Second Annual Carolinas Senior Football Showcase (pdf attached)
More than 200 high school seniors will participate in a free football combine, attempting to earn financial aid packages from Division II, III and NAIA college football coaches.
Saturday, March 3, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. EST
Charlotte Latin School, 9502 Providence Rd., Charlotte, NC 28277 (Exit 57 off I-485)
The Second Annual Carolinas Senior Football Showcase is a free one-day event, conducted in association with the National Football Foundation (NFF) and the Blazing 7 on 7 Foundation, providing academically eligible high school seniors an opportunity to earn financial aid to go to college and play football at the NCAA Division II, III and NAIA levels. The NFF stages four showcases nationwide, which last year resulted in more than $6 million in freshman financial aid. The four sites include Charlotte, South Florida, Los Angeles and Houston.
Participants, who all have to meet minimum academic standards, compete in a series of athletic drills designed to let divisional college coaches assess each player’s potential, including a 40-yard dash and several agility and strength tests. The events allow the college recruiters a unique opportunity to evaluate a large number of qualified student-athletes in a short period while minimizing their travel costs. Following the showcase, players and universities meet with the participating student-athletes to discuss scholarship opportunities. For more information go to carolinasfootballshowcase.com
