What happens at The Treece Advantage Football Combines?
Athletes will arrive at The Treece Advantage Football Combine and check in. They will receive their camp shirt, and have their photo taken before heading to the field to stretch. The athletes will then be led through a dynamic warm-up, and will do a few short position-specific drills (QB’s, RB’s, WR/TE’s, OL’s, DL’s, LB’s and DB’s) with staff members to get acclimated to coaches and field conditions. Next, the athletes will be broken up into groups based on their position and rotate at combine stations to be measured. There will be a break for lunch which will be provided by The Treece Advantage. After lunch, athletes will be led through another dynamic warm-up, with a few short position-specific drills before beginning one-on-ones. The one-on-ones are the main event of the camp where WR’s go against DB’s, RB’s go against LB’s and OL’s will battle DL’s in a ‘big-man’ challenge. QB’s will alternate throwing to WR’s and RB’s at different times with various routes.

Would a poor time performance during the combine hurt my ability to be recruited?
Not every athlete can be listed on some national top 100 website. Besides that, those top lists only make up a very small percentage of total athletes and are compiled through self-promotion, and submission of a player application forms. Athletes and parents often have high expectations on results and need to understand these metrics are used as a benchmark giving the athlete a comparison to other athletes. This metric will also give athletes a baseline to define a goal to work against to improve as they progress throughout their high school career.
What if I think I made too many mistakes in my skills video, will it hurt being recruited?
No, because not every athlete is perfect and can perform mistake free. College coaches are trained to see good technique even through a miss step or lapse in technique. Having a video true that includes a few athletic mistakes allows college coaches to more effectively see an athlete’s true athletic potential. College coaches do not want to see another perfect highlight reel to the beat of the athlete’s favorite track.
