- Our Athletes
The purpose of our Football Combine Training is to prepare High School football players for the up and coming combines that begin early spring.Our G.O.A.L. is to strengthen your movement patterns and correct technique that will allow you to maximize power output, force and speed.
We will provide combine testing so that athlete’s will know what to expect as well as track their progress.
Training begins Sat. Jan.7th 9:00am-10:00am and will be held every Saturday.
1. 40-Yard Dash
The 40-yard dash is the marquee event at the combine. It’s all about speed, explosion!. These athletes are timed at 10, 20 and 40-yard intervals. What the scouts are looking for is an explosion to acceleration from a static or stand still start.
2. Shuttle Run
The short shuttle is the first of the cone drills. It is known as the 5-10-5. What it tests is the athlete’s lateral quickness and explosion in short areas. The athlete starts in the three-point stance, explodes out 5 yards to his right, touches the line, goes back 10 yards to his left, left hand touches the line, pivot, and he turns 5 more yards and finishes
3. Cone L Drill
The 3 cone drill tests an athlete’s ability to change directions at a high speed. Three cones in an L-shape. The athlete starts from the starting line, goes 5 yards to the first cone and back. Then, he turns, runs around the second cone, runs a weave around the third cone, which is the high point of the L, changes directions, comes back around that second cone and finishes.
4. Broad Jump
The broad jump i is testing an athlete’s lower-body explosion and lower-body strength. The athlete starts out with a stance balanced and then he explodes out as far as he can. It tests explosion and balance, because he has to land without moving or( falling back or forward or taking a step)
5. Vertical Jump
The vertical jump is all about lower-body explosion and power. The athlete stands flat-footed and they measure his reach. It is important to accurately measure the reach, because the differential between the reach and the flag the athlete touches is his vertical jump measurement.
6. 225 LBS Bench Press
The bench press is a test of strength — 225 LBS, as many reps as the athlete can get. What the scouts are also looking for is endurance. Anybody can do a max one time, but what the bench press tells the scouts is how often the athlete frequented his weight room for the last few seasons
