Owen Tillis is a dynamic athlete, who dominates on the Defensive line for his Buffalo High School Football team. On the first play of Owen's highlight's, you will see his massive upper body strength, as he completely up ends the blocker to disrupt the would be Field Goal. He shows great football instincts on the 3rd play and is able to get his hands up very quickly, to bat down the would be pass. When at the tight end position, on the next play, you will witness one of the best Tight End screen highlight's this year. Tillis is able to somehow get loose from the first tackler and then proceeds to break four more tackles, as he busts his way downfield for a big gain. I really like Owen at the Defensive End position, as his closing speed to the Quarterback is extremely quick and destructive. Given his 6'3,250LB frame, he fits the mold of DE/OLB, at the next level, that can get instant pressure on a Quarterback. Owen is also very good at holding the edge in the run game, with the ability to detach from blockers and find the ball carriers to make great "sure" tackles. Owen can once again be seen at the Tight End position and it is very impressive. Tillis appears to be a very keen ball player, as he is able to sell blocks and then find himself wide open in the "soft spots" of the defensive scheme. Once Tillis gets his shoulders moving downhill, he is extremely hard to bring down and you can see why there are D1 school's across the South East, heavily interested in this young man's services. He shows great finesse and power moves off the football, while being able to locate the football quickly to make big plays in the backfield for his team. When watching Tillis on Special Teams, you start to realize that this young man is a elite athlete and can used ALL over a football field for your program. With a extremely high motor and toughness about him, I am pleased to announce that this amazing Class of 2018 prospect will be heading to Mobile,Alabama for the Scout Trout All-American Showcase-Game! Thanks for joining Scout Trout and we can't wait to work with you!
Jalen Simmons is a ball of lighting on the football field and is able to create separation instantly, all throughout this All-American highlight. Using great technique and quickness off the line of scrimmage, Jalen burns his defender in whatever destination the route requires. Jalen is able to score on press coverage shown in the first two plays of his film, catching a beautiful fade and a very deceptive quick slant for touchdowns. On the third play, Jalen shows his ability to run after the catch and gets downfield through traffic to fight his way for a score. Jalen can also take the top off a defense, as seen on the next play of his highlights, where he is able to make a great "high pointing" catch, on a slightly under thrown ball. Mr.Simmons is a very keen wide receiver, who knows how to work to the open spots of the field, while his Quarterback is under duress, to create throwing lanes that equate to big plays downfield. I wouldn't qualify Jalen as a "Possession receiver", but he is able to hold onto the ball in heavy traffic, after hauling in dimes from his Quarterback. At 2:30 into Jalen's highlights, you will witness a beautiful "back shoulder" throw and catch, as Jalen once again leaps over a defender to make a beautiful snag for a touchdown. Simmons is excellent on screen plays and gets the ball moving downfield in a hurry, with great vision and acceleration. Jalen shows amazing concentration starting at 3:35 seconds and is able to hold onto the ball, after taking a massive hit. The very next play, the ball appears to be tipped in traffic and Jalen is able to quickly grab the ball out of the air, to make a big play for his team and avoid a costly turnover. He shows very good ability in his run blocking and is able to turn the defenders in the proper direction, per play design. Jalen Simmons has a 3.7 GPA and a great test score and his play on the field has exemplified that of a Scout Trout All-American! I am excited to work with this young outstanding Receiver in Mobile, Alabama, at the 2018 Scout Trout All-American Showcase-Game!
It has been a amazing year for George Bento and he has solidified himself as one of the most dominant at his position in the nation. Being able to line up on the defensive line and manhandle his opponents, is what George is accustom to, but if you know 6A Florida football, it is extremely fast and George is able to track down defenders with his supreme athletic prowess. This being said, George could easily convert to ANY of the Linebacker positions and would make a really good H-Back/Fullback or even a Tight End, with the skill set he possesses. Below's stats are through 7 games and as you can see, George Bento is leading the pack by 14 total tackles! With 27 tackles for a loss and 10 Sacks, these are savage numbers to have in one of the toughest divisions in all of High School Football. No wonder so many Division 1 FBS programs have been courting this young man, who comes from the Polynesian decent, which explains his tremendous work ethic and BRUTE Strength to the core, as Scout Trout has suited up with many Polynesians and loves the tenacity they bring the field.
