The Opening 2016 Results: MVP Winner and Finalists Performances

Published by Bleacher Report on Mon, 11 Jul 2016

The final day of The Opening 2016 gave the best high school football players in the nation one more opportunity to show what they could bring to the next level.On Sunday, the festivities wrapped up with the seven-on-seven championship game and the naming of the The Opening's most valuable player. The Opening ChampionshipIn the final game of The Opening, Team Vapor Speed, made up largely of University of Oklahoma and University of Alabama commits, defeated Team Fly Rush 38-20:Team Vapor Speed dominated the championship game, quickly jumping out to a 22-0 lead to put any sort of competitive questions away.Alabama quarterback commit TuaTagovailoa opened the scoring with a short touchdown pass to fellow Alabama commit Tyrell Shavers on Vapor Speed's first possession of the day, via Bleacher Report's Tyler Donohue:It quickly became 16-0 when Tagovailoa picked apart the Fly Rush defense, exhibiting his ability to complete the intermediate throws with pinpoint accuracy, via Donohue:Tagovailoa's third touchdown pass of the first half found another Alabama commit, wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, who showed his ability to make a quick cutupfieldand make a defender miss even while playing a one-hand touch game of football, via Donohue:He spread the love to Oklahoma commits too, as his fourth and final touchdown of the game went to wide receiver Jalen Reagor. It wasn't an easy throw either, as he had to thread the needle in between a pair of defenders to find his receiver, via Donohue:Jeudy recorded two touchdown receptions on the day, his second coming from Oklahoma commit Christopher Robison as Vapor Speed's final score of the game. Most Valuable PlayerTagovailoa won the seven-on-seven and Elite MVP thanks to his dominant four-touchdown performance in the championship game.Elite 11 showed him accepting his award with former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer:The dual-threat quarterback hailing from Honolulu is the No. 1 recruit out of his state and the No. 2 dual-threat quarterback in the nation, per247Sports' composite ratings.Given that quarterbacks during the seven-on-seven tournament had only 3.5 seconds to get rid of the ball before the officials would call them for a delay of game, Tagovailoa wasn't able to show off half of his game, which is his above-average athleticism with his legs.For Alabama coaches and fans watching, it would be hard not to feel good about Tagovailoa's performance at The Opening, as the young recruit will only get better with time and could one day be the man starting under center in Tuscaloosa.Recruiting information courtesy of 247Sports unless noted otherwise.
