MAX EMFINGER YOUTH FOUNDATION AND ALL-AMERICAN BOWL GAME CLASSIC BIOGRAPHIES WEST OFFENSIVE TEAM QB/ATH, #11 Gilbert Moye – (6-2, 205, 4.5) of Dibold, TX – (MISSOURI VERBAL) – Moye is an incredible athlete who got caught in the Hurricane Rita. He was playing for Jasper, but during Rita, his house blew away and he transferred to Dibold. Te Texas ULL ruled that he could not play for Dibold until he had been in school for one year, so he missed the first few games of his senior season. He still was able to throw for 601-yards and run for 626-yards. He is also an outstanding defensive back and he could play either position for the Missouri Tigers. QB, #12 Ian Starnes – (6-4, 208, 4.56) – of Springfield Glendale, MO - Ian Starnes is a very athletic quarterback who can run or throw with equal effectiveness. He could become one of the hottest quarterbacks in the country before the end of his senior season. He passed for over 1,000 yards and ran for over 700 yards as a junior. With the change in offenses, Starnes will be able to put-up some very impressive passing yardage and when he does, the offers will start flowing. Last year, his team ran mostly option plays, but this year they have put in a passing offense and Starnes will become the biggest benefactor of that offense change. He ran an outstanding 4.25 in the pro-agility shuttle at the College Station Nike Combine and with a legit 4.6 in the forty, Starnes is one of the quickest, passing quarterbacks in the country. As a senior, Starnes recorded over 1,700 yards passing and over 1,100 yards rushing, while accounting for over 30 touchdowns. He will play wide receiver in college. (STARNES SIGNED WITH MISSOURI STATE UNIVERSITY) QB, #13 Cody Kirby – (6-0, 200, 4.6) of Rogers, AR – Earlier in the summer, Rogers played in the Music City National 7on7 Tournament at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. In that National Tournament, Kirby passed for 2,600 yards and he threw 49 touchdowns in leading his team to the Championship Game before they got beat by one point, to Duncan Byrnes and their Super Quarterback Willy Korn. In that Tournament, he completed an uncanny 78% of his passes and 49 of his completions resulted in a touchdown. He was chosen as the MVP of the Music City Tournament and he beat-out Korn for that Honor. Kirby also won the Top Gun Quarterback Challenge Award as he led Rogers to the Sonic 7on7 Championship. Since he is only about six feet tall, a lot of college coaches have not really taken a really good look at this Joe Montana type of quarterback. His arm strength is as good as any quarterback that I have seen this season and I have seen every single major quarterback in the country play. At the Arlington 7on7, Kirby ran a 4.62 in the forty and he did a 4.31 in the pro-agility shuttle, so his athletic ability is impressive. As a senior, Kirby led his Rogers team to the 7A State Championship game. He was selected as the 7A Player of the Year by the Arkansas Democrat as he completed 66% of his 350 passes for 4,200-yards and 52 total touchdowns. (STARNES SIGNED WITH MISSOURI STATE UNIVERSITY) QB/ATH, #14 Earnest Eastland – (6-4, 215, 4.48) of Houston Booker T. Washington, TX – Eastland was very impressive at The Max Emfinger Youth Foundation Super Combine in Houston, Texas. He also weighed 224-pounds and ran a 4.57 in the forty, just before the drills. He also did 25 reps of 185 on the bench press and did a 4.37 and a 4.38 in the pro-agility shuttle. He ran a 4.48 at another camp. This great athlete might not play quarterback in college, but he could play tight end, wide receiver, free safety, or strong safety. QB/ATH, #15 Sam Proctor – (6-1, 200, 4.4) of Pearland, TX – Proctor is another sensational athlete who played quarterback for his high school team and led them to the Texas 5A State Semi-Finals game. In the quarter-finals game, he threw a touchdown pass in the final minutes to win the game and upset Katy. As a junior, he played for Pasadena Dobie and he was also spectacular at quarterback as he rushed for 799-yards and 15 touchdowns and passed for another 807-yards and seven scores. He recorded