One of the most discouraging things a recruit can experience is losing the interest of a college coach.  The fruitful relationship has dried up and it takes the wind out of your sails.

In this episode, recruiting expert Jon Fugler teaches you how to make sure this problem is minimized or eliminated.  There are things you can do that will keep you on a coach's radar and stay there.

This content comes from Jon's new book, THE ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIP PLAYBOOK: A Complete College Recruiting Roadmap for High School Athletes and Parents, which releases on Amazon August 3.

In this episode, Jon says that you need to approach recruiting like a marathon, not a sprint.  You have to continue to show interest over a long period of time, even years!  It speaks volume to coaches, because they don't want to chase athletes who aren't interested in their program.

Simply by keeping in contact, you're setting yourself apart from other recruits.  Jon explains how to keep the relationship fresh.

Athletic Scholarship coach Jon Fugler ran out of time in the last episode to dig as deep as he wanted to.  In this episode, he goes into more detail on how you can make a great impression on college coaches.

Specifically, he tells you exactly what your intro letter or email should say.  He uses his son's letter as an example.  This is a deep dive into what Jon introduced last episode, and is material featured in his new book.

It's countdown time to Jon's new book, "THE ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIP PLAYBOOK: A Complete College Recruiting Roadmap for High School Athletes and Parents."

Releasing August 3 on Amazon, this is the most complete book written that shows families how they can be empowered to take control of the recruiting process... and how to follow the step-by-step plan to success.

Jon also answer's a parent's question on how to tactfully ask a college coach where his son fits into the coach's scholarship and recruiting plans.  It's a tough thing to navigate, and Jon brings clarity.

Many families fail in the recruiting process before they get out of the gate. 

Their athlete isn't getting on coaches' radars because they've made a poor impression on coaches.  If a coach is turned off or doesn't even know an athlete exists, that's a dead end.

In Jon Fugler's upcoming new book, "The Athletic Scholarship Playbook," he dedicates a full chapter on how to make a good first impression.

In this episode, Jon examines one piece of that puzzle and leaves you with solid information that you can apply right away.  This is the first in a two-part series, because Jon wants to dig deep enough for the information to be valuable.

In this episode, you get to preview the content coming in his new book, releasing August 3 on Amazon.
