Dana Day Shows Well At Junior Combine

Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville junior wide receiver Dana Day attended the U. S. Army Junior Combine in San Antonio Thursday afternoon. Day, who had a fine season for the Tarblooders in 2009, was one of the top receivers in action at the Combine. Bill Greene caught up with Day to get his thoughts on his performance.

Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville junior wide receiver Dana Day has not been receiving much recruiting attention, but that might be changing after his performance today at the U. S. Army Junior Combine in San Antonio.

Day was timed electronically at 4.52 at the pre-combine testing, then went out and starred in the on-on-one drills. Before the completion of the event, people who hadn't heard of Dana Day, now knew his name.

"I think I did good, but I know I can play better," Day said. "I came down here to prove myself and I came to the facility hungry to prove I can play with the best. I just want college coaches to know I can play and I'm a good person. I'm an honor student and I carry a 3.5 GPA."

Day, who suffered a knee injury as a sophomore, said he is 100% healed and ready to prove himself as a college prospect.

"I tore my ACL as a sophomore, but I'm good to go now," he stressed. "I'm running indoor track and I gave up basketball to work out all winter. I was in the rotation all year at Glenville. I played wide receiver, defensive back and returned kicks. I know I will be more involved in the offense next year with Christian Bryant and Latwan Anderson leaving."

Day, 5-foot-7, 160-pounds, was one of several Glenville players that had impressive showings at the Junior Combine. Stay tuned as Scout.com brings more reports from San Antonio.
