This past Sunday B2G Sports launched their revolutionary open group sessions known as "Instinct Training (IT)…" 62 hungry athletes came together and went through a workout designed to be practical, competitive, and enjoyable. All-Everything Crenshaw LB Hayes Pullard had this to say about opening day, "It was tight! Excellent workout. (IT) made me want to come back now every week. IT's going to get me a lot better for the season."
It didn't hurt that it took place on USC's practice field either. For the next 14 weeks, IT sessions will be held every Sunday at 2 pm at Cathedral HS next to Dodger Stadium. All levels of talented athletes showed up from Youth Football to the Pac 10. Top recruits like Kemonte Bateman (Top WR in '08, ASU), Chris Metcalf (USC Commit), and Byron Moore (U.S. Army All-American) came out to start their off-season training the same time the colleges are. Some of the best prospects from the class of 2010 that turned heads were RB DJ Morgan (Taft), Safety Sean Parker (Narbonne H.S.), RB Exavier Edwards (Orange Lutheran), CB Shaquille Richardson (Los Alamitos H.S.), and RB Cameron Roberson (Newbury Park).

"Every school in the Pac-10 has a bunch of guys on the roster just like you! ", shouted B2G Sports co-founder, Ron Allen. It's one of the main reasons for the talented turnout of B2G's Instinct Training this past Sunday afternoon. Football players from all over Southern California came out to downtown L.A. to get an advantage that could help earn not only a college scholarship but a starting spot on a BCS Team.
The resumes of the staff included a lot of professional playing experience and even more from college. Dante Hughes was on hand to share some things that helped him win a Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year Award in 2006. Currently playing DB for the Indianapolis Colts, Hughes still gives a lot of credit to B2G Sports for his success. Some of B2G's younger alumni like Lucky Radley of Agoura HS showed up to train and add to the competition. Radley recently earned an early offer from the University of Arizona.
Other guys with high school eligibility left, like Lucky, represented too. Dietrich Riley, who received an early offer from USC last year out of St. Francis HS in La Canada, worked on his game with other top prospects from the 2010 class. "I never get to work on my footwork like this so I'll be back for sure. I need it." He mentioned.
Another standout junior with obvious BCS talent that turned heads out there was Christian "Pookah" Thomas from Highland HS in Palmdale. Half the players that saw him for the first time thought he was on staff. I even heard one player call him Coach before he found out that they were the same age. Shaquille Richardson from Los Alamitos HS impressed the whole group with his cover skills for the second week in a row.
Look for all three of these 2010 prospects this summer at the B2G Elite Program. They were awarded the first official invitations to the prestigious event at the end of the training session. We can't wait to see who earns one this Sunday…Cathedral HS 2pm. Until then…Congrats fellas!
