T The NFL Scouting Combine is a grueling weeklong event in which the nation's top college football players undergo a series of physical and mental tests in front of NFL coaches and scouts to demonstrate their ability to perform under intense scrutiny. It's a standout college prospect's one chance to make an impression on NFL teams—a sort of high-intensity, high-stakes job interview with, potentially, millions of dollars on the line. Everything in the athletes' lives has led them to this moment, and their futures can quite literally depend on how well they perform. The pressure to succeed is tremendous. The margin for error is nonexistent, and a tiny advantage—a half-inch increase in stride length, a minute shift in confidence—can be a colossal factor in an athlete's success. That's where Tony Villani's XPE Sports Academy and George Kousaleos's CORE Myofascial Therapy come in.
