There won't be many opportunities for high school players to be seen by D1 college coaches in the spring. The Las Vegas Desert Shootout has been sanctioned, though, and college coaches will be allowed to attend...

We received the following announcement from Dinos Trigonis, organizer of the first annual Las Vegas Desert Shootout.
