2010 South Texas Professional Scouts Showcase
Scouts and College Coaches were sworming
Oct 30- It's becomming quite evident that the South Texas Professional Scouts Showcase is the place to be for hopefull college and professional players. The showcase saturday completed the 4th annual event. What makes this showcase work is that it is run by professional scouts, the large number of college coaches, and the minimal (75.00 donation) price. Over 200 players participated in this years event at St.Mary's University. The professional scout and college coaches turnout was like it always is, excellent. From phone calls and emails that have been received the past few days it is obvious that players are being contacted and offered scholorships that attended this event. This event is for the players, run by the scouts. We only wish we had more room to accomadate the number of players that want to participate. So look for 2011 information on the site, and don't miss this opportunity next year!!
over 200 players participated
