OR & WA's Top Underclassmen
Coming out for Big Event
June 24, 2012 by Jordan Johnson
This next week will be a coming out party for the class of 2014 & 2015, as Oregon and Washington's top athletes will be on display competing against other NW top kids. We have seen most of these athletes at the NEI/Barton regional combines over the last three months, but the showcase event will be the first time they have all been together anywhere this season.
One of the biggest benefits of Barton Football and NEI is that we get to train with a majority of the top athletes on a consistent basis. This gives the top kids the opportunity to compete against one another, and really battle equal competition. All of these individuals have benefited greatly, as they have been able to get better by competing against "the best".
Check out some of the top underclassmen who will be attending the showcase event. There will be a host of other top kids there as well competing with all of the top NW kids from the 2013 class.
