With most of the Blue-Grey Football contingency busy finalizing plans for the upcoming All-American Bowl, several staff members recently took a break from the behind-the-scenes work to hit the road to focus on other important matters.
Due to popular demand, similar to year’s past, the occasion was centered around the brand’s nationwide Jersey Presentation Tour. Only this time, it was to recognize some of the country’s premier prospects in the Class of 2017.
NFL veteran Mark McMillian made his rounds and recognized Billy Reagins from Kempner (TX). The 6-1 and 205-pound senior will play for the West vs. East in the All-American Bowl on Dec. 22 at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium.
In addition to the game featuring Reagins and his peers, two other showdowns soon take place: Blue vs. Grey on Jan. 14 at Jacksonville Jaguars’ EverBank Field and Atlantic vs. Pacific on Jan. 21 at Oakland Raiders’ Coliseum.
Reagins first opened up plenty of eyes during the brand’s All-American Combine (Southwest Regional) in April. It was more of the same, meaning he turned more than few heads, at the All-American Combine (Southwest Super) in June.
Accordingly, interest from colleges picked up shortly thereafter, specifically from the Mountain West Conference. His scholarship count is heading toward double digits nowadays as schools from the Big 12 Conference entered the mix.
Given the facts, the future appears bright for Reagins. Playing at the next level is a near certainty. First things first, however, expect to see him in uniform toward the end of next month at the All-American Bowl in the Lone Star State.
