On Tuesday morning, officials with the El Paso Sports Commission announced that the Blue-Grey All-Star Combine is returning to El Paso for the second straight year.
The Blue-Grey All-Star Combine will take place at Hanks High School’s Excalibur Stadium, located at 2001 Lee Trevino Drive, from 11:00am to 3:00pm on Saturday, March 7, 2020.
“The goal of every football player is to play in an NFL Venue, and players who play well at the All-American Combine will earn an invitation to the brand’s All-American Bowl at AT&T Stadium,” Combine officials shared.
To participate in the All-American Combine, individuals must first sign up for the workout online. Selected participants will receive an invite-only approval from the Blue-Grey Football Selection Committee.
Skills testing first takes place in the 40-yard dash, broad jump, bench press and shuttle. Individual drills follow with the former pros. The event continues with an extended one-one-one session.
Finally, a meet-and-greet with coaches, players, friends and families, ends the session.
Several NFL veterans will be on hand, including former Chiefs/Eagles/Saints/Redskins/49ers DB Mark McMillian, and former Seahawks/Browns/Packers QB Seneca Wallace. They will provide invaluable instruction to student-athletes (Class of 2021-2023) during each of the planned 3-to-4-hour workouts.
Following the workout, NFL Veteran Evaluations are submitted on each participant, names then entered in the brand’s database with stats posted on bluegreyfootball.com, where NCAA Division I, Div. II, III, NAIA and Junior College have access to the info.
