It was a cold and frigid Thursday with both teams cutting down the practice time, yet each side went through some of the final details as they prepared for Saturday's U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio...

East

The weather forced the East practice to be delayed by an hour. When practice did start it was ridiculously cold and windy. You could see that the kids wanted no part of being out on the field and the practice showed that. The East basically worked on special teams and worked on their run game for the most. Marcus Lattimore was back to practice and he showed flashes of what makes him such a special player.

Michigan commit Cullen Christian had his best practice. He had two very noticeable plays one when he leaped up and batted a ball away from Christian Green. The second play Christian came up and pressed Kyle Prater and put the nation's No. 2 wide receiver on the ground. Defensively, Chance Carter came back to practice on Thursday. Brandon Willis had his second straight impressive practice session. Penn State bound linebacker Mike Hull continued to abuse just about anyone who ran a ball between the tackles. Hull also made an impressive pass deflection in coverage. West

Seantrel Henderson, the nation's premier prospect, was his usual dominant self, protecting the blind side of the West's quarterbacks. A couple of times, he just flat pancaked the defensive end.

Jake Heaps again was the most consistent of all the passers, utilizing all of them in the offense.

Malcolm Jones and Lache Seastrunk both had some good moments running the ball and Dillon Baxter, who ran the Wildcat for Mission Bay HS this fall, also saw plenty of plays out of the West's version of the Wildcat.

Defensively, Cassius Marsh and Sione Potoae both excelled, as did Owamagbe Odighizuwa. Ahmad Dixon had a nice interception on the day.

There were a lot of bored players, trying to stay warm. Trovon Reed, Henderson and Baxter all did their part by each doing their own version of the Riverdance.

Henderson was named the MVP on the day. "It feels good. Today, I just brought it like I usually do. It feels good to be the MVP of Scout and I am glad that you recognized me as that," said Henderson.
