Van Meter football vs The World

Driving questions

How do Van Meters finest compare to the rest of the country?

Comparing high school athletes to the pros.

What if we made a super athlete?

The best vertical was a 31 the best shuttle was 4.30 the best 20 was 2.73 and our heaviest participant was 230 pounds. if you combine all of these traits into one person they would roughly match NFL linebacker Rey Maualuga who had the same vertical roughly the same 20 yard dash and was actually slower than our fastest shuttle time however he weighs 20 pounds more than our heaviest tester.

*nfl combine does not test the power toss so it was not used

However he beat our furthest power toss his was 36 ours was 35.5. Xavier is currently ranked as the 22nd defensive end in the country.

*20 yard dash wasn't included because those aren't made public
