Last Saturday the Revolution held a private workout with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League. The workout consisted of Revolution players Clinton Solomon, Jerico Nelson, Joe Adams and many others. In addition to the Revolution players, the teams scouting department also brought in former college standouts DT Chucky Hunter (TCU), WR Anthony Dean Jr. (Southwest MN State University), WR Corey Chappell (Henderson State University), and DB Caleb Williams (Georgia Southern University).
Players participated in speed drills such as the 40-yard dash as well as position drills. 36-year-old Revolution Quarterback and 2016 CIF MVP Robert Kent Jr. defied father time by running a 4.7 40-yard dash. Receiver prospects Chappell and Dean Jr. took top honors in the 40, running 4.30 and 4.43 respectively. Revolution Receiver LaDon Hudson shined in one on one drills. Defensive Back prospect Williams also stood out in one on one drills. Defensive Lineman prospect Hunter and Revolution Defensive Lineman Demario Dixon were the top performers of their position group.
The Revolution is proud to have a relationship with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. We take pride in the fact that we are able to provide our players and our prospects with opportunities to play in the Canadian Football League. We look forward to continuing to build our relationship with Rider Nation. Any signings will announced via our social media. The Revolution would like to thank all the athletes, coaches, and scouts who attended. This event was made possible by your efforts.
