Being face-to-face with a college coach, or having a phone conversation, can make a high school student-athlete tremble.

In this episode, recruiting expert Jon Fugler helps athletes and parents maximize their conversations with college coaches.

This is an opportunity for the athlete to put himself or herself in the best light with a coach who is recruiting them.  Jon shares three things that will help that conversation in a big way.

If an athlete can present him or herself in a positive way, that will set him or her apart from other athletes.  Of course, talent has to be there, but coaches recruit beyond talent, too.  They look for character and attitude.  This can come out in a conversation.

Recruiting expert Jon Fugler isn't be overly dramatic when he says...

...that believing and acting on recruiting lies can cost an athlete a scholarship.

Have you ever bought something and you were unpleasantly surprised when the item arrived?  The picture was misleading.  And you bought it.  What a disappointment.

The same is true in recruiting.  If you act on things that are actually misleading, you'll be disappointed.  And you'll lose time and money getting back into the game.

Listen as Jon share five of the biggest lies that can trap you.  He'll address the lies, followed by the truths.  Act on truth and you've got a bright future.

Jon shares from personal experience and what he has seen for the past 15+ years with other families. 

For instance, one of the biggest lies athletes and parents believe is this:

"If my kid is good enough, the college coaches will find him or her."

Jon takes quite a bit of time to address the corresponding truth and how to capitalize on that truth.

Get in the game and stay in the game by acting on truth and rejecting lies.  There's a lot of misinformation out there.  This episode gets right to the point.

Getting lost in a college coach's pool of recruits is not where an athlete wants to be.  You want to be noticed, remembered and consistently contacted by college coaches.

You want to be one of their top recruits.

What's the secret to rising to the top?  In this episode, recruiting expert Jon Fugler shares three "P's" that will get you there.

Recruiting is a process and nothing is permanent.  This is a dynamic "game" and you better know how to play. 

You'll come away with three things you can act on, both in recruiting and athletically.  There's a parallel between the two areas.  You'll learn that Jon is passionate about this.

Getting on a coach's radar and staying on a coach's radar is the focus on this episode.
