Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Just Maximizing Potential is an organization devoted to helping high school athletes get their stats out to colleges, because they say a lot of players fall through the cracks when it comes to scouts.
Jerren Pierce is the owner and founder of this organization, and he was at Redemptorist High School Saturday to run a football combine to help football players from all over Baton Rouge get their best 40 yard dash, pro agility shuttle, max benchpress, bar jump, and vertical jumps.
The athletes didn't mind working in the summer heat, because they said they appreciated the techniques to be learned by so many great coaches.
