Childers participates in national showcase
Marshall Academy sophomore Tyler Childers attended an “invitation only” National Team Showcase August 3-5 in Orange Beach, Ala.
The showcase featured top athletes in grades 9-12 from 11 southeastern states. Players were coached by professional scouts and college coaches for the weekend. They played three games and attended a professional workout with evaluations by all coaches and scouts in attendance.
Players were evaluated on throwing, accuracy, hands, footwork, arm strength and hitting. They were also timed in a 60-yard dash.
Childers scored above average in all categories and was graded very highly in hands and footwork. His 60-yard dash was 7 flat.
