Springfield, Ore. -- For high school student-athletes in Oregon, it's been a long wait for sports to return. In March of 2020, OSAA announced a pause on all interscholastic athletic competition and those like Thurston's Dawson Muggy are just hoping for one last ride on the playing field.

"You know it's just been kind of tough," says Muggy. 

When he's not wearing a Thurston uniform, the senior is working out and playing offseason ball with MVP 7 on 7. 

"Still getting out on the field trying to get better. You just can't sit around and do nothing."

Over the summer MVP won their first national tournament beating some of the top 7 on 7 teams from football hotbeds like California, Texas and Washington. Muggy's success with MVP has led to opportunities for the senior, who is still hoping to see an uptick in his recruitment even potentially without an OSAA season. A chance for him to showcase himself will be in Dallas, Texas for Pylon 7 on 7's All-American showcase. 

"You know me and my family are really excited, it's a big deal."

The Defensive Back is one of just 48 players to be selected for the showcase as well as the All-American game itself. He's also the lone representative from Oregon.

"I've been preparing with MVP and Forever Strong, just training and trying to get better and get prepared for this combine so i can prepare at my best."

On Saturday, Muggy will go head to head with some of the country's best football players at AT&T Stadium. He says he hopes to show scouts and college coaches what he's made of. 

"If it was easy, i think everybody would do it," Muggy says. "I think I can live by that and truly believe in it."
