Alex Hammond of Auburn High School, Class of 2017 competed at the nation’s top high school football showcase, Football University (FBU) Top Gun, at Dublin Jerome High School in Dublin, Ohio this past weekend.  Being a part of Top Gun means that these players are considered the best at their respective positions.

Alex was invited to Top Gun because of his outstanding performance as a Defensive End at the FBU Boston camp. He will join more than 800 of the nation’s top athletes at their respective positions and will train with current and former NFL coaches and players.

Top Gun is the culmination of Football University’s 24-camp nationwide camp season gathering the most elite performers from across the United States and allowing them to compete and display their abilities together on one stage. Football University has an impressive alumni list that includes some of the top college football recruits and players in the nation. Headlining the Top Gun Showcase coaching staff are quarterback coach Jeff Rutledge, former quarterback coach of the Arizona Cardinals; running back coach Robert Edwards, offensive line coach Jim McNally, who is considered the best offensive line coach in the game; defensive back coach Ray Buchanan; and wide receiver coach Charlie Collins, who is considered one of the finest receiver coaches in the game.

According to 24/7 Sports, “No event is bigger than Football University Top Gun. It is easily the most highly-anticipated camp for us because of the level of talent.”

More than 800 elite high school football players from across the country and approximately 75 coaches with NFL experience participate in Top Gun.
