SAS SUCCESS STORIES

CAMERON

 

HOBART COLLEGE, ROWING

Cameron committed to rowing at Hobart last week. I wanted to thank SAS for all your help and support. He would have never even heard of Hobart without the wide net you threw out there for him!

ST LOUIS COLLEGE OF PHARMACY, SOFTBALL

SAS is everything they claim to be and more. They really helped open  doors for my daughter and she was given opportunities beyond imaginable. She was contacted by so many coaches, which was a good problem to have. They are very professional and  available every step of the way. They have the expertise and know-how from many years of experience and research . I am glad I chose SAS, they care about the athletes and their families.

TIFFANY

LEES-MCRAE COLLEGE, LACROSSE

I want to say thank you for helping me through this process. Truly I could not have made it this far without all your hard work and advice. Lees-McRae is the perfect fit school for me! They offered me an athletic scholarship, plus I qualified for the presidential academic scholarship and the honors program, too!
