MVP Camp Showcases Newcomers

HAMPTON, Ga. - On a day consisting of mostly damp conditions, these high school athletes came to compete in Sunday's Atlanta MVP Camp at Twelve Oaks Stadium.

Top QB Award: Archer QB Gabe Tiller
Top WR/TE Award: Lee County WR Fundrail Quimbley
Top LB Award: Stockbridge LB Joshua Amanfo
Top DL Award: Arabia Mountain DL Theodore Eboigbe
Top RB Award: Jonesboro RB Artemus Mitchell
Top OL Award: Lee County OL Chris Barnes
Top DB Award: Lovejoy LB Montrell Custis
Top Underclassman Award: Mays LB Tobias Little
Top Overall Performer: Heard County OL Levi Brown

Sunday's Atlanta MVP Camp, hosted at Lovejoy High, made for plenty of competition. One of the most noticeable players was obviously Levi Brown, the camp's top overall performer. Brown gave no shortage of effort, as the 2015 offensive tackle was looking to make strides in his recruitment.

He's yet to receive offers from the SEC schools like Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee, but you can be sure he's interested. Today was a big step for the 6-foot-3, 235-pound prospect out of Franklin, Ga.

He benefited from the MVP Camp's style of instruction.

"I liked how interactive the coaches were and I liked how everything was individualized," Brown said. "Everybody had an equal chance to do something good, and the level of competition was great also."

While the idea of the best competition from around the area can often times be a bit intimidating, it didn't seem to have an effect on linebacker Tobias Little, and he was one of the youngest prospects to participate on Sunday.

The 2016 defender out of Mays High School made the most of his day, and his weekend.

"I feel like I accomplished something," Little said.

Little has an offer from Georgia Tech, and recently received another from Clemson. While the ACC schools are blowing up his phone, he's more interested in bringing some attention to his home team.

"Just starting off as a sophomore and getting big things like this (and) bringing it back to my school - it brings a lot of pride," Little said.

Pride is something Montrell Custis was feeling Sunday after winning the award for Top Defensive Back at the MVP Camp. The 2015 safety out of Lovejoy High is currently a three-star prospect committed to Kentucky, and Lexington feels a lot like home to him.

While he's committed, Custis is still keeping in close contact with other schools like Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, North Carolna State, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss and Mississippi State. While Custis, a safety standing in at six feet and weighing 180 pounds wouldn't mind heading to some more camps in the near future, he's relishing his rewards for Sunday's performance.

"Right now I'm just going to celebrate with this one trophy I've got," Custis said.

He's got a school selected, so he's got his eye on a bigger prize than just standing out for college recruiters.

"It really should help my stock, but I'm the type of guy that really doesn't care," Custis said. "I'm just going to play my game, ball out and help my team win games and hopefully win the state championship."

He did what he came to do, as did the other performers on this list of award winners.

"It was great competition out here - great atmosphere," Custis said. "I really came in to handle business and got what I came for, which is the trophy."
