RAC to host mock NFL combine for students

Ryan Kostensky

The RAC will host their seventh annual CRI Combine Tuesday where Georgia Southern University students will participate in the same drills performed at the annual NFL Scouting Combine.

The NFL Scouting Combine is a series of drills that more than 300 prospects will participate in their quest to achieve placement in the NFL.

Tony Gregory, CRI fitness program director, has high hopes for the event, which will run from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

“My goal is to provide an opportunity for folks to come out and get moving and have fun, and really just give them a chance to go through some of the simulations, you know, similar to what the NFL players go through, but at the same time, it’s not going to be as intense,” Gregory said.

The combine will consist of events such as the vertical jump, broad jump, the pro-agility drill, the L-drill and the 40-yard dash, giving participants a feeling of what it’s like to compete in the NFL Combine.

The event is free and does not require registration. For more information click here.
