2024 MANNEY'S MEN
Year 14 of the Nike Boys Philly Showcase brought no shortage of talent to Capelli Sports Complex on November 11th & 12th. Widely regarded as the nation's premier recruiting event, the Showcase hosted over 400 athletes from the 2024, 2025, and 2026 recruiting classes over two days
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 & goalies had the chance to compete in the King of the X & King of the Crease 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, and a specially designed all-star hoodie.
