Future stars shine at camp

April 22, 2013 

THE SCVARSITY All-State Football Combine was this past weekend at Newberry College, where 300 of the top players from Georgia, Alabama, and North Carolina joined the South Carolina players for a day of testing and competition.

Several Midlands-area players had an outstanding camp:

Aaron Peak, DB, Blythewood

The class of 2014 cornerback was a unanimous camp MVP for his performance in skills, where he gave up one completion, and his results in testing, where he turned in a 4.51 40, a 9-8 broad jump, and a 4.01 pro agility shuttle.

Lynard Jamison, WR, Blythewood

Another 2014 Bengal, Jamison captured the wide receiver MVP award. He ran near-perfect patterns, hauling in every pass. A track star, Jamison had a 4.5 40. He has also been position training with QB1.

Lane Ecton, DB, Dutch Fork

A 2015 prospect, Ecton performed well in the skills portion, capturing the defensive back MVP. He’s aggressive and breaks on the ball well. He plays safety for the Silver Foxes; he has the skill set to play cornerback.

Walter Roberson, RB, Dutch Fork

A 2014 player, Roberson was a unanimous selection as the running back MVP. He has explosive speed, was aggressive with the linebacker coverage in one-on-ones, and showed soft hands as a receiver.

Tyrell Goodwin, DL, A.C. Flora

This 2015 strong man was virtually unblockable on bull rushing in the one-on-one’s and captured the defensive lineman MVP. He had 28 reps on the 185-pound bench press.

Other Midlands players who impressed:

Demetrius Lewis, QB, Irmo

Worked out at quarterback and wide receiver and was one of the top players at each position.

Adonus Lee, WR, Westwood

Set the record for the standing broad jump at 10 feet. Was strong in skills and one-on-ones.

Damon Smalls, DB, Dutch Fork

The 2014 player made it difficult to select a top defensive back for the MVP.

R.J. Bacon, WR, Spring Valley

A 2016 player who continues to get strong in his skill set each time out. He turned in a 4.71 40.

Tyrel Gallman, WR, Westwood

The 2015 receiver is undersized but has one of the best skill sets of any receiver in camp.
