Savannah Preseason ID: Statistical Analysis


Phil Kerber
Georgia Scouting Director



On Sunday, December 12th, the PBR Georgia staff hosted its second preseason event of the winter, the Savannah Preseason ID at Effingham County High School, for all high school aged prospects. The event brought together almost 30 prospects who took part in a pro-style workout in front of our evaluators.

Today, our scouting staff will begin to roll out all our prototypical post-event content pieces, starting with this statistical analysis. Below we’ll highlight players that put up numbers from a traditional standpoint, such as leaders in the 60-yard dash, max throwing velocities, and other data gathered from the day.

We’ll also roll out more analysis as the week rolls on, like a takeaways piece from the day and deeper data dives with the statistics collected from our technological partners at TrackMan.

For now, take a look at which players put out noteworthy statistical outputs.
