McMaster receiver attending NFL regional combine

McMaster Marauders receiver Dan Vandervoort will attend the NFL regional combine in Washington on Saturday, February 25.

That event will see Vandervoort perform athletic testing drills in front of NFL scouts.

The three-time USports All-Canadian pass-catcher caught 34 balls for 631 yards and five touchdowns in 2016. In four years at McMaster, Vandervoort accumulated 29 receiving touchdowns, which is a program record. After choosing McMaster, among many other Canadian universities who were recruiting him, then-head coach Stefan Ptaszek said Vandervoort was the No. 1 player on their board. As a freshman, the Barrie, ON native made 31 receptions for 594 yards and eight touchdowns to earn the 2013 Peter Gorman Trophy award as USports football rookie of the year.

Vandervoort made six receptions for 73 yards with a long of 22 in the 2016 CIS/USports East-West Bowl. He only weighed in (six-foot-one, 190 pounds) and did bench press (11 repetitions of 225 pounds) at that event, so pro scouts will be looking forward to seeing what kind of athleticism and speed the Marauders target possesses.
