SoCal All-Combine Team (Offense)

Congratulations to the SoCal All-Combine Team chosen from among 400+ participants. These are are the offensive picks. Honorees were chosen based on overall testing performance, not on their performance in one-on-ones or other drills. (PHOTO: Sequoias RB Seth Smith)

The combine was held under sunny skies with no wind in the beautiful stadium on May 12 at Citrus College. It was a great day, and our thanks go to the coaches who helped out as well as the prospects who came and worked so hard!

NOTE: Heights and weights were taken with shoes off. Forties and short shuttles were run on a SprintTurf field.
