“This is a great opportunity for our coaching staff to actually put their eyes on someone and evaluate fresh talent.” stated Hohensee. “Hopefully we’ll be able to find some players who can make an impact with our organization.” Players will be measured in the 40 yard dash, short shuttle and the broad jump. This will be followed by a series of drills and then ending with 1 on 1 competition.
