SEATTLE - Jon Horton of assembles the top in-state football talent every year for a 'media session' at Qwest Field. The reason? He produces the popular 'Sports Blitz' segments on King-5 TV in Seattle (with Paul Silvi hosting), and each week a new player will be featured.

Horton was able to convince 21 of the state's top talent to come to Qwest Field on a Sunday to get pictures taken, interviews done and featured by one of the biggest television stations in the region.

Horton invited along for an 'all-access' look into how King-5 and produce their segments, and here is a photo gallery of how the day went. The highlight of the day was getting 'The Big Four' together. Last year it was 'The Big Three' of Jake Locker (Washington), Taylor Mays (USC) and Steve Schilling (Michigan). 'The Big Four' this year were all quarterbacks; Jake Gelakoska of Jackson (committed to Oregon State), Kellen Kiilsgaard of Auburn, Kellen Moore of Prosser and Jason Munns of Southridge (committed to BYU).
