NCSA Reviews for Football from Athletes and Parents

Class of 2020 – Parent – Football
“The reason we gave you a good score was because of the coaches. We first had Coach Hyatte whom both my sons liked very much and were very disappointed when he left NCSA to pursue his own dreams, but they understood. Then we got Coach Demartino but only had him for two weeks when we were told that he was leaving. We got very concerned that this might become a pattern. We just recently talked to our new Coach D. Ware, and after a 30-minute session with Coach Ware, both of my sons, who are twins, felt a very strong connection with this man. One of my sons was so impressed as to the information that Coach Ware relayed to them and the concern that he expressed for their future. It was everything that we expected to receive when we signed up for NCSA. My son wants to personally meet this man now, and he isn't the type to want to meet people all the time. Coach Ware is very professional, very informative, and very concerned with the goals and aspirations of my twin boys. He sent all that he said he would the very next day, he called our home exactly at the time scheduled, and was a delight to converse with. There should be more people in the world like Coach Ware. He is a special person to be able to relay these feelings over the phone. Please do not take him away from my sons, we have faith that he will help us on their journey to accomplishing their dreams, and we truly believe that he was a God send, yours Truly the Rennie Family.”

“We have recommended several people to NCSA (2 families have entered your program through our feedback to them) because we like the communication with the recruiter, and the website is very up to date with tons of information about the colleges and the continuous effort to reach our 2 sons’ goals to play beyond high school. We’re very happy with the program, especially Coach Martin Hyatt, who was our sons’ recruiting coach. We were disappointment he is leaving NCSA, but the recruiter taking his place seems like a perfect fit for our sons’ future. :)”

“James Cooper has made leaps and bounds toward helping my son achieve his goal of playing college football. He is very knowledgeable and honest, he and provides and outstanding service.”

Class of 2017 – Parent – Football
“Coach Ware really worked hard to help our son get looks by schools of all divisions, and ultimately he is being recruited heavily primarily through the NCSA site rather than high school coaches and local gurus.  My son will be attending a fine institution partly due to Coach Ware and NCSA. Thanks, Tony Smith”

“The personal attention to our son from NCSA is awesome. Even after we committed to signing up with you guys, we constantly receive emails, text, and calls from NCSA inquiring on where Kody is at in his process and advice on his recruiting profile. He is young yet, so we have some work to do in getting his profile done, but it is less intimidating knowing NCSA is there to help us at any given time. You guys are top notch. Thanks!”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Football
“This is our second son through the program. We liked the program before, but it is amazing how far the company has progressed in 5 years. We belong to our booster club and bring NCSA into conversation when parents ask what we are doing about recruiting.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Football
“Being in a small town and a small school, anything to get ahead of other players helps. When you are as serious as wanting to go D1, you have to have something like this. When you are around huge schools, it kind of hides some of the talent there is in a small school like ours. The app and the people working at NCSA have been nothing but an amazing help!”

Class of 2020 – Parent – Football
“I was very excited to get the call to discuss recruiting opportunities. During the call, I was surprised and pleased to have received an emailed evaluation of our son.  It felt like our representative had taken time to review film, assess our son's skill set and apply his abilities with specific colleges. This was the first proactive step on behalf of NCSA that we feel can make a big difference in the recruiting process and we are very excited about it.” 

Class of 2020 – Parent – Football
“This program is amazing, plain and simple. From the awesome recruiting coaches and staff, to helping my son become a young man and achieve his dreams. Love, love, love it. And extra hats off to coach Chris Vincent. He’s been amazing to our family and is making the process easier.  Thanks, NCSA family”

Class of 2020 – Parent – Football
“It is the Gold standard for a blueprint on how to get recruited. We also get the added benefit of having Coach Doug Wallace as our Recruiting Coach. He is always genuine and gives us the straight answers on what it takes to be recruited. This past year we were very fortunate and got to meet Coach Wallace at Rivals Camp. Even though he was very busy handling several duties at the Rivals camp, he took the time to meet Holston and me - a very classy gesture on his part that he didn’t need to do. We are very pleased with NCSA and what it offers.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Football
“This website is a major help to many athletes across the country. Not only is it successful, but it’s also very professional and well thought out. You take the time to explain to each athlete what is going on and what they need to do. It's the perfect recruiting experience anyone could ever ask for.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Football
“Many collegiate athletes have used NCSA, and NCSA has got athletes to where they want to be, closer to pursing their dreams or even living it. It is a great program and even better when you put in the work yourself to be the best athlete you can be.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Football
“Great tool to better understand the process and organized your work.  I see this as a competitive advantage, too. Joining NCSA as an 8th grader, my son and I already have a solid understanding of the process, and as a freshman have DIII colleges interested in my son. We are scheduled for an unofficial college visit this spring.  Whether he goes DIII or higher, this is a great experience and well ahead of his QB competition!”

Class of 2020 – Parent – Football
“NCSA has been great so far.  It has made it easy for us to evaluate prospective schools, identify and reach out to coaches at those schools and keep track of correspondence with them. The resource library has also been beneficial. We did not have any prior knowledge concerning the recruiting process before NCSA. Get my son an offer from one of his favorite universities, and we will upgrade the score to a "10." J” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Football
“I gave the score of 10 because I believe that with NCSA, if you put the effort, commitment and keep your grades as high as possible, then you can be very fortunate of going to college level sports. Some athletes had the ability to make it to college on their own. But I believe if you were to use NCSA, you can better your chance. I would tell (and I've already told) a bunch of my friends because I want their football careers to go as long as possible. Whether it will stop at high school, college, or if any of us are lucky, the professional level.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Football
“I gave NCSA a 10 because, I feel like NCSA has helped me a lot to push myself to be better, on and off the field. I also feel like I have a better chance of going to college for what I have always wanted to go for. If it can help me, I feel like it can help anyone who puts in the time and effort to get to the next level.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Football
“Through the whole process, I’ve seen a lot of dedication from each coach at NCSA. The coaches are phenomenal, and they are always checking in on you even when you forget to talk to them. They are consistent and really know what they are talking about with everything. When I sign, I’m giving a shout-out to NCSA for doing a lot for me to make sure my dream comes true.”

