Hurricanes Football hosting Spring Combine

May 20, 2014

Charlottetown, PE The Holland Hurricanes Football Club will host a prospects combine on Saturday, May 24 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the UPEI Turf Field.

Guest coaches will include Everett High School coach, Mike Milo from Everett, Mass., and St. Francis Xavier head coach Gary Waterman.  Participants should wear appropriate athletic gear, including cleats. Helmet and shoulder pads are not required. The combine will consist of the 40-yard sprint, short shuttle, broad jump, agility drills and position-specific drills.

There is no registration fee. The camp is open to current high school football players and any other eligible prospects. Returning players are also welcome to attend the session.

Representatives from Holland College will be available to meet with prospective students to discuss program choices and admission processes after the combine.

Mike Milo is considered one of the top high school line coaches in America. He has been an assistant under Coach John DiBiaso at Everett High School since 1992.  Over the last 22 years, Everett High football has achieved many accomplishments, including a 217-24 win-loss record (90 per cent), 19 Consecutive Greater Boston League titles, 14 State Super Bowl appearances and 10 Super Bowl victories.

A number of Everett High players have gone on to distinguish themselves at the college and professional levels, including running back Omar Easy, who played at Penn State before playing in the NFL with Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs. Dr. Easy is now Vice-Principal at Everett High. Recent Everett graduate John Montelus, the top-rated high school lineman in the country two years ago, is currently attending the University of Notre Dame. Coach Milo will be accompanied by several of his graduating seniors, who will be participating in the combine.

All participants are encouraged to complete an online recruiting profile prior to the camp. For more information about the Hurricanes, or to complete a recruiting profile, visit hcfootball.ca.
