Bobcat Alums Impress At Annual Pro Day

Bobcat Alums Impress At Annual Pro Day

ATHENS, Ohio -- Scouts from 20 National Football League teams arrived in Athens to work out members of the Ohio football program as part of the team's annual Pro Day on Wednesday.

The workout was typical of past Pro Days as the teams took the players measurable - body measurements, heights weights, put the players through weight room exercises - bench press, vertical and broad jumps. The squad then went to Walter Field House for on the field drills.

They timed the 40-yard dash, 20 and 60-yard shuttle and the three-cone drill. Players then went through position-specific workouts.

The tests mirror those that that are used during the NFL combine.

Quotes from Quentin Poling

"I want to play for a team that wants me to play for them. Wherever that is that's fine, some guys say they don't want to play up north because they don't like the cold, I love snow. I could be down south, west, east I don't care, I just want to be with whoever wants me and help the team out however I can and have some fun."

Quotes from Troy Mangen

"I think I had a pretty good day, we will see what the numbers say but I feel like everything I was hoping to get towards I did so I am satisfied. I think that Ohio is headed in the right direction putting guys in the NFL I think that it has helped a lot in the future."
