Preseason All-State East: Swift Athletics Leaders


Zach Boraski
North Carolina Assistant Scouting Director

The Preseason All-State events in North Carolina have quickly become the top winter events for the top players in the state to attend.  This year there are 3 Preseason All-State events with the East and West happening on February 3rd and 4th.  The Preseason All-State Central is scheduled for February 10th. These three events will see over 250 of North Carolina's top players, as they are ready to post numbers and go through a workout in preparation for the spring season.  Prep Baseball scouts were on hand to run the event verify stats, and evaluate the players involved.

The Preseason All-State has made Next Level Training Center in Greenville, NC its home for 4 years.  Next Level is a tremendous facility that offers a spacious workout facility.  Players had plenty or room to run a laser timed 30, while catchers, infielders, and outfielders were able to stretch their arms in their evaluation phase.  Pitchers threw off of indoor mounds.  During BP, players were able to see the ball fly over 100 feet off the bat with the setup at Next Level.

The Preseason All-State featured 73 of North Carolina's top talent, with a heavy leaning to those players that attend school in the Triangle area and east.  Below we take a data dive into the results of the workout.

SWIFT JUMP TESTING

Players were able to test their vertical jump as well as an RSI jump.  The Veritcal Jump gives Scouts an idea on the power and explosion an athlete possesses.  The Vertical was performed without a step, meaning the athlete was standing still with two feet on the ground and then jumped.  

The RSI Jump Test is testing an athlete’s ability to create explosion with quickness.  With their hands on their hips, the athlete was instructed to jump as high as they can, four times in a row, without limited time on the ground.  We want to see the athlete quickly get off the ground after each jump, and still create a solid vertical jump. The reactive strength index (RSI) describes the individual's capability to quickly change from an eccentric muscular contraction to a concentric one [1]. In other words, the RSI was created to assess the athlete's reactive strength
