This combine’s objective is to give all high school football players across the country a competitive, world-class platform to showcase their athleticism and skills to collegiate coaches.

The Mercyhealth Top Performers Combine provides an opportunity for players to obtain unbiased testing results from a world-renowned source—Zybek Sports. For the past nine years, Zybek has done the official timing for the NFL Combine.

Mercyhealth Top Performers Combine is not a combine where athletes just show up to display their athleticism in speed, agility and power. Although those characteristics are critically important to collegiate coaches, they are not the only qualities that are quantified when it comes to being recruited. Collegiate coaches also look for players who possess a great skill presence, which in turn will be a major focal point of the combine. This segment of the combine will enable athletes an opportunity to showcase their skills, techniques and fundamentals, while also having a opportunity to be coached by current and former pro players and highly qualified coaches.

Who will attend

Collegiate coaches from immediate and surrounding areas.

How players receive results

Each athlete receives official test results immediately following the combine. All testing data is sent to collegiate coaches from NCAA FCS, FBS, II, III, NAIA, Junior College and recruiting services. Players who wish not to publicly share data, will be asked to sign a nondisclosure agreement.
