High school combine to be hosted at Ironton

Jun. 03, 2013 @ 11:50 PM

IRONTON -- Tri-State Rehab Services will feature some former college players June 22 in a high school football combine at Ironton High School.

Guest speaker Roman Fry played for the Ironton Fighting Tigers and the Clemson Tigers. Fry was an All-Atlantic Coast Conference offensive lineman and a preseason All-America selection before a knee injury ended his senior season prematurely.

Fry will be one of several former college football players who will help players at their respective positions.

Also scheduled to assist the combine are former Ohio State running back Jermon Jackson and defensive back Marcus Williams, former Marshall quarterback Mark Lutz, former Furman fullback Heath Brownstead, former Youngstown State offensive lineman Andy Colegrove, former Tiffin nose guard and All-American shot putter John Paul Pemberton, and former Morehead State quarterback and punter Lou Mains.

The combine begins at 9 a.m. and includes lunch and a dry fit T-shirt.

Players will undergo tests and drills used at NFL combines. Tests and drills include measurements, 40-yard dash, bench press, vertical jump, broad jump, flexibility test, 3-cone drill and L-drill.

Awards will be given in each division based on scoring from the tests and drills.

The combine will use a special scoring formula that will allow linemen to compete on an even basis with smaller players such as running backs, defensive backs and receivers.

Deadline for registration is Friday, June 14. The fee is $50. Checks should be made payable to Tri-State Rehab Services and mailed to 711 South Third Street, Ironton, OH 45638. Registration forms are available at Tri-State Rehab.
