Be Honest on Your Athletic Resume

An athletic profile should be an accurate representation of the student’s abilities and statistics. Some student-athletes are tempted to over-exaggerate their abilities, height, or weight in an attempt to make them more attractive candidates for a spot on a college team. This is a big mistake. College coaches are already skeptical about resumes because they are self-reported. If one piece of information is incorrect, coaches will assume all of it is false. Coaches will eventually discover the athlete’s actual abilities and stats which will most likely eliminate them from future consideration.
