LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A total of 225 area high school football athletes got the chance to compete and get a little better in front of college scouts.

The West Texas Showcase was hosted by 806 High School Sports Connection out at Lubbock Cooper High School.

RB's vs. LB's: One of my favorite parts of the West Texas Showcase was the Running backs versus the Linebackers. I believe the LB's picked up the dub, but overall this was a great experience for our area high school athletes! Jason with 806 High School Sports Connection did a fantastic job with the West Texas Showcase! #806 #KCBDSports

During the Showcase, athletes got the chance to work one-on-one with instructors and did multiple drills.

All of the drills they did Sunday afternoon were for athletes to get noticed by coaches at the next level.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 Sports spoke with 806 High School Sports Connection, and they told us that eight-Division 1 coaches have contacted them after the showcase was over.