a 36 inch vertical jump at one of the Summer Camps. Proctor may or may not get a chance to play quarterback in the All- American Bowl Game, but he could play one of the positions in the secondary. He has offers from LSU, Oklahoma, Kansas, Oklahoma State, and Houston. I think that he will probably play cornerback at the next level. (PROCTOR SIGNED WITH OKLAHOMA) RB, #1 Phillip “Speedy” Livas – (5-8, 170, 4.23) of Houma South Terrebonne, LA – Speedy is one of the most electrifying little backs that I have ever seen play. As a mere sophomore, he rushed for 1,048-yards and scored 15 touchdowns while earning MVP of his District. As a junior, he scored 18 touchdowns while averaging an incredible 46.5 yards per kick return. After returning six returns for a touchdown, he was selected to the All-State Team as a return man. As a senior, he rushed for 1,936-yards, scored 25 touchdowns, and averaged 9.2 yards per carry. Opponent refused to kick to him, but he had three returns for 172-yards and one touchdown, averaging 57.3 yards per return. He was named District MVP for the third straight year. Speedy ran the fastest forty at the LSU Nike Camp when he recorded a 4.3 on a wet and slow grass surface. He was selected to the 5A All-State Team as a senior. (LIVAS SIGNED WITH LOUISIANA TECH) RB, #5 Andre Agers – (5-10, 190, 4.42) of Dallas Bishop Lynch, TX – Angers is a running back jewel that has been hidden in a private school in Dallas. As a senior, he rushed for 2,382-yards and scored 35 touchdowns while averaging 7.9 yards per carry. Angers had a sensational night on one Friday as a senior as he rushed for 366 yards and scored five touchdowns as his team won 42- 21 in his District Championship against Trinity Christian. His 4,082 career yards and 54 career rushing touchdowns and five receiving touchdowns were outstanding. (AGERS SIGNED WITH TULANE UNIVERSITY) RB, #19 Quentin Castille – (6-2, 220, 4.5) of La Porte, TX – (NEBRASKA VERBAL) - Castille was one of the most impressive physical specimens at the University of Houston NIKE Combine in May. He also did 19 reps on the 185 pound bench press and ran a 4.56 in the forty yard dash. He rushed for 1,203 yards as a junior and scored 15 touchdowns. He plays tailback in the I-Formation, but most every school was recruiting him as a fullback or an H-Back until his sensational senior year when he rushed for 1,718-yards and scored 20 touchdowns as a tailback. He averaged 8.0 yards per carry as a senior, but his career stats are even better with an excellent 8.5 yards per carry. I think that he can play tailback in an I- Formation at the next level, but he could also play on defense at either linebacker or strong safety. He has a 325 bench press to his credit and he also has a 36 inch vertical jump. I was so very much impressed with Castille as a player and as a person, I offered him a chance to play in my All-American Bowl Game and he accepted the invitation. His father lives in Atlanta and he visited Georgia Tech in the early spring. He had offers from Georgia Tech, Indiana, Nebraska, Iowa State, Central Florida, UTEP, and Northwestern before he committed to Nebraska. RB, #20 Bradley Stephens – (5-11, 196, 4.41) of McAllen Memorial, TX – (TEXAS A&M VERBAL) – Stephens is a rare four-year phenomenon in the State of Texas. His junior and senior highlight film is simply “mind-boggling” to watch. He finished his senior season with 2,546-yards rushing and another 256- yards receiving, 112-yards on kickoffs, and 44-yards on punt returns, giving him 2,958 all-purpose yards and a nice 10.4 yards per touch. His career stats were just as impressive as he finished with 7,803 rushing yards, 1,196 receiving yards, and 1,060 return yards. He had a 10.1 yard career rushing average and he recorded 10,159 yards of total all-purpose yards. Stephens was voted as the High School Heisman in a two-week poll that was conducted on our website and he finished with over 13,000 votes from voters from all over the United States. Stephens is also one of five Finalists for the prestigious Watkins Award given to the Top African American Scholar Athlete in the