The BIG SHOW Combine and Showcase comes to Redskins Park in Ashburn
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
I’m proud to announce a new recruit757 partnership with the Washington Redskins and Sparta Science!
We’re gathering the top 100 high school football athletes from across the state of Virginia and giving them the VIP experience at our exclusive combine and showcase.
Sparta will give our athletes a unique assessment on their physical skills, the athletes will compete against the best of the best from around the state, and recruit757 will report the results to college football programs that recruit the region.
The Redskins provide their top notch facilities and an experience that no one else can match. There may event be a few VIPs from the Redskins that decide to get in on the event. The Redskins Broadcast Network will film the event.
Invitations are being sent to high school coaches and athletes now.
First, no one has ever assembled all of the best college prospects from around the state in one place purely for the opportunity to have them compete against each other.
Sure, one-day camps at Virginia and Virginia Tech draw the best of the best. But those camps run several times in June and July and won’t have all of the best there on one day. Nike, Under Armour and Adidas put on invite only camps, but they draw from across the region, so you’ll see players from other states along with a hand picked group of athletes from Virginia.
At this event, we’re purely focused on Virginia, just like recruit757, recruit804 and recruitNoVA does. Our recruit757 scouting service covers football athletes from around the state of Virginia. We scour the talent pool state-wide so that the college coaches who recruit here can find talent easily.
This is also not just any old combine.
With Sparta Science, athletes will be tested with methods that Sparta uses with dozens of college football programs and with the Redskins. A Sparta test includes balance, lower body strength, upper body strength, not only for measurement but also for injury prevention. Athletes will come away from this event with combine scores and a strength assessment that matches what the Redskins receive in order to keep them on the field and performing at the highest level.
We realize that inviting 100 athletes leaves a lot of deserving football players out. That’s why we still have the option of our Clash of the Titans Showcase that takes place on April 14 at Highland Springs High School. That’s also an opportunity to compete, grow and develop. MORE INFO
recruit757 is here to promote high school and college football, but our most important mission is helping young men realize their goals. College football at any level can be a gateway to a prosperous adulthood. We’re here to see young athletes become productive and well rounded men that can lead our communities in the future. We want athletes to succeed not only in athletics, but also in life.
