QB- Billy Green- 6-2 190 Jr Kings
Green has MVP’d 2 of our first 4 camp/combines and just continues to get better. Colleges continue to inquire about him on a consistent basis as he has a variety of intangibles that stick out..38 Pass Tds and 11 Ints a year ago with 4 rush Tds.. Conference Player of the Year. Just a phenomenal overall kid, with a true love for the game. Projects at the D1 level
RB- Kevin Thompson- 5-8 190 Jr Lakes
Thompson and Dre Milton will carry the load for Lakes this up coming season after the departure of Levonte LittleJohn. Kevin Thompson is small, but runs with power and has legit speed. He can hit holes without letting up on the gas and it will be hard for bigger guys to wrap up on a kid so powerful and compact. Look for Thompson to put up big numbers in Lakes system. He is also an outstanding linebacker.
WR- Sammie Long- 6-4 190 Jr Lakes
The UW Commit did a great job of using his body and breaking off receivers. Dallin Leavitt provided a healthy challenge for him with his physicality as Long was the only one to catch balls on Leavitt. Sammie is a hard working kid with the size to compete at the next level. He is currently ranked Washington’s # 1 receiver ,and should just continue to get better while training with one of the best WR coaches in the country in Mike Bush.
WR- Kamana Adriano 5-11 170 Jr Interlake
Adriano (5-11 170 Jr. WR/DB) is someone that Taylor Barton called at our last event, ” at least a D1aa receiver. Kamana is maybe the best player in either state that we did not know about a few months ago. He is just flat out super talented, but had to play QB last season for his team. The kid is a threat to take it to the house any time he has the ball in his hands. He had 10+ Tds as a sophomore and will be moving back to his WR position this year. Adriano is a legit D1 talent and just a phenomenal kid
OL- Brayden Kearsley – 6-5 300 Aloha, OR
One of the best lineman in the country. He man handled kids sometimes just throwing them. Brayden has some of the top universities in america close to offering including USC, so it will be an interesting off season.The BYU soft commit is keeping his options open and training daily. As we have stated previously Kearsley is the #1 ranked O lineman in the entire NW with 8 major offers. He has that mean streak necessary to compete at the highest level.
DL- Jeremy Ruef- 6-2 230 Bothell
Ruef is legitimately in the running for the overall camp MVP award and just had a phenomenal day. He plays like he is 260 coming off the end hard, and is super quick. He has a non stop motor and projects as more of an OLB at the next level. Plays TE on offense, but his defense stood out a great deal. Jeremy has attended every elite event that we have hosted and just continued to get better. He is definitely an NEI favorite. Bothell is going to be very good.
LB- Mikey Tupou 6-1 230 Inglemoor
This was the toughest call of the day, but we go with a 1st team all league linebacker in Tupou that has outstanding instincts and will never take a play off. The LB’s were very talented and maybe the best overall group in attendance with all things considered. We saw multiple athletes show up that we had not seen before that looked really good (Isaac Lewis-Orting HS, Austin Wheat- Peninsula HS, Zach Nobmann- Kennedy) and top sophomore Nate Lewis of Arlington. Tupou will be considered one of the top linebackers in the state of Washington and we look forward to seeing him do big things in 12′
DB- Dallin Leavitt 5-11 200 Central Catholic, OR
The kids just nasty and plays with a junk yard dog type mentality. Leavitt doesn’t have proto typical DB size, but he’s just better then most everyone. His physicality speaks volumes as he will wear you down mentally and physically if you let him. Very similar to Oregon’s John Boyett with regards to style of play. Fun battles to watch against Washington’s top receiver Long. He lost a few but won the war. Currently a BYU Commit that is also keeping his options open. Hawaii said to be very interested among others.
ATH- Risley Lesko- Mercer Island/Jimbo Davis- Mt Si
Two guys we needed to make note of that have stood out at recent camps/combines are both Washington all league athletes.
Lesko (5-11 175 Jr. Slot) is a kid that we will hear a lot about over the coming year as he will be Mercer Island’s featured athlete with the departure of Jeff Lindquist. Lesko ran a 4.47 40 yard dash at our event, and looked very elusive in the open field. Risley is a kid with some of the “intangibles” needed to have a big 2012 campaign. We think he will be one of the better players in the conference.
Davis (5-11 170 Jr. CB/WR) has been nothing short of outstanding. He absolutely locked it up against some of the top receivers in the country while in Vegas, and proved that he was one of the better DB’s in the state of Washington. He was a two way starter last season and all league DB, but really proved himself over the last month and a half. Jimbo’s future is very bright as he is one of the more surprisingly physical kids you will ever see.
