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.

Bill Griffith

Head Scout
Emporia State University
I came to NCSA to maintain my positive influence with student athletes and their families. Coaching at the high school, junior college, and four year level for a total of 15 years, I still maintain those relationships with all my former student athletes and families.

Robert Gross

Eastern Illinois University
I was born and raised in Algonquin, Illinois. I was a varsity baseball player and received several offers to play for small schools in college.

Matt Gustafson

Baldwin Wallace University
Playing college baseball was always a dream of mine and when I went through the recruiting process I soon figured out how confusing and tough it can be. I went through the NCSA program myself and found that their services and people made it easier for me to find the right fit academically and athletically.

Zach Haas

April Hall

Head Scout
Tiffin University
I joined NCSA to help student-athletes find the right college that will help them achieve their athletic, academic and life goals. As a former college head volleyball coach with Division I, II and III experience, I know what coaches are looking for in their prospects and can give a unique guide into what the recruiting process looks like from all angles.

Trace Hammond

University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign
What drew me to NCSA was the opportunity to help student-athletes realize their dream of playing collegiality. I want to help student-athletes and their families have more opportunities than I did when I was in high school. I was a two-sport athlete in high school, playing both baseball and football.

I didn't have anyone to guide me in the recruiting process, but I was able to play baseball at Lawrence University. Now, I want to help players find where their opportunities lie and discover the best one for them.

Georgetown University
As a former Division I women’s basketball player and high school coach, working at NCSA was a natural fit for me.

Chris Heimann

Head Scout
Knox College
My college recruiting process was drastically different from others because I was the coach's kid. Not all kids have an experienced coach helping them make their college decision. Knox College was the perfect fit because it allowed me to fulfill two dreams – playing collegiate basketball and playing for my Dad.

Othello Henderson

NCSA Partner Speaker
Knowledge is P.O.W.E.R. I joined NCSA Athletic Recruiting because the network provides opportunities with essential resources by equipping parents and student-athletes with all-around knowledge about the recruiting process and instills an awareness about how sports can be used as a stairstep for life after sports.