When evaluating George's end of season highlight's, at the top of this page. You will see how easily George is able to maintain gap control, by creating leverage with his massive arms and great technique, on the very first play of this wonderful highlight. Once George gets his big paws on you, you are going to the ground and going hard! George's stellar tackling technique is a pivotal reason for his success in leading the State in Tackles, in as I stated, one of the top football divisions in the USA. George is a Quarterback's nightmare , because once he bears down on you with his incredible "closing speed", you know it is not going to be easy to escape. George shows great athletics in sacking the Quarterback on play two of his highlight's and is able to make a clean "sweeping" sack of the Quarterback. When you watch how fast George is able to use his hands to quickly swim the offensive linemen on play three, you will start to see the next NCAA dominant pass rushing Defensive End/Hybrid LB. George shows amazing finesse and power moves off of the ball and is not fun for any linemen to block, as he will wear their tails out quickly, with a very intense overall MOTOR. At 1:00 into George's Highlight's, he is able to make a very well timed blocked field goal and shows his value as a instant starter on the special teams side of the football, at the Collegiate level. The ability seen to scrape down the line of scrimmage on the next play is why I believe that George could easily drop back and also play Linebacker, as he is quick as cat! George does not give up on a play, no matter how far downfield the ball gets, you will see this young warrior tracking down ball carriers, until the job is complete. The way George is able to almost launch himself in the air and grab the ball carriers is also very impressive and shows more of the EXPLOSIVENESS that this young man possesses in his lower body. George is seen easily taking on lead blockers and detaching extremely quickly to stop the ball carrier in the backfield. This style of play honestly reminds me of a young JAMES HARRISSON, who is one of the best to ever play in the box for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The hit George makes at 3:08 into this film, results in a fumble and a broken jaw. George might be big, but he exemplifies what I like to call "The Lower Man Winning" and is able to "Kill The Levers", which are your feet, this creates the type of numbers this young athletic phenom has been producing as of late. George is already on most of the nation's radar and now it is going to be fun to see who all ends up offering this phenomenal athlete from Centennial High School in Port St.Lucie, Florida! I want to thank the Bento's for being apart of the Scout Trout Militia and I am excited to meet them in Mobile, at the Scout Trout All-American Showcase-Game.
Dalton Belanger 6'0,197LB Class 2018 WR/ATH - New SmyRNA Beach HS (FL) All American Report
Dalton Belanger comes to us from New Smyma Beach High School and is a dynamic athlete, who can be utilized in many way at the next level. Dalton will be taking a trip to Coastal Carolina this weekend after a stellar season thus far. On the first two plays of Dalton's film, he is able to run two electric skinny posts and is able to make huge plays downfield for his team. Dalton is very fun to watch as a Wildcat Quarterback and appears to float over a defender at :38 seconds, into his wonderful highlight's. Dalton is a very keen and decisive route runner, as seen in his great stop and go Touchdown, two plays later. At 1:10 into Dalton's highlight's, you will see a amazing deep corner pass for a touchdown, which solidifies him as a Athlete for our All-American Showcase. He shows a very strong arm when throwing the ball deep and is able to once again make huge plays for his team. The highlight below is Dalton's last game and boy did he put on a outstanding show! He is able to make a amazing one handed catch on the first play of this epic highlight and is able to throw a perfect reverse pass for a touchdown. He also can be seen running clean and crisp routes, while always fighting for yards after the catch. I am pleased to announce that Dalton will be heading to Mobile, Alabama for the 2018 Scout Trout All-American Showcase-Game!
