DORCHESTER, Mass. – The 2015 Boston Back to School Showcase gave high school teams a chance for a couple of early games. Teams from three states as well as Quebec competed at UMass-Boston in an event that ultimately isn’t as much about wins and losses as it is getting better and figuring things out. Over a dozen college coaches also came by to see the talent on hand.
With football and other fall sports in full swing, most teams didn’t have their full squad, but found value in the matchups and in some players getting to start towards earning expanded roles. Coaches got to see some things with their team right now with or without certain players, helping them prepare for the season in a couple of months.
