DULUTH, GA — Football University invaded Atlanta with its youth and high school camp. The energy was high, the weather perfect for great technique, training, and instruction. Memorial Day Weekend would be a chance for the best youth and high school football talent to display it to the world.
During the classroom sessions, camp participants got an opportunity to learn from instructors who have college and NFL experience and knowledge. The students became sponges to their knowledge and expertise, as the Football University instructors breakdown each position.
Although the level of talent was high, a few athletes stood out from the rest:
Wide Receiver, Rising Senior out of Minster Christian Academy, St. Louis, MO
Kyle put on a clinic during the 1 on 1’s. This FBU St. Louis MVP came to Georgia to put in some work.
Wide Receiver, Brookwood High School
Nick’s height is one of his competitive advantages that he uses to dominate. Look for Nick on the high school gridiron.
Quarterback, 6th grade
Born to Compete was introduced to Harrison at a young age. Amazingly this kid was able to run a spread offense at the age of 8. His maturity has helped him improve his skills. Harrison has an arm like a cannon, with the accuracy to match it.
Wide Receiver, Rising Freshman, Pace Academy
Malik has improved his game, and it showed during the 1 on 1’s. His size will help him push off defenders this high school season.
Quarterback, Rising Senior, Pace Academy
A dual-threat quarterback who just loves to play. Kevin has fast feet, great field vision, and a strong, yet accurate arm. Kevin is on the radar for this year’s Top Gun Camp.
Cornerback, Rising Freshman, Duluth High School
During the camp, we had a chance to look back at his youth football career, and see how his play has just gotten better and better over time. Jamyest will do well at the high school level. Quick feet and hands, along with great body positioning helped Jamyest dominate during the 1 on 1’s. By the way, he can add another award under his belt.
Offensive Tackle, North Gwinnett High School
When speaking with the FBU Staff, this kid had to be one of the most talked about athletes of this year’s camp. Walking away with another award from the FBU Atlanta Camp, Mitch looks to take what he learned, and help his team to another great season.
Quarterback, Rising Freshman out of Greater Atlanta Christian School
Coming off of another Gwinnett Football League 8th Grade Championship, Davis is looking to make his mark in the high school arena. Davis has great poise in the pocket and is not afraid to tuck the ball and run if needed.

Chris was very impressive during his 1 on 1’s and is also on the radar for a Top Gun camp invite.

Sam, physically, is very strong and has the perfect height for his position. A mentally tough athlete who thrives off of competition, Sam got through the 1 on 1’s with ease.
Wide Receiver, Rising Freshman
Gibbs had a lot of eyes on him in FBU Atlanta, after all he did play on FBU’s National Championship team, running clinics on his competition. The pressure of living up to his hype did not get to him because he performed very well, winning an award at this year’s camp.
Linebacker, Collins Hill High School
