Charter Oak’s Zion Echols named Offensive MVP of U.S. Army All-American All-Combine Team


Charter Oak all-purpose threat Zion Echols was named Offensive MVP of the U.S. Army All-American All-Combine Team this weekend in San Antonio, Texas. The event is designed to showcase next year’s top football recruits while this year’s get ready for Sunday’s nationally televised all-star game.

Echols, who already had plenty of recruiting interest, may see his stock really take off because of what he did at Friday’s combine. Bishop Amat’s Tyler Vaughns, a the Tribune’s Player of the Year, was chosen as honorable mention on the All-Combine offensive team.

Echols rushed for 1,141 yards and 18 touchdowns last season. He also had 553 yards and six touchdowns receiving. Echols was named co-MVP of the Hacienda League after helping the Chargers to the league title.

    He’s already at the top of USC’s recruiting list.

  • Valley Athletics

    That makes it 3 players from the valley who have received mvp at diferent combines . Tre Sidney ,Tyler vaughns And Zion Echols have all received top honors the last couple years against the nations best . What a talented class the valley has for 2016.

    I would say with some certainty that the “fishbowl” could put together an all star team that would compete with the IE, SB or RC teams…anyday. And that is just the ESGV!

    • Fight ON #9

      It’s a shame that they all can’t be on the same team. This class is the most talented across the board to come out of SGV in a long time. Vaughns, Sydney, Fink, Echols, should all be playing on Saturday during the 2016-2017 season. With the success of BA and CO this past season I hope they schedule the CIF finals on different days so everyone can support all of our boys. Great job of putting SGV on the map when it comes to top prep talent nationally. Keep grinding!!!
