Premier Showcase overflowing with top NJ talent

The stars were shining brightly at Test Sports Clubs in Martinsville this week for the second annual Premier Showcase. The event kicked off on Monday as we welcomed the state's top skill position players for a night of fun and instruction led by former professional players such as Odessa Turner and Scott Brunner (both Giants). The place was rocking on Wednesday when the state's top linemen battled at the Test indoor field house under the leadership of former Giant great Billy Ard.

Last year's event attracted top prospects such as Anthony Davis (Rutgers), Lamar Middleton (Syracuse), Al Ghaffaar Lane (Rutgers) and Tony Logan (Maryland). The 2007 edition was just as strong, with players such as future 5-star prospect Will Hill, Rashad White, Dejaun Miller, and Lynell Payne.
