Our People

NCSA's staff of former college athletes, coaches and scouts will help you compete for scholarships.We know who you are: an athlete on the verge of making the next step, confident in your ability to raise your game to the next level, just hoping to be noticed, to be given the opportunity to play your game. We've been there.

Most of our nearly 500-strong staff competed at the college level. Now, working with NCSA allows us to help others earn the same opportunity.For people who know the value of college athletics—who continue to benefit from its lessons and values well beyond the span of a college athletic career—it's just about the most rewarding job you can find. We at NCSA share that viewpoint—and a common passion for what we do. In fact, many of us think of it less as a job and more as a lifestyle. But we don’t just bring a real love for college sports; our people bring decades upon decades of experience in college athletics and beyond.

Will Walker

Head Scout
Temple University
I learned first-hand what it is like not be recruited because I was waiting for the teams to find me. This caused me to have to walk on at a DI school, to never play in a game, and be told that I probably never would because I did not have a scholarship out of high school. Now I am reliving the experience with my daughter, armed with the knowledge that we have to be proactive and get her in front of the coaches at schools she is interested in.

Katia Adams

Indiana State University
I have always been heavily involved in sports. Coming from a big family and each of my sibling being two season athletes, the recruiting process was chaotic for my family. Although I never got to pursue any higher level of playing, I did make sure I stuck to see the action at the college level and professional level.

Michael Adler

Football Scout
Morehead State University
I’ve always only had one true love in life; football. I was fortunate enough to play running back at the DI collegiate level Morehead State University, where I earned a degree in Communications Multimedia Production.

Paul Adrian

VP of Scouting
Wake Forest
I came to NCSA to make a difference in the lives of student athletes. I get emails and letters from athletes thanking me for spending the time on the phone helping them make a decision that changed their lives.

Erik Agner

Head Scout
Bowling Green State University
I came to NCSA to provide families and athletes with an opportunity that I did not have. I was a talented baseball player in high school but was unfamiliar with the recruiting process.

Joseph Albany

Head Scout
Lycoming College
I joined the NCSA team to help student athletes and families by educating them so they can take control over their recruiting process.

Scott Alexander

College Coach Community Manager
Western Michigan University
Originally from Bloomfield Hills, MI, I am a 2007 graduate of Western Michigan University with a degree in political science. I spent five years as a member of the WMU football program, serving as a student assistant coach in 2005 and 2006.

Brenton Anderson

University of Dayton
Sports have always been an integral part of my life, as they have taught me many life lessons. In particular, baseball was my passion as I played at the high school and college level and had the opportunity to coach at the high school level.

Mike Antkowiak

Head Scout
Marquette University
I'm empowered to help leaders through sports because I didn't have the athletic opportunities to make a wise college decision. I played soccer in high school and I slipped through the cracks. I chose to go to Marquette University solely for academics.

Kristi Artenian

Scout Team Captain
American Public University
I have been extremely passionate about lacrosse since I was first introduced to the sport in middle school. Since then, I was named cardinal district player of the year, I have officiated, and I am now a high school coach. No one loves this game more than I do.

Kyle Autrey

Head Football Scout
Olivet Nazarene University
I joined NCSA in 2010 with the goal of changing young people's lives. Everything I have accomplished in life has happened because of what I learned while playing sports.

Denis Avdic

Head Scout
Utica College of Syracuse University
I came to NCSA for the unique opportunity to provide guidance and experience to athletes at perhaps the most important and vulnerable crossroad in life.

Keith Babb

Senior National Scouting Director
University of Tennessee – Knoxville
I enjoy working at NCSA because most student-athletes and their parents need help with this daunting process and I know how NCSA's tools and assistance can help!

Addison Bachman

University of Arizona
I joined NCSA to be a part of something not many people are able to be a part of, and that’s collegiate sports. A college education isn’t something that comes easy or cheap, and after graduating from The University of Arizona and completing my years as a Division I football player being 23 years old with a great education my future was bright.

Boe Baitinger

VP of Scouting
Carthage College
I am here to empower athleaders through the life lessons that are taught through playing sports in high school and college. I want to provide a genuine and realistic outlook on the recruiting process to assure student-athletes have the best opportunities possible to achieve their dreams.

Brian Baker-Watson

Recruiting Coach
Benedictine University
I came to work for NCSA because I really enjoy the satisfaction of helping student-athletes find the right college choice.

Richard Barnotes

St. Ambrose University
I grew up with a younger sister on the Southside of Chicago, playing multiple sports. Baseball was always my favorite sport, followed by bowling. A fun fact about myself is that my junior year of high school I bowled a career high of 289. I received a scholarship to St. Ambrose for bowling and later switched to lacrosse.

Derek Bartsch

Missouri State University
I came to NCSA to help young athletes capture their dream of furthering their athletic career into the collegiate level.

Chad Bauder

Head Football Scout
University of Nebraska at Kearney
I joined the NCSA team to help provide student-athletes and their families with a positive recruiting experience. I was blessed to be able to play and coach football at the collegiate level. For the past six years, I have worked as a collegiate football coach at the University of Nebraska Kearney.

George Bauer

Head Scout
Tulane University
I came to work for NCSA in August of 2001 because I believed in Chris Krause's vison of helping qualified and deserving student athletes secure opportunities to achieve their education and graduate with a degree while also continuing to play their sport in college.
