Body Measurements

* Height and weight measurements determine a player's size. Height is measured to 1/8th of an inch accuracy.

* Weight is measured to the nearest pound.


* The body portrait provides a visual image of a player's body type and build. Players are photographed from the front wearing shorts only.


* Spread hand is measured from tip of thumb to tip of pinky.


* Extended arm is measured from shoulder blade to tip of middle finger.


Physical Tests (40 & SS Filmed)

* The 40 yard dash is a measure of straight ahead speed. Each player runs twice. Two times are recorded for each run. The best time is used for scoring purposes. Timing is done by Brower Training System.

* The 20 yard short shuttle is a measure of quickness. Each player is timed twice, once to the left and once to the right. Both times are recorded. The best time is scored.

* The vertical jump is a measure of lower body strength. The test is conducted using the Vertec measuring device. Each player jumps twice. The highest jump is scored.

The Power Ball Toss is a test of upper body, core strength, and a display of explosive power. (Once again, the key phrase being explosive power.) Some of the main muscle groups working in this exercise are the shoulders, upper back, triceps, abs and erectors hips. While these are the main muscle groups you’ll be working, in order to maximize the toss your entire upper body must be strong. Your core must be solid as well.


The athlete starts with one hand down on the ground and runs to the
middle cone and touches it. The athlete then reverses direction back
to the starting cone and touches it. The athlete reverses direction
again but this time runs around the outside of the middle cone on the
way to the far cone running around it in figure eight fashion on his
way back around the outside of the middle cone and finally finishing
back at the starting cone. The total distance traveled is about 30
yards. Athletes are timed for this whole procedure.
