Last week’s National Combine at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl featured 250 student-athletes that got their start at a Football University Regional Camp and the organization’s national Top Gun Showcase.
EJ Ndoma-Ogar, a 6-foot-3 and 300-pound junior offensive tackle for the state champion Allen Eagles, and Elijah Higgins, a 6-foot-3 and 215-pound receiver from Bowie High School, earned two of the top three honors.
EJ Ndoma-Ogar, ALLEN
Ndoma-Ogar, who has been an annual attendee of Texas FBU Camps since middle school, was the national combine’s top performer and overall MVP and showed a combination of supreme technique and skill. His yearly work at FBU with NFL Coaches, on the field and in the film room, has helped propel him to the national stage. He is expected to play in the 2019 All-American Bowl after receiving an invite after the National Combine.
Elijah Higgins, BOWIE
The 2018 National Combine Offensive MVP was none other than FBU Camp alum and 2019 wide receiver Elijah Higgins, who was a matchup issue for every defensive back he encountered.
He had the same affect during the regular season, helping Head Coach Jeff Ables and Austin Bowie’s Bulldogs finish 8-3 overall and 4-1 in District 14-6A and reach the bi-district round of the postseason. With Higgins as a focal point, they scored an average of 33.2 points per game through 11 matchups.
During the combine Higgins displayed great size and speed, but it was his supreme technical skill and countless hours preparing for the stage that is the National Combine that set him apart and earned him the honor.
