Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 9 Up—In this nuts-and-bolts guide, Brown offers candid advice about a very competitive process that focuses as much on eligibility (academics) as on athletic prowess. Coaches Debbie Southern (Furman University), John Cossaboon (Gonzaga University), and others tell readers what they look for in a student athlete. Citing passion for the game, ability to balance academics with sports, and willingness to learn, it is clear that athleticism is only part of the equation. The prospective student-athlete (PSA) will find NCAA timelines and visiting rules (which vary by division), scholarships by sport, and more. Chapters contain an outlined narrative in which bulleted information, charts and tables, and glossaries are integrated. Real-life successes and mix-ups appear throughout, including that of "Liz," a field hockey player who was dropped from recruitment because her email address contained her birth date, "420," a popular drug reference. Not limited to the recruitment process, the final chapters offer team rules and general college advice.—Vicki Reutter, Cazenovia High School, NY

I use to work in the recruiting office of a Major BIG XII university. From that first hand experience, I understand the things that can get the attention of the sports staff for future recruits. One top of all that, I have a cousin who is a D1 (FBS) player in soccer at a ACC school. This book provides fact, that is invaluable. It is a shame that I did not have this idea, or have this book for my cousin's parents. A must read.

Format: Paperback
College sports recruiting is complicated -- NCAA restrictions on coaches (they used to text athletes, now they can't, etc.) are hard to keep up with and it is difficult to "position" the athlete among so many others. Further, even inadvertent mistakes can crush an application. Brown's key forte is tieing the rules and the advice directly into vignettes featuring various athletes at various times in the process. The vignettes give reality (and personality) to what in many other books on this subject is dry exposition of "just the facts, maam." Brown still is an active High School coach, so lives this stuff every day. Highly recommended.

No secrets revealed here, pretty much the basics. Very generic, not specific to one sport. Good basic information. Tells some stories about some atheletes either real or not. These can be helpful to have your kid read them.
