Philly High School Players Compete at SPARQ Combine at the NovaCare Complex
This Sunday, March 7th, High School football players from all over the area were tested in a combine by Nike SPARQ. We got to witness some pretty good performances and some that weren’t so good. The one’s that weren’t so good were not necessarily the inferior athletes, but they were never instructed on how to do actually do the testing.
At the combine, athletes were tested in the 40yard dash, the 20yard short shuttle, the vertical jump, and the medicine ball throw. The tests are then recorded to total up a score that is recorded for a “SPARQ Ranking”, comparing athletes. At events like these the top scorers tend to get exposure to certain Scouting websites. That is great, but usually it’s only a good thing for ONLY those who can test well.
The Philly Football Movement is looking to provide Philly area players a chance to be trained and improve in these specific events. We are looking to even the playing field when it comes to testing at these public combines, but we are not only about combine performances. We will teach you or your athlete football skills and if they have a talent already we will sharpen their skills.
Below is a few clips we took at the Nike SPARQ Combine at the NovaCare Complex. The Philly Football Movement would like to thank the High School players we were able to talk to at the Combine from Germantown, Overbrook, Northeast, West Catholic, Washington, Neumann Goretti, Roman Catholic North Pocono High School student-athletes to name a few. Please continue spreading the word on how we are going to revolutionize football and education to “Create Opportunities for Success.”
Look for us to be hosting an instructional combine in early June. We will host a camps and combines in late June and July. Learn how perform at these kind of events and leave with your head high knowing you did your best! Become a fan on Facebook- The Philly Football Movement to receive up to date information.
