TYLER — The fourth annual ETSN.fm + APEC football recruiting combine, powered by Azalea Orthopedics, was a huge success.

ETSN.fm and APEC welcomed close to 100 of East Texas’ best football players in the 2017 and 2018 classes to Tyler for the event, which had a total attendance of about 500 people.

Testing results from Sunday’s combine are below, but here are explanations for each combine test if you need them.

  • 40-yard dash — standard measure of long or “top-end” speed; the included 20- and 10-yard speeds show fast an athlete starts his 40
  • Bench press — denotes upper-body strength, which is important when assessing an athlete’s total upper-body strength potential
  • Vertical jump — measure of vertical power (more power = faster at shorter distances)
  • Broad jump — growing standard for explosion athletes
  • Pro agility — standard for lateral change of direction
  • Keiser squat — combines low-impact technology with ability to move heavy weight safely at high speeds; issues power output number (in wattage) based on amount of weight used and the speed in which it was lifted, making the target a power assessment instead of simply a strength assessment
