Every week through football season, DawgNation writer Kipp Adams will reveal five things he learned while out on the road watching the best in the Southeast play football. Those nuggets could include recruiting gems, game observations and/or merely thoughts on sports in general.
On Saturday, I was at the Georgia Dome for the Corky Kell Classic.

- Star-struck: The ESPN 300 was well represented Saturday, with seven members on the field at the Georgia Dome. They did not disappoint either, as several of the top performances of the day came out of that group. Other top prospects were in attendance to watch the event, including ESPN 150 defensive lineman Kelsey Griffin (Hoschton, Ga./Mill Creek), ESPN 300 defensive end and Florida State commitment Davin Bellamy (Chamblee, Ga./Chamblee), four star defensive end and University of Florida commitment Antonio Riles (Lawrenceville, Ga./Archer) and 2014 University of Georgia commitments Demarre Kitt (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek) and Nick Glass (Atlanta/St. Pius X.). This year, the event added a fifth game to the slate, so I had a chance to watch 10 of the best programs in the state do battle for from 9 a.m. to midnight. I am still napping in an effort to recover from the football overload.
