The California Showcase is a free, one-day, non-profit event presented by Coach Terry Donahue (Head Coach, UCLA, 1976-1995) and the National Football Foundation for high school seniors to display their skills to Division II, III, and NAIA football programs. Coach Donahue and the National Football Foundation believe that the opportunity of playing college football while earning a college degree has a profound effect on changing young people’s lives.
The Showcase will be held Saturday, February 11, 2017, at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, California. It will feature athletes from all over California and bring together outstanding educational institutions in Division II, III, and NAIA programs from across the country. The Showcase will be organized and managed by quality football coaches hand selected by Coach Donahue. Players will showcase their skills during a series of tests and drills that will best display each player's talent at their respective positions. Following the activities, players and universities will meet to discuss scholarship and financial aid opportunities for the participating athletes.
