DENVER — With the 2020-21 high school football calendar being altered by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Denver Broncos and the Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) have launched the Denver Broncos High School Virtual Combine, an online program designed to assist Colorado student athletes with aspirations of playing college football.

In partnership with GMTM, an athlete exposure platform, the all-virtual combine provides student athletes the opportunity to create a player profile, upload highlights and statistics and display individual skills and talents while building an online recruiting brand platform.

Participation in the program is free, and prospective athletes are able to connect with collegiate recruiters — Division I FBS through Division III — and participate in 11 pre-set combine tests to showcase their abilities through athletic, football and character challenges.

In addition, the combine features footage of Denver Broncos NFL Combine performances and video presentations from Broncos Director of Team Nutrition Bryan Snyder, Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Loren Landow and members of the football operations staff. The 11 pre-set combine tests include:

  • Athletic highlight challenge
  • Football highlight challenge
  • 40-yard dash
  • 3 cone drill
  • 20-yard shuttle
  • Broad jump
  • Bench press or pushups
  • Your position, your drill demonstration
  • Character challenge – What does character mean to you?
  • Character challenge – What does football mean to you?
  • Nutrition challenge – How do you fuel your workouts?

High school students of all ages are eligible to participate, and submissions for combine-specific elements will remain open for an eight-week period.
