With the fourth annual ETSN.fm + APEC Football Recruiting Combine, powered by Azalea Orthopedics, on tap for next month, APEC training facility in Tyler is hosting a free 40-yard dash clinic for combine invitees on Sunday, April 24.

The event is scheduled for 3-5 p.m. at APEC (1543 E. Grande Blvd., Tyler, TX, 75703), and is open only to those invited to the May 22 combine.

The clinic is designed to give athletes a leg up on the competition not only locally but nationally. The staff at APEC wants to ensure that all combine participants have the best experience possible and put up the best 40 times possible.

Athletes will be schooled on start mechanics (how to get out), acceleration mechanics (how to build speed), continued acceleration mechanics (how to reach full speed), and top-end mechanics (how to finish).

Combine invitees are asked to RSVP by Wednesday, April 20, to APEC facility director Kye Heck, who can be reached via email at kye@apecgo.com.
