Major's speed and agility were on full display, showcasing his ability to chase down plays and make an impact in coverage. His quickness and knack for filling gaps earned him recognition as the SWAC Defensive Player of the Year.

Richard, the Offensive MVP, displayed his leadership, arm strength, and dual-threat abilities throughout the week. Despite suffering a leg injury, he showed why he was the best player at the event and a top prospect for the NFL.

Stewart's aggressive playing style and passion for competition make him a promising prospect at right tackle. His physicality and dedication to his craft stood out during the practices and drills leading up to the game.
