The Toronto Elite Combine Series was loaded with from top to bottom. We had some outstanding performances starting with class of 2019 RB Shaman Blair running a blazing 4.53 electric 40 yard dash time. Below is a list of the players from each position group that took home MVP awards.
Will Hunter QB – Will led a large group of QBs with his performance. Will has that natural confidence that you love to see out of your QB to go along with good arm strength, solid fundamentals and very good touch on the ball. Will has steadily progressed through the years and we feel is a high level QB prospect for the 2018 class. Spending his off season in the IDFFL 7 on 7 has helped him make tremendous strides in his decision making and overall feel for the game which gives him an edge over other 2018 QBs.
Clark Barnes WR – In a loaded WR group Clark’s size, speed and athleticism allowed him to take home the MVP award. At 6’2 and just under 200 lbs Clark uses his size well to shield defenders to make catches and to also bully DBs that try to play physical with him. Running a surprising 4.57 40 yard dash he showed the ability to separate from opposing DBs and be a big play threat. Very bright future ahead for Clark and definitely one of the best WRs we have seen at ECS so far this year.
Juwan Jeffery RB – Another Brampton product out of St. Roch Juwan was the most consistent RB on the day. Looking at Juwan you can see his dedication to the weight room and it really showed during the tesing protion of the combine. He had a blistering 4.2 short shuttle, 9’6 broad jump and a 36’ vertical leap. That lower body explosion and change of direction allowed him to excel in the 1 on portion of the combine. Being a 2019 prospect the sky is truly the limit for Juwan
Lucas Pyz OL – Class of 2018 OL has good size at 6’2 and 270 lbs. Showed that he can play multiple positions across the line but think his main position is Guard at the next level. Has a decent punch and quick enough feet to stay in front of defenders.
Tariq Codrington DL – Good sized DL prospect that was the most consistent out of the DL group. Tariq displayed a variety of moves that allowed him to keep OL on their toes in the 1 on 1 portion of the combine.
Dawson Puk LB – Physical LB prospect that was extremely impressive throughout the combine. Plays downhill and has good lateral agility. Deceptive athleticism that allows him to stay with RB in pass coverage and made more than a few out of nowhere defensive stops.
Al-Ameen Shipeolu DB – Tall, athletic and lengthly DB out of Brampton Al-Ameen was the most impressive DB on the day. Showed the ability to play press and off on gave WR fits all day. The 1 on 1 match ups everyday with teammate and WR MVP Clark Barnes makes Al-Ameen consistently play at a high level. Al-Ameen also impressed in the testing portion with a 4.60 electric 40 yard time to go along with a 31 inch vertical and 9’9 broad jump.
