“We kind of pitched the idea of our showcase being a Tri-State thing and draw kids from West Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio. We’re fortunate they are able to come down here and our area players can show off the talent we have,” said Pendleton.

The showcase is something that Pendleton wants his players to use as a measuring stick as they prepare for the upcoming season after finishing as the Division 5 state runners-up last season.

“We talk about it every day how we have to be able to do the things that help our kids and allow our kids to compete and give them and edge,” said Pendleton.

“People say you can’t win games in the offseason but you can lose them. If you’re not working on that competitive edge all the time you’re doing your kids a disservice.”
