Last year: 64 athletes registered during last year's showcase.
Last year: 20 collegiate coaches/pro scouts were in attendance.
The catch: Edge Sports focuses on giving the student athlete the most value of any showcase.
They are affordable: $50 per person.
They are efficient: Everyone gets seen by coaches across the south (regardless if the school comes, they will receive an e-mail at the end of the year with a link that has video of every showcase and EVERY kid).
They are fair: We list the results and let the numbers speak for themselves.
They are productive: Several kids are experiencing positive feedback from our showcases. (In 2008, Josh Hodges of Ingomar, attended three different showcases: at the first he hit 86-87, the second 88-89 and the third he hit 91-92....he later gets drafted in the 7th round in the MLB draft).
They are unique: No other organization is operating under this format.
