Anxiety and panic effects a majority of recruits and their families at some time during the journey.  It could be caused by not knowing when or how to start the process.  Or, that college coaches are not hanging out in the stands watching you, or, that you are not getting recruited by the college or the level of colleges you want to play for.  

Back on October 22, 2019, Jon Fugler, the founder of Recruit Me and The Athletic Scholarship Podcast, published Episode 168.  Jon gives you 3 helpful strategies to curb some of the anxieties and panic that can creep into a recruits mind.  

  1. Have a plan and stick with it.
  2. Don't let one-offs sway you.
  3. Journal your sucesses.

Learn what Jon had to say and what I have to add to this review of this episode and these strategies for how to handle the inevitable feelings of anxiety and panic as you navigate your recruiting journey.    Happy Halloween!

I came across EducatingAthletes.org, a 501C3, Non-Profit organization that helps direct potential student-athletes on all aspects of football recruiting and recruiting in general.  The video I first saw was a young man in a Northwestern polo talking about their recruiting plan.  This certainly caught my eye since my oldest son, Parker, played baseball for Northwestern from 2018 to 2022.  

Listen to today's episode to learn a little about college football recruiting and to learn how this resource has videos that can help you on your journey.

I decided to go back and find a past episode of The Athletic Scholarship Podcast that Jon Fuglar, the founder of Recruit Me and The Athletic Scholarship Podcast, had published and give you a fresh look at a recruiting subject.  Jon's wisdom about recruiting over the past 20 years has been very useful throughout the years and as you will hear it is useful today.  Go to Recruit-Me.com to listen to all the past episodes of The Athletic Scholarship Podcast or listen on your favorite podcast app.  

Jon's Checkpoints are mainly for Juniors and Seniors in High School, but can be used for Junior College student-athletes looking for a 4 year school or for a college athlete wanting to transfer.  Here are the 3 Recruiting Checkpoints:  #1 Do You have a valid school list to pursue?  #2 Do you have 10 college coaches pursing you?  #3 Do you have at least 5 schools that are "right fit" possibilities?

This episode, Episode 375, is the 2nd part of a 2 part series that covers 25 General Mistakes When Choosing a College.  This series was taken from an article I found on the Collegebasics.com website.  The article is named, 25 Common Mistakes in Choosing a College.  This article listed common mistakes made by students when picking a college.  These are mistakes if a decision is made based on only 1 of the common mistakes listed.  This episode covers numbers 13 through 25 of the article.  The Athletic Scholarship Podcast takes these individual mistakes and relates them to an athletic student-athlete and the episode also encourages you to combine multiple subjects to research and help you to make a "right fit" college decision.

Episode 374 of The Athletic Scholarship Podcast is taken from the collegebasics.com website and a article called 25 Common Mistakes in Choosing a College.  I was searching for common reasons to pick a college, but this article caught my eye.  This episode covers the first 12 of the 25 Common Mistakes listed by collegebasics.com that a student makes if they just consider 1 or 2 subjects as reasons to go to a particular college.  This, Part 1 of 2, takes the 12 mistakes and relates them to a student-athlete and some of the similiarities and differences that being a student-athlete can make.
