Before the inaugural event in 2017, Chief Marketing Officer for Caliber, Greg Clark, said the atmosphere would be very much like a full blown pep rally focused on encouraging and cheering on some of America’s heroes.
“We need to honor our military heroes and this is another way that we can do that. To show their athleticism and how they really can compete with the best of the best,” he said.
The participants will compete in physical drills just like NFL pro’s do during their combines, like the 40-yard dash, vertical jump and the broad jump.MORE NEWS: Garland Partners With NAACP To Host 33rd Annual MLK Jr. Day Parade
