“This is a chance for many colleges without huge recruiting budgets to meet great high school players who then have a chance to play at the collegiate level,” said Coach Jere Adcock, Decatur High School’s head football coach. “We are trying to help schools find the right player for them, focusing from Birmingham northward, but it is growing beyond that,” added Coach Adcock. On Wednesday, December 1st, over fifty Alabama high schools were represented by coaches from their prospective schools to showcase some of their student/athletes’ talents to the dozens of colleges in attendance, such as Tennessee Valley Prep, Manchester University, Berry College, Maryville College, Rhodes College, Cumberland University, Point University, Murray State, Huntington College, University of Pikeville, Carson Newman, University of Alabama Birmingham, and Sewanee College. Coach Adcock is also the vice president of the Alabama Football Coaches Association and leads the process each year. Who knows? One of these students might have a chance to play in college because of this event.
