What to expect from 5 Star SCout Trout All-American ATH Branden ALvarez and #17 Ranked Centennial HS (CA) Football Team in 2018.
Branden Alvarez - A HAll Of Fame Type of Off-Season
Alvarez is the definition of what a hard working athlete is supposed to be. When you watch him operate at the NFL Hall of Fame camp below, you will witness one of the best up and coming slot receivers and athletes in all of the nation. Hailing from Centennial High School in Corona, CA, Alvarez and his friend Jonah Carnell have formed a unique bond as similar athletes in the same class. What makes this interesting is Carnell plays for Norco High School, which is right down the road from Centennial. Alvarez and Carnell traveled to camps nationally and dominated in a way that earned them a spot on my soon to be released College Football Today National 2021 S.T.E.P ratings. When you watch Alvarez operate out of the slot position below, you witness one of the cleanest breaks out of his "speed out" and then a miraculous catch that makes you wonder about how high this athlete's "ceiling" really is. With a remarkable running style as a dual-threat and down-hill running quarterback, Alvarez is the ultimate play-maker at the next level. Centennial has an extremely good football program, and I have seen Alvarez tweet out some big time prospects that are worth mentioning as far as Centennial Football is concerned. Quarterback Carter Freedland will look to find the likes of another Class of 2020 stand-out in 4-star receiver Gary Bryant. Isaiah Young will be locking opponents down as another rising class of 2020 stand-out student-athlete and also operates as a receiver. Leadership out of Class of 2019 recruits Armari Esclovon, DB Jayden Williams and spectacular defensive end Drake Johnson will be pivotal for the young and athletic Huskies to dominate once again in California High School football play. Maxpreps has the Huskies at #17 in all of the land and they are looking to make a major statement, as they are TOO DEEP, as the almighty Clemson Tigers proudly boast! Centennial resembles the Clemson Tigers in a multitude of ways, as they play fast, hard and are contenders nationally year in and year out. The last state title the Centennial Huskies were able to bring home under Coach Logan was 2008 and also won sectional championships in 2012 and 2013. With double-digit wins the last 4 seasons and with the talent returning for the Huskies, Coach Logan is once again set to make a deep run into the California State playoffs. With the way they build and prepare their younger players in this section of California High School Football, I believe there will be many more nationally ranked seasons ahead for Coach Logan, Branden Alvarez and the entire Husky unit. At Scout Trout, this year has been tabbed, "THE YEAR OF THE HUSKY" to pay tribute to some of the best Husky High School Football teams in the nation. Right now of know of two that are looking almost unstoppable in two of the toughest football states in America in the Hirschi Huskies of Whichita Falls, TX and the Centennial Huskies of Corona, CA.

We know what to expect from 5 Star Running Back NIck Silva in 2018 - its been the same since he was 10 years old
NIck Silva is ARGUABLY the best football player in the state of NY
Nick Silva probably has the best body of work over the course of his entire career playing football than any other running back in the nation. He heads into his senior season with 40 total touchdowns for his career and has been shattering opponents hopes and dreams in the state of New York for quite sometime. As seen in the video above, a 10-year-old Nick Silva was a man among boys, and year after year defenses tried to find a way to stop this power back. To their dismay, Silva was able to break through tackle after tackle on his way to being arguably the best football player in the state of New York. Nick Silva is also a stand-out linebacker and could fit very well at a strong safety or outside linebacker role at the next level. Nick Silva was able to break the JV rushing record in 8th grade and has over 5,000 career rushing yards to go with his 40 scores. With Mack Driver looking like he is going to have another phenomenal season and Nick Silva prepared to light up the scoreboard all game long, I see William Floyd High School bringing home the state title if they work together as a unit. I want to wish Scout Trout All-American Nick Silva and the William Floyd 2018 Football squad the best this year as you embark on yet another memorable season in Mastic Beach, NY.
What to Expect out of 5 star Class of 2020 ATH JAred Pickens and the Lebanon Trail - Trail Blazers Football Team in 2018.
Jared Pickens is not a normal athlete for the Lebanon Trail football team, as throughout his career in games and workouts he has played tight end, center, guard, defensive end, linebacker and the best long snapper we have seen nationally. In addition to his diverse skill set, Pickens has been seen pancaking linemen almost twice his size and slinging nearly flawless short and long snaps over the summer at the U of Alabama. Jared also worked out as a tight end at the Asuza Pacific camp and ran very crisp routes, while showing off his great hands. After a great summer, Jared has received interest from Arizona State, Brown, Wingate and Central Methodist as a collegiate football recruit. Pickens bench presses an astonishing 185 lbs 39 times, and his overall strength is a major reason why he is such a force as a center and interior linemen. His long snaps have been averaging (.73) at camps and his fastest I have clocked thus far was a (.68) second snap. His short snaps are also very accurate and clock around (.25-..3) seconds from snap - to the holders hand. These are NFL caliber times and with his athletics, Jared can be seen beaming downfield and making plays after his perfect snaps. Pickens is one of those athletes who works daily at perfecting his craft and can be utilized in a variety of ways at the next level using his remarkable and diverse skill set. Versatility is key at the the next level, and when you can adapt as quickly as Pickens does at nearly every position on the football field, you also welcome a very high football IQ into your program. Jared will grow more inevitably as his work ethic and diligence produce lean, strong and very productive muscles. Jared is excited to have yet another big season at whatever position his team needs him, as he is the ultimate weapon as far as versatility is concerned. Jared and the Lebanon Trail football team look to follow Coach Sadd Jackson's leadership heading into the 2018 football season and mold together as a unit in training camp. If the Lebanon Trail team makes the right choices on and off the field this season, they will find themselves looking back at the 2018 season as one they will remember forever. I want to wish Lebanon Trail High School Football, Coach Sadd Jackson and Scout Trout Elite Top 100 Class of 2020 student-athlete Jared Pickens a great season in Frisco, Texas!

Class of 2020 TExas HS Football's "THE BUS"
There is no bringing down the bus, your going to just have to hop on and enjoy the ride!
CJ Palmer rushed for nearly 100 yards a game in his sophomore season and is built to carry an offense as a work-horse/power running back. At 5'10, 205lbs Palmer can be seen in his film plowing through defenders, while also showing great agility and ball carrier vision. CJ is one of the best power backs I have seen in the Class of 2020. We are excited he has joined the Scout Trout Elite Pipeline program, and I am nominating him as a Scout Trout Class of 2020 All-American. After watching this young man battle through defenses with a struggling 2-8 Red Oaks team, along with his 3 touchdown performance that was combined with 250 yards rushing in one game. I believe the young Red Oaks team has a brilliant upside going forward as does CJ Palmer. We cannot wait to watch him progress this coming season in Red Oaks, Texas, as he also bench presses 300LBS x 10, which explains his remarkable ability to break through tackles. With slight improvements in his speed and agility, CJ will be a big time prospect moving forward into the 2018 and 2019 Texas high school football seasons. I want to wish CJ and the Red Oaks the best of luck as they prepare in August for what appears to be a new beginning for the Red Oaks Hawks football team, as they have one of the best up and coming power backs in the nation.
