We wrapped up our Pro Day Prep Program last week and I could not be more pleased with how well my guys performed. Their work ethic and effort were tremendous and I enjoyed being able to spend 10-12 hours of every week with them.
On Wednesday, March 16th, Torrey Pierce (RB) and Zack DeGrange (S) participated in their Pro Day at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. Their results are as follows (pre-test numbers in parentheses):
Torrey ran 4.52 (4.70) in the 40, 4.22 (4.28) in the 20 yard shuttle, 6.87 (7.1) in the 3 cone, 34" on his vertical, 9'6 (9') on his broad jump, and knocked out 9 (5) reps on his 225 bench press test. Zack ran 4.51 (4.69) in the 40, 4.09 (4.31) in the 20 yard shuttle, 7.01 (7.3) in the 3 cone, 9'10 (9'5) on his broad jump, and 13 (9) reps at 225.
On Thursday, March 17th, Darryl Watson (WR-Nicholls St. University) participated in his Pro Day at the New Orleans Saints practice facility. His results are as follows (pre-test numbers in parentheses): 4.51 (4.72) in the 40, 4.20 (4.33) in the 20 yard shuttle, 7.09 (7.25) in the 3 cone, 33.5" on his vertical, 9'6 (8'8) on his broad jump and 7 (3) reps at 225.
Torrey, Zack, and Darryl all exceeded my expectations in all areas, but most of all in how they handled themselves through the whole process. They are high-character young men and I thoroughly enjoyed building relationships with them. Whether they play at the next level or not, they are going to be highly successful men and I am grateful to have spent this time with them.
