More than 120 players from across the country traveled to Dedham, Massachussetts, this past weekend to participate in the Rising DIII Fall Showcase, which was held Sunday on the campus of the Noble & Greenough School, about 20 minutes outside of Boston.

More than 25 scouts from Division III schools -- some of them from the western U.S. -- to observe the players on hand from the high school graduating classes of 2017, 2018 and 2019. Players from as far away as Alberta, Canada, and San Francisco made the trip. Prospects trained in the morning before engaging in games most of the day and meeting with coaches in between. Each of the teams was also coached by a current Division III coach, several from the prestigious NESCAC.
