Several Gridironstuds Members Impress at ’09 Nike 7 on 7 Event
Last week’s Nike 7 on 7 tournament in Beaverton, Oregon hosted some of the best high school football talent in the country and the players did not disappoint.
In the legion of stars on the fields, none shined brighter than Miami Northwestern quarterback and Gridironstuds.com member Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater led his team Miami Vapor Trail to the overall championship with precision passing and great athleticism. Through five games, Bridgewater was 150-103 for 68% completion rate. He totaled 1,739 yards passing and threw 19 TD’s against only one interception. With that kind of performance there’s little wonder why Vapor Trail took home the trophy.
Other Gridironstuds.com members putting up strong performances were Jesse Scroggins QB Lakewood H.S. (California), fellow Lakewood standout DB Dion Bailey. Pahokee High School’s Chris Dunkley and DeJoshua Johnson. Bridgewater’s Miami Northwestern teammates Michaelee Harris and Khambrel McGee. DeSoto H.S. (Texas) cornerback Adrian White.
There really were some outstanding individual performances, plays and displays of athleticism in the tournament. You have to be amazed at the level of speed, strength and power of the high school football players today.
