EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern Football will host the program's fourth annual 'Chicagoland Showcase' for high school student-athletes on Thursday, June 13 and Friday, June 14. The camp gives area prospects the opportunity to be evaluated by over 80 college football programs in one location.
"For student-athletes in the Chicagoland area in pursuit of the goal to play college football, there is no better opportunity than the 'Chicagoland Showcase,'" said Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald. "As Chicago's Big Ten Team, we created this event to provide a cost-effective way for families to be exposed to a wide variety of college programs. We take great pride in working with coaches in and around Chicago to help provide unrivaled exposure for their student-athletes that dream of playing at the next level."
Hosted on Northwestern's Evanston campus, the 'Chicagoland Showcase' will welcome 223 guest coaches from over 80 colleges and universities, including 26 head football coaches. Over the last two years, 190 Showcase participants have earned a scholarship from a college program in attendance.
