A Simple Guide to Getting an Athletic Scholarship by Gary Hiles

If you need to find an athletic scholarship, this book will provide the help you need. The author teaches parents and athletes the basics of how to get athletes noticed by college coaches and how to find thousands of dollars in athletic scholarships. He also teaches them how to avoid unnecessary expenses during the process. The book tells how to avoid common mistakes, such as parents waiting too late to start the scholarship search process, and encourages parents to hedge their bets and not limit their options before receiving an offer. Parents looking for detailed ways to help their athletically talented child will find them, whether it’s how to create mailing lists, keep accurate records, contact coaches or work with a coaching staff. The author includes some of his more than 100 success stories. His methods are proven and have worked for him many times, and they will work for you too.

I highly recommend this book to any parent who wants his or her child to better themselves with an athletic scholarship. Read the book and use it for it works. – Ralph Davis, Mr. Kentucky Basketball and starting guard with the University of Cincinnati Bearcats 1957-1960 and Guard for the Chicago Packers NBA 1960-1962.
