Sports teaches an athlete how to face many challenges and behind every great athlete one can typically find a great coach. For me, I’m truly grateful to be serving in a coaching role as a Head Scout and Social Media Blogger for NCSA, a company that believes deeply in helping others achieve their dreams. I’ve described my own path to NCSA, and why I love what I do, on my personal blog as well.

I thought it’d be cool to describe what a day of work for a head scout is like

To be of service daily to these young athletes, while simultaneously enjoying one of the most beautiful areas and lifestyles in the country, has allowed me to fulfill my personal mantra: “Live where you love and love what you do.”

Hands down, this is the happiest and most fulfilling time of my life. My days start typically with a hike or a quad ride into the woods, followed by a personal commitment to physical training and mental growth, followed by conference calls that can be life changing for the families and athletes I help.

Check out this short video to see a day in the life of a head scout at NCSA Athletic Recruiting, and just why helping student-athletes is helping me through the happiest time of my life.
