This past weekend, SWAG visited the California Showcase. The website about the event is http://cashowcase.org/.
The Showcase is an opportunity, for seniors who have yet to find a place to play football in college, to showcase their skills to Division II, III, and NAIA schools from across the country. Local talent from the valley included Tiki Tonga (Modesto High School, QB) and TJ Moore (Golden Valley High School, OL). Young athletes were afforded the opportunity to be coached up by former NFL players and major college coaches like: Steve Buerlien, Rick Neuheisel, Cade McNown, and Ricky Manning.
One of the major problems facing athletes wanting to get out of the valley is exposure. This was a tremendous opportunity for talent from all over California to get exposure at no cost.
One of SWAG's goal is to provide exposure to our student athletes who are dedicating themselves to the classroom and off season training. Upcoming events include 7 on 7 tournaments in Elk Grove, Las Vegas, and Utah. We also have individual athletes participating in Under Armour Rivals combine, Nike SPARQ, and NFTC events.
