Unsigned Senior/Post-Graduate Workouts

Dear Coaches and Players:

We hope this correspondence finds things well for you and your team as the season nears completion and post-season is set to begin! Our seasons, as always seem to be the case, have been a roller coaster of both the highs and lows and we hope you have had more highs than lows!

We are writing to invite you and your graduating seniors to an annual event held every Spring since 1998. Jeff Moore, currently an assistant coach at Northwestern State University, began a Senior Exposure workout at Lake Arthur, LA high school that Spring and it has grown and provided tremendous opportunities for many young student-athletes. As Jeff has moved up to the NCAA Division I level, he can no longer be directly involved in providing this opportunity. As former colleagues of Coach Moore, we were with him at the beginning and have assisted in the organization of that day for a decade and we want to continue to provide your athletes with this opportunity. Coaches from all over the country have been individually invited to evaluate and recruit terrific players from the state of Louisiana. We hope your athletes have an opportunity to attend. Enclosed you will find an information sheet on that weekend, as we have 2 different sites in order to help travel and provide those of us from a distance to be more efficient with our time. This past decade we have had the opportunity to sign many students from the state of Louisiana, as well as meet a multitude of terrific coaches, parents, and people, and this is truly a highlight of our recruiting calendar.

The Programs: a few of the colleges / universities that have consistently attended and signed young men from these workouts:

Southern University-New Orleans (LA) Missouri Valley College (MO)
Brookhaven College (TX) McCook Community College (NE)
Tyler Junior College (TX) William Penn University (IA)
Lewis and Clark Community College (IL) Louisiana College (LA)
