Austin Massey, junior QB/LB at Cleveland High School, has received invitations to participate in the Offense-Defense Bowl in Orlando, the NUC All American Performance and Competition Week in Myrtle Beach, and for the second year in a row, the U.S. Army National Combine in San Antonio at the Alamodome. 

Massey has chosen to participate in  the Army National Combine, which will be  held on Jan. 3.  He will also attend the US Army All American bowl on Jan. 4. 

Five hundred of the nation’s top high school football underclassmen are invited to San Antonio this January for the U.S. Army National Combine, presented by SKLZ. The event focuses on measuring speed, strength, quickness, and football skill, while also providing educational seminars touching on the recruiting process, speed and strength improvement, and leadership.  Held annually in association with the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, the U.S. Army National Combine is the first opportunity for the nation’s top underclassmen to demonstrate their physical talent and compete against one another before top scouting organizations, as well as the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee.

Assisted by cadets from the U.S. Army ROTC, the U.S. Army National Combine is specifically designed to highlight the football abilities and talents of today’s rising underclassmen and tomorrow’s high school, college, and NFL stars. U.S. Army National Combine alumni include Jamaal Charles (Kansas City Chiefs), Percy Harvin (Seattle Seahawks), LeSean McCoy (Philadelphia Eagles), DeMarco Murray (Dallas Cowboys), Patrick Peterson (Arizona Cardinals) and Donte Whitner (San Francisco 49ers).
