FOOTBALL SUCCESS STORIES

ZACH

 

MINNESOTA STATE UNIVERSITY, MANKATO

Student-Athlete Showcase was one of the best decisions that my parents made for me as a high school athlete. SAS put my name out to hundreds schools to give me tons of options for me to continue my football career at the college level. I am currently attending Minnesota State University, Mankato. In my sophomore season, I received First Team All-Conference, First Team All-Region and All-American honors. I am more than happy with the school I selected to attend and couldn’t be pleased more with the help I received from SAS through my recruiting process.

MICHAEL

 

HILLSDALE COLLEGE

What a great experience! SAS worked with my son throughout high school. Since day one my son received positive feedback through many emails and text messages from coaches. We knew immediately that SAS would have a big impact on my son being recruited. They are extremely professional and are focused not only on finding a great fit for your athlete but more importantly finding a great academic fit. Thank you Rex and your team!

GRANT

 

OKLAHOMA UNIVERSITY

The SAS program was absolutely the catalyst in our success. The marketing efforts SAS provided jump-started Grant’s recruitment. We knew when Oklahoma opened the first email and the moment they watched his video for the 1st time. Great program. We would be happy to serve as a reference!
