HAYWARD, Calif. -- After one Elite 11 coach referred to Friday’s Northern California event as the most talented regional of the past four years, participants in Sunday's Nike Football Training Camp at Chabot College faced plenty of pressure to keep the region’s momentum rolling.

While it would prove impossible to live up to Friday’s showing -- or even last year’s remarkable output of nine invitations to The Opening -- this year’s edition of the Northern California NFTC did result in six Opening invitations, as well as a dominant performance from several ESPN 300 defensive tackles, an ESPN 300 wide receiver who found a connection with a future Notre Dame quarterback, and a tight end who could help shape the Pac-12 recruiting race -- all during an event that had a decidedly island vibe.
