Newberry athletes shine at Pro Day


Newberry athletes shine at Pro Day
Monday, March 29, 2010

NEWBERRY, S.C. - The Newberry College football team held its annual Pro Day on Monday in front of a large crowd of spectators. Multiple NFL teams were represented, with many athletes posting excellent numbers.

The highlight of the day was the performance of wide receiver Kelton Tindal in the 40-yard dash. The speedster was clocked by most scouts in the 4.35 second range, with all scouts clocking him under 4.40 seconds on his fastest run. While unofficial, a time under 4.40 seconds would have been the second fastest time recorded by a wide receiver and in the top five of all positions at the 2010 NFL Combine in Indianapolis.

Running back S.J. Worrell was stellar in the bench press, recording 26 repetitions of 225 lbs. That number tied for the highest by a running back at the NFL Combine with Fresno State's Lonyae Miller and Auburn's Ben Tate.

Due to NFL regulations, several out-of-state athletes who had been previously announced as working out at the event were unable to do so.
