The biggest week of the year is finally here and all eyes in the lacrosse world are on Showcase Lacrosse.
The Showcase Lacrosse division of NXTsports is set to make history by running the country’s top two recruiting events on the same weekend. The Nike Boys Philly Showcase, for the top sophomores and juniors in the country, and the Nike Philly Freshman Showcase will both take part Saturday, Nov. 21 at Episcopal Academy and United Sports, respectively.
The two events combine to attract more than 700 of the country’s most elite players. Last year’s Boys Philly Showcase brought out more than 250 college coaches, while the Philly Freshman Showcase featured coaches from just about every top 30 team in the country, including the coaching staffs of the entire 2015 Final Four.
“This marks the first time that we’ve had our two marquee events on the same weekend, which makes it the year’s biggest recruiting weekend,” Director of Showcase Lacrosse Brett Manney said. “Everyone wants the chance to play in these two events and we only have space to accept 20 percent of the applicants. The players that make it are among the best in North America.”
