A number of National Football League and Canadian Football League teams were represented at Appalachian State University football’s annual Pro Day on Friday morning. Pro Day activities were held in both the Appalachian Athletics Center and the Sofield Family Indoor Practice Facility.

A total of nine former student-athletes worked out for pro scouts including five who played for Appalachian last fall – offensive linemen Will Corbin and Kendall Lamm, defensive lineman Deuce Robinson, defensive back Joel Rossand wide receiver Tacoi Sumler. Players from Johnson C. Smith, Mars Hill and Wofford also participated.

Lamm and Ross both had extremely impressive workouts as several scouts remarked on Lamm’s excellent footwork while Ross showed great hands in pass-catching drills.

Both players also turned in solid performances in a variety of speed and agility drills. Although official times were not kept both Ross and Sumler showed outstanding speed throughout the workouts.

In the weight room, Lamm recorded a 10-foot, one-inch broad jump, a number that was higher than any offensive lineman at this year’s NFL Combine. Ross bench-pressed 225 pounds, 17 times, which would have placed him in the top 10 among cornerbacks at this year’s combine.

Corbin bench-pressed 225 pounds 29 times, which would have put him among the top 10 among offensive lineman at the combine while Robinson hit 26 bench reps, a number that would have ranked among the top 15 of all defensive lineman at the combine.
