(Johnny Ragin 6-2 210 Jr. Hback- Wilsonville)
(Kaleb Mcgary 6-7 280 So. OL Battle Ground Offers- Oregon St

(Albert Havilli 6-3 240 Jr. LB Federal Way)
Our final regional combine of the spring has come and gone, but not before one of the best events ever assembled at the Kiggins Bowl in Vancouver. The athletes in attendance were some of the best in the Northwest, and we look forward to seeing most of them at our showcase event June 30th at the University of Washington.
Lets take a look at a position by position break down of who qualified as some of the best athletes in attendance.
Upperclassmen- Sam Stelk Canby Jr.
Underclassmen- Nolan Henry Union Fr.
Connor Neville Beaverton 7th
Grant Watts Centennial So.
Under the Radar- Brandon Shroyer Tualatin So.
Jess Krahn Hockinson Jr.
Lars Blix Wahkiakum Jr.
This was overall a younger group that you can expect big things from in the years to come. Sam Stelk will take his 6-5 frame from Tigard to Canby, where you can expect to see him airing it out a little more in the Cougars system. He was an all league D end last season playing for the Tigers and split time at quarterback.
You can get use to the name Nolan Henry as he looks to be one of the top three QB’s in Washington for the class of 2015, and whoever hasn’t heard of "The Example" Connor Neville might want to take note, as he is one of the top 7th grade QB’s in the country. Just another Barton phenom.
Brandon Shroyer will be another name to get use to, as he will lead the always tough Tualatin Timberwolves for the next two seasons.
Upperclassmen – Johnny Ragin – Wilsonville Jr.
Under the Radar- Kizhan Proctor – Bothell Jr.
Bruce Jones Jr. – Sunset Jr.
One of the top athletes in the entire Northwest without an offer is the multi talented Johnny Ragin (6-2 210 Jr. HBack) . There are a host of schools right on the verge of offering, and once that happens look for a snowball effect.
Kizhan Proctor (5-9 170 Jr.) did big things last season splitting time with Danny Wilson, and look for him to be part of the most talented three back system in Washington with transfer Darrin Laufasa being one of the state’s top players.
Jones Jr. (5-11 175 Jr.) will be a 16 year old senior and the best player on the Sunset roster. He projects as a DB in college, but is talented to lay on either side of the ball.
Upperclassmen- Tanner Shipley- Wilsonville Jr.
Mike Tate- Federal Way Jr.
Under the Radar- Kevin McLean- Southridge Jr.
Lawrence Wilson- Central Catholic Jr.
The group of receivers and slots in attendance was nothing short of filthy. Eight of our top 20 wide outs in the NW were busy running routes on Sunday and they didn’t disappoint. Tanner Shipley (6-2 185 Jr.) of Wilsonville received an Oregon St offer the day after our event, making that his second in the last week with Wyoming being the other.
Shipley called Monday morning and broke the news with NEI, as he has been a loyal NEI/Barton kid all year long. Mike Tate (6-1 175 Jr.) was the other top receiver that grabbed multiple offers this past week as Montana and Portland St both pulled the trigger.
Two of Oregon’s top other receivers also got in the mix as Lawrence Wilson (6-4 205 Jr.) and Kevin McClean (6-4 190 Jr.) are both ranked as two of Oregon’s top 10 wide outs.
Upperclassmen- Dylan Whitaker- West Valley Jr.
Whitaker (6-2 230 Jr.) was a first team all league kid out of the Tri Cities that primarily blocked last season, but looked outstanding catching the ball. Look for him to be one of the better two way players in Washington.
Upperclassmen- Forrest Russell Skyview Jr.
Justin Calo Southridge Jr.
Beau Duronslet Central Catholic Jr.
Underclassmen- Chase Cole – Central Cath So.
AJ Wienke- Centennial So.
