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.

Tony Busser

Head Scout
Bowling Green State University
I came to NCSA for the opportunity to help student-athletes and their families navigate through the recruiting process. I was a three sport athlete for most of my life and was fortunate enough to draw some interest from a handful of basketball coaches at the D-II and D-III level.

Brad Butler

Head Scout
Flagler College
I came from a small town in south central Wisconsin. I was taught, at an early age, the value of working hard to achieve desired goals.

Mike Campbell

Head Scout
University of South Carolina
I became a part of NCSA for two reasons. Passion for sports and helping others achieve their dreams.

Brian Campbell

Xavier University
Growing up I played several different sports that allowed me to stay active and compete. I knew nothing about recruiting which led me to play sports at the college level at Xavier University. After graduating and working for a couple of years I was missing the athletic side of things. I joined NCSA to help guide families in the recruiting process and to better help their student-athlete not miss out on possible opportunities.

Nancy Campbell

Softball Assistant Recruiting Coach
Northeastern Illinois University
I was fortunate to receive a scholarship to play NCAA Division I Softball at Northeastern Illinois University because I had a summer ball coach who believed in me and served as an advocate for me. My recruiting story began as a unique, last minute opportunity that I was able to turn into a successful academic and athletic career.

I decided to join NCSA because of their mission and values. I wanted to be a part of the organization’s mission to positively impact student athletes lives, and the core value of team first is what attracted me to NCSA.

Michael Carroll

Head Recruiting Coach
Concordia University
During my sophomore year of high school, I was receiving interest from numerous colleges. After having a successful sophomore campaign, I tore my ACL for the first time damaging my chances at furthering my career. Upon entering my senior year, I was coming off my second ACL surgery, had no scholarship offers, and no contact with college coaches. Without direction or guidance, I had to put in the work to familiarize myself with the recruiting process.

Ethan Cashen

Aurora University
After my collegiate career at Aurora University, a DIII school, I was fortunate enough to play semi-professional soccer in England. I became a part of NCSA to help guide young student-athletes in the right direction in order to reach their academic and athletic goals.

Chris Chana

Western Illinois University
I played basketball in high school but was unaware of how the recruiting process worked. Due to my lack of knowledge of how the recruitment process ran and subsequent ankle surgeries, I was unable to accomplish my dream of playing college hoops. For this reason, I came to NCSA to help high school student athletes achieve their dreams of playing a collegiate sport.

Dan Chandler

Head Scout
Ashland University
As a former NCAA Division II tennis player that was not recruited, I feel an obligation to help student athletes understand the recruiting process.

Shawn Charles

Head Scout
Arizona State University

Ian Chernisky

Head Scout
Cleveland State University
I have been playing hockey since I was 5 years old. When it came time to go to college, I had no idea how to pursue getting a scholarship and was very late in the process as a senior in high school. I ended up going to St. Bonaventure University and playing club hockey with no athletic scholarship.

Matthew Chernisky

Clevelan State University
Growing up in a family of ten, athletics have always been a family affair for me. At the age of just two, my father laced up my hockey skates for the first time. From that point on, I was in love with hockey, and worked hard to improve my game. It was my childhood dream to play for Cleveland Saint Ignatius High School and then land a scholarship to play for a college program.

Alexander Christian

Head Scout
Auburn University
As a former two sport high school athlete and National Merit Commended Scholar, I understand what it takes to succeed on the field and in the classroom.

Jesse Churchward

Head Recruiting Coach
Towson University
Giving back through sports while working with all different types of families and athletes in all different stages of their lives and the recruiting process is my passion. I love the ability to help kids reach their goals.

Cameron Clark

Head Football Scout
Northwestern University
I graduated from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, in 2006 where I earned a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism and walked-on to the football team. I earned a full scholarship at NU as an Evans Scholar from my time working as a golf caddy growing up.
