Jared put together his best FOF event finish to date. He was relentless all weekend and one of the toughest matchups for the entire field. Jared does everything well and seems to be very under the radar. We expect that won’t be the case for long.
Finn put together a really nice weekend and one of the things that stands out the most with him is his strength. Finn was excellent off the ground and very efficient with his clamp. He gave opponents trouble routinely.
Noah was very impressive at the Finale. His effort is nearly unmatched. He was poised when he won the clamp, scrappy when he lost, and made everyone who had to face him work to earn every inch. Noah was consistently a problem for opponents and we see a ton of potential in him.
Aaron came right from a football game to make the tail end of day 1 and came into day 2 extremely hot. His hand speed, toughness, gb ability, and overall determination make him very special. Aaron has seen no ingly won countless FOF events and maybe the top specialist in the 26-class

Foster continues to standout as one of the top 26’s from the West at our FOF events. Despite the cross-country trip, Foster was dialed in for the entirety of the weekend and looked extremely comfortable, confident, and quick off the whistle. A regular at our So-Cal sessions with Coach Marino, Foster has proven he is a guy to keep an eye on over the next year.
The Rochester product showcased one of the best clamps at the event. His ability to transfer his weight allowed for him to have success throughout the weekend. His neutral exit versus counters was seemingly automatic, as he continues to progress he will be a stud moving forward.
