Gain Sports Bus Tour Sign up now
Creed Humphrey set the foundation for success with his participation on the inaugural 2014 GAIN Sports Bus Tour. At the time, the 6’3″ 260-lb sophomore-to-be did not necessarily pass the eye test of what he eventually developed into as one of the country’s highest regarded offensive lineman in the Class of 2017. However, it was evident from first sight at the first collegiate camp we attended on the 2014 tour at the University of Georgia watching Creed strike with his hands and be the aggressor combined with his demeanor the entire tour we knew Creed possessed qualities to develop into a good football player. From there, Creed returned to the 2015 GAIN Sports Bus Tour for a brief appearance and with our recommendation received an invitation to an Opening Regional the off-season entering his junior season. Creed’s work ethic and relentless play on the field led to his stardom and along with his emergence on the GAIN Sports Bus Tour and presence on our platform as an underclassmen, Creed earned the opportunity to compete at The Opening Finals and in the US Army All-American Game.
