Colleges Attending - Continuously updating
Brian Holman - Head Coach UTAH - " A very well run and organized Event!"
Justin DeFoe - Defenseman - Johnson & Wales University
"Due to your amazing showcase and the exposure that my son Justin DeFoe received, he signed his letter of intent to attend Johnson & Wales in Denver in the Fall of 2018. The recommendation to Coach Devin Arkinson clearly had a significant impact on Justin’s skills he demonstrated at the So. Cal Lacrosse Showcase on Sunday May 20, 2018. Justin will be playing Defense for Coach Kurt Ohlen who was at the Showcase and observed Justin play. Justin was contacted by three universities following the Showcase and decided that he was very impressed with Coach Ohlen and really wanted to play for him.
Justin has played for the last ten years and he finished this year as First Team All-Sunset League as a Defenseman for the Huntington Beach Oliers. He will continue to work with Coach Atkinson over the summer to ensure he will contribute at a very high level at Johnson & Wales. All of this would not have been possible without Buku Lacrosse.