17 year old Class of 2018 Quarterback Ryan LaAsmar is your prototypical looking Quarterback, but he is not your average 6'4,210LB QB, when orchestrating greatness for his offense, on a consistent basis. While being selected All-State in three sports his Junior year, Ryan possesses insane overall athletics for a young Quarterback, that possesses this kind of size. When comparing to other Quarterbacks, I really feel like I am watching a young Rich Gannon, when I watch how precisely this young man dissects a defense, while his team is only able to dress 19 players! Ryan has extremely quick footwork in his drop-back and has a amazing 6th sense to feel pressure bearing down and is able to side step defenders religiously, as seen on the first play of his mid-season film above. He then somehow pivots and throws back across his body, to drop a dime down the sideline to his receiver. On the very next play, Ryan can be seen throwing on the run very well and once again is able to square his shoulders to his target beautifully, for another "DART" completion (The Dart System will be used in my new QB training system). He has very little "cock back", in his motion and throws the ball from almost a perfect arm angle, when evaluating his overall throwing motion, this young man has a very quick release. As seen at around 1:18, his three step passing game is decisive and the ball comes out fast and on time. Watching him throw the slant two plays later, this young man is already starting to learn how to throw the ball with his body, as he appears to rotate perfectly, being able to use his entire body to complete the pass. The throw at 1:38, will prove why this young man is going to be better then Rich Gannon, when he is throwing receivers to a spot (open), like the great Aaron Rodgers does nearly every down. His release is outstanding on this play and he does not handle the ball long, allowing his play makers to make plays! Ryan show great touch and is able to go over the top of a defense very easily and drops the ball in perfectly, on a corner route for a touchdown. About 2 minutes into Ryan's film, you will get to see his dual-threat ability, as he executes the "Read-Option" to perfection. Ryan is probably the best athlete coming out of the state of West Virginia this year and he is no stranger to success, as his Junior campaign left him with nearly 2,000 yards through the air. I expect a onslaught of recruiting, once word gets out on this young phenom, from a small private Catholic school in West Virginia, Notre Dame High School. Great job so far this season bro and go out with a bang, as it isn't how we start, but how we FINISH!
If I was only looking at what was coming
When you can beat anyone in any aspect of the game of football anywhere, anyplace and anytime. You can then call yourself the Master GOAT. I have seen too many skip the process to become legendary, but claim to be the best player in the world and our destined for NFL greatness. Little did they know the NFL has no clue who they are because they are broke and bring nothing to the table. You really think all of your social media jar gain and saying your going to the NFL, with no plan of action or regiment to get there, you are sadly mistaken. If your work ethic is to go tweet about it, then go fake it and never fucking make it. Excuse my french, but ladies and gentlemen, this is football today. It's a dog eat dog world, that you are going to have to one day be a alpha male just to survive the storms that are brewing for everyone of you ahead. But there is a age old saying that "Pressure bust pipes, but it also forms Diamonds". I apply pressure everyday to myself, let alone all of the outside pressure to perform. I would not have it any other way. I enjoy working under circumstances that seem lost or forgotten, because I was once "LOST AND FORGOTTEN". Tearing my hamstring playing Linebacker, at a CFL workout on the East Coast, I decided to sign to kick that week in the IFL, after being unwanted and unable to walk from the high tear (right under the butt cheek). I bit down very hard on my mouthpiece and won the job in Wichita Falls, Texas and got to travel to my old team the Colorado Crush and get Special Teams player of the week. If you knew the back story behind that game, it was epic beating the WORST coach in all of football, Heron Oneal, once in Colorado and once at home. Struggling through the pain in my kicking leg still, I missed a game against Iowa and was picked up the same day by the Nebraska Danger, who played guess who next? Wichita Falls! I got the pleasure to whoop on them and ended up 3-0 against my former teams in the same year. It was the worst I had ever performed on a field, but the satisfaction was still there and my love for the game. I decided to play Linebacker the next season and had over 20 tackles in one game, a safety and a few pass break-ups. The video at the top of the page, is my career ending with a "Kill Shot", directly to the top of my brain. I then was inserted into the game at LB for the remainder to the 4th quarter. I was told by the Doctor's in Colorado I wouldn't be able to play football for awhile, so I started the PIPELINE PROGRAM. Still hasn't been 3 years of limitations and a lawsuit is being filed for over 15 grand in medical expenses.
