Parker Mitchell’s original goal this November was to play in the prestigious Boys Philly Showcase at Episcopal Academy, but a scheduling conflict that weekend left him looking for other showcases to play in.
“I was really bummed that I couldn’t do it, especially a high-value showcase like the Philly Showcase,” said Mitchell, a 2017 defenseman from McDonogh (Md.) and FCA Maryland. “Once I realized I couldn’t make it, though, my dad looked around and saw the Southern Showcase at Mercer University (GA). We knew it was a NXT event, so we assumed it would be a good showcase.”
Mitchell signed up for the event, which goes down Sunday at Mercer’s state-of-the-art facilities in Atlanta More than 120 of the South’s best 2017s, 2018s and 2019s are expected to turn out for the first-year event, which was built off of the success of this summer’s inaugural Southern Showcase Camp. The Southern Showcase and Girls Philly Showcase kick off Showcase Lacrosse’s November Showcase Season, one that also features the Can-Am Showcase, Philly Showcase and Philly Freshman Showcase.
