DP Summer Showcase

dp logo largeOnce the spring season closes for the high schools & college coaches too, there is one place where the talent & evaluators tend to migrate to – DP’s Summer Showcase. This week at River Bluff HS, our 14th Annual ‘Open’ Showcase was available to players in the Classes of 2020-2022. In what may have been our most talented collection of prospects at an 'open' event in all these years, nearly 50 college coaches & pro scouts showed up to see what our Adjustment Plans X, Y & Z looked like. Mother Nature more than intervened but upcoming talent trumped the weather to win the theme of another DP event!

dp logo1Do's and Do Not's for Parents: In my many years as a high school coach, I hear and can tell many stories on parents and what they say and do during their child's career. Enough stories to write a book that would take several days to read! Sometimes I like to think that 90 percent of what is said and done by parents is due to limited knowledge of a certain situation and/or how to handle situations. Unfortunately I know that while that is most often the case, things happen because a parent is just that, a parent. Fore more, click here.
