So who were the Elite 75?
The Elite 75 Frosh/Soph showcased the best young prospects from New England and beyond with over 300 players making their way to either Saturday’s North Session or Sunday’s South session.
By the time it was all said and done we had seen an incredible amount of young talent come through the doors. The process of recapping all of that talent took the better part of two weeks including five different stories.
Who were the true elite 75 though?
That is a list that has rolled out over NERR's social media platforms over the course of the last week. In case you missed any of it, here they all are in one place:
