On March 15th, 2014, we took the show to the PG County Sports & Learning Complex for Spring Football Prospects from the District of Columbia, PG County, Montgomery County and the HC Stars.

Top HS coaches from all over the DMV were on hand to coach, scout, and evaluate over 140 elementary and middle school athletes.  It was truly a special day.  We saw some of the best athletes we have ever seen at the Grassroots combines. There were some amazing times recorded at all of the events that day.  We realized that we made a measuring mistake with our 40 yard dash distance and the last thing we want to be responsible for is putting out inaccurate times for our young people.

As exciting as it may seem to run a 40 time that most college players can't run, it does not do any of you athletes any good to have unrealistic speed expectations placed on you that are based on inaccruate measurements and it was confirmed that we were off appoximately .24 seconds on our times.  After researching the issue and having some of our athletes run the following week at Loudoun (by hand time and laser), it was confirmed that our hand times were off by .24 of a second.  We have some absolutely amazing athletes that can fly at the event and even the adjusted times were phenomenal for these kids.  We added .24 of a second to the best times that each athlete had and the times were exactly in the ranges that were expected for these age groups.  Also, keep in mind that laser times are typically .10 to .20 of a second slower than hand times due to human beings inability to react as quickly as laser systems.  All of us that understand this dynamic are aware of this.  When you look at the laser times recorded for Loudoun, expect those times to be a tad slower than the hand times from the other 3 events.

We need for you to understand the true barometer of speed for middle school kids.  Any time under 5.00 is very good for an 8th grader.  We have seen top athletes drop .10 of a second off of their 40 time for each year they are in high school.  A combination of growth, combined with hard work with weights and speed training can drop that amount of time each year and if you can run a 4.9 for example as an 8th grader, you will have a realistic shot at running a 4.8 as a 9th Grader, a 4.7 as a 10th Grader, a 4.6 as an 11th Grader, and a 4.5 when you are a senior if you commit to the work.  There are not many colleges that a skill player can't get into if they run a 4.5 in high school.  If you are running a 4.8 for example, there is a realistic chance that you could get to the 4.4 range as a senior in High School, which is world class speed.

Once you get to college, you will not be expected to continue to grow taller, which can effect your stride length and speed like it does in HS.  You can realistically expect to be able to drop up to .10 of a second between your Freshman and Senior year, based on strength training and speed training.  So if you can get down to 4.6 by your senior year in HS, you have a chance to get to 4.5 in college, which is NFL caliber speed for RB's, LB's, WR's, and DB's.  If you can get into the 4.4 range before leaving college, you have bonafide NFL speed.  Anything lower than a 4.4 is pure sickening!!!!

So understand that very few NFL players are running 4.4 or better, so don't think for a minute that there are 8th graders running that fast (LOL)!  It just does not happen.  Our best 40 times were adjusted by .24 of a second to account for the error and we are confident that these are the correct times.  If there are any errors in spelling, region, etc., please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will make the changes as soon as possible. If there is an N/A by your name for any column and you did test that column, email us with the correct information.  If you have an issue with any of the 40 times and don't want them reported because you don't believe they are accurate enough, we will remove them.  We are willing to remove any of your times if you don't want them reported to the masses.

Finally though, keep in mind that you guys are elementary school kids and middle school kids.  These are baramoters for you to match where you are right now with your peers.  This is not the end all be all.  These are not HS events that are going to preclude you from getting a college scholarship by any means.  Take them seriously, but don't take them that seriously.  If you performed very well, don't rest on  your laurels and assume you have made it.  People can and will catch you if you get too comfortable.  If you didn't perform well, don't beat yourself up.  Just go to work and get bigger, faster and stronger.  It is just that simple.

If you are looking for a training partner to improve on your speed, strength, agility, and positional skills, you couldn't find a better one than CDI Training.  They are the official training partner of the GYFL and they have everything that you need.  Click this link for more information: http://thegyfl.com/football/index.php/train/speed-strength-and-agility