Country. RB, #21 Daniel Palmer – (5-9.5, 200, 4.3) of College Station A&M Consolidated, TX – I think that Palmer may be one of the most under- rated football player in the talent-rich State of Texas. Here is a kid who is a great physical specimen and he has great speed to go with it. At the Max Emfinger Youth Foundation Combine in Houston, Texas, Palmer ran a 4.44 in the forty; did a 4.02 in the pro-agility shuttle; and did an amazing 27 reps on the 185 pound bench press. He also has a personal best of 15 reps of 225-pounds on the bench press. In the drills, he was outstanding in catching the football coming out of the backfield. He has never played cornerback, but he did work out at that position and although he really did not know what he was doing, he was still able to use his athletic ability to impress us. He has been overshadowed by a few other Texas running backs, but on his highlight film, he is pretty impressive. He has an offer from UTEP, but we believe that he can play for most teams in the country at the next level. He was so impressive at the Houston Combine, that he was invited to play in the 2007 All- American Bowl Game Classic. (PALMER SIGNED WITH TEXAS EL-PASO) RB, #22 Daniel Borne – (5-10, 200, 4.4) of New Orleans Shaw, LA – Borne is one of the surprise players of the South. New Orleans Shaw did not even play a full season in 2005, because of Hurricane Katrina, but in 2006, behind the workhorse running of Borne, they finished in the Louisiana 4A State Championship Game. Before the State Championship Game in the Superdome, Borne had rushed for 1,880-yards and scored 29 touchdowns. He finished with 1,926 yards rushing and another 312-yards receiving to give him 2,238-All-Purpose yards. He can make people miss or he can run-over defenders. On film, this kid is a real phenomenon. Since their season was cut short in 2005. he has been flying under the recruiting radar for most of the 2006 season. RB, #25 Housen Maxwell – (5-9, 165, 4.42) of Arlington Lamar, TX – Maxwell came to the 7on7 National Championship with his powerhouse Arlington Lamar team. Playing on both sides of the football, Maxwell made huge plays for his team all through the tournament and he was probably his team’s Most Valuable Player in that Tournament. He also ran a 4.27 and a 4.37 in the pro-agility shuttle and did 34-inch vertical jump. Maxwell is a real playmaker on offense. He will play running back as a senior, but he would make an outstanding inside receiver in college. We believe that he would also make a great cornerback at the next level. FB, #41 Nyoki Mokeba – (6-0, 215, 4.6) of Baton Rouge Broadmoor, LA – Mokeba was a great two-way player for his high school team. He is flying under the recruiting radar, but he can play at the next level. As a senior, he rushed for 640 yards as a fullback and recorded solo 48 tackles and 23 assists on defense. He has recorded 24 reps of 185 on the bench press and he has a personal best of 350 pounds on the bench press. He has scored a 20 on his ACT Test. WR, #3 Jeremy Little – (6-1, 185, 4.42) of Shreveport Evangel, LA – Little is an outstanding wide receiver for once powerhouse Evangel team. In fact, he might be as good a wide receiver as the Eagles have ever had. In the Louisiana 5A State Championship game in 2004, he recovered a fumble in the last few minutes of the game to save a State Championship against a very powerful West Monroe team. He was an All-District receiver in 2004 and again in 2005, as the Eagles won the Louisiana 1A State Championship. Then as a senior in 2006, he helped Evangel win their third straight State Championship and he was selected MVP of the 2006 1A State Championship Game after grabbing 8 passes for 156-yards and two scores. He has been flying under the recruiting radar for most of the season, but his recruiting stock is beginning to sky-rocket after the State Championship Game. WR, #4 Crosby Tuck – (6-1, 185, 4.43) of Shiloh Christian, AR – (ARKANSAS VERBAL) (INJURED FOR GAME) – Tuck played on a powerhouse team in Arkansas and he was their best player. As a senior, he grabbed 78 balls for 1,640-yards and 21 touchdowns