Donahue's event

Aspiring college football athletes will have the chance to show NAIA and NCAA Division II and III programs what they have to offer during the California Showcase put on by the National Football Foundation and former UCLA Coach Terry Donahue, a Newport Beach resident.

Athletes will display their talents by completing a set of tests and drills designed for specific positions during the event, scheduled Feb. 23 at the Home Depot Center in Carson. After the activities, players can meet with representatives from schools to discuss scholarship opportunities.

Eligible athletes must be graduating high school, must not have accepted a scholarship from a Division I school and must register online beforehand. They must also have a 2.5 grade-point average or be in the top half of their graduating class or have a minimum SAT score of 1,000 (math and verbal only) or ACT of 18 or higher.
