The 2020 Appalachia Prep Combine will be the biggest in history since our conception back in 2018. This year we are proud to partner with Zybek Sports! Zybek is the gold standard of combine testing and analytics. You may be familiar with Zybek as they have conducted the NFL Combine for the past nine years. Each participant will receive their “Standardized Athlete Testing” results which will show how you stack up against current and former NFL players when they performed the same test as high school recruits. All results are 100% accurate! “It’s On You!”. We are also pleased to be sponsored by the world's number one sports retailer - Dick's Sporting Goods for the first year! The Blue-Grey All-American Bowl and Coca-Cola also returns as sponsors this year.

Recruits participating in the Appalachia Prep Combine – considered the premier event in the region, groom themselves before the college camp circuit and before next season with the industries best coaches! Our position coaches  have played and/or coached from the college ranks to the NFL! In addition, expert technique trainers will be on hand to get your footwork, stance, and hands right before you prepare to impress college coaches!

Our results and content are seen by hundreds of college coaches! Our goal is to help each of our alumni receive a scholarship to play football at the next level, hence, the reason we hit the road and stay in constant contact with coaches to get your information in the right hands. Players will record times in the following testing areas: 40-yard dash, Pro Agility Shuttle, L Drill, Power Pushup, Vertical Jump and Broad Jump. Top combine performers will receive awards in each position and get a free profile on our website. All participants will be ranked at the conclusion of the combine. 20 rising seniors will be invited to the 2021 Blue-Grey All-American Bowl!

The Appalachia Prep Combine was the first recruiting platform that understood the need to help kids in rural markets gain exposure in recruiting due to being overlooked at national showcases. We match up well known recruits from urban markets vs. the best unknown recruits from rural markets. This concept has attracted players and college coaches from across the country to southern, WV.

Due to the reduction of the participation limit in response to the COVID -19 Pandemic, we are no longer accepting applications for the 2020 APC. Visit our prospect form to be included in our free recruiting database.
