2014 DL Trey Lealaimatafao from Earl Warren High School in San Antonio, TX was one of the leadership award winners. Trey was the top defensive player and one of the most talented players overall at the camp. The 6'0" 265 lbs lineman impressed all the coaches with his talents on the field and positive attitude off the field. During the dynamic warmups with the Marine Corps to individual drills he was a leader by example. Defensive Line coach Ernest Jones said "the sky is the limit for Trey." During 1 on 1's he couldn't be stopped as he overpowered the offensive lineman and used great pass rushing moves to get to the quarterback. Coach Jones had Trey go through the whole offensive line and no one could stop him. The most impressive thing about him was his explosion off the ball, we haven't see any other lineman got off the ball quicker than Trey. He has all the tools right now to be a very good lineman and over the next 2 years he will only get better. If you haven't heard of Trey Lealaimatafao you need to take a better look as he is going to be a highly recruited prospect. He already has interest from a lot of schools and says USC is his top choice.
2013 DB Preston Brown from Stephenville High School in Stephenville, TX was the other award winner. Preston is no stranger to success at JuniorRank events as he was the MVP of last years Aledo, TX camp and won the fastest man race at the Proving Ground Combine. Preston is one of the fastest athletes we have seen over the years as he displayed that again running a 4.34 40 yard dash at the camp. Preston also showed great coverage skills, good footwork and uses his speed to close on defenders. Recruiting is just starting to heat up for Preston as he is drawing interest from Texas, Texas A&M and other Big 12 schools. More Division 1 schools should really pay attention to Brown, he may not have the best size for DB at 5'10" 175 lbs but with his skills scouts shouldn't even think about that.
