What can you do to go beyond normal, beyond the status quo?

And get exceptional recruiting outcomes?

In this episode, Jon Fugler, author of The Athletic Scholarship Playbook, explains one thing in detail that can break loose your recruiting results.

Jon challenges a tool that most families use and get dismal results with.  He shows you how to maximize this tool to get the attention of college coaches...

...and get the results you expect.

The Internet is full of tools like this, often free of charge.  It seems like a great way to get exposure to college coaches.  In fact, the more you use this tool, the more exposure.  Or so it seems.

Let’s take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of online registries and how you can best use them for your benefit.

Fall means a fresh start for your recruiting efforts.  So... what are your plans this year?

It should depend on what grade you're in.

Jon Fugler, author of the brand new book, The Athletic Scholarship Playbook, shares his counsel for athletes at all levels-- freshman, sophomore, junior or senior.  Your strategy should be unique to your year in school.

For instance, Jon says that freshmen should use this year to understand the recruiting and scholarship world.  Laying a strong foundation is key to success in the future. 

One thing sophomores should do is develop their player profile and other documents they'll use to attract the attention of college coaches.

He shares details for each grade and gives steps of action.  Get this year off to a good start and set your plan for the 2017-18 school year.  Jon explains how.

In this episode, author and recruiting expert Jon Fugler dives into big mistakes he has seen, even in the past few days.  Then he provides the course corrections families need to make.

Jon shares how important it is to take the lead in the recruiting process, instead of reacting or responding to outside influences.  But what does that mean? 

He tells us the story of one family he talked to the other day, and how their intended path will result in failure.  He turns the table and tells you what you need to do so you're not headed down the same path.

It's going to happen.  You're going to be rejected.

It's going to happen.  Parents, your kid is going to be rejected by some college coaches.

And it can be tough to handle.  We can doubt our abilities and go into a tailspin.  At the very least, we can get discouraged.

In this episode, author and recruiting expert Jon Fugler has the solution for bouncing back from rejection.

One of the things he states is that rejection is normal.  And that's ok. But it doesn't change your talent level one bit.

Jon also shares how you can put that rejection behind you and stay on course to an athletic scholarship.

This is a different kind of episode, but Jon said this was on his heart to share.
