Top NFL Scout Speaks!

If you are close to the NFL Scouting circles then you have heard this name CO Brocato, the longtime NFL scout with the Tennessee Titans.

CO is a legend in the scouting circles, and has been a traiblazer in the profession. CO created the L Cone drill as a test of multi directional change of direction.

I recently watched an interview with CO. What he said all of us, whether athletes at the high school or the college level should listen closely to and follow, as he certinly knows what he is talking about.

The main point I took away from this interview was when he was asked what is the most important trait a football prospect should have.

He said without hesitation "SPEED". He said that speed is the key factor. Also the athletes ability to change direction and football skills. This should tell you alot about where your training emphasis should lie.

Speed Kills as some say. Speed will help you make the next level.

If you want to add more "Speed" to your game you need to get my Speed Tools Speed Sled.

A heavy duty training sled, that you can put olympic plates on and do various drills to build your speed. Forward accelerations, backpedal pulls, crossover starts, no arms sprints, and upper body sled pulls are just some of the exercises you can do with this multifaceted piece of training equipment. All at a very reasonable price.

Believe me, CO Brocato has tested thousands of athletes trying to make the jump to the NFL. He knows his stuff. Speed is King.

Are you ready for Spring Football?

Here in Florida we are a month away from high school Spring football starting up. Recruiting for the 2008-09 year believe it or not has begun. So spring ball will be big for the to be seniors to show their stuff.

I have been hard at work with my guys down here preparing for spring ball. I have been using alot of my drills and exercises found in my Training for the NFL program (http://www.procombinetraining.com/Training_for_the_NFL.php).

The position specific drills in the program have been intense for the athletes as we are ramping up for May 1. These position movements are a sure fire way to get your anaerobic conditioning ready for practice.

Also, I have been using my Speed Tools ankle tubing, for a great hip series that will make you more explosive and have quicker lateral movement skills. If you have yet to get this inexpensive training device, you can right here (http://www.speedtoolsusa.com/pro-leg-toner.php)

I will post the ankle tubing hip series on my blog this week.

These drills will get you ready for Spring Football, so you are the fittest, fastest, and quickest athlete on the field.
