Rogers to Compete in Underclassmen Combine
Wednesday, July 7, 2010 • Posted July 6, 2010

Tanner Rogers, junior at Blanco High School, will be competing in the Southwest Regional National Underclassmen Ultimate 100 camp on July 10th in Dallas, TX. The Ultimate 100 Camp is an event that invites the Top 200 Current Freshman and Top 200 Current Sophomore football players from all of the National Underclassmen Combine Events held in the spring. A total of 200 athletes from Texas, Nebraska, Kansas, Ohio, and Louisiana will compete in Dallas at the Southwest Ultimate 100 camp. From that camp the Top 100 Players will be ranked by position by region with those rankings being sent to every college in the USA. Athletes attending the combines participate in all scheduled events, including the 40-yard dash, shuttle run, vertical jump, broad jump, bench press tests, individual workout periods for each football position and one-on-one, three-on-three and seven-on-seven competitions. In addition, athletes get to work on their individual skills, learn what speed, quickness, and agility drills to do to perform better, and compete and work with the top freshman and sophomore players in the USA. The National Underclassmen Combine has given high school football prospects the opportunity to showcase their abilities and get early exposure with colleges from Division I to Division III. As part of a partnership with Rivals.com, the NUC showcases top freshmen, sophomores and juniors to get them the type of exposure they need to get recruited at the collegiate level.

Rogers received the invite for the Ultimate 100 camp, after his performance at the National Underclassmen Combine held in May in San Antonio. Rogers received numerous awards at the combine. He was named to the NUC All-Combine team, and was also named to the top performer’s list in the bench press test, pressing 155 lbs 23 times. Rogers was awarded with the combine’s Leadership MVP award, which included a grant worth $3000 with the National Collegiate Scouting Association. The Leadership Grant provides deserving student athletes with complimentary enrollment into the NCSA program. The NCSA was founded in 2000 by Chris Krause, a former full-ride scholarship football player at Vanderbilt University, with a two-pronged mission: To provide a means for college coaches at every level to find the recruits best suited for their programs and to educate high school student athletes and their families about the college recruiting process. Since 2000, NCSA has grown quickly, becoming the leading collegiate recruiting source for more than 35,000 college coaches across the country. NCSA's experienced scouting team helps student athletes gain acceptance to the collegiate program that best fits their needs.
