More than 150 students ran, jumped and lifted Saturday as part of the Fifth Annual Smith-Cotton All Sports Combine, held in the S-C High gymnasium.
After the athletes completed testing in the 40-yard dash, sled push, bench press and other drills, new S-C head football coach Ryan Boyer introduced Jody Ford, head football coach at Central Methodist University in Fayette. Ford was defensive coordinator at CMU when Boyer played for the Eagles. Ford encouraged the students to follow their coaches’ guidance and avoid surrounding themselves with negative people.
Results from the combine are sent to coaches. Many students return each year and their results can be compared year to year.
