Football combine kicks off this weekend

High school football players from throughout Arizona will have multiple opportunities to show why they are worthy of playing at the next level when the National Underclassmen Combine hits Phoenix this week and Scottsdale in mid-March.

“We’ve really had a ton of great players from Arizona including two kids that played in our first ever All World Gridiron Classic in DJ Hubbard and Jacob Arzouman,” says David Schuman, NUC CEO & President. “The state has a lot of talent and the prospects of seeing an athlete who could star in the NFL one day is always exciting.”

The Phoenix combine kicks off Saturday, Feb. 5 at Apache Junction High School and Scottsdale’s event is set for March 13. Registration information is available at nationalunderclassmen.com.

All participants will participate in the 40-yard dash, broad jump, bench press, vertical leap and shuttle run. In addition to official combine testing, athletes partake in individual skill period which includes drills, 1-on-1’s and 3-on-3’s along with other position-oriented competitions.

Following the combine’s completion, a special guest speaker will talk to the athletes about recruiting, education and making the right choices.

“We’ve had some great athletes from Arizona in the past including nationally rated Todd Peat and Brett Hundley among others, so I’m excited to see what this year’s field has to offer,” says Schuman. “Every season we see more and more great players from all across the nation. Arizona now represents an emerging football hotbed that will continue to grow. The truth is, you never know where the next great football player will come from and Arizona has proven that in the last few years.”

Statistics from every participant will be sent to colleges at all three levels and various recruiting bureaus such as ArizonaVarsity.com, Rivals.com and ESPN.com will be on hand to scout athletes. Select top performers will have profiles created for them on Rivals.com along with a special write up on nationalunderclassmen.com’s brand new recruiting network.
