Fall Tackle Combine


Kicking off our fall season each year is our Combine!  This is another great event that makes M.O.T. a unique program in our area.  We offer a combine evaluation period for our players.
By hosting a yearly combine, our coaches are able to draft a balanced competitive roster for the season.
 
Our main goal is to provide fun, competitive, and balanced football every week while implementing proper safety and technique in a positive enriching environment.
 
The M.O.T. combine and drafting system helps to ensure we are able to provide this to all our families and met our goals for everyone.
