Saturday’s Under Armour / Scout.com Combine not only saw individual’s standout, it also saw several teams have multiple players worth keeping an eye on during the upcoming season. One of those teams was Wayne High School of Huber Heights, Ohio.

Wayne High School head football coach Jay Minton has seen his share of great players go on to future college stardom.  Having been a head coach in two of the countries top football states Florida (Boca Raton High) and now entering his eleventh season in charge of Wayne High School (Ohio) the veteran coach watched many of the top athletes compete during Saturday’s event with amazement.

 

“I’ve been a head coach for a long time and around several events like this.  But I must admit I was blown away by how well organized the people from Scout.com and Under Armour were.  To have over 200 kids in an event like this and watch testing go so smooth was amazing.  All the coaches who worked the combine, the staffs of Scout.com and Under Armour were enthusiastic and made the players feel relaxed in a very competitive setting. I know as a head coach we’re always being asked to have our players attend events like this and you’re always leery if it’s something you should send your kids to. But I would tell any high school coach who has a kid invited to a Scout.com event to try and get their kid there. They won’t deal with a more professional group than what I saw on Saturday in Cincinnati.”

 

Not only did Coach Minton watch the players from across the Midwest tear up the turf at Stargel Stadium.  He also had the pleasure to see six of his own players with several of them enjoying breakout days.

 

With three seniors and three underclassmen looking to make their mark it’s easy to see why Wayne High School will be one of the teams to watch during the 2008 season.

Three seniors headed by running back Erique Geiger showed there is talent in the Class of 09.  Geiger and cornerback Javon Marshall both ran in the 4.5 range and posted nice overall numbers while defensive end Anthony Pyle who’ll be moving to linebacker this fall was not far behind.

 

But while the seniors will have a chance to earn scholarship offers, it was the underclassmen that stole the show as Class of 2011 quarterback Braxton Miller left his mark by posting a 4.47 forty to go with a 35 vertical jump and a 4.30 shuttle.

Miller is a special player with talents beyond his class and will be pushing to be a national recruit when it’s his time in a couple of years.

 

Also leaving their mark were brothers Terry (DL) and Terrence Talbott.  The two Class of 2010 prospects are totally different in size and ability, but both showed well in testing and during one-on-ones.

Terry is a promising defensive line prospect who shows great quickness off the line with a great power rip move. 

 

Brother Terrence is a cover corner who has seen back-to-back weekends where he opened some eyes by running 4.5 in the forty and posting a 4.1 shuttle.  But while testing is one area of the combine Terrence also showed he has the skills to cover the many top receivers in the event.

 

Huber Heights Wayne was one of several schools with more than two taking part in the combine.  We’ll look at a few more in the coming days.
