ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dallas Skyline quarterback DeVante Kincade has been labeled as an athlete by many analysts because of his dual-threat ability.

Kincade took a big step toward shedding that tag Saturday at the Elite 11 Regional Quarterback Camp at Cowboys Stadium. Kincade, who is 6-foot and 180 pounds, was named most valuable player at the camp and was the first player to receive an official invite to the national Elite 11 Camp, which is held in July in Redondo Beach, Calif.

"Devante was ready to go from the first snap," said Elite 11 coach Trent Dilfer. "He showed energy, life and excitement in every drill and in every snap. He earned it and showed everybody today that he's a special player."

Kincade, who has scholarship offers from Colorado, Notre Dame, Illinois and Kansas State, beat out five other quarterbacks in a final competition for MVP.

The other quarterbacks to make the final group were Joshua Dobbs from Alpharetta, Ga., Austin Allen of Fayetteville, Ark., Kenny Hill of Southlake (Texas) Carroll, Tyrone Swoopes of Whitewright, Texas, and Cooper Bateman of Salt Lake City (Utah) Cottonwood.