Another ridiculously talented group of athletes did a great job catching the ball, as they could be considered receivers or slots. Many know Forrest Russell (5-7 150 Jr.) as he returns as one of WA’s top receivers. Justin Calo (6-1 175 Jr.) is super dangerous in the open field, and teammates Duronslet (6-1 190 Jr.) and Cole (5-6 145 So.) ran the fastest (40 yard-Hand Times) on the day with a 4.53 BD, and 4.54 CC.
AJ Wienke (5-11 165 So.) will be in the running for Mt Hood Conference Player of the Year honors, as he went off last season after following up a freshman year that saw him start on the Varsity squad and score 8 Tds.
Upperclassmen- Dylan Lindsey- Bothell Jr.
Underclassmen- Kaleb Mcgary- Battle Ground/Fife So.
Under the Radar- Taeveon Ashley- Grant Jr.
Hector Ruiz-Radar- Mariner Jr.
Dylan Lindsey is a big time talent that will be part of the three headed monster that is the Bothell Offensive line (Madsen, Ombrellaro). Look for him to have a big season.
Check out the the 6-7 280 sophomore phenom Kaleb Mcgary who was just offered after a remarkable performance that we attended at Oregon St university on Saturday. Mcgary is incredibly coordinated for a kid his size, and we have already spoken to coaches well outside the region that we will be introducing this young talent too.
Ashley will be a three year starter returning for Grant, and looks to be maybe the top offensive lineman in Portland.
Upperclassmen- AJ McCollum – Aloha Jr.
Underclassmen- Willie Eteaki- Skyview So.
Under the Radar- Tastae Cross- Grant Jr.
McCollum (6-1 260 Jr.) had a monster day, and almost more then anybody put himself on the map. He pushed around kids all day long and was relentless. He will team with Brayden Kearsley, Bryson Sullivan, Mike Kluge, and Dre Johnson to form maybe the best line in the Northwest other then Jesuit.
You can also take your hat off to Eteaki (6-2 300 So.)who is just a beast on the inside, and will be a huge addition to an already talented Skyview group. Eteaki has transfered from Southridge where he was a starter his freshman and sophomore seasons, and is considered one of the top lineman in the northwest for the class of 2014.
Uppperclassmen- Albert Havilli- Federal Way Jr.
David Henry- Oakland Jr.
Austin Wilson- Spague Jr.
Underclassmen- Sam Bodine- Canby So.
Gianni Carbone- Skyview So.
Under the Radar- Trevonn Russell- Lindbergh So.
Neil Wagner- Lake Oswego Jr.
Codi Branch- Stayton Jr.
Winston Havilli- Federal Way Jr.
An incredible group of backers were flying around the field all day and host of them deserved recognition. Albert Havilli (6-3 240 Jr.) is considered one of the best linebackers in Washington, and showed outstanding size and closing speed on Sunday.
David Henry (6-0 230 Jr.) has already received a D2 offer from South Dakota School of the Mines, and was noticed by the one and only Chris Fetters of Scout.Com
Austin Wilson (6-2 215 Jr.)brother of Oregon St linebacker Tony Wilson has the same type of ability and should be one of the top defensive players in the Central Valley Conference.
Two sophomores that had as big a day as anyone were Bodine (6-2 205 So.) and Carbone (6-1 205 So.). Both kids have a lot of natural ability, and should be considered two of the top players in their individual state’s. Much more on them to come as the season draws near
Upperclassmen- Reiley Henderson – Skyview Jr.
Bryce Broome- South Kitsap Jr.
Underclassmen Jacob Dennis- Skyview So.
Under the Radar- Kyrell Bishop- Grant Jr.
Alec Powell- Southridge Jr.
Daniel Thompson – Skyview Jr.
The defensive backs were filthy and fun to watch all day long. As we have said time and time again Reiley Henderson (5-10 180)is maybe the top corner in the entire northwest, and is in the process of raising his grades. There are multiple schools that will be happy to go on Henderson as he was voted the MVP of our " Battle in Seattle" 7 on 7 tournament, and also locked up some of the top receivers in the country with us and NEI (South) this past March.
Broome is a kid that has bursted on to scene while attending our regional combines and 7 on 7 events. He is an NEI favorite and someone we think very highly of.
