GPA Showcase gearing up for seventh year

The seventh annual GPA Showcase Hawaii will be held on June 4 and 5 at Kamehameha.

The showcase allows athletes to show off their talent in front of college coaches, local coaches and former NFL players.

“We are pleased to partner with two top nationally recognized specialty camps this year,” said Showcase Director Rich Miano. “Our participants will benefit greatly from the additional instruction as well as getting seen by college coaches looking for players. Many of our participants can’t go to the mainland to get seen at camps. We make it easier by subsidizing the college coaches, and giving out as many scholarships as local sponsors allow.”

This year’s Showcase will be broken into two unique clinics, trench warfare by Jesse Sapolu and Maa Tanuvasa and seven-on-seven skills by quarterback guru Vince Passas and Asai Gilman sharing his expertise on defensive back play.

Over 25 college coaches will be in attendance, and they will contribute to PGA Football’s curriculum for student athletes, parents, mentors and coaches.

Education 1st and Academic Streetfight will hold presentations to enlighten both athletes and parents to the intricacies of recruitment, scholarships and financial Aid.

Just before that, former UH quarterback Sean Schroeder will be holding a camp of his own.

The 808 Passing Academy’s fourth clinic, the 2019 Under the Lights Camp, is set for Saturday, June 1 at Aloha Stadium.

It is open to high school quarterbacks, receivers, running backs and anyone else interested in the passing game.
