To say that the 2020 Jenkins Elite Camp was a hit would be an understatement. There was no shortage of talent that came from all over the country to sharpen their skills and compete against one another. Below is a list of wide receivers and tight ends who showed excellent promise during the camp.
Jonathan Andino – Mountain Range High School, CO – 2023
At 5-foot-5, it’s easy to overlook a kid like Andino when he’s standing around players who are twice his height, but he is impossible to miss while on the field. Each drill he completed was done with intense focus and every rep was taken with the purpose of getting better. Once it came time for 1-on-1’s, Andino showed his valuable skill set as a slot receiver with crisp releases, separation skills, and reliable hands.
Caden Lettis – Erie High School, CO – 2023
Lettis is a 6-foot-1 and 160lbs receiver who possesses the potential of becoming a dangerous weapon for the Tigers. He showed great speed which gives him the ability to stretch the field with hands that maximizes his catch radius.

Sam Jacobs – ThunderRidge High School, CO – 2021
At 6-foot-2, Jacobs used his height and length well in competitive drills and showed good speed and hands. This is a guy who missed his junior season because of a dislocated patella and his eagerness to return to action showed at camp. In 1-on-1 drills, Jacobs stood out with his desire to win, as well as his willingness to fight for every ball and finish plays against some tough competition.
Other top standout wide receivers are:
Sam Schraeder – Columbine High School, CO – 2023
Ramsey Stark – Air Academy, CO – 2023
Matthew Dozier – Idaho – 2023
Riley Butcher – Glencoe-Silver Lake High School, MN – 2022
The 6-foot-2, 220lbs tight end had a very impressive camp appearance. Butcher has great size and a great assortment of skills that resulted in him being one of the top standout tight ends at the camp.
Koye Gilbert – Encampment High School, WY – 2022
Gilbert is a 6-foot-3, 195lbs target with good hands and great speed. His size, strength, and athleticism make him the perfect target for quarterbacks.
Dyse Shepard – Thunder Basin High School, WY – 2021
The first thing that sticks out about Shepard is his size. The 6-foot-4, 230lbs tight end is as close to an automatic completion that a quarterback can get. His size and catching ability makes him a nightmare to cover. Expect big things from big Shepard!
