The top five performers from the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl...

CB Jonathan Lockett 

Mater Dei HS | CA
Team: West
Region: West
Recruiting: Committed to USC

Game Thoughts: Had an 81-yard punt return that broke the game open in the first quarter, locked down his receiver in coverage and had a breakup early in the game to put the West on top big early on.

DE Jordan Brailford 

Wasington HS | OK
Team: West
Region: Midlands
Recruiting: Committed to Oklahoma State

Game Thoughts: Brailford got constant pressure off the edge, had a key sack in the first quarter that got the momentum going in the West favor and kept constant pressure in the backfield.

QB Clayton Thorson

Wheaton HS | IL
Team: East
Region: Midwest
Recruiting: Committed to Northwestern

Game Thoughts: Was named the MVP by the Semper Fidelis Bowl after throwing two touchdowns and rushing for a touchdown in the game and almost led a comeback from a 28-0 deficit.

QB Brad Kaaya

Chaminade HS | CA
Team: West
Region: West
Recruiting: Committed to Miami

Game Thoughts: Kaaya got the momentum for the West going early, with a short touchdown run and two big passes, one that led to his run and the other that set up his 15-yard touchdown pass. 

LB Bobby Okereke

Foothill HS | CA
Team: West
Region: West
Recruiting: Committed to Stanford

Game Thoughts: Okereke was all over the place for the West, recording a game-high eight tackles, two tackles for loss and a pass breakup that ended the East's last gasp effort.

Brian Dohn, Chad Simmons, Greg Biggins, Greg Powers, Michael Clark and Ryan Gorcey contributed to this report.
