Dublin, Ohio - Our summer high school camp tour has culminated with a stop down the road to the Top Gun Academy.
Football University put on a spectacle featuring a bevy of talented high school recruits with over 750 prospects from all over the world. The event kicked off with a high-energy opening ceremony with speeches from Jonathan Franklin and Denard Robinson.
More impressive than the list of athletes was the coaching talent offered up to Top Gun participants. It was a who’s who of former NFL coaches and athletes highlighted by Buddy Geis, Peter Vaas, Billie “White Shoes” Johnson, Ted Cottrell, Ray Buchanan, and Rod Woodson – to name a few. After touring several ‘national’ camps – I can say the level of instructional quality that FBU accumulated was unprecedented.
The talent on the field was exceptional – to say the least. It was a near impossible task for one man to check in on all the talent spread over the many fields of Dublin Jerome High School. I focused on the main field – hosting the top skill players in the event.
As expected the ‘big names’ showed up almost instantly. It’s impossible not to notice guys like Dylan Moses, who recently donned the cover of ESPN the Magazine. Moses was as well-developed as any player in the event – despite being an incoming freshman. It was evident why teams are rolling out the red carpet for his services.
