About the event

The Greater DFW Unsigned Senior & All-Star Showcase committee has unveiled the official nominations for the 2nd Annual Unsigned Senior & All-Star games! The 2018 teams will feature some of the state’s top talent hailing from the DFW Metroplex. Last year, Heads Up! set the stage for 18 unsigned seniors to showcase their talents, giving college coaches/recruiters one ‘last look’… 17 of those student-athletes received scholarships.

 Heads Up! has spent 15 years mentoring student-athletes/leaders, providing quarterly opportunities for development and exposure that prepares them for their future. Last year’s event featured 22 of the best players in southern Dallas county (East vs West) - all set before a host of college coaches/recruiters; and only 4 players had college commitments prior to tip-off. Within 6 weeks following that presentation, 14 of those unsigned Seniors were offered college scholarships. We proudly attribute that to the mass media and direct support provided by our organization. Currently, 21 of the 22 players are all off at colleges across the United States and we couldn't be prouder of them all.

 This year’s premiere event will have a few new features. Prior to the showcase game day, the Unsigned Senior Combine will allow registered, high school Unsigned Seniors to show off their athletic ability with timed/measured activities and controlled scrimmages. Only 20-24 of those participants will be selected to play in the Showcase Game that precedes the All-Star Games. We have also added an All-Star Girls’ Game to premiere just before the Boys’ All-Star Game.

Prior to this action-packed weekend, the selected All-Star athletes will participate in a mandatory Volunteer initiative led by Heads Up! to support the North Texas Food Bank (Dallas). An exclusive Media Day event will follow at Epic Waters (Grand Prairie, TX) that will include participant interviews/photos, promotion of the GDHSS event and some waterpark fun!

This event will be principally covered by HeadsUp! MEDIA – a media entity of The Heads Up! Foundation – that produces record viewership via its social media platforms. In December 2017, HeadsUp! MEDIA generated over 500k+ impressions via Twitter alone (that’s over 17k impressions per day). With an estimated 1M+ annual viewership reach, HeadsUp! MEDIA has summarily become a trusted source for quality media coverage that remains holistically focused on the KIDS over everything. There are sponsorship and advertising opportunities available for individuals, small businesses, and corporations that we are actively seeking to underwrite expenses.

 “The student-athletes selected to the Greater Dallas All-Star High School Showcase rosters represent the future of basketball,” notes SportsInfluencer Jabari Johnson, Founder of The Heads Up! Foundation and GDHSS creator. “We’re excited about the opportunity to showcase some of the finest basketball talent across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex while raising funds and awareness for our favorite local charities. We hope to serve as a launch pad of success for our student-athletes and look forward to following their respective careers at the next level.”

 The Unsigned Senior & All-Star Games are open to the public. Tickets will go on sale in March. Event proceeds benefit The Heads Up! Foundation, a local nonprofit organization founded in 2003 whose mission is to uplift youth through sports, education, and mentoring. Since inception, The Heads Up! Foundation has impacted over 1,000,000 lives through youth mentoring, educational enrichment programs, and community outreach.
