Wofford Coach Jason Burke on our Academic Showcase:
"The East Cobb Patriots Academic Showcase has been a great place for us to see some of the best academic players that are looking for both a high quality baseball experience and academic setting. We have been fortunate enough to recruit and sign players from this event the previous five years, and put it as a must for us to attend on a yearly basis."
Emory Coach Bobby Perez:
"The East Cobb Patriots Academic Showcase is a great event we attend every year. It provides us an opportunity to see outstanding baseball players with outstanding grades. The number of student-athletes mixed with all the great colleges that attend is a win-win situation for both."
