B2C All American Game – Preview Top Lineman
Aiden Gaines – 8th Grade
Gaines burst onto the scene last year with a dominating performance on the offensive line and defensive line. His performance last year would help him earn All B2C Team honors and also B2C Lineman of the Year. This past football season was no different as Aiden was consistently the best player on the field week in and week out. Has the ability to play guard and center on offense. Has a great first step, a great initial punch and a mean streak to finish the defender of on run plays. On defense he is a terror. His initial quick step to go along with his use of his hands keeps Gaines in the backfield. If he is consistently in the play putting pressure on the Quarterback and changing the running lanes for the running backs.
Jacob Smith – 8th Grade
A 6ft, 250lb guard that can move!!! He is a mauler when it comes to blocking. Believes in locking on to his defender and literally driving them through the ground. A very smart player as well as he doesnt get confused when defenses trying to come up with various blitzes. Exceptional when getting to the second level as he looks to destroy the linebacker
Jackson Ramey – 8th Grade
At 6”4, 260 the long lineman has a chance to be special. Already one of the top weight lifter in the country, Jackson has the strength to play the position. In the run game when he gets his hands on the defender then they are in trouble. In the pass game he has an initial punch that 90% of the time stops the pass rusher immediately. Jackson has B2C Prime Top 10 player potential written all over him.
Jack Nickel – 6th Grade
Jack is one of the few 6th graders that have ben selected to play in the 7th grade game. Standing at 6ft already the TE/DE can get the job done. He is big and physical reminding us a younger Landon Rice from Calhoun who recently played in the Under Armour All American game. Can line up out wide and play WR as he is deadly at high pointing the ball. On defense he gets up field very well and uses his hands and length to get the blacker off balance so he can make a play in the backfield.
Jelani “Tank” Thurman – 5th Grade
Has a chance to be special. Comes from great genes as his mother is a professional basketball player and father was the former NFL rookie of the year. On the field he is a monster and deservedly so the #1 player in the country in his class. On defense he has a great burst and a motor that doesn’t stop. On offense he is a matchup nightmare, he can literally line up all over the field and be productive for his team. He can put his hand in the dirt and block or he can line up out wide and make plays. He is a mix between Isaac Nauta (#1 TE for Class 2016) and Justin Mascol (#1 DE for class 2018), again we say he has the ability to be special.
