Toronto, ON - (March 7, 2009) - The first day of the 2009 Canadian Football League Evaluation Camp finished earlier this afternoon in Toronto. Fifty of Canada's top football prospects were run through a series of strength and flexibility tests in front of general managers, head coaches and scouts from all CFL teams.
Those tests included bench press reps, broad jump, vertical jump and flexibility. Prospects were also measured for height, weight, hand and arm.
Results are available at CFL.ca.