and their #1 quarterback missed eight games with an injury. He finished his senior season with 4,344 career yards receiving which is second in history and he finished with 55 touchdowns which is third in Arkansas history. His team out-scored their opponents by a 617-158 margin. He broke a rib in the State Championship game and he was not sure if he could play in the All-American Bowl Game. WR, #9 Ben Bruneau – (6-1, 200, 4.25) of Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, CA – Bruneau is a phenomenon that has gotten lost in a Coast-to-Coast transfer. He played at Miami Pace as a freshman and sophomore, but he had to move to California to live with his sister when his mom got sick. The California CIF ruled that he transferred for athletic reasons and made him sit out of football for his entire junior season. He has recorded “mind-boggling” times of 4.25 in the forty and a 4.12 clocking in the pro-agility shuttle. He can bench press 300 pounds, squat 525 pounds, and hang clean 300 pounds. He may be the fastest and strongest wide receiver on the planet. After three games as a senior, he was averaging 43.3 yards on 12 kick returns. WR, # 21 Roger Holland – (5-11, 180, 4.38) of Houston Cypress-Falls, TX – (TEXAS A&M VERBAL) - (INJURED FOR GAME) - Holland is a pretty sensational young wide receiver who was very impressive on his highlight film as he made huge catch after catch. His Cy-Falls team went three games into the 5A playoffs as a junior and Holland was one of the reasons why. He grabbed 21 balls for 440-yards and recorded six touchdowns and had a 20.9-yards per catch average. At the Houston Nike Camp, Holland ran a sensational 4.1 in the pro-agility shuttle and he also recorded a 36.9 in the vertical jump. He participated in the Oklahoma State mini camp at Pearland High School in the summer and he posted a blistering 4.42 in the forty timed by Oklahoma State coaches in football cleats on the new high synthetic rubber turf. He go injured as a senior and he missed five games, but he came back in the 5A State Championship Game and blocked a punt and ran it 25- yards for a touchdown. He will rest his knee and not play in our game and we wish him the best as he has already committed to play for Texas A&M University. WR, #86 Garret Williams – (6-1, 185, 4.39) of Houston Cypress-Falls, TX – Williams has had some pretty impressive times at Combines and Camps. His 4.39 in the forty at the Texas A&M Nike Camp was one of the fastest times of the day at that Camp and his 4.1 at the pro-agility shuttle was also impressive. He has recorded numerous 4.3’s for his personal trainer and he also has recorded a 40-inch vertical jump. (WILLIAMS SIGNED WITH STEPHEN F. AUSTIN) TE, #10 Mikhail Marinovich – (6-6, 225, 4.5) of San Juan Capistrano Serra Catholic, CA – There may not be a better phenomenon in this All-American Bowl Game than Marinovich. He is 6-6 and runs a 4.5 in the forty, but amazing strength can not be overlooked. He bench presses over 400 pounds and has done some incredible reps on the 185 pound bench press and also on the 225 pound bench press. TE, #40 Logan Brock – (6-3.5, 230, 4.58) of Copperas Cove, TX – Brock is a phenomenal athlete. He originally was a passing quarterback, but he moved to tight end as a junior and recorded 88 pancake blocks while making the 13-5A All-District Team. Ss a senior, he recorded 125 pancake blocks for a powerhouse 4A Team that went deep into the Playoffs. He also grabbed 35 catches for 516-yards and six touchdowns. At a part-time defensive end, he also recorded 35 tackles, caused a fumble, and had numerous quarterback pressures. I was at the Brownwood Homecoming and the Lions played Copperas Cove on Friday night in a District game. The most impressive looking football player in that game was Brock and I immediately invited him to play in our All-American Bowl Game. (BROCK SIGNED WITH TCU) TE, #45 David “D.J.” Williams – (6-4, 247, 4.67) of Little Rock Central Arkansas Christian, AR – (ARKANSAS VERBAL) - (INJURED FOR GAME) - Williams is a pass-catching phenomenon. As a junior, he grabbed 51 balls and 11 of those catches went for