The staff from Blue-Grey Football continues to travel around the country for the Jersey Presentation Tour in advance of the All-American Bowl. This past weekend, in fact, several recruits in the Class of 2016 were recognized from the Grand Canyon State.
NFL veteran coach Mark McMillian was in attendance on Friday night as prep circuit teammates Kaleb Pitts and Travis Hamilton from Hamilton (AZ) took center stage. Less than 12 hours later, the one-time pro and production crew took the show on the road.
Pitts will line up for the West vs. East at the All-American Bowl on Dec. 20 at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium. The 6-foot-3 and 175-pound wide receiver has three scholarship offers in place and multiple programs from the Ivy League remain interested in him.
“Pitts is one of the most underrated players in the country,” said McMillian, a coach for the All-American Bowl. “Still, he’s the complete package with his size, speed and strength. He’s also one of the top students in his whole class with a GPA over 4.0.”
Lockhart will be uniform for the North vs. South at the All-American Bowl on Jan. 9 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium. Cornell, Dartmouth and Yale have kept open the lines of communication with the 6-1 and 175-pound quarterback.
“Some might say Lockhart is undersized, but all he does every week is prove the doubters wrong, you have to appreciate that,” McMillian said. “I’ll go to war, to battle, whatever you want to call it, with that young man as quarterback any day of the week.”
In addition to the All-American Bowls featuring the tandem from Arizona, a showdown between the Blue vs. Grey will take place on Jan. 16 at Jacksonville Jaguars’ EverBank Field, the first of its kind in the NFL facility. Stay tuned for additional details.
