“It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get up.”
“Winners never quit and quitters never win.” ~ Vince Lombardi
You do not feel sorry for yourself. You do not blame anyone. You do NOT QUIT. There are thousands just like you who did not get signed on recruiting day. So now you are here, in the present, facing some realities. Is there any hope for me? Answer these questions to yourself: Who brought you here? Was it your parents, a coach, a mentor? Do you want to be here? How badly do you want it? Are you ready to grow up? If not, you are not ready to be recruited and guess what? This is your last shot. This is your last shot to achieve your dream of playing collegiate sports; your last shot for the opportunity of having a fully funded education.
There is great news: We have the answer and the road map for you. We will provide you with all the learning tools and we will give you the likely outcomes of following through with the roadmap which is a blueprint laying the foundation for your recruiting success. Now is the time to dig deep and get into action.
Now it is time to START PLAYING THE RECRUITING GAME.
You start playing the recruiting game first by learning how to listen. Tune out distractions and follow directions. Listen, follow directions and take personal responsibility. Practice what you are learning and apply it. Learn when you need your parents/guardian/coach and when you need to do things on your own. Learn about time management, setting goals and how to research. Learn it all. You have the opportunity to reach your dreams. You should be psyched. You must be motivated and self-confident. You must believe in yourself.
