THE EVENT WAS A BIG HIT WITH PLAYERS, SCOUTS, and COACHES and PARENTS
Texas Prep Stars hosted its 1st annual “Top 100” Texas Showcase event on June 30th and it proved to be a home run for the players, coaches, and analyst who attended. The event was held at Prince of Peace High School in Carrolton Texas, with a total of 10 coaches and 3 National Recruiting Analyst watching and evaluating many of the top prospects in the state.
“The Showcase was a big hit and will continue to get more visibility each year we run it,” said Clarence Nevels, Director of 5 Star Performance Camps and founder of Tag Team Sportz... “We had players this year from many different cities, even as far away as Corpus Christi. If you are a top prospect, it doesn’t get any better than this in terms of the opportunity to showcase your talent.”
“Our Top 100 players this year came from all over the lone star state. A few surprise guests from Louisiana that couldn’t resist the opportunity to compete against the best Texas has to offer. “The quality of the players participating is outstanding and we will continue to draw more and more scouts and coaches to the event.”
Notable prospects from the Dallas area, and South Texas area including Ray Lea Wylie High School, Jordan Bracy of Mesquite High School, Ellis Jefferson of Denton Guyer, Anthony Canady of Mesquite High School, Ian Neithercut of Centennial High School, Phillip Franco of Carroll High School, Gennard Ray Johnson of Waxahachie High School, Jaden Taylor Harlingen High School, Stody Bradley of Arlington Bowie and Jaelan Austin of South Grand Prairie got the opportunity to showcase their skills in front of a large gathering of analyst and also independent college scouts. Players are not timed or measured. They are there to train and show off their skills. The event was a comprehensive 1-day showcase so every player got their turn in the spotlight in front of the coaches and scouts.
“All eyes are on you when you are competing, and parents are able to follow along as players names, graduating class and schools are announced just before they compete. “This opportunity to showcase yourself in front of so many trainers, coaches and scouts is second to none," said Orlando Williams.
“Our Top 100 Showcase event gives each of these players maximum visibility and exposure for those who plan to play football in college and even in the pros someday,” Clay Mack was quoted saying.
“The talent we had this year was excellent,” smiled D-Rob, who played for the University of Oklahoma. “The talent level was the highest I have ever seen at any event that I have worked.”
“We’ve been running events for almost a decade and the Top 100 event just made sense, and it will only get bigger and better,” said Monica Thomas. “But we pride ourselves in keeping this to exactly the Top 100 players. We’re happy with how it went this year and look forward to more great years in the future.”
