Mildred rising junior Elijah Sanford has been selected to participate in the 2019 Blue-Grey All-American Super Combine this weekend in Dallas.

Sanford, a lineman for Mildred,  was selected to compete in the Regional Combine in Dallas in April and proved his worth to earn an invitation to the Super Combine this week.

Sanford was ecstatic when he received the letter recently inviting him to participate in the Blue-Grey All-American Super Combine, where if he performs well he can earn a spot in one of the four Blue-Grey National All-American Bowls at four NFL locations.

Last year at Mildred Sanford  had one tackle and one assisted tackle for the Eagles. He had four assisted tackles as a freshman at Mildred.
