Did you know that over $128 billion in Federal Student Aid is available from the U.S. Department of Education to fund college for students each year?

And that colleges and universities provide over $12 billion in financial aid and scholarships each year, independent of federal and state sources?

And of that $12 billion, $2.7 billion is awarded each year by coaches and athletic directors to student-athletes?

But that only 6% of high school athletes, or 480,000 students, compete for that $2.7 billion each year?

Here is a step-by-step, easy to follow guide to successfully navigate an intentional collegiate athletic recruiting process, receive multiple offers, and earn lucrative scholarships. Diary takes you through the process of compiling data to research and evaluate academic, athletic, and program expectations among alternatives. Pull and push marketing strategies articulate ways to market yourself and get noticed by college coaches. Behind-the-scenes information about campus tours, unofficial visits, pre-reads with admissions representatives, and official recruiting visits is provided.

Score More Scholarships also shows how to maximize financial aid and scholarships, prioritize programs, and make a final decision. Actual excerpts of communications to and from prospective coaches, teammates, and fellow recruits lend authenticity to the recommendations. Whether you are a highly-decorated recruit or an athlete looking to get on a coach’s radar in any sport, the parent of an athlete, the coach or counselor of athletes, or someone wondering how to navigate the black hole of collegiate athletic recruiting, this book is for you!
