Athletes who stopped by our Eastbay booth in Indy this year were treated to a VIP experience. After signing in, they received an exclusive interview that showcased another side of their personalities. After that, they hit up our game room where they took a break from all of the week’s action and got to just have fun. Prospects got to showcase their agility facing off against each other in the Strike-A-Light game, and they also had the chance to show off their brains with a variety of IQ quizzes. But the big hit was the Pop-A-Shot machine. Tons of prospects put their basketball skills and quickness to the test. In the end, Marcus Williams out of Utah had the high score with an insane 336 points. Check out all of the action with these behind-the-scenes pics.

This year, Eastbay will be bringing along a couple of guests, Joseph Potts and Austin Krueger.
Joseph is the director of sports performance training at TopSpeed Strength & Conditioning. He has worked with several NFL, NBA, and MLB players and is looking to clear up a lot of training myths while in Indy. “I’ve trained athletes for pro days and events like this, and there’s so much misinformation out there regarding testing methods,” Joseph said. “I will be able to get a first-hand view of the workouts. It’ll be a great source of information and will help coaches tailor training programs more efficiently for their athletes in the future.”
