Tolefree from Wichita South (KS) was in the same category.
Anthony Harris, WR, 2022, Smoky Hill (CO): With a growing list of interested schools, the future is bright for the 6-5 and 195-pounder. The offers will soon follow, as well.
Dylan McCollough, WR, 2023, Regis Jesuit (CO): The 5-10 and 170-pounder did a little bit of everything. Most of it well, worth mentioning. Keep an eye on him.
Trevin Hull, WR, 2022, Severance (CO): The 5-11 and 165-pounder made the difficult catch appear routine. Jaydin Hedelius from Berthoud (CO) deserved a mention, too.
Trace Williams-Mitchel, OL, 2022, Columbine (OH): A Mountain West Conference target, with Colorado State out in front, the 6-3 and 285-pounder is headed for the next level.
Cade Whish, OL, 2022, Fort Collins (CO): The 6-4 and 275-pounder could find a landing spot somewhere in the Mountain West Conference or Missouri Valley Football Conference.
Brian Mata, OL, 2022, Pueblo South (CO): Big and strong, with somewhat surprising athleticism for his size, the 6-3 and 270-pounder turned more than a few heads.
Dante Capolungo, DB, 2022, Dakota Ridge (CO): Tough and gritty, never one to back down from a challenge, the 5-10 and 173-pounder earned the respect of his peers.
Caden Donovan, DB, 2022, Severance (CO): The 6-1 and 175-pounder made plays all over the field, and when all said and done, he impressed most everyone on hand.
Jackson Gridley, LB, 2022, Cherokee Trail (CO): All signs point to the 6-foot and 201-pounder having a legit shot to secure a scholarship in the Big Sky Conference.
Cade Smith, LB, 2023, Kim (CO): The 6-3 and 207-pounder held his own, along with Nathan Kennedy from Sindey (NE) and Samuel Buckhanan from Gunnison (CO).
Blake McCormick, DL, 2022, Maize South (KS): With sights set on the Missouri Valley Football Conference, South Dakota in particular, the 6-3 and 210-pounder is on his way.
Editor’s Note: When it comes to statistics from the nationwide 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 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 combine participants at the recent All-American Combine will soon be provided with additional details, along with an exclusive membership to the invite-only Red Zone Prospects (click here).

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.
