Make your debut at The Ralph

Any high school football player with aspirations to play at the college level, take a knee and listen up.

College coaches want to get a look at you at the Football Recruiting Combine on Saturday at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park. The junior combine is open to all football players across Western New York who will be seniors in the fall. This seventh annual event is sponsored by the Western New York Amateur Football Alliance and Section VI Football Federation.

Local high school coaches will put athletes through position-specific drills so college coaches who are there can evaluate quickness, athleticism, explosiveness and footwork.

Players can register through their coaches. Sign-in at The Ralph is at 6 p.m., a warm-up is at 6:15 followed by the evaluation period at 6:30.

The junior combine will be a drill-based event where athletes will be grouped according to their position. The college coaches will evaluate the athletes on the field during the drills and instruction. There will be no contact drills.

Last year's combine drew 235 football players and 20 NCAA Division II and III coaches.
