The Boys Philly Showcase is the nation's premier individual showcase and attracts elite talent and college coaches from across the country to one of the top venues on the east coast, United Sports in Downingtown, PA. The 11th annual Nike Boys Philly Showcase attracted over 600 athletes and 173 college coaches from the Division l, ll, and lll levels. Players traveled from 27 states and Canada to compete at this one-day event.
The Showcase featured athletes from 2021, 2022 and 2023 graduation years. Players competed throughout the day to be selected for the Fab 40 All-Star team. All-Star recipients received a Nike gear pack with a bag, hat, t-shirt, and a Nike head and shaft. Prior to the start of the All-Star games, the King of the X, took place on field two to determine the event's top face-off man. Surrounded by college coaches, the elusive title of King of the X was ultimately captured by 2022 FO George Kalos from Team 24/7.
