Every week I am hit up by 10 to 15 players asking me how they can get to the NFL. There are some really good football players. We try to explain to them that they need to get some current film before an NFL team will consider you.
Many players do not know or understand how scouting works in the NFL and the CFL. When you are in college you have film, but your film is evaluated by college scouts. Once you are out of school those scouts no longer focus on you. They then focus on the next seniors in college. You then are moved on to the NFL’s PRO SIDE. What does that mean? Well let me explain it.
When you are no longer a college football player and now being considered by NFL’s pro scouts, you have to have Pro film. What is pro film? That is a good question. It can be IFL, AFL, CFL, GFL, Spring League, Hub Football I mean anything where you are playing meaningful reps, and staying in pro ready shape. The problem is some of those leagues are harder to get you into the NFL because there are not many of them that are getting the looks from the NFL. The Spring League has had some success at putting players in the NFL. The thing with the CFL is you are usually locked into a contract so it is harder to get out.
When HUB Football came along, I was not sure how it would work, but let me say this. THEY HAVE MADE ME A BELIEVER! In the last week alone, over 10 players have received a workout and five were signed.
HUB football has helped quite a bit of football players. They have had 150 players get a workout or tryout with a professional team. They have also had 88 players signed. That is super impressive, especially when you consider what the league is doing.
I wanted to give HUB Football a huge shoutout, for their amazing work. Keep it up.
