Sharp Performance annual High School Football Combine set for April 29
The third annual Sharp Performance High School Football Combine is scheduled for Saturday, April 29, at Kansas Wesleyan University in Salina. The free event is open to current 8th-11th graders. Testing will start at 10:00 a.m. with team and individual awards to follow. Following conclusion of the combine, a paid skills session will provide athletes the opportunity to work on football specific skills with former Division I football standouts.
Last year's event welcomed over 350 high school football players from across the state of Kansas, including more than 30 high school seniors who, in early February, signed National Letters of Intent to play college football, and more than 100 players who earned postseason honors for their performance during the 2016 football season.
The free combine will provide athletes the opportunity to record an accurate third party measurement in the 40 yard dash, the pro agility drill, the vertical jump, standing broad jump, and bench press, along with accurate height and weight measurements, all key measurables college recruiters rely on to make better decisions about a high school player's ability to play at the next level.
"While our goal is to help kids get exposure to colleges who might want to offer them football scholarships, what this is really about is helping kids better understand the combine process, how to perform the tests under pressure, and to give them a good baseline measurement as they head into summer workouts. For anyone that wants to come out it's also an opportunity to watch some of the best football players in Kansas go through the same testing that professional football players do prior to each spring's draft," former KU and Salina Central standout running back and Sharp Performance CEO Jake Sharp said.
The combine tests will be conducted by professional athletic trainers, current and former coaches, and several former Division I football standouts, using the most modern timing and measurement technology available.
"We have sought out the leader in athlete testing in Zybek Sports to provide us with the most accurate data available," Sharp said. "Zybek records results for the largest and most prestigious combines in the United States and we are excited to partner with them."
While the combine is free, pre-registration is required. Registration deadline is March 20, 2017. Register online by visiting www.sharp-performance.com and clicking on Midwest High School Football Combine.
