SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - Later this month, some Sioux City athletes will be take part in velocity training, just like pro athletes.    KTIV's Nick Filipowski had a chance to go through the workout with CNOS, facing other media members in Sioux City.

"Time to dominate," said Nick.

"The first event is the vertical jump," said North trainer Tedi Andrews. "That's going to measure lower body power output. What we do is we take the reach and subtract it from the actual jump."

"There we go, starting off positive," said Nick.

"Each participant, they are able to jump as many times until they miss," said Andrews. "That's one of the tests we thought he would struggle on a little bit, but he fared pretty well. He was second after the vertical jump."

"Next event is broad jump," said Andrews. "It measures, again, lower body power output, just in a different trajectory. This is going to be the one that Nick really shines on."

"He did end up jumping really well," added Andrews. "He was in first place after this comp."

"The next test is a 40," said Andrews. "We actually do measure the 10, the 20 and the 40, but the ultimate thing is the 40-yard time."

"Nick's 40 was a 4.7, which is faster than a lot of our high school athletes we have," added Andrews.

"Pro agility is the last test and it measures lateral quickness," said Andrews. "As we saw on the testing day today, there was a little bit of a problem with the surface."

"Nick did a great job of recovering after his minor fall," added Andrews. "He was still the fastest in that. I thought Nick showed up ready to compete today and he was definitely ready to take home the 'ship."

"Nick is just naturally athletic," said Andrews. "There's really nothing else to say."

The combine for the high school athletes will be May 28 at Olsen Stadium.
