In another major move that’s sure to create a buzz, Blue-Grey Football recently partnered with Dri-Towel for not only the brand’s upcoming All-American Bowl, but also the All-American Combine series to follow shortly thereafter.
The mastermind behind Dri-Towel is none other than Reggie Young (click on this link for information). Also worth mentioning, the Akron alum was a defensive back during his days on the gridiron back in the early-to-mid 1990’s.
Young has since moved on to bigger and better things as a strength and conditioning coach (click on this link). Of course, that’s business with Dri-Towel allows him to step away from his role as an entrepreneur (click on this link).
As most know, three upcoming Blue-Grey All-American Bowls are right around the corner. Young & Co. will be at each weekend-long event and the plan is to provide Dri-Towel gear to high-profile prospects from the Class of 2016.
The games include East vs. West on Dec. 20 at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, North vs. South on Jan. 9 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium and Blue vs. Grey on Jan. 16 at Jacksonville Jaguars’ EverBank Field.
“I’ve used Dri-Towel in the past, players I worked with at Blue-Grey Football and Camp29, they’ve used the gear too, it’s a great product that’s about to go mainstream. Reggie has my endorsement, my full support,” NFL veteran Mark McMillian said.
This year’s list of who’s who figures to be bigger and better. If that’s possible, given the many well-known names in those aforementioned groups. We are, after all, taking about individuals playing at powerhouse programs at the next level. Still, sky’s the limit.
From the Class of 2015, the prospects included: Karan Higdon (Michigan), Dahu Green (Oklahoma), Jonnas Spivey (Mississippi State), Jozie Milton (TCU), Jalen McCleskey (Oklahoma State), Avery Anderson (Nebraska) and Brett Rypien (Boise State).
In terms of the Class of 2014, the rosters were loaded with talent, notably Pat Mahomes (Texas Tech), Deiondre Porter (Florida), John Batte (LSU), Koa Farmer (Penn State), Kamryn Pettway (Auburn), Vic Enwere (Cal) and Keith Harrington (Washington State).
“Each young man selected by Blue-Grey Football, we’re now a part of the journey to the All-American Bowl and All-American Combine. We want to help individuals achieve dreams at the next level while they continue their education,” Young said
“A partnership with Blue-Grey Football means everything to us. It’s big. Moving forward, we have the opportunity to create a legacy with a first-class organization that cares about the future of these student-athletes. That’s both on, and off, the field.”
