MVP Performance Center to hold combine for high school football players

Former Oregon wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei and his team will be holding a combine to help local and regional high school football players get looks in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemi

As oregon and oregon state football players prepare to return to voluntary workouts...high school football players are still looking for ways to be noticed by colleges after a spring without visits or camps.

Enter one former oregon duck...who is lending a hand in a big way.

Kezi 9 sports director andrew haubner reports... lavasier tunei: with the quarantine and colleges not accepting any kids on any visits.

We're trying to give kids upper hands on the recruiting process.

Former oregon duck lavasier tuinei knows this area well...he played in two rose bowls and a national championship with oregon and was a coach at churchill high school.

But he found his calling with mvp 7on7 lavasier tunei: i always wanted to help out kids and when it comes to the training part it's needed in this community right here.

As a way to help those kids...mvp will be holding a combine on july 18th to give recruits a chance to be seen by college coaches...either on site or on video.

Players will run through the normal 40 yard dash and the like...but will split into individual position groups as well.

Lavasier tunei: o-line, d-line we have receivers,tight ends, quarterbacks and when we have the film crew there we're gonna try to capture every movement with these kids so coaches can see how well they can move.

And it's not just oregon kids.

Lavasier tunei: we got kids from idaho, montana, washington, all over california, we got kids from texas.

So it's really branching out to out of state.

The hope is giving local kids a shot to help everyone have a chance at the next level.

Lavasier tunei: any opportunity that these kids have to get ahead of the game when it comes to recruiting is pretty crucial so anything they can possible get involved in...this is great.

Take it from a guy with a little bit of experience in such matters.

In eugene...andrew haubner...kezi 9 sports.
