SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Former Evangel University standout Kyler Moore and men's soccer assistant Jaxn Rogers were chosen to attend the 2018 National Premier Soccer League Showcase in Kissimmee, Florida.
Moore finished his Evangel career holding nearly every offensive record in the young program's history, as he joins Rogers as two players chosen from a nationwide pool of more than 3,500 players to attend this year's showcase.
The NPSL Showcase serves as a chance for players to be seen by MLS, USL, NASL, and International Pro coaches in training sessions and live game action. Training sessions will take place on Saturday, January 13 with games taking place on both Sunday, January 14 and Monday, January 15.
"Our showcase, now in its fourth year, is a differentiating factor that sets us apart from other leagues," Showcase Committee Chairman Kenneth Farrell remarked. "The showcase gives our players countless opportunities to be seen by professional coaches, scouts, and agents and it also provides added value to our members."
"We are enormously proud that we can give this opportunity to our players at no cost to them," Farrell added. "It gives tremendous credibility to what we do as a league as our mission is to provide opportunities to our players. There is no question that the MLS Combine cannot cater to all players and that many players are missed. This is a responsibility we take seriously and the showcase is gaining gravitas every year because of the authenticity of the project."
Past showcase participants that have signed professional contracts, include Tyler Pasher, Brian Cunningham, Waleed Cassis, Brenden Alfery, Sachem Wilson, Salvatore Barone, and Jackson Eskay.
The showcase will feature players from all of the league's four regions: Northeast, Midwest, South, and West. This event is exclusive to registered NPSL players from the 2017 season.
