Browns to host prep showcase

CLEVELAND — On Saturday, March 12th, high school football players have the opportunity to showcase their skills in front of college football coaches and scouts from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Michigan, and Kentucky.

Due to the team’s renovations to the training facility in Berea, the annual High School Showcase will be held at the Paul L. David Athletic Training Center located at Massillon Washington High School in Massillon.

The Cleveland Browns High School Showcase is designed for high school football players who hope to continue their playing career at the collegiate level.

The event is broken down into two sessions; the (i) morning session will feature skilled players (quarterback, running back, wide receiver, tight end, defensive back and linebacker), while the (ii) afternoon session will feature offensive and defensive lineman. Both sessions will undergo standard “combine” style testing (Skilled players: 40-yard dash, broad jump, vertical jump, shuttle run; Linemen: 20-yard dash, broad jump, vertical jump, shuttle run and bench press) as well as position-specific drills, including passing, route-running, lineman work, agility bags and more.

Over 100 Division II, III and NAIA colleges have been invited to attend and observe this year’s showcase.
