Going to See the Queen

As the Shrine Bowl Combine tour hits the home stretch it will enter the Queen City Saturday where Butler High School hosts the fourth of five combines.

Registration for Saturday's combine begins at 10:30 a.m. for kickers, punters, and long snappers and 11:00 a.m. for position players. Special teamers begin drills at 11:00 a.m., while position players get going at 12:30 p.m.

Position players will have their height and weight measured and will be tested in the 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle, vertical jump, and bench press (repetitions of 185 pounds). They will also participate in position specific drills for evaluation purposes.

Participates receive the opportunity to earn a Shrine Bowl roster spot and impress collegiate coaching staffs in attendance.

Normally a hot spot for talent, this might be a down year for Charlotte. However, surrounding cities should pick up the slack such as Shelby (Brandon Spikes of Crest and UNC commit Tarvorris Jolly of Shelby) and Catawba (Matt Woodlief of Bandys). Still though, Ben Williams of Olympic and Cameron Henegan of Independence will represent the Queen City.

The Shrine Bowl Combine tour will conclude next Saturday in Jamestown (Ragsdale HS). A special invitation only practice will be held back in Charlotte with the likely date being May 28th.

The combine is open to any rising sophomore, junior or senior at the cost of $15.00. Shrine Bowl Combine Coordinator Jim Bob Bryant can be contacted at 252-717-8681 for any questions.
