As if Ty Evans hadn’t already asserted his dominance on the football field, the rising senior quarterback has been invited to one of the top quarterback camps in the nation – the Elite 11.

Evans competed at The Elite 11 regional competition in Dallas the weekend of April 29, and got the call on Friday that he had been invited to the finals June 1-3 at Redondo Beach, California.

The Elite 11 finals is an invite-only competition for the top-level rising senior quarterbacks. Each invitee will receive advanced quarterback instruction in a competitive setting against the best signal callers in the nation.

“The 2018 Elite 11 Finals will span three days and include on-field drills, routes-on-air, classroom instruction and off-field development,” The Elite 11 website states. “The Elite 11 will be named at the conclusion of The Elite 11 Finals and the selected athletes will compete at The Opening Finals.”

At the regional competition in Dallas, Evans earned an 82.62 rating, with a 31.5 vertical jump, 4.98-second 40-yard dash, 4.24 20-yard shuttle, and a 35.5 power ball throw (with a 6-pound ball).

Since winning the Class 3A state football title with Palmer Ridge, Evans has been selected as the Colorado Football Gatorade Player of the Year, Gazette Preps 3A-1A football Peak Performer of the Year, and received offers from some of the top Division I football programs in the country, including reigning playoff champions, Alabama.

According to the website, 11 of the past 12 Heisman-winning quarterbacks attended the Elite 11 Finals or an Elite 11 Regional.