touchdowns. This was on a team that played for the State Championship for the second straight year. In two summer combines, Williams was one of the most outstanding players at both combines. At the FCA Combine, he was outstanding as he ran a 4.67 and then at the Arkansas Seniors Combine, he was the top player there as he wowed everyone with his acrobatic catches. Williams is also a great defense end, but he is so outstanding on offense, he will probably never play defense at the next level. He had offers from over 20 schools before picking Arkansas. TE, #90 Grant Freeman – (6-7, 255, 4.9) of Paris, AR – (ARKANSAS VERBAL) – Freeman is an exceptional talented blocking tight end who could either play that position or move to a coveted left offensive tackle for the Razorbacks. In high school, he also played defensive end and was impressive at that position also. He carries an outstanding 3.86 GPA and he has scored a 22 on his ACT Test. OC, #53 Steven Kenney – (6-1, 295, 5.3) of Pearland, TX – Kenney is a very good center prospect that helped lead his team into the playoffs. Sam Proctor was his quarterback and he took most of his snaps from under center, but Kenney is a very accomplished shotgun center snapper. I believe that this kid can play for a lot of teams in the country. He carries a fine 4.1 GPA in College Prep Courses and he has already scored a 1180 on his SAT and a 23 on his ACT Test. His career blocking reads 331 knockdown blocks and105 pancake blocks. He could become a real star in this All-American Bowl Game. (KENNEY SIGNED WITH TEXAS STATE) OG, #60 Robert Hill – (6-2, 255, 4.63) of Southlake Carroll, TX – Hill is an outstanding offensive lineman prospect for one of the top football programs in the entire country. He was the starting left tackle for Southlake Carroll in 2005 and 2006 as they went undefeated with 16-0 records as they were the Texas 5A Division II State Champions. In 2005, he was the only junior on that starting offensive line. On film, he is a very athletic offensive tackle who is always looking downfield for the second and third block. I really like this kid and although he is under-sized for offensive tackle, I suggested to him to start learning to play center and he thought that was a great idea. In fact, I was so impressed with his work ethic and potential, I invited him to play in my 2007 All-American Bowl Game and as a center or guard. This athletic offensive lineman also has a very impressive 4.33 in the pro agility shuttle. I think that he will start getting a lot of offers and that he will make a very good college lineman for some lucky team who gets him. (HILL SIGNED WITH UTAH STATE) OC, #61 Seth Oxner – (6-4, 295, 5.19) of Monticello, AR – (ARKANSAS VERBAL) – I watched film on Oxner in the spring and I thought that he was one of the top offensive linemen in the country. As a center snapper, he is pretty smooth. As a senior, he was selected as All-Conference and 4A All-State. He was captain of his team and he was a Scholar Athlete. He has started every game at center since his sophomore season and he has been the team leader for one of those seasons. In our Poll on my website, he received the most votes for the Earl Leggett Award as the Outstanding Offensive Lineman in the country. He committed to the Arkansas Razorbacks early in the spring and has never wavered in his decision. OG, #65 Manu Tonga – (6-3, 330, 5.0) of Honolulu Farrington, HI – Tonga is a real beast of an offensive lineman. He simply manhandles opposing defensive linemen. He has been lost in the recruiting race, but I believe that he will be a real star in our All-American Bowl Game. OT, #70 Aaron Allen – (6-8, 310, 5.3) – of Hugoton, KS –I looked at film on Allen, back in March and thought he was an exceptional offensive lineman. Along with 120 others, we invited him to play in our 2007 All-American Bowl Game, but he never responded. Then, in late July, he responded by asking if there was still a spot left for him if he wanted to play. We told him that any player that was 6-8 and weighed 320 pounds would have a spot available for him. With only one offer from Kansas