By Brittany Moore Saturday, July 13 – Titans linebacker Colin McCarthy hosted a free, one-day football clinic for rising high school football players to improve their overall skills training. The clinic was held at Quest Sports Center in Brentwood, Tennessee with a focus on improving results in six combine events:  vertical jump, broad jump, L-drill, 5-10-5, medicine ball throw, and the 40-yard dash. “In Tennessee, there’s no real training to provide [high school football players] with the knowledge of what to expect,” said McCarthy. “I wanted to bring this concept to the Nashville area. The purpose of having them go through the drills is to help them understand what they need to do so when the opportunity comes for them to compete, they’re ready for it. They know what to expect.” McCarthy is healthy and ready for training camp which starts this week. He and teammate Akeem Ayers kicked it off by delivering tickets to season ticket holders this morning in Nash
