In March, Athletes of Valor held football and soccer combines at the US Marine base Camp Pendleton just outside of San Diego. Around 100 active duty Marines, Sailors and Soldiers participated in combine events such as a 40 yard dash, shuttle run, vertical jumps, and 7 on 7 drills. The results if this combine will help these young men get recruited by college coaches to play football when they attend college after the military.

Athletes of Valor also provided several coaches to explain to these military athletes about the college application process for veterans, the sports recruitment process, and how playing sports in college can provide the structured, disciplined team environment that leads to 85% graduation rates.
