North Shore Rotarians heard two speakers at their luncheon last Thursday, explain how the five year old program known as the Greater Houston Senior Football Showcase, gave graduating athletes a second chance to win a college scholarship, based on their academic standing first and their athletic abilities.

The annual trials took place in February, and over 300 players showed up at the Texans/Methodist training field to get the attention and approval of at least 43 coaches from smaller colleges.

Since the program was started by Milby Coach Phil Camp in 2009, over 500 kids have won another chance, with over $50 million given to them for college expenses.
