Episode 403 has some inspiration from Episode 401.  It made me think of reasons and advantages a student-athlete gets from playing a sport in college.  I go back to my college sport experience and also lean on the experiences during Parker's, my older son's, 4 years at Northwestern playing baseball for the Wildcats and my younger son's, Sutton's, current status as an outfielder for the Columbia College Cougars.  This episode gives you 4 advantages that playing a college sport gives you and highlights them so that you have more justification for persuing the opportunities ahead.  Built-in friendships, academic opportunities and resources, gear and travel are covered in this episode.

Episode 402 is a deep look into how many opportunities are out there for you to play your sport in college.  I my observations through my college experience, my older son's college experience as a college baseball pitcher at Northwestern University and my younger son's current experience as a outfielder at Columbia College in Columbia, Missouri bring me to a conclusion that there is a place for you to play your sport.  Hear about the NCAA Division 1, 2 & 3 levels, the NAIA level, the NCCAA level and the Junior College levels.  I give you resources to search and learn about all the levels, the conferences and some of the teams at each level of play.

A week ago I got a text from a father of a student-athlete that reminded me of Myth #1 About Athletic Scholarships.  Myth #1 is one of ten myths listed and answered in the Recruit Me 3.0 Athletic Scholarship System Manual.  Go to Recruit-Me.com to get access to the ecruit Me 3.0 System for only $39.  Myth #1 listed in the Recruit Me 3.0 is: If my child is good enough, the college coaches will find him or her.  The truth, as stated in the Recruit Me 3.0 is: A very small percentage of high school student-athletes receive scholarships because the coach "happened to find them".  Only the top-line elite athletes receive enough national media recognition that they are automatically recruited without having to make an effort.  The other 99% or so have to take the initiative  to contact the schools where they have an interest.  Most schools recruiting budgets are limited and coaches rely on you to contact them.  There is more on this myth in the Recruit Me 3.0 manual.  

The text I got was asking why some local, small colleges and junior colleges hadn't contact his son or the son's coaches about him.  The son, the basketball student-athlete, had just been named to an all-conference and all-district team as the high school basketball season had just ended.  This episode talks about how college coaches don't have the time or money to prosect the many high school student-athletes in the area, the state or the region.  Listen to Epi 401 to hear more about the text and the helpful recruiting information and advice.
