Football: A high school version of pro day
College football programs have pro days, inviting NFL teams to come out and see their top seniors. Well, now high school teams are starting their own version of a pro day for college coaches.
Corona Santiago and Coach Jeff Steinberg is holding its version of a pro day on May 13 at 4 p.m., inviting college recruiters to show up and watch his players. He'll also have a table filled with highlight videos, transcripts and player profiles for each coach.
"It's a structured football practice, but we're going to do things they want to see," Steinberg said.
There will be specific drills to show off players, plus seven-on-seven competitions.
If this is successful, watch up for other schools to follow. Imagine how many college coaches might want to show up for a pro day at Westlake Village Oaks Christian or Santa Ana Mater Dei.
