KANEOHE - The 12th Annual PIAA Combine - the longest running combine in the Pacific - will be held Saturday, May 25th, at Castle High School starting at 7 am. With over 240 prospects from all over the islands already registered, it promises to be one of the PIAA's best attended and most talented combines ever.

"This is the most pre-registration we've ever had," Doris Sullivan, the Head of the Pacific Islands Athletic Alliance. "We'll have less than 10 available walk-ups."

The combine this year is sponsored by UnderArmour, Hawai'i Building & Construction Trades Council, First Hawaiian Bank and the Downtown Athletic Club. Matson, Subway, Sheraton Waikiki and the Sheraton Hawai'i Bowl are also participating sponsors.

Prospects will be tested in the 40-yard Dash, 20-yard pro agility (T-Test), L-Cone (3-Cone) Test, Vertical Jump, Standing Broad Jump, and Bench Press (reps at either 225 pounds or 185 pounds). They will also go through position drills and the always entertaining one-on-one reps at the end.

All the events will be hand timed and electronic timed. Participants will receive an UnderArmour compression shirt, combine shirt and sack pack, which includes water bottles and such. Subway will also be contributing lunch after the combine is complete.
