The D Zone was in Pennsylvania over the weekend to check out Flint based 475 Elite Training as they competed in a competitive PA Swag East Coast Elite tournament sanctioned by the NFA with many of the East Coast's top 7on7 programs.

The D Zone Showstopper:

Flint Carman-Ainsworth 2020 QB Dustin Fletcher was outstanding leading 475 A to a 4-1-1 record during the weekend. Fletcher threw for 15 TD's in the 6 games and so you're aware, NFA rules really favor the defense by awarding points for 3 & Outs and interceptions, so QB's over the weekend actually have pressure to get first downs in key situations. In total 5 different receivers caught TD's from Fletcher and several others added receptions. The 6'4 QB currently holds 15 offers.

Davison 2020 WR Latrell Fordham is a 6'2 170 receiver who took over the tournament with several tough grabs in traffic and others where he outran the defense to become wide open. With his long arms defenders struggled vs. Fordham. He finished the weekend with 6 touchdowns and 3 conversion receptions.

Goodrich 2021 WR/CB Tyson Davis is a 5'9 155 lbs ATH who was a force on both sides of the ball all weekend long for 475. The sophomore who holds a CMU offer ran his routes too well and was far too shifty for opponents. Davis finished with 4 touchdown receptions and 1 conversion reception on top of a handful of other receptions. Defensively he had an interception, several PBU's and was not easy to pass on.

Davison 2020 LB Logan Pasco is a 6' 205 lbs tackling machine who picked up his first offer on Monday from Youngstown State University. Pasco ran well covering backs out of the backfield, had at least 3 PBU's, and a miraculous interception in their first playoff game.

Hamady 2020 ATH Deonte McCoy is the state's #120 2020 recruit and after returning from an injury showed no signs of an injury that ended his junior season early. McCoy utilized his shifty abilities and speed to cause separation routinely. McCoy will star for the Hawks at QB his senior season but is no doubt a; Slot, Kick/Punt Returner, or DB in college. McCoy scored 5 touchdowns and added 1 conversion reception.

Grand Blanc 2021 CB David Childs had a quiet performance but that's not to say he didn't have a meaningful performance as Childs had 1 PBU but that would be enough as most QB's didn't look for windows around the 6' CB. At one point a QB saw he had his top WR 1 on 1 with Childs and audibled for a Fade but Childs was having none of that and the QB quickly realized that wouldn't be a smart move.

Flint Carman-Ainsworth 2020 CB/WR Kemarji Reynolds had a big weekend with over a half-dozen PBU's and was often on an island when playing CB. Reynolds had 3 PBU's alone in their first game vs. Evolve who had several D1 receivers.

Carrollton 2021 WR Caleb Carter was one of the more intriguing prospects at 6'2 175 lbs and at times showed just how dangerous he can be. Definitely a player to know these next 2 years.

Flint Carman-Ainsworth 2020 WR/CB Norman Montgomery was a key performer all weekend for 475 with some tough grabs in traffic and was a force on defense too.

Hamady 2020 WR/CB Korvion Jenkins had a big tournament for the A team with many key receptions and was solid coverage throughout the event. Jenkins certainly played a key role in the success of 475 by being a reliable target.

Grand Blanc 2021 QB Dion Brown led 475 B with 8 touchdown passes and certainly is a name to know going forward.

Flint Beecher 2021 CB Danny Bradley was physical all weekend long and didn't get beat much, Bradley who is around 5'8 made life miserable for a 6'5 TE/WR in pool play, holding the receiver to no meaningful catches in the game.

Flint Carman-Ainsworth 2021 S Jaheem Billingsley stood out throughout the weekend with some timely plays including a nice interception in 475 B's lone win.

Grand Blanc 2021 RB Teavion Warren had a nice performance with the A team over the weekend. Warren caught the ball well, showed off his speed, and the RB is definitely a player to know these next 2 years.

Beecher 2021 WR/DB Jacoby Sanders was a force for 475 B with some PBU's and a key interception as well as a pair of touchdowns on offense.
