East English Village Prep 2017 OL Tyrone Sampson is a dominant interior offensive lineman who has a wide frame, but also moves extremely well.  Sampson had a rare loss on a rep, but fought back to win a rubber match rep right before the camp concluded.  Sampson was one of the Freshman 2 years ago who received an early offer from Akron and has had a few since, but more offers will definitely be coming soon.  Sampson was selected as the offensive MVP of the camp.

Rockford 2018 OL Cody Carone is used to meeting and exceeding the physicality of opponents in Rockford's run first offense.  Carone carried over his skills to Camp Pride and was a big time standout.  Carone lined up at OT in 1 on 1's, but is better suited in games in the interior.

Ann Arbor Skyline 2018 OL/DL Thomas Hornberger used his technique well throughout the day as he was definitely one of the other major standouts along the offensive line.  Hornberger did 1 on 1's at offensive tackle and split two reps.

Flint Powers 2018 OT Michael Pellizzari has great size already at 6'4" 300 lbs and moves well for this size.   Pellizzari has a mean streak playing style that was apparent at Camp Pride as he was constantly active with his hands and making it tough on opposing DL.

Troy 2018 OL Alex Samson is another big one at 6'4" 270 lbs who moves well for size.  Samson's overall footwork and hand techniques are good and will be tuned up surely where ever he winds up in college.

Detroit Central 2018 OL/DL Colin Sartor possesses good size for an interior lineman and very strong footwork as well.  Sartor plays very smart and has a high GPA to back that up.  Sartor is under the radar now, but that could change soon.

Cass Tech 2019 OC/OG Christian Dudley enters his Junior season at the perfect time as Cass Tech's entire offensive line from 2016 graduates.  Dudley figures to earn a starting spot somewhere in the interior and will definitely be one to watch the next 2 years.  Dudley has a bit of tools that just need more sharpening.

Grand Rapids Christian 2018 OL/DL Malachi Price was in the best of the best.  Price has good overall athleticism so will be interesting to see where he projects to play on the next level.  Price has good physical traits, definitely along with Carone mentioned above, one of the best returning lineman on the west side of the state.

Lowell 2018 RT Caleb Devereaux comes from power house program on the west side of the state and film shows a dominate presence.  Devereaux has some tools in place as he moves well at 6'1" 250 lbs and is a mauler.

River Rouge 2019 OL Dontrell Walker is young, but learning the ropes really fast at upstart program, River Rouge.  Walker has really toned up his overall feet movement and strength which allowed him to cash in a good camp performance.

Saline 2018 OT Zarek Bratschi has good fundamentals and good balance which allowed him to do well.  Bratschi uses utilizes his leverage wel.  Definitely a next level recruit, Saline can pump out an offensive lineman that is college ready any time.

Anchor Bay 2019 OG/NG Mike Biecker has some good tools in place that were improved during Camp Pride.  Biecker has a nice frame and size which should allow him to piece together his attributes and be a dominant force these next 2 years.

Belleville 2021 OL Damon Payne will be the talk of the future as the current 8th grader has an D2 and NAIA offer already.  At 6'4" 260 lbs Payne dominates his age group and will continue to as well, so Camp Pride allowed for a much better competition.  Payne did well and held his own vs. a very deep defensive line group.
