Successful Annual MLK Day College Showcase
Team Chicago’s Annual MLK Day College Showcase was a huge success with close to 100 players displaying their talents in front of 60 college coaches. The coaches represented schools at all levels of the college game, and they came from as far away as UNLV in Las Vegas.
NCAA Division I was represented by coaches from the Big Ten (Illinois, Northwestern, Michigan State, and Iowa) as well as Illinois State, Loyola, NIU, UIC, SIU-E, IPFW, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Wisconsin-Green Bay, and UNLV. NCAA Division II was represented by among others national powerhouse Grand Valley State U., Wisconsin-Parkside, Lewis, and Illinois-Springfield. NCAA Division III was represented by some of its strongest academic and soccer program such as University of Chicago, Washington U., and Kalamazoo College. And NAIA was very well-represented as well.
