FBU selects Milliken for Top Gun Showcase


Jon Milliken, 16, of Berkey and a beginning junior at Evergreen High School, will participate in the 2015 Football University Top Gun High School Showcase at Dublin Jerome High School in Dublin, Ohio from July 16 to July 18.

Milliken was selected by NFL coaches and former players for this invitation-only event while participating at the Football University Camp in Dublin. He also participated in FBU’s Combine in Indiana earlier this summer.

FBU’s Top Gun event will feature intensive training with NFL and FBU professionals. The quality of athletes who have attended Top Gun speaks for itself, as in the past two NFL drafts, 24 Top Gun alumni were drafted, nine U.S. Army All-Americans attended last year’s Top Gun, and over 150 attendees were invited to the U.S. Army National Combine.

Milliken serves as a wide receiver and free safety for the Evergreen Vikings varsity team. His goals include playing his best for his team and to gain college football and academic scholarships to pursue a degree in biomedical engineering. He is the son of Kevin Milliken of Toledo and Myndi Milliken of Berkey.
