BEAVERTON, Ore. -- At the conclusion of the events at The Opening the staff of coaches led by Trent Dilfer selected the official "Elite 11" for the Class of 2014...

1. Sean White - Ft. Lauderdale, FL
After rough opening game in the 7-on-7 White turned up the heat and led his team to the Championship with quick decision making and accurate throws.

2. Kyle Allen - Scottsdale, AZ
Allen is one of the most accurate quarterbacks in recent memory. He has great anticipation and delivers the ball on time and on the money. Tight spiral.

3. Will Grier - Davidson, NC
As the temperature heated up, so did Grier's game. he has good velocity and gets the ball out in a hurry. He made his share of big plays in 7v7.

4. Jerrod Heard - Denton, TX
Heard was very consistent from the start to the finish of the event. When he was dialed in he was as hot as could be leading his team to TDs on 4-of-5 drives.

5. Jacob Park - Goose Creek, SC
He's got a good arm, and has pristine mechanics and a flawless delivery with great touch on his throws. Shows the polish every time he lets it loose.

6. David Blough - Carrollton, TX
A fiery competitor who plays the game with grit and passion. He makes quick reads and has the arm and accuracy to make all of the throws.

7. Drew Barker - Hebron, KY
A big armed quarterback who is built like a tank. He can get the ball down the field in a hurry and made a few big plays for his team with the deep ball.

8. Luke Rubenzer - Scottsdale, AZ
Rubenzer is like a pitcher who still hits 90 even though he’s not 6’5; he gets a lot on his throws. But being undersized, he has to use a big windup

9. Brad Kaaya - West Hills, CA
Threw the ball accurately more consistently with a tight spiral. He’s also a big, broad shouldered player who shows off a strong arm.

10. Deshaun Watson - Gainesville, GA
He’s not the biggest or have the strongest arm, but he nearly always throws an accurate catchable ball. Has enough arm to be more than just a system guy.

11. K.J. Carta-Samuels - San Jose, CA
A quarterback who may have the least amount of live throws and plays in a run heavy HS offense, who showed a decent arm and ability.
