Fall Showcase home to state's best annually

The Reebok Fall Showcase has been an annual forum for Arizona's best players to showcase their abilities over the years. This event has been the venue of choice for all of Arizona's top performers, year after year, to meet in the pre-season and compete against one another. For many of the lesser known participants across the state that compete each year as well, the Fall Showcase has been a platform for them to put themselves on the recruiting map.

Each year, many of the state's top performers during the high school season have been defined by their individual performances in the Fall Showcase. An all-star showing in the Fall Showcase has led to a stellar high school season, and, potentially a very good high school career.

Last year's (2006) Co-Tournament Most Valuable Player, Brendon Lavender, jump-started his college recruitment in this annual event, and eventually earned a division-I scholarship to the University of Arizona. In the 2005 Fall Showcase, Gilbert Mesquite HS standout post-player Gavin Edwards came into the event without any division-I scholarship offers, but after an exceptional performance in the event, eventually earned a division-I scholarship to the University of Connecticut.

These are just two names of the hundreds of high school performers that have found success through playing in such an exciting local event.

Because it is so difficult for our Arizona Preps' to see the majority of the state's best high school talent during the high school season (can only cover 1-2 high school games per/night), the Arizona Preps Fall Showcase has given our staff a venue to see everyone of it's participants over the course of three days, allowing us the opportunity to take player photos, evaluate each individual player and conduct interviews throughout the tournament. Also, with the many top rated national and regional scouts that are in attendance for the event, participants are given an opportunity to gain national exposure as well.

Here is a short list of just some of the many Arizona top performers that have participated in the Fall Showcase over it's 9 years of existence...
