Mayowa Owolabi, CCL National Conferences Director had this to say about the 6th Annual CCL College Combine: “We had a great time hosting the combine this year! We had 70 degree weather and sunshine on Saturday, so the kids were able to showcase their talents in front of the college coaches attending in beautiful conditions. In addition to the on field performances, we also had Next College Student Athlete (NCSA) on site providing a seminar and 1 on 1 meetings with players and parents throughout the weekend, to further assist with their individual recruitment processes. The level of play was high and the coaches really enjoyed themselves! We cannot wait to host this event again next seasonal year!”
