* These six individuals were invited last weekend to Las Vegas at the BFA Oregon/SW Washington Elite Event. There are now 10 skill kids and 3 lineman that have been chosen. There will be two more rounds of selections, with Sunday 1/25 & Saturday 1/31, being the last two elite event tryouts for the 7 on 7 Pylon Sports national tourney.
– Check the current roster below
Cam McCormick 6-5 230 TE/DE Summit– As of right now the state’s most recruited/ uncommitted athlete for 2016. Cam has picked up offers from Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Boise St, and Montana St over the last two months. He caught 35 passes for 491 yards and 8 scores, while helping the Storm to their best season in school history. McCormick is dominant defensively and will be one of the most high profile recruits to ever come out of Central Oregon.
Sam Noyer 6-4 200 QB Beaverton– One of the NW’s top ranked QB’s who earned all conference honors for the last two seasons. Noyer was named the MVP quarterback at the University of Oregon camp last year and has many of the tools necessary to compete at a high end division 1 school.
Mason Elliott 6-3 180 WR Westview– Maybe the top Sophomore WR in Oregon. His upside is through the roof. He caught 32 passes for 444 yards and 8 TD’s, averaging 13.9 yards per catch in 2014. Elliott will get a chance to prove himself on a national stage in Vegas as the kid is legit.
Samori Toure 6-2 165 WR/CB Westview– Toure earned 1st team all Metro honors in 2014 opposite player of the year Jordan Happle of Jesuit. Samori caught 24 passes for 447 yards and 7 TD’s, averaging almost 20 yards per catch (18.6). He brings versatility to the table, earning all conference accolades defensively as well.
Alex Forsyth 6-4 285 T West Linn– Potentially Oregon’s top ranked O lineman for the 2017 class. Forsyth is the future of a very talented Lions group and plays with a no nonsense demeanor. His physicality, size, and overall athleticism make him an unquestioned D1 kid.
Tony Kraus 6-3 230 DE/ TE Canby– The TRL’s defensive lineman of the year. Kraus comes off the edge as quick as any D end in the state and could end up as an outside linebacker at the next level. He earned 1st team all league honors as a sophomore, in the state’s toughest conference, and will go down as one of the best ever at Canby.

THOUGHTS FROM BFA STAFF:
Despite a rainy day the guys came out and competed hard. Overall it was one of the most talented groups to ever attend a BFA elite event.
QB’s– Noyer was able to spin it in the rain and showed great accuracy.. He was a vocal leader throughout the day and earned the first Vegas QB spot.
Watson showed why he was the two time MWL POY. He is a well built athlete with great arm strength and a quick release. Hutchinson showed surprising arm strength on down field throws, and looks like one of the most underrated QB’s for 2016.
Quinn drove a long way and was one of the most consistent QB’s all day, despite the weather. Coaches were very impressed as the kid looks to be a player.
Harsh showed why he was a 1st team all league kid as a freshman. He is incredibly polished for a young player. Spitznagel will make a push to be the starter at CC, as he was very accurate with a quick release.
Both Schwarm and Chase Warren looked the part as each represent two of the top QB’s within their class.
TE– McCormick is clearly one of the top athletes in the country. He runs great routes and catches the ball naturally. He had maybe the play of the day, by out jumping Jason Rucker on a deep ball.
Kizer is one of the most physically gifted high school athletes that we have ever seen. He could play TE or DE but showed off his route running ability on Saturday.
WR– Trey Davis continues to impress at elite. He is incredibly quick off the line and gets great separation. Toure and Elliott both showed why they were selected as part of the 7 on 7 group.
Benedick shows improvement every time he comes out. He runs great routes and catches the ball naturally. Bryce Bumgardner was a physical receiver who finished plays through contact.
DB’s– Brady Breeze locked people up at the corner spot as well as at his safety position. He had a nice pick during 1 on 1’s
Stickel continues to impress at BFA elite. He had one of the best days of any athlete in attendance, and did not have a ball caught on him during 1 on 1 ‘s.
David Morris and Demetrious Douglas will be two of the top players in Oregon for the 2017 class.
