Evaluation Summary

my football evaluation

The MFE-index rating – is an exclusive evaluation using the metrics of individual profile, athletic ability, fundamental display of position mastery and level of play!  

Level of Play Evaluation Scale: Evaluation of a High School Football player as it relates to Projected Level of Play, Impact at the College Level, Projected College Starter and Post College Projection.

*Resources include 247 Sports, Rivals, level of play rating criteria combined with the MFE-Index +  *100+ years of College coaching and recruiting experience. 

Division 1 – FBS HS Prospects – (4.5 – 7.0)

*5.5 – 6.0 – Probable Starter at Primary Position – (Composite Ranking 5.5-5.7 Rivals / 3-Stars – 70-79 / 247Sports 90-97) / (5.5 = Potential Starter / 6.0 = Probable Starter.) 

*Gabe’s MFE-Index Level of Play Rating = 6.0 – Probable Starter at Primary Position!


Why are you a college student-athlete prospect? Gabriel is an excellent student and has a desire to apply his leadership off and on the field. As a Sophomore, he had 58 tackles as a Rover. This year he moved to the Sam LB position. We are excited to see how God will use him at the next level.

Skill Set Breakdown

LB Profile Evaluation relating to level of play through the lens of a College Coach:

FCS Linebacker – Evaluation and profile will vary on Coach specifics of MLB & OLB!

Physical Measurables:                       Key Stats:

  • Height: 6’1″ – 6’2” 40yd: 4.65 on Beam!
  • Weight: 200 lbs. – 220lbs. Bench: 300 – 315 lbs.            Squat: 425 lbs. – 435lbs

Coach Keys: *Physical Impact– Displays the skill set of a FBS LB just not as consistent and profile is not total package either size or weight or speed differ by small amounts.  Displays very good ability to take over a game physically.  Very good disrupter all over the field.  Physically is very good factor knocking blockers and ball-carriers on the ground and backwards. Very good instincts with a very good nose for the ball. Strong and explosive to play at LOS, athletic as a skill player to play in space.  / *Versatile Efficiency– Displays very good loose hips and very good knee bend playing under pads exploding on contact. / *Effort & Motor – Very good match up with RB, TE, Slot and can run with all. Very good understanding of pursuit angles with very good closing speed in space, level changing hips on target and accelerating feet. / *Demonstrates High Level Ability – Multi-year starter, All District with some National recognition from recruiting media.

*Phase 1 – Physical Profile: (Verified #’s for all athletes to get an accurate evaluation of core strength and explosive speed)

Position Specific Key Stats – (We will update Gabe’s numbers as they are verified numbers!)

40-yard dash: A measure of off-the-mark quickness and transition to top speed.

Vertical jump: Your vertical jump height and body weight are factored together to assess your peak power.

5-10-5 shuttle (also known as the 20-yard shuttle run): a drill demanding split second changes of posture, direction, and speed.

Kneeling powerball toss: a test designed to measure the ability to develop and deliver coordinated power.

A player’s results in those four exercises, when normalized by weight, gives a number that measures the player’s power, agility, speed, explosiveness, and overall athleticism.

*40 – Yard(Measurement of Athlete’s Linear Speed) – 4.5 

*Pro Shuttle – 5-10-5(Measurement of Athletes Change of Direction and Level Change of Hips) – 4.4

*L-Drill(Measurement run to evaluate the agility, quickness and fluidity of movement) –  

*Vertical Jump(Measurement of Athletes Explosive Quad Strength) – 

*Broad Jump(Measurement of Athletes Explosive Hip Strength) – 

*Bench Press – 290

*Squat – 400

*Power Clean


*Phase 2 – Competition Phase – (Completed for all athletes to get an accurate evaluation of effort, competitive edge and Level of Play.)

*Athletes Competitive edge: Gabe demonstrates a competitive edge playing at a high level as a young player. He looks the part of a future college athlete. He competes to the echo of the whistle. 

*Football IQ: Gabe has been asked by his coaches to play in space, off the edge and now in the middle. It is clear he understands the game, can process quickly and is very instinctive as the play develops.
