This year the combine added the 3-cone drill
(or “L” drill) to the testing portion and Jacksonville
Terry Parker wide receiver Jai Williams ran a 6. 73
at one of the 3-cone stations. Williams is quick-twitch athlete that also showed some nice moves
in the 3-on- 3 events.
Dixie County cornerback Jamal Chapman made
an amazing catch during the 3-on- 3 event to get
a win for the defense. That play and his overall
performance earned him a plaque for “Catch/
Cover” as the top skill player.
Other winners include Creekside High’s Tyler
Trkula, who took home the “Trenchman” award as
the event’s top lineman and Jalen Rivers, an 8th
grade offensive lineman from Oakleaf Jr. High,
who won the “Bright Light” award.
POLK COUNTY CAMP
TENOROC HIGH SCHOOL | MARCH 12
VICTORY CHRISTIAN ATHLETE SEMAJ JAMES
ran a 4. 6 flat in the 40-yard dash and dominated
the competitive skills drills to take home the
Catch & Cover award at the Recruitbomb.com/
FNF Magazine Polk County Training Camp at
Tenoroc High School. James, a rising junior, ran
a 4. 28 in the short shuttle and a 7.0 flat in the
three-cone drill as well.
Dixie County athlete Jamal Chapman, who
already won the Catch & Cover plaque from the
Creekside combine, didn’t pass James for the
award but was given an honorable mention prize.
Springstead high school quarterback Jordan
Wright was teased for looking a little like Tom
Brady but much like the four-time Super Bowl
champion, Wright made believers out of everyone
on the field. Wright won the Golden Arm plaque
as the top quarterback at the event and ran the
fastest three-cone drill of the event ( 6. 78) and
hitting 10 feet in the broad jump.
Lake Wales athlete Tommy Ashwood was
consistent with his testing all day, running a 4. 69
in the 40 and a 4. 54 on the short shuttle. He took
home the “Fastest” plaque.
As for the big guys, there was a strong turnout
of linemen and the competition was tough and
rugged thoroughout. The end battles came down to
Winter Haven 2018 defensive lineman Willie Lane,
Kathleen 2019 defensive lineman Jaaron Jackson,
Lake Gibson rising senior Chandler Pearce and
Fort Lauderdale rising senior Torri Young. Lane was
awarded the Top Trenchman for his efforts. Young,
who came with a group of six from Fort Lauderdale,
won an honorable mention prize as his head coach
Richard Dunbar looked on and gave his approval.
Pearce did not leave the camp empty handed. The
two-time Recruitbomb Camp attendee hit 24 reps
on the 185-lb bench and took the award plaque for
“Strongest.” And one final shout out to 12-year-old
Jacoby Lane who displayed a competitive spirit and
earned the “Bright Light” award.

CREEKSIDE HIGH SCHOOL | FEBRUARY 13
SOME OF NORTH FLORIDA’S BEST AND
brightest high school football players participated
in the first RecruitBomb FNF Magazine Camp
Series event of the season.
St. Augustine quarterback Cole Northrup won the
Golden Arm award and Creekside athlete Deven
Gray became the third player to break 4. 6 at a
RecruitBomb FNF Magazine Camp Series event.
Gray, a Class of 2017 wide receiver at Creekside, ran a hand-timed 4. 59 in the 40-yard dash
on Saturday — the fastest time of the day. Gray’s
time is third fastest in RecruitBomb FNF Magazine
Camp Series history behind Bradenton Manatee
WR Tarique Milton’s 4. 53 and Ocala West Port WR
Valentino Patton’s 4. 56.
Northrup, who appeared in FNF Magazine two
years ago as a “Freshman to Watch”, was the
most accurate quarterback in the event and put
on a throwing exhibition in the 3-on- 3 competition.
His performance earned the “Golden Arm” award.
Charles Strong, a Class of 2018 running back
from P.K. Yonge in Gainesville, won the strongest
award when he did 26 reps on the 185-pound
bench press. Strong, at 6-foot- 1, 215 pounds, is
the definition of a power running back.
