TYLER -- The first-ever ETSN.fm football recruiting combine hosted by Accelerate Performance Enhancement Center was a huge success.

ETSN.fm and APEC welcomed 100 of East Texas' best football players in the 2014 and 2015 classes to Tyler for the event, which had a total attendance of about 400 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
  • Ladder -- encompasses footwork, control, brain-to-foot communication, and reaction
  • Medball -- shows upper-body explosion and reaction speed (more speed = harder punch)
  • 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

 

NOTE: All height and weight measurements were made in shoes. The 40-yard, 20-yard, and 10-yard times were conducted by laser-timing.
