Best of the Best: Bench was named top quarterback and he had a very good day. He could have put a little better spin on the ball, but that is getting a little picky. He was extremely accurate, he threw the ball with the best velocity, and he got rid of the ball quickly.
Best of the Best: It came down to a battle between Rowe and Allen. In the end, Allen was named top running back. He showed great hands, good quickness, and he was tough to get a hand on throughout the event.
