Garrett Borth, a Gardner Edgerton High School freshman, has been invited and will be competing at the nation’s top prep football All-Star camp, Football University’s Top Gun at Dublin Jerome high school in Dublin, Ohio July 21-24.
Borth was invited to Top Gun because of his outstanding performance as a defensive end at the FBU Denver camp. Borth will join more than 800 of the nation’s other top athletes at their respective positions and will train with current and former NFL players and coaches.
Top Gun is the culmination of Football University’s 30-camp nationwide tour, 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 are quarterbacks Coach Jeff Rutledge, former quarterback coach of the Arizona Cardinals; wide receiver coach Billy “White Shoes” Johnson, 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.
Rivals.com, a website devoted to elite athletics, calls the event one of the biggest.
“No event is bigger than Football University’s Top Gun. It is easily the most highly-anticipated camp for us because of the level of talent,” the site reports.
Garrett is the son of Wally and Dawn Borth of Gardner.
