Ten Former Eagles Participate in Annual Pro Day Wednesday

Eastern players perform for scouts in hopes of securing professional football opportunities

A total of 10 former Eastern Washington University football players took part in testing for professional football scouts at EWU’s annual Pro Day in Cheney, Wash.

Some of the players did not participate in all of the tests, which also included height, weight and other measurements. The former players are all hoping for possible professional football opportunities in the months ahead, and some will perform in other future tests and combines.

Eagle cornerback T.J. Lee III, a three-time first team All-Big Sky Conference selection and two-time All-American, had a 35-0 1/2 vertical jump and a 9-9 broad jump before skipping most of the running tests. In January, Lee played in the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) Collegiate Bowl.

Defensive lineman Andru Pulu (pictured) skipped most of the tests, but was impressive in the bench press with 28 repetitions of 225 pounds. Tight end Zack Gehring matched Lee’s impressive mark of 35-0 1/2 in the vertical jump.

Former Eagle skill players took center stage in the running tests, with cornerback Ronald Baines recording the fastest 40 time of 4.50. Wide receiver Ashton Clark ran the 40 in 4.52 and had the best 20-yard shuttle time of 4.18.

Cornerback Bo Schuetzle, a 2009 graduate of Spokane’s Shadle Park High School, had the fastest time in the cone drill of 6.91 seconds, and also had a 4.54 40 time and was impressive in the bench press with 20 reps.

Running back Demitrius Bronson turned in a 4.54 time in the 40. Anthony Larry, who finished his Eastern career with 11 1/2 sacks from his defensive end position, had the second-fastest 20-yard shuttle time of 4.27.

Offensive lineman Steven Forgette had an impressive 33-inch vertical jump, and also had 21 repetitions in the bench press.

The 10th former Eagle who took part concluded his Eastern career in 2012 – linebacker Zach Johnson. Johnson, whose twin brother Matt Johnson plays for the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL, also performed in limited tests. However, he had the best vertical jump of 36 inches, the best broad jump of 9-11 and matched Pulu’s mark of 28 repetitions in the bench press.
