January 24, 2012By DeMarco King of Justin F Kimball High School
This weekend some of the 2013 and 2015 Kimball prospects stood at at the 5 Star Performance camp held at Grand Prairie H.S. On Saturday, it was time for the 2013-14 day to show what they had on the bench press, 40 yard test, vertical, standing broad jump, and the 20 yard shuttle before going onto the field at the Gopher Bowl and showing off their on the field performance. The camp had represenatives from various evaluation services such as Old Coach and Rivals.com.
On the field, Tra Thibodeaux might just made his stand as one of the best athletes to look out for in 2013. He clocked the fastest time with an electronic time of 4.49. He worked out at QB and then shifted to the other side of the ball at cornerback. "He showed that he's very athletic and his ranking should go up with the time that he ran, said Camp Coordinator Mark McDuffie. Justin Manning had open more eyes to people who didn't know him. He earned the Top Defensive Lineman Award. "With Justin, I felt that he should've camp out and did what he did today. He should be ranked as a 5 Star Recruit" said Director Clearence Nevels.
On Sunday, it was time for the 2015-17 to show that they had both in testing and on the field. Deandrian "Da-Da" Hancock received the Top Runningback Award and LaDaryl Blair received the Top Quarterback Award. Wideout, Xzaiver Johnson ran a 4.68 electronic timed and had a vertical of 32 inches. Kimball did well on both days and seem to have enough talent to compete for a state title starting in the Fall.
