Football University kicked off its 2016 camp season in San Antonio from April 8-10. Over 250 student-athletes showcased their skills and experienced three days of NFL-level technique training under the teaching of FBU’s faculty of NFL coaches.
2018 athlete Jordan Moore from Yoakum High School (TX) stood out the most out of everyone at camp. Like his twin brother Joshua, Moore is a true baller. He played receiver at the camp and showed why he has a high star rating. There isn’t anything this kid can’t do.
One of the top players at the camp was 2017 quarterback Mason Winter from Garden City High School (KS). Sporting a backwards red baseball cap, he stood out as the top quarterback at camp, showcasing his strong arm and precise drops. His form was exactly the same every time. Another 2017 quarterback, Vincent James of Earl Warren High School (San Antonio, TX), was much improved during the camp. James is a very good athlete at the quarterback position, with a strong his arm able to make all of the throws. From the younger group of field generals, 2020 quarterback, Garden City High School’s Baron Winter was the camp’s Youth Leadership Award Winner. Winter, currently an 8th grader, throws a very nice and hard ball for his age. His older brother, Mason, is the starting quarterback on the varsity team.
2019 running back Kannon Hunter, from Lytle High School (TX), is a solid all-purpose back who can make catches out of the backfield. A 2020 running back from McAllen Memorial High School (TX), Campbell Speights was the Camp Youth MVP. This kid is a great player and there isn’t much that he can’t do. He stood out among the other middle school athletes with his routes out of the backfield possesses very good skills as a runner. His older brother, Trevor, is also a running back and signed with Stanford University.
Wide receivers were very impressive in San Antonio and have promising futures. 2017 wide receiver, Karen Wagner High School’s (San Antonio, TX) Antwoine Ware has some serious ups. No matter where the ball was thrown, whether high, low, or totally not at him, he went for it every time and usually came down with it. 2017 wide receiver Mychal Cooper of William Howard Taft High School (San Antonio, TX) is a massive target, standing at nearly 6’5”. He is good as a deep threat and does a good job with his release and in handling press coverage. Another 2018, wide receiver Deondre Adams from Hallettsville High School (TX) is a very solid receiver, showcasing crisp routes and catching the ball with his hands precisely.
Steele High School (Cibolo, TX) 2019 defensive back Xavier Player showed out and earned an invite to The National Combine at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. He was the #1 defensive back at the camp. Some of the best receivers lined up against Player, and rep after rep he held his own. 2017 defensive back Santos Barrera, from Harlandale High School (San Antonio, TX), played both free safety and cornerback. He is very attentive in man coverage, and excels playing zone, reading routes nicely and jumping route effectively. Somerset High School’s (Somerset, TX) 2017 DB Anthony Estrada is a solid cover corner and works well reading the quarterback in zone coverage. None of Estrada’s moves are wasted. 2018 defensive back Joshua Moore, out of Yoakum High School (TX) is an excellent prospect along with his twin brother Jordan. This kid can cut on a dime, has great length, possesses elite speed, and catches everything in sight. Foster High School (Richmond, TX) 2018 DB Christian Young is a long, lanky prospect whose overall improvement during the camp was impressive. Another Steele High School DB, Jayveon Cardwell’s improvement from start to finish was impressive. Cardwell is a really hard worker who is very good in zone coverage and reads the quarterback’s eyes well. Randy Wistner, 2018 defensive back from Nederland High School (TX) went head to head with some very good receivers and held his own. He has the drive to learn and kept getting better all weekend long.
Weatherford High School’s (TX) 2017 grad Marcus Buckley II is a very versatile three-down ‘backer, possessing the ability to put his hand in the dirt and come off the edge or stand up and drop into coverage. Could be a hybrid DE/LB at the next level. Buckley’s dad played at Texas A&M and with the New York Giants. Karen Wagner High School (San Antonio, TX) 2018 defensive lineman Spencer Burford worked out as a defensive end at camp even though he plays offensive lineman for his high school team. He showed very good promise playing on the defensive line and was rewarded him with an invitation to The 2017 National Combine at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
2017 kicker, Ronald Reagan High School’s (San Antonio, TX) Turner Davidson had the strongest leg at FBU San Antonio. He won almost all of the kicking competitions and booms it outside the end zone every time. Davidson has a big upside because not only is he a good kicker but a great person with good character as well. 2017 kicker/punter Zach Elder, out of Johnson High School (San Antonio, TX) can place the ball wherever he wants and with plenty of hang time. Tom C. Clark High School (San Antonio, TX) 2017 kicker Forrest Diaz has a good leg and can really boom the ball.
