The Best of the Midwest Combine is literally right around the corner. Any of you interested in attending, here’s a link to the registration.
Meanwhile, the Bluegrass, which has sent literally hordes of talented high school gridiron stars compete in the prestigious event in years past, is set to do so again this year. Offseason trainers and Seven’s coaches around Kentucky are preparing their kids for the action, as are many high school football coaches.
The event is one-day and will be at the Grand Park Sports Campus. The campus is located at 19000 Grand Park Blvd., Westfield, IN 46074. The event will be held February 14, 2021.
The combine has been held since 2010 and has produced 774 D1 athletes, 104 All-Americans, multiple 1st-round NFL draft picks, Pro Bowlers, and Super Bowl Champions. It is open to current 9-11th graders.
The athletes will be competing and tested in 40-yard dash, broad-jump, L-Cone and Pro-agility shuttles. Attendees will compete against some of the best talent in the midwest.
Representatives from 24/7, Sports, Rivals, ESPN, XOS Digital together with coaches from NAIA, D2, D3, and JUCO will be there to take in your performance. Division-I, FBS and FCS coaches are prohibited from attending off campus camps. That being said, the results and rosters are made available to them privately and on the combine’s website not to mention their being heavily influenced by the media coverage from the outlets above italicized.
One Kentucky kid who benefitted tremendously from his past participation, and looking to headline the Kentucky kids competing next month is KPGFootball‘s top, in-state, ’22 linebacker, Tyler Morris. We were able to reach Morris for comment.
“Combines like this one are so key to getting your name and skill-sets out there to the next level coaches you are hoping to impress. These performances help distinguish you from the thousands of other prospects around the country at your position. Last year, I performed well, though I am never satisfied. I really want to excel this year even more than last.”
Morris went on to tell KPGFootball, “My recruitment’s sort of taken flight and I have fielded several D-1 offers since combine season last year. I owe much of this success to working with Corey Taylor Sports Performance (@Coach_CTaylor on Twitter) and my preparing to perform well at events like the Best of the Midwest. It is vitally important.”
