WR Bralon Addison (5-10, 184)
At times watching Addison, it just did not seem fair. He came off the line and immediately the cornerback seemed to be beat. He has a great first step, which gives him a huge advantage. Defenders were not able to press Addison as he uses his hands well off the line. Combine that with sharp cuts and exceptional hands, and you have a blue-chip wide receiver, which is exactly what was shown when Addison steps on the field.

OL Blake Blackmar (6-5, 299)
For all you recruitniks out there, go ahead and mark this name down for the class of 2014. Yes, the upcoming sophomore was easily one of the best five linemen in rotation present. He has good feet and uses his hands well in pass coverage. Word is, Blackmar started four games last season as a freshman for Clear Lake. Here is a future Scout300 left tackle. Remember where you heard it first.

WR Chance Allen (6-2, 185)
After watching several clips of Allen this off-season, it was interesting to see how he has progressed. And on Sunday, he made a strong case. Allen showed that he is indeed one of the state's top wide outs. With his long stride, he was in the hip pocket of his defender quickly. While still a bit raw in his route running, he was able to get separation and made the catch. On the day he caught several tough passes which was quite impressive.

WR Blake Webb (5-11, 173)
Don't let the youthful look on Webb fool you, the kid can ball. By his third repetition on the day one glaring fact was exposed. Not a single defensive back could cover him. He runs his routes smooth and crisp and once he got the corners on their heels, he made his move. And whether it was a good pass or not, Webb showed soft hands and caught anything near him.

QB Brooks Haack (6-1, 189)
For most of the day, Haack was throwing some heat. On the out route or the post, he was on the money. Showed pretty good feet in his drops and had a nice following through on the long balls. Developed a nice working relationship on the day with Webb who is mentioned above. They made a nice tandem. 

RB Johnathan Johnson (5-8, 169)
Even in an environment where there no pads, Johnson showed a lot of aggression in his route running. He ran hard, crisp routes and was able to get open against the secondary guys lined up across from him. Usually, like he does with his high school: Friendswood, he would come out of the backfield, but got a lot of work with the receivers, a position he may play on the next level. 

Other Notable Players: Manvel WR Austin Bennett (6-0, 155), QB Pasadena Dobie Blake Jackson (5-10, 190), SA Brandeis OL Kyle Marrs (6-5, 317), Coldspring WR Sherman Gilbert (5-9.5, 160), Chavez WR Keith Hartaway (5-11, 177), QB Jeremiah Briscoe (6-3, 198)
