Elite 101: Deeper Look at 45-41

(Youth1 Football) - With the Elite 101 list being a first of its kind, it is making national headlines and revolutionizing youth football.  These athletes, their families, coaches and teammates have all worked hard to help make this a reality.  Each day we'll take a deeper look at several of the Elite 101 members, so readers can gain more insight into each player.  Let's take a look at 45-41. 

 Main.Billy.Deeper

Billy Main

Stanwood, Washington is home to our biggest offensive lineman on the Elite101, Billy Main. Main has enormous size for a youth lineman at 6’4 and 255 pounds. Main is a well-mannered athlete off the field but on he’s as fierce as can be. For his performance at FBU Seattle earlier this year, Main earned a spot on Team Washington’s FBU National Championship team. Main has the size, athletic ability, and versatility to play any position because he gets off the line quickly and squares up through the hole. He’s a great run blocker and an elite pass blocker. He is the type of offensive lineman that you can build your entire team around because he sets the tone for everyone. In the past Main has gotten by on size alone but speaking with scouts and coaches from Washington, Main has really has really started to do the extra things to be a great big man on the line.

GallmanII.Eric.Deeper

Eric Gallman II

A smaller receiver with outstanding hands combined with incredible speed and agility, North Carolina’s Eric Gallman II is the perfect slot receiver. Standing 5’4” and 130 lbs., Gallman II uses his smaller frame to slip between defenders and find space in the middle, and he’s dangerous in the open field when he gets the ball in his hands. A performer at this year’s Top Gun and Junior Rank, Gallman II displayed great route running and agility when separating from defensive backs and made catches all over the field. Too fast for linebackers and safeties and too athletic for most corners, Gallman II is a tough assignment for any defender. Gallman may have been overlooked at the national level in years past because of his size but after watching him dominant the best of the best at two camps, there’ no more denying that this young man is one of the best receivers in the 2017 class.

 Clifford.Sean.Deeper

Sean Clifford

Standing tall in the pocket at 6'0" and 155 lbs., Sean Clifford fits the mold of the classic gunslinger quarterback. He has a cannon for an arm, launching deep passes with accuracy and touch while making it look effortless, as well as accurate short and intermediate passes. A two-time invitee to NFA’s Duel of the Dozens and FBU’s Top Gun, Clifford was also one of four quarterbacks selected to the Eastbay Youth All-American game this past January. Although he has the athleticism and speed to make plays with his legs on designed QB runs, he’s a passer first and will buy himself time while constantly looking downfield, a trait not often found in young passers. A natural playmaker who finished the 2011 campaign with 18 touchdowns and only four picks, Clifford looks to have a monster season this year. In addition to his strong touchdown to interception ratio, Clifford connected on 85 of 151 passing attempts and thew for 1,375 yards last season.

Dace.Kenton.Deeper

Kenton Dace

Dace is a player who is building a strong reputation on Texas for being a dominant player on the defensive line. After a strong performance in the Eastbay Youth All-American Bowl in January, Dace has continued to get bigger and stronger, measuring in at 5’10 and 250 pounds. Dace, who plays for Deion Sanders’ T.R.U.T.H. team, will actually be headed to Primetime Prep in his high school years to continue with his close affiliation with the Hall of Famer. Dace is a multisport athlete who is extremely quick off the ball, which allows him to make a number of plays behind the line of scrimmage. When he wants to display it, he has top end agility for a big man with great feet. Dace needs to become more consistent and when he does, he has all the tools to shut down the line of scrimmage.
 
Massenburg.Tayquan.Deeper

Taquan Massenburg

A monster of a player out of Detroit, Michigan, Taquan "Tay Tay" Massenburg is one of the biggest players on our list and is the biggest receiver, measuring in at 6’1” and 207 lbs. He’s a rare combination of size and speed as well, running a 4.6 40-yard dash and displaying outstanding agility and quickness with the ball. A complete receiver, Massenburg can make big plays out of screen passes, fight through the middle to make tough catches, and is a deep threat with his height and strong hands. He has great leaping ability as well, and his toughness and skill set makes him a prefect target in the red zone. Expect to hear about this elite player for a long time. Massenburg was a standout two-way player on the Eastside Tigers team “B” squad that won the Detroit PAL championship on the turf at Ford Field last season.
