Chiko takes on the Football BC Combine


Hi everyone!

I hope you didn’t miss me too much over the last several weeks because… I’m back at Football BC! And what better way to come back to the Football BC family than taking part in an event on Family Day?

As it turns out, my first assignment back with the team was the Family Day Combine out at the Richmond Oval, the biggest combine of the year with over 200 attendees. Players from all over the Lower Mainland were there to make a mark and be noticed for next year’s grade 8, U-16, and U-18 teams, and this year’s Senior Bowl camp.

To see what the players go through at the combine, I was asked to do some of the drills that the players take part in for their testing. Sounds easy, right? Turns out some of the tests were harder than I thought, ¬†especially the 40 yard dash (turns out that running a good 40 takes a lot of technique and not just speed!) Overall, I had a lot of fun watching and learning from the players and coaches at the Combine. Maybe next year, I’ll¬†be able to improve significantly on my 40 yard time. Of course, only time will tell!

How do you think I did? Check out the video below to see what the Combine was all about this past weekend!

To see the results, keep an eye out on the Football BC website and on our social media channels, as results will be up within the next week!
