Martinez & Su'a Filo named to Army All-American All-Combine Team

Two Utah football players were named to the Army All-American All-Combine Team this week.

Cottonwood junior John Martinez and Timpview junior Xavier Su'a Filo were both named to the team as offensive linemen.

"The offensive line and defensive lines were the headliners in the combine, and this group stacks up there with the best of the best in the 2009 class," said the story on the honors. "Martinez is already widely thought of as one of the nation's best, and his leverage and lower body strength are something else ... Su'a Filo and Washington also established themselves as top-level prospects at the combine."

Martinez and Su'a Filo were among 500 football players competing at the invitation-only event that preceded the Army All-American game on Saturday.

"Utah has some great talent that could go play anywhere," said Cottonwood coach Cecil Thomas, who attended the coach's clinic as well. "These two guys, and then the three kids who played in the game, they definitely proved they belong on that type of stage."

Cottonwood's Lynn Katoa and Bingham's Austin Holt and Justin Sorensen played on the West team in the game.
