COACH ME UP SPORTS PRESENTS THE 17 UNDERCLASSMEN SHOWCASE COMBINE TOUR. HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS FROM NORTH CAROLINA TO FLORIDA WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN AND SHOWCASE THEIR ATHLETIC AND POSITION TALENT IN FRONT OF A SHOWCASE PLATFORM OF SCOUTS AND RECRUITERS.
Here is a brief breakdown of the measurable drills that players will be tested on and engage in during competition.
The 40-yard dash which the focus is speed, explosion.
Laser times, as well as hand-held stopwatches, are utilized to record each individual’s run time. An explosive static start is the making of a great 40 time.
The bench press is a test of strength — 185 pounds, as many reps as the athlete can get. This test will focus on a player’s endurance. Anybody can do a max one time, but what the bench press test reveals is how often the athlete frequents the weight room IF he has begun strength and conditioning sessions.
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.
The broad jump also tests 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. The back of the heel is where the measurement is counted.
The 3 cone drill tests an athlete’s ability to change directions at a high speed. Three cones in an L-shape. The athlete will start 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.
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 also defined as a change of direction, 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.
The final portion of the Underclassmen Combine Exposure experience to maximize the evaluation aspect of the event allows for showcase of competitive talent. Quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, Tight ends, Linebackers, and Defensive Backs finish with a 7 on 7 competition.
Offensive and defensive linemen showcase their competitiveness during Pass Pro 1on1’s and then a Big Man Competition. The Big Man Competition will consist of several competitive drills where players compete individual and as a group.
These competitions will measure competitiveness, strength, stamina, and explosiveness.
