Working for the next level

By Ryan Peterson - bio | email

TYLER, TEXAS (KLTV) -   Charmyst Amie once dreamed of playing in the N.F.L.

"I was once told at Bengals camp that there are ten thousand guys who want my job," said Amie.

Amie's dream was short lived.  The dream continues for guys like Contrevious Parks.

"It's a really exciting stretch," said Parks.  "I have to deal with it and wait for that day to come."

With help from Amie and Tyler training guru Kelly Hitchcock, Parks plans on having his named called at the N.F.L. Draft in three weeks.

"This training has really taken my game to the next level," said Parks.

The next level is why hopefuls from around the country have been living in Tyler the last four months.  They hope Aim High Sports Training can bring out their very best.

"Once you talk to Kelly (Hitchcock) on the phone, you know he knows what he's talking about," said Saint Augustine's College star Marcus Crump.  "That gives you that trust right there."

Crump is from a small school in North Carolina, trying to get noticed, like Randy Earl of Minnesota State Mankato.

"You have to work harder because coming from a smaller school the competition isn't as extreme," said Earl.

Hitchcock and Amie are starting small, but the business is booming.

"I've gotten faster, bigger and stronger," said Crump.

"That says a lot about our training because we're taking guys who aren't known," said Hitchcock.  "Now they're known."

Contrevious Parks has the second fastest 40 yard dash time of any player in the country.  Time is money.

"Every one hundredth of a second matters," said Amie.

"There's a joke that we all say that the difference between a 4.4 (seconds run) and 4.3 is a million dollars," said Hitchcock.

In the blink of an eye a pro workouts can make you a rich man.  Amie says there's no doubt all the work will pay off.

"We've become family with the personal attention we've given them," he said.  "It's when they get called, not if."
