Fall Recap: Position Player Spotlights

Dan Valerio
Assistant Scouting Director

The Fall season is a great time in which players can get updated on all metrics. The metrics piece is so valuable in todays game, providing universities information for recruiting, reality of where you are as a player and areas in which you can train towards. Also On an individual level it gives you feedback in which where you stand regionally and nationally. This Fall of 2023 included 6 scout days and 4 of our own events. Our staff covered the whole state with events like the Fall ID North and South. Also hosted the Top Fall Prospect Games finished by the Last Chance Open. 

Below will be a full breakdown of the Top Position Players that participated in our fall events. Also provided all of the top metrics. Lastly a feature of all the committed and the top performing uncomitted names.
