Battle of the Valley Combine & Lift-A-Thon: 03/04/10
Posted Sunday, February 21, 2010 by Brian Vegliando
The third-annual "Battle of the Valley Combine" is coming up! This year's event will take place at Valley Central High School from 4-6 PM on Thursday, March 4th. Student-Athletes will meet with the coaching staff after school that day downstairs in the teamroom at Wallkill, and travel to Valley Central high School together. They are responsible for getting their own rides home following the event from VCHS.
This year the event will double as our annal Lift-A-Thon Fundraiser. Players will be given a pledge sheet and are to get as many sponsors as possible to donate a sum based upon how many repetitions of Banech Press that the player can do at the combine. This has been an extremely productive fundraiser for us over the past three years, and by pairing it with the intensity and excitement of the combine we are looking to take it to the next level.
All Varsity-Eligible Football players, and some dedicated JV athletes who are also invited, will be participating in the event, which has become a staple in the off-season strength & conditioning program in Pather Country. The Combine has also added a great sense of community, competitiveness, and support to the neigborhood rivalry of Wallkill-Valley Central. We look forward to this great event, and hope to see as many parents, family, and supporters of Wallkill Football there!
Hail to Wallkill!
