Let’s be honest here: You’re going to get tired of your in-laws by sundown tomorrow, so here’s an excuse to escape for the weekend. It’s called the Bluegrass Showcase and it features 14 of the nation’s best high school teams in a two-day event in Lexington.
Beginning Friday, the 12-game showcase at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School will see teams from Arlington County Day (FL), Carlisle School (VA), Homestead High School (IN), Huntington Prep (WV), La Lumiere (IN), Life Center Academy (NJ), Orangeville Prep (Ontario, Can.), Prime Prep (TX), Prolific Prep (CA), Quality Ed (NC), Sunrise Christian Academy (KS), Chicago Currie (IL), Faith Baptist Christian Academy North (GA) and White Station (TN).
UK targets Thon Maker (Orangeville), Caleb Swanigan (Homestead), Thomas Bryant (Huntington Prep), Miles Bridges (Huntington Prep), and Josh Jackson (Prolific Prep) headline the event.
