Episode 268 is named Hey, High School Student; Do you want to play in college? As I explain in this episode I was triggered to develop this episode as I watched a college football game and the announcer was saying that one of the starting quarterbacks was with his 3rd team and this was his 6th year of college football. The 1st thought I had was, Wow! That takes a lot of dedication to play 6 years of a college sport. I don't remember the player or the team that was on TV, but I can imagine with all the recent events that this player probably entered college as a freshman. He probably redshirted and didn't play his freshman year. He probably didn't play much his sophomore year and then transferred to another college. He maybe played 2 years at that college and then transferred as a graduate student to play this last year . That is 2190 days of college football. That takes a lot of dedication. That is a lot of early morning workouts, going to class, practices, study halls and film sessions. I thought, what does it take to continue to practice and play for that long. As I thought about it some more and how it related to our family and then the Recruit-Me families, it popped in my head, How many times did this player ask himself, "Do I want to play college football?"
So, I related this question, "Do I want to play in college?" to our families situations. Listen to this episode to hear when this question can pop into a high schoolers mind, how often it may be asked in both high school and college and how it can effect your recruiting.
Let's get you started on asking the question, "Do you want to play in college?"