State, Allen was a little intimidated by the invitation back in March, but having just come from an Oklahoma Sooner Football Camp where is was a dominating force, he really felt good about himself and wanted to prove it in the All-American Bowl Game. This kid has it all. Tremendous size, fabulous footwork, great intensity, and great strength are his four main assets. In his first game of his senior season, he recorded six pancake blocks in the first six plays. OT, #71 Jace Prescott – (6-6, 380, 5.4) of Haughton, LA – There is absolutely no way to block Prescott on defense. He plays both ways in high school and he could play on either side of the football in our All-American Bowl Game. He probably will play offense at the next level, but he could help stop most offensive teams if they try to run in the middle. (PRESCOTT SIGNED WITH NORTHWESTERN STATE) OT, #72 Grant Cook – (6-6, 305, 5.1) of Jonesboro, AR – (ARKANSAS VERBAL) – Cook is an outstanding offensive tackle that has some tremendous quickness for a big guy. He has excellent grades in the classroom as he carries a 3.75 GPA and he has also scored an 18 on his ACT Test. He is also a very strong offensive lineman as he has a personal best of 375 on the bench press and a 525 on the squat. OT, #73 Lee Ziemba – (6-7, 307, 5.17) of Rogers, AR – Ziemba is one of the top offensive tackles in the country. He has everything that a college coach is looking for in an offensive left tackle. He is an outstanding pass blocker and he plays in a great passing offense. As a senior, he recorded 33 Champion Blocks, 19 Deuce Blocks, Pancake Blocks, and 43 Knockdown Blocks. This 143 Total Blocks on a team that went to the 7A State Championship Game. He is also an outstanding student and he is fully qualified to play as a true freshman. With over 40 offers, including offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Michigan, Ohio State, Florida, Florida State, Oklahoma State, Mississippi State, Texas Tech, Kansas State, Nebraska, Southern California, Michigan, Tennessee, Notre Dame, and LSU. Ziemba was selected as the Arkansas Gatorade Player of the Year. (ZIEMBA SIGNED WITH AUBURN UNIVERSITY) OT, #74 Jack Cornell – (6-7, 300, 5.0) of Quincy Notre Dame, IL – (ILLINOIS VERBAL) – Cornell is a real blocking machine. In the highlight film that I saw, he had two knockdown or pancake blocks, but the thing that I was most impressed was his will to get downfield for the second and third block. As a junior and again as a senior, Cornell was selected on every All-State team in Illinois. He was committed to Michigan State early, but he has recently changed his verbal to play for the In-State University of Illinois. OT, #77 Miles Stroter – (6-6, 315, 5.2) of Chicago King, IL – Stroter is one of the most dominating offensive lineman that I saw on film in the spring. His massive size, long arms, and long wing span makes him an unbelievable specimen on the football field. He also played on both sides of the football and was completely dominant on both sides. As an offensive tackle, he recorded 63 pancake blocks and 27 other key blocks that helped a running back or quarterback too make a “big-play” in a crucial time in the game. He also had 51 solo tackles as a senior. He was selected to the USA Today All-American Second Team as a senior he was also selected to the Chicago Times All-Area Team as well as the All-State Team. (STROTER SIGNED WITH SOUTHEAST MISSOURI STATE) OT, #78 Marcel “Big Cels” Jones – (6-8, 320, 5.2) of Phoenix Trevor Browne, AZ – (NEBRASKA VERBAL) – On his highlight film, Jones is as good as there is in his blocking assignments. His wing span is incredible and he uses his long arms to completely dominate opposing defensive linemen. This is an outstanding year for talent in the State of Arizona and “Big Cels” is one of the best in that group. He received an early offer from Arizona State, but Nebraska found out about him, had him and his mom, Tracy Torry, up to Lincoln and got him committed. He also is averaging around 12 points per game on the hardwoods. He is a future NFL player and the Cornhuskers are excited about getting him.
