2019 Sharp Performance
High School Football Combine
After a brief stint in Wichita, the Salina Regional Sports Medicine Athletic Testing Combine by Sharp Performance is back in Salina and scheduled for Saturday, April 13, at the new Salina Fieldhouse at 140 N. 5th St. The free event is open to athletes from the classes of 2020 to 2023 to gain valuable combine experience at no cost. Registration will start at 8 a.m. with testing to begin at 10 a.m.
As many as 500 athletes from throughout Kansas could attend, making the combine again one of the largest athletic testing events in the state and the Midwest.
The combine will test athletes in the 40-yard dash, the 5-10-5 pro-agility drill, the vertical jump, the broad jump, the Gopher Sport Medicine Ball Toss and the bench press, along with accurate height and weight measurements. College recruiters will be able to use the data from these tests and measurements, coupled with a player’s film, to judge an athlete’s ability to play in college.
Regional and statewide sports media and recruiting reporters will be in attendance, including representatives from SportsinKansas, Kansas Pregame and others.
“We are proud to offer this free event in the heart of Kansas in the new and improved downtown Salina at the new Salina Fieldhouse,” Sharp Performance CEO Jake Sharp said. “This event is about more than just getting in front of college recruiters with verified results from the 40, pro agility and vertical jump. It’s also about setting a baseline for the summer program, getting experience on how to perform the various combine tests and compete with athletes from across the state in one centralized location.”
The combine will be conducted by professional athletic trainers including former University of Kansas and Salina Central running back Jake Sharp, former Shawnee Mission West and University of Wyoming wide receiver David Leonard, former Fort Hays State and Salina Central running back and track athlete Cale Sharp and other former standout high school and college athletes and coaches.
While the combine is free, pre-registration is required. The registration deadline is March 29.
