Andre Folkes_Freedom

E7 went as expected today. Plenty of kids showed up to train, compete and get BCP recruiting exposure. Well, it worked out in a big way for a number of players and event better for the players listed below. 1 MVP was award to one player in each position group. Below is why each participant was named 2013 BCP E7 Summer Training Camp MVP.

Chris Oladukun_Alonso

WR – Adam Harris, Largo 2014
Close, but Harris pulled out ahead of the pack late with some great route running and receptions during half-field drill. Harris topped the scale at 5-10/189 lbs and built like a truck. Great frame and feet to go along. During the day he showed improvement in every drill, excepted coaching and displayed great athleticism. During 1 on 1s he was hard to cover. Giving the defensive backs problems and proving to be a difficult matchup.

QB – Chris Oladokun, Alonso 2016
“I picked Chris because of his tremendous upside and leadership. There were a number of great QBs out there today, but Chris proved to be the most consistent,” E7 QB Coach. He had a great command of all of his passes, showed tremendous athleticism, was extremely fluid in his footwork and technique, accepted coaching with an open mind, and was a leader with all players around him. Chris obviously has a very bright future, and I’m sure we will all be knowing who he is here very shortly.

RB – Andre Folkes, Freedom 2014
“Yes sir, no sir” kid. Very coachable! Anything asked of him, he did it 100%. If he did it incorrectly, the RB coach gave him quick coaching key and he picked it up on the spot. Precise route runner with good hands. He is a big time play maker in the open field. Capable of making line backers miss in tight spaces. Great kid, looking forward to see what he can do in his upcoming season.

OL – Trey Curry, Bloomingdale 2014
He showed great leadership throughout the day. He lead every drill and really improved throughout the day. He was very coachable and asked a lot of questions in all of the drills. Trey pretty much dominated in the 1 on 1s only losing twice. He brought everyone together and helped them pull through a rough day of practice. He was the first one to step up to perform in the gauntlet and did well. Trey has great potential and can be a great O-Lineman if he continues to work hard and to work on his techniques.

Jaye Minor_Wiregrass Ranch

DL – Quinton Foster, Zephyrhills 2015
Just wow! Where do I start. Lets try this: Coachable, hungry, attentive, strong, quick first step and eager to get better. Was a work horse all day, punishing offensive linemen and even standing out at as an offensive lineman. Improved as the day went on and competed each and every rep in both 1 on 1 sessions.

LB – Jaye Minor, Wiregrass 2015
This young man progressively improved from the first until the last drill all day. He took coaching and constructive criticism positively and applied the information on his very next repetition. Jay is a tall, rangy kid. Had good body control and balance, showed excellent hips and feet in pass coverage and open field tackling. And he competed all day as evident by his 19.89 time in the obstacle course (2nd place).

DB – Nate Ferguson, Freedom 2015
“I choose this young man because in every drill all day long, he exhibited the skill, speed, confidence, tenacity and arrogance that I’m looking for in a defensive back,” E7 DB Coach. Great hips, quick feet, and explosiveness would be best suited to describe his day during the footwork, lateral movement and agility portions of the day. In 1 on 1 he was simply lights out. He showed what tools he had in his tool box by mixing a variety of press moves to befuddle wide receivers at the line of scrimmage. In half-line drills, he exhibited the smarts to make above average pattern reads and came away with a nice interception in Cover 2. Simply put, this prospect exhibited the tools to be the next big time DB in Hillsborough County…period!
