TPSA Hosts Unsigned Senior Showcase for High School School Players
Baton Rouge, La- All-American Defensive Player, Jackie Mitchell hosts an Unsigned Senior Showcase for High School Kids February 20, 2016 from 9 a.m. to 2 at Scotlandville High School in Baton Rouge La. Located at 9870 Scotland Avenue Baton Rouge La.70807
This unique Showcase, typically geared toward high school football players on the “watch list” for Division I- NAIA colleges and recruiters. TPSA’s Unsigned Senior Showcase is targeting High School players to help them improve and maximize their abilities all while giving them a head start in development and exposure for collegiate recruitment. As a result, a good workout can be the difference between a student athlete gaining an opportunity or not.
For a number of high school athletes, exposing their skill development while at the Showcase will be essential to a player’s athletic and academic future. For many students, recruitment to a Division I through to NAIA colleges, is a hope all dream of to continue their passion for playing in a collegiate or professional arena. Some kids just need the exposure to show their talents and skill sets.
“Players will walk away with a further understanding of preparation, commitment and team concept,” said Mitchell, founder and athletic director of the Texas Prep Sports Academy and Dream Foundation. “It is important to help build confidence, communication and systematically build character within the team concept. Everyone who participates must do their part so each individual has a certain accountability they must fulfill in order for them to have success,” Mitchell said.
Mitchell says that participants will meet new friends as they compete without the stipulations of demographics and racism; last and most importantly, they will have fun!
