By Travis Wilson, for the WFCA

The Tenth Annual WFCA Combine was held over the weekend, and full results are now available. The Combine was split into five sessions, though all athletes were tested on the same events. All events were held at NX Level Fitness in Waukesha. A total of 505 athletes competed in the Combine.

The WFCA Combine was conducted by NX Level staff with many high school football coaches assisting, and sponsored by the WFCA, NX Level, Epoch Recruiting, and Special thank you to WFCA Combine Director Tony Biolo for organizing the event and compiling the results and Brad Arnett & crew at NX Level for administering the testing throughout the day.

More than 75 college coaches were on hand from at least 24 different schools, with several programs sending multiple coaches to evaluate potential prospects. While D1-FBS coaches were prohibited from attending by NCAA rules, eight D1-FCS coaches from five different schools were in attendance and closely monitoring the action. The full list of coaches in attendance is available below.

There were some blistering times posted in the 40-yard dash Saturday afternoon, which was done via hand-timing by the professionals from NX Level.

Burlington Class of 2024 wide receiver Tommy Teberg posted the fastest 40-yard dash time at the Combine, running it in 4.44 seconds. Watertown 2024 receiver Zach Scher and Homestead 2025 defensive back Sean O'Byrne shared the next fastest time in the 40 at 4.50 seconds.

The L-Drill was again a part of the Combine, with many college coaches paying close attention to the event, which is a great measure of body lean, hip flexibility, and change-of-direction skills. A standout in all of the events, the top time went to Port Washington's Ben Fritsch, a Class of 2024 receiver who was the East Central Conference Player of the Year after moving to quarterback part-way through the year, with a time of 6.81 seconds. 

Next up was West Bend East 2024 quarterback Owen Carlson with a time of 6.88 seconds, followed by a 6.93 second mark by Cashton 2024 linebacker Brett Hemmersbach. All told, five players posted times below seven seconds, with four more at exactly 7.00 seconds.

Short Shuttle

The short shuttle or pro agility is another outstanding change-of-direction test, with athletes starting from a stop, running five yards in one direction, ten yards the other direction, and five yards back to the center. College coaches lined up around the testing locations all day, as it is one of the most beneficial events for seeing how players move, bend, and control their bodies.

In the Shuttle event, the top time went to Oshkosh West 2025 quarterback Chase Brandl with a mark of 4.13 seconds. Just behind was previously mentioned Ben Fritsch of Port Washington at 4.18 seconds. Three players ran 4.20 seconds in the short shuttle: West Bend East's Owen Carlson, Waunakee 2024 wide receiver David Emerich, and Neenah 2025 defensive back Grant Dean.
