"better than NCAA certified"-
 NCAA certified means coaches can go, it does not mean they will go-, coaches still have to actually travel there and attend the event- with our "live streaming" they watch in their office on their laptop-that's why we get more college coaches watching than other events and more players get contacted


 Mr Gaffey, Five college coaches contacted me after the Showcase.
Allison Warren
Note: Allison Warren  was from Pottsville BVM   Nativity (PA)

Dear Mr Gaffey,  I wanted to share some great news with you, next year I am going to be playing D2 Basketball at Southern Wesleyan University in South Carolina on a full basketball scholarship. I wanted to thank you for inviting me to the Big 60 College Elite Spotlights because it was what started to get college coaches interested in me, and I used some game film from it. Your Elite Spotlights in PA really helped me out thank you so much!

Coach Bill Gaffey, The Big 60 Director
welcomes Brad Rideout, the women's coach
at Green Mountain College, Vermont

"We don't charge the college coaches for any information or for packets,  We are happy that they attend to look and evaluate the players- they come for free, and all information is free!"

Bill Gaffey,  Showcase Director


(Note: Bill Gaffey taught history for 39 years and coached  7 different sports, winning four state championships.)

"better than NCAA certified"-
"NCAA certified" means coaches can attend, it does not mean they will attend-, coaches still have to actually travel there to attend the event- with our "live streaming" they watch in their office on their laptop-(this allows coaches at all three levels to watch all of our events) and that's why we get more college coaches watching than events which do not "live stream" - the result: more high school players get seen and contacted- it's a fact!!

We are in compliance with
all NCAA rules and regulations
