Tom Brady’s NFL Combine Lowlights

February 13th, 2017 · No Comments · Agility, Football (Gridiron), Speed

Tom Brady, one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks ever, has done some great things in his career, but his performances at the 2000 pre-draft combine is not one of them. His poor effort affected his chances. He was picked 199 overall in the draft, and he was the 7th quarterback to be picked. The NFL won’t let me show the video of his performance, but here is someone else trying to match his scores.

His results at the combine:

40 Yard Dash: 5.28s
20 Yard Dash: 2.94s
10 Yard Dash: 1.70s
Bench Press: –
Vertical Leap: 24.5 inches
Broad Jump: 99 inches
20 Yd Shuttle: 4.38s
Three Cone Drill: 7.20s
60 Yd Shuttle: –
Wonderlic: 33

Test Your Hearing

June 15th, 2016 · No Comments · Health, Testing

You might not think a hearing test is important for sports, but it must play a part in player’s reactions on the filed in response to a stimuli. I did not realize that there is a such a drop off with age, fortunately the ref’s whistle is still in the audible range for most people. This video from my favorite science channel also explains a little about why it happens.

New Balance Test for NHL Combine – Y Balance

June 7th, 2015 · No Comments · Balance, Ice Hockey

A new balance test was added to the NHL Combine in 2015, called the Y Balance Test.  This test is a dynamic test performed in a single-leg stance that requires strength, flexibility, core control and proprioception. This is the latest in a series of balance and core stability type tests that they have trialed over the years. It looks like a pretty complex test to perform, but seems a good objective measure of balance. Previously they have used a balance board, single-leg squats and a Hex Agility test (like the like the hexagon test). See more about the Y Balance Test.
