J.T. Powell, the Founder & CEO of Appalachia Prep Combine, created his company three years ago to highlight and promote the region's rural/ overlooked student-athletes.
The concept is groundbreaking in recruiting prep athletes and staying true to form, this year's combined event was the first nationally-ranked combine held anywhere in the country in the Covid-19 era.
Union County represented with thirteen players in attendance. I'll be posting more coverage of their results coming soon. In the meantime, I had a chance to catch up with J.T. to discuss the impact and appeal of Appalachia Prep.
