Yowza! SPC's Ryan Green is fast

Ryan Green, who jumped right from football season into basketball season, decided to take a little time off after the Barons lost last week in the region semifinals.

Looks like three days was about all he needed to recharge his batteries.

The St. Petersburg Catholic football/basketball standout competed Saturday in the Elite Athletic Events football combine in Tampa, and continues to impress with his athleticism, running a blistering 4.31 in the 40 and posting the event's best vertical and broad jumps.

Green, who received a verbal football offer from LSU last week, was .29 seconds faster than Patrick Nelson, second-best with a 4.60.

Green also posted a 37.5-foot vertical jump (almost six inches better than next finisher) and broad jumped 9 feet, 5 inches, the only competitor to eclipse the 9-foot mark.

If not for Green's performance, the star of the combine would have been Chamberlain's Carlin Scott, a 2012 prospect still looking for the right offer. Scott ran a 4.65 in the 40, the fourth-fastest time, and his broad jump (8-9.5) and vertical (34) were second to Green.

Scott's time in the pro agility drill was third-best.

Other competitors included Plant's Paris Bostick, who ran a 4.63 in the 40, Jesuit rising sophomore quarterback Isaac Holder (4.71 time in the 40) and St. Petersburg Catholic's Chris White, who had a strong overall performance.

Kevin Fitzgerald, a former speed, strenght and conditioning coach at Florida State, Notre Dame and Vanderbilt, is the CEO and President of EAE.
