A pair of Hilltopper football players will take part in today’s combine in Rio Rancho.
Los Alamos quarterback Brice Van Etten and linebacker Peter Brewer are both scheduled to compete in the NMPreps.com Elite Combine. The combine, hosted by the popular high school sports website, is scheduled from 8 a.m.-3 p.m.
Van Etten and Brewer are among more than 200 players from around the state that will be in today’s combine.
“The 2013 event will be the biggest combine event thus far to showcase the athletic talent of New Mexico high school football players,” NMPreps.com publisher Kyle Henderson said.
Each athlete will be tested in four core events: bench press, 40-yard dash, vertical jump and 20-yard shuttle run.
This will be the sixth New Mexico combine hosted by NMPreps.
Along with Brewer, who recently took part in an elite linebackers camp, and Van Etten, several players from nearby town like Santa Fe, Taos and Pojoaque, will participate in the event.
The 2013 football season for the Hilltoppers is scheduled to open Aug. 30. Los Alamos will travel to Pojoaque for its opener.
