Passing Camp A Success For Many

Several top prospects were in attendance for a seven-on-seven passing camp on the Auburn campus.

Despite the outstanding efforts of linebacker Tray Blackmon, LaGrange was defeated in the finals by Carrollton (Ga.) High. Blackmon showed good speed and coverage skills and did nothing to hurt his reputation as one of the top linebackers in the country.

A teammate of Blackmon, wide receiver Demoreo Ford, shined in the two-day camp and impressed everyone with his speed and catching ability. Ford is a name to watch for in the coming weeks and months.

Luella (Ga.) High's Johnny Belt has all the physical tools to become a standout on the collegiate level at receiver. The 6-4, 185-pounder with good speed works against a double team in this photo.

Maybe the hardest worker on the field Thursday and Friday was linebacker Tavares Kearney from Tucker High. Splitting time between linebacker and wide receiver, Kearney made plays and fought through cramps to help his team to the championship round of play.

In addition to these players, tight end Tommy Trott from Trinity School in Montgomery and running back Brandyn Young also had a good two days of play in the camp.
