Harvard Hosts 2013 Football Pro Day

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Harvard hosted its annual football pro day at Harvard Stadium and the Palmer-Dixon Strength & Conditioning Center on March 14 with members of the Crimson football team and select players from other New England colleges participating. 

Nearly 20 NFL scouts and coaches observed the workouts, which included six members of the Harvard football class of 2013; Colton Chapple, John Collins, Jacob Dombrowski, Kyle Juszczyk, John Lyon and Treavor Scales. Each individual was put through the same battery of tests conducted at the NFL combine, including the 40-yard dash, bench press, 60-yard shuttle and positional drills.

"Our goal is just to PR on this day," commented James Frazier, director of strength & conditionain. "Whatever they do for their four years as a football player with us, their goal is just to beat those times. All in all I thought it was a good day."

Juszczyk, who competed at the Senior Bowl in January and was named to the Associated Press All-America first team, worked out as both a tight end and fullback. He has drawn interest from several NFL teams and will begin visiting individual organizations over the next month.

"I felt like the drills went really well. I kind of had some butterflys at first but after doing the vert and broad jump, kind of get some of that energy out, I felt great," Juszczyk stated. "I felt like I was moving well. I'm really, really pleased with today."
