We love small school football at NFL Draft Diamonds, and that is what will make the Hula Bowl in 2022 a fun experience. Every year tons of small schoolers rise up to get a shot at the next level. We at NFL Draft Diamonds are excited to work with the Hula Bowl in 2022, and we wanted to focus on 10 small schoolers (FCS, D2, D3) players we felt had a great week of football. Let’s break down some sleepers.

Ryan Hubley and Quinn Revere, WR’s, John’s Hopkins – These two division 3 wide receivers had a day this past weekend. Hubley is a 5’7 wideout from Malvern, Pennsylvania who had a great day finishing with 6 receptions for 151 and 2 touchdowns. Quinn on the other hand is a 6’0 wide receiver from McKinney, Texas who hauled in six receptions for 115 and a touchdown. Both receivers shined in week 2.

Drew Saxton, QB, Case-Western Reserve – The D3 gunslinger had himself a day. The 6’0 quarterback finished last week 23/34 for 433 yards passing and 5 touchdowns. The South Fayette, Pennsylvania prospect is looking great this year. He is definitely showcaing his ability to move the ball up and down the field.

Jamal Holloway, DE, Central State – The former UNLV transfer absolutely shocked his opponent last week. Holloway finished the game with 13 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles in the week 2 melee. Holloway is a 6’3, 250-pound pass rusher with great speed off the edge. He was wreaking havoc last week.

L’liott Curry, WR, Henderson State – I am a huge fan of this kid. Curry is a playmaker with great ball skills. He ended the day last week with 7 receptions and 127 yards receiving. He will be catching the eyes of NFL scouts. He has been extremely productive in his collegiate career.

Chris Terrell, DE, West Alabama – Terrell finished last week’s game with 5 tackles and two sacks. Terrell is a big boy. He stands at 6’3 and weighs 270 pounds. He was a first-team All-Southland player previously at Central Arkansas. He is continuing his rampage at West Alabama.

Devon Hunt, LB, Shaw University – Hunt had himself a day last week. 16 total tackles, with 1 tackle for loss and 2 pass breakups. Our staff sat down with the hard-hitting linebacker earlier this year. He is a playmaker that continues to step up for the Bear’s defense.

Andrew Kamienski, WR, North Central – The 6’0 wideout from Pingree Grove, Illinois had a great day. He finished the game with 6 receptions for 148 yards and 1 touchdown. He is a player that has been on our radar for years. He reminds me a lot of Mason Kinsey of the Tennessee Titans.

Damond Philyaw-Johnson, WR, Jacksonville State – Are you kidding me? This kid shocked Florida State and get this, we share the same name. Philyaw-Johnson hauled in the game-winner shocking FSU and McKenzie Milton. It was a huge play. The kid has potential based on his first name period!

Ryan Greenhagen, LB, Fordham – Yes, this is the kid that had a huge first week hitting 31 tackles, but did you know he followed it up with a 28 tackle performance? Yes, he has 59 tackles in two games. What is that? He is going to break the record if he stays on that pace. Kevin Talley has the lead with 195 tackles, that record could be broken soon.

Shedeur Sanders, QB, Jackson State – I know he is only a Freshman but sometimes you have to call out a ballplayer when you see one. He went 30-40 completing 75 percent of his passes for 362 yards and 3 touchdowns. Deion Sanders’ baby boy is a dog, and one you better keep an eye on.
