College Sports Recruiting
Most high school athletes dream of playing their sport at
college level and being good enough to get a full-ride athletic
scholarship. The reality is that most won't, but the really sad
thing is that most won't even try. That's right, most don't even
bother to submit an athletic profile to the college coaches,
they think that athletic scholarships are for elite athletes
only and don't bother even applying.
You don't have to be in the top 5% of your sport to be offered
athletic scholarships. You might not be offered a full-ride
sports scholarship at a Division 1 college but 60% might still
make your dream come true. I keep telling Athletes everyday,
"COLLEGE COACHES CAN'T RECRUIT YOU IF THEY DON'T KNOW YOU ARE
What does it take to play college sports and be in the running
for athletic scholarships? Consider the following......
G. Grades. Do you have the grades or test scores to gain
admission to college?
A. Ability. Do you have the athletic skills that a college coach
M. Motivation. How hard are you prepared to work to get a
E. Exposure. Are you ready to market yourself to the college
These are just a few things you need to consider but the most
important thing is your level of commitment towards achieving
your goal of being awarded an athletic scholarship and playing
college sport. Unless you are a blue-chip athlete then don't
expect college coaches to just knock on your door. You have to
make it happen.