Intricate Combine Training
I took the same work ethic and tenacity to create the program, as I did to my training to rehab my body to the point it is today. Knowing there is no short cuts to success, I always came back stronger from injuries and started to even embrace injuries. My brain has been ultimately trained to not see negativity, but only positives, because I have lived everything I preach to the max. I had ex partners that thought they were good enough to play in the NFL still and I could play DB better then them with my eyes closed half the time. Not many practice what they preach in this game, but I know for a fact, that is why Scout Trout is successful, because he can do just that. Do I want to play football again? Yes, but then I think about what I get to do everyday and when on the road with these up and coming stars of the game, I think to myself, I do get to actually PLAY the game and am doing it at the highest level imaginable.
Putting the Fun Back in Football
We go to the NFL Reese's Senior Bowl, not to say we are actually playing in the NFL Reese's Senior Bowl. We go to LEARN HOW TO GET THERE, THROUGH VIGOROUS HARD WORK AND ACHIEVEMENT, WHICH COMES FROM 4 YEARS OF DEDICATION TO YOUR UNIVERSITY/TEAM! We have created a opportunity and path unlike any other and things are starting to come together BIG TIME, here at Scout Trout. Thank you all for the support with this event, I want to put 10,000 fans in the stands for the actual NFL Reese's Senior Bowl and for our game. Is this realistic? With the groups we have and some of food, along with the #1 Football IQ in American (Master GOAT), this is a event that will prove to beneficial in many ways for the betterment of our game as whole, along with our future generations success, on and off the field.
Parker MCphail Class 2018 St.Luke's HS (AL) aka Parks the Rapper - Clutch Report
5 GOAT Kicker Parker McPhail Strikes Again
It will bring tears to your eyes watching them fly away and hit game winners. Below is what started it all. Parker is a athletic SPONGE and he is pretty dag gum good rapper to!
Parker is about to get moved to his proper destination and will be kicking for Team South, as I meet with two All-American kickers this week to kick for Team North. Parker has been borderline Viniteri like, in his vigilant and detailed approach to the kicking game. If he does not hit the ball perfectly, he seeks to know why and usually can find the proper mental response on his own. When I got the pleasure to work with Parker as his Kicking Coach, I realized this young man's potential is LIMITLESS, as he absorbs every fine detail given to him. Parker then will go master these details, whether it be in the recording studio or on the football field. The company Scout Trout was formed in Mobile,Alabama after working with this talented young man and becoming friends with his wonderful father Kent McPhail, who wants only the best for his young man and the others who have joined our journey to whatever mountaintop we choose. Parker and I have been through many battles and we choose to do the opposite of the status quo and attempt to redefine what greatness really means as a Student-Athlete. I have had many school's inquire about Parker and even the storied Harvard University had been calling his school to obtain transcripts. With a 4.0 GPA and a blossoming rap career, kicking is just one of the many wonderful gifts that this young man brings to a University. I want to once again thank Kent Mcphail for allowing me to work with his son and I cannot wait to see you guys in Mobile,Alabama. Everything is earned in our line of work and nothing is given, those who choose to challenge mediocrity and the status quo, will one day find themselves at the top of the mountain. Keep working hard Parker! Scout Trout is a HUGE fan of your music and your clutch leg/powerful leg!
Braxton Williams 5'11,190LB OLB/SS - Tylor Taylor 5'11,240LB ATH - Carmi HS (IL) Scout Trout Evaluation
Braxton Williams has won the Scout Trout Perseverance Award, as he had the mental fortitude to walk away from a situation that was not going to suit his overall needs as a Student-Athlete, at a Juco in Minnesota. The Coach was constantly letting him know he would not play or would rarely see the field as a Freshmen, when he was clearly the best Linebacker of the teams nucleus of LB's. Braxton, now with a 3.0 GPA and 65 ACT Sum score, weighs 190LBS and ran a 4.51 (Same as Ohio Mini Camp) and made one the best one handed snags we have gotten to witness in person. His overall coverage skills are amazing as we have unlocked this young man's full potential as a big play making, tackling machine. Braxton and his family will be making the trip to Mobile,Alabama for my week long events, which will consist of Pro scouting activities, personal training for up and coming pro workouts/combines, training of high school and college athletes and recruiting seminars. Braxton also is resuming training with us after Thanksgiving, to better prepare himself for what is to come next. Several Division one and two programs have shown interest as of late and he has become very popular on Instagram. More can be found on Scout Trout TV and on Scout Trout Radio by clicking the buttons below. Braxton is the epitome of what it takes to succeed at a high level in this game and has one of the best work ethics you can ask for.
Tylor taylor 5'11,240LB ATH
Tylor Taylor is also a very quick learner of the Scout Trout Coaching methods and was able to impress us with his combine numbers and overall athletics, as a big man. Tylor has put on nearly 40 lbs since he last played his Junior season and was able to pull off a 4.5 shuttle at his massive stature and impressed me with his hands. Tylor looked like he could line up at multiple positions on the football field at the Collegiate level. I really like him as a D-Linemen, with his pass rushing ability shown in the films below in the workout with Braxton and his younger brother. Tylor has played Guard in the past and also could line up on offense as a Fullback, with his route running ability and great set of hands. Tylor has heard from a NAIA school already as a Class of 2018 Scout Trout All-American and has made huge strides in obtaining a college football home with his amazing work ethic. For the story of Tylor Taylor, please click the button below. Tylor will also be heading to Mobile for the Scout Trout All American Game with his buddy Braxton Williams.
With great overall football instincts, much like the great Sam Mills, who played with my father for the USFL Stars. Jaylon shows very good agility and is very quick to the football, as a LB and creates turnovers for the Brandon High School defense. On the second play of Jaylon's highlight's, he is able to make a beautiful "punch", at the football and cause a fumble for his team. Jaylon shows very good ability getting off blockers and has great closing speed, once locating the ball carrier. When flipping to Jaylon's full season Highlight's, his first play he is able to make a very athletic interception and shows the ability to convert to a Strong Safety roll. On the next play, Jaylon screams down field on kickoff coverage and makes a bone crushing tackle. On the next two plays of Jaylon's "Full Season" highlight's, which already has 111 views in 2 days. Jaylon instantly breaks into the backfield and sacks the Quarterback, showing his pass rushing ability. When playing the run, Jaylon shows outstanding physicality in the box and a high motor in never giving up on a play, as seen on the final play. These type of high energy players, create big plays for the defense at the College level, with the outstanding Defensive Lines being produced nationally. Jaylon has accepted his invitation to the Scout Trout All-American Showcase-Game and I am excited to see him in Mobile, Alabama, on January 27th-28th!
Walt Weatherington 6'3,250LB DL/OL Class 2018 Brandon HS (FL) All-American Report
On the first play of Walt's highlight's, he is able to easily detach and use great upper body strength to get off offensive lines blocks, while getting to the ball carrier with great speed. On the third play, you will witness a very quick and decisive "swim move", while Walt blows past the blocker and instantly gets to the ball carrier to make a "sure" tackle. Walt shows tenacious ability as a pass rusher and gains very good leverage by staying low and is one of the quickest we have seen on the D-Line or O-Line. At around 1:10 into the film, Walt can be seen "scraping" down the LOS with great hand placement and shows the athletic ability to even stand up and play Linebacker if needed. Walt's extreme quickness off the ball can be seen at 1:45 into this magnificent mid-season highlight, as he gets into the backfield and is able to hawk down the ball carrier from behind, showing a relentless motor. Once again at 3:07 into Walt's highlight, you will see his motor as he fly's on top of the pile, after running clear across the field. Walt is just as tenacious on the other side of the football and is able to turn defenders with ease, while using his supreme quickness to get to the second level and crush the Linebacker's. I am extremely pleased to announce that Walt and his father will be making the trip to Mobile, Alabama for the Scout Trout All-American Showcase/Game.
