2022 MANNEY'S MEN
Year 12 of the Nike Boys Philly Showcase brought no shortage of talent (and good weather) to United Sports last Saturday. Widely regarded as the nation's premier recruiting event, the Showcase hosted over 650 athletes from the 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024 recruiting classes.
The athletes broke out into teams based on grad year and competed in three games over the course of the day. In the afternoon college coaches looked on as faceoff midfielders had the chance to compete in the King of the X prior to the All-Star and MVP announcements.
The annual Fab-40 All-Star Games concluded the day under the lights. Every all-star selection was given a Nike all-star gear pack that included a Nike jersey, shorts, shirt, head, and a specially designed all-star hoodie. Only 120 were produced by Nike and were reserved exclusively for the Nike Boys Philly Showcase All-Stars.
The class of 2022 featured committed and uncommitted athletes looking to catch the eye of the college coaches both in attendance and watching the live-stream. Below are the 2022's that stood out above the rest to Brett Manney.
