Raising 2 sons and going through the recruiting process twice, I found that even though my sons are really different, they had 3 very similar characteristics that I think many, many other 16 year old student-athletes may have. Now, none of this episodes information and conclusions come from any official studies or data, but are just my thoughts on my observations of my boys and other high schoolers I know. In this episode, Episode 272, 3 Hard Things for a 16 Year Old To Do, I cover these 3 hard to do things:
1. It is hard to bring up recruiting to your high school or summer coach.
2. It is hard for a high school student-athlete to care as much as you would like them to about paying for college.
3. It is hard to talk face-to-face or on the phone with a college coach.
Listen in and see if any of these 16 year old characteristics are present in your household.
Also, I continue through Appendix F of the Recruit-Me 3.0 Athletic Scholarship System. Go back to the past 4-5 episodes to hear all the first pieces of information in Appendix F about How to Study and Make the Most of Your Time. This episode we go over Outlining Textbooks, Taking Lecture Notes, Reviewing and Revising and Research Notes. Next week we will start on Taking Exams.