Class of 2020 – Parent – Football
“Coach Fergeson was great, but there was a lapse in connection when he left. At that point, we were ready to give up on you guys. But seriously, I sat in on a portion of Coach North's call with Reid. It was great! He answered a lot of questions about education, grades SAT/ACT scores, starting to dial in on specifics for location, etc. He was very informational and made a connection with my son. Thank you very much. I think we are on the right track!”

Class of 2020 – Parent – Football
“There are a couple of reasons why I elected to give NCSA a 10. Their matchmaker system is very interesting, seeing colleges you have not heard of showing a high percentage of education matches between athlete and college. The magic starts when you upload your athlete's GPA. Then colleges through the woodwork are marketing to your prospective college student. Information is posted for all coaches and email is at your fingertips. NCSA helps empower your athlete to have a hands-on approach to directing their highlight videos. The confidence I saw in my son when a coach follows up is priceless. Not only does it streamline their focus, but it makes him or her step up their game. All in all, I think NCSA should be recognized for allowing student athletes a real chance to see education in front of their sport that he or she chooses. I have promoted this service to many athletes and parents. I have seen a lot of skepticism, mostly about upfront money costs. What these parents are gambling on is that they put all of their eggs in one basket. They only want their young adult to get a scholarship to play sports, period. They are not looking to see if this college fits with their future scholar’s agenda. Once your athlete signs and commits to a school, if he or she does not like the college, good luck rebounding out of that mistake. I wish I had this program when I was in high school. I had to live with those mistakes for many years. Kudos to NCSA.”

“We have been extremely impressed with the level of professionalism with everyone we have dealt with thus far at NCSA. It is also very impressive that when we have had a meeting time set to talk with team members, they are very prompt and call right on time! I am in sales, and I find that being late is very unprofessional and doesn't value the other person’s time---your team does an excellent job at this. Everyone we have spoken with has treated Aidan like he is their only client. Of course, we know that's not the case, but the personalized treatment and care, thoughtful questions and responses shows how much the NCSA team really wants Aidan to succeed! As his parents, we know how hard our son has worked to this point and to think there are people (strangers at this point still) that care about him to help him achieve his dream of being a collegiate athlete is amazing! This process seemed overwhelming a couple of weeks ago, but everyone has helped so much that it's becoming easier to see the tools he has now ...just great! Thank you again to everyone at NCSA, we are truly impressed with what we have experienced thus far and look forward to being on this journey with all of you for the next three years!” 

Class of 2018 – Parent – Football
“There is so much information needed now for student athletes looking to further their academic and athletic endeavors at a higher learning institution. Your program has been invaluable as a road map and wealth of information in navigating this process. The workshops, the relevant articles, assistance with financial aid, ACT/SAT prep, roster openings, flexible payment options and personal coaching sessions eliminates a lot of the stress. Your program and, in particular, Coach Steward seem genuinely concerned about my son's success and it means a lot. Great Job!”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Football
“I gave a score of 10 because I was very impressed with everything that the program has to offer. Not only does the program focus on helping my son to become a better athlete; it also helps him to concentrate on becoming a better student. In addition to that, I like the fact that it helps to teach my son how to become more organized and how to reach out and network with coaches at different universities. Overall, I love the whole concept of the program, and I would most definitely recommend it to my family and friends with student athletes.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Football
“With work and kids, it is hard, almost impossible, to do all the things needed to get your student athlete the exposure they need. NCSA allows you to get their name out there to a broad audience with a lot less time spent recruiting. Also, the advice has been great, and the honesty and integrity shown by each member of your staff has been amazing thus far.”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Football
“It’s an amazing site, even when you first start and when you get the packages and talk with your coach, they talk you through everything and get you on the right track! My coach’s name is James Steward, and he’s answering all my questions, responds quickly, and is honest. So, I have a lot of trust in NCSA. Thank you!”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Football
“I learned quite a bit in a short amount of time and have better grasp on the recruiting world, thanks to Jeff Remington and NCSA. I learned a lot, such as what I should put in my video, how I should start contacting coaches, and what I should do that will get me going on my recruiting process. This has put me in a position where I don't know if I would have been in, if I didn't have this resource.” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Football
“NCSA had a well-planned and thought-out presentation of plans leading my son towards success. I was impressed with the coach's ability to clearly define the steps Chance needs to take in order to successfully navigate the computer program and to use it to its full potential. I’m glad to have someone with tried and true experience coaching my son’s success with this program! I have already suggested this program to the parents of another player on Chances’ team.”

Class of 2020 – Parent – Football
“You get all the information about colleges in one location. Everything from the size of the school to the coach's email address. It makes my son be more marketable by getting his information and videos out to the colleges. We also like that we can see if someone is following him. My son gets feedback from colleges that search for a position like his.”

Class of 2018– Student-Athlete – Football
“Besides the fact I really love the coach I am working with and he is a supportive and real with the whole process, I believe the organization provides great coaching, an outstanding plan structure for athletes and helps for practicing good communication skills, which helps athletes learn how to talk with coaches and anybody in a high authority. #TeamNCSA”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Football
“You guys do a great job. My son has gotten to go to camps and without NCSA, he would not have had the opportunity. This keeps my child striving for more. He has things to look forward to because of NCSA. Thank you so much for your help. This organization is great.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Football
“The NCSA team has done an awesome job of educating both our son and daughter, and us as parents, about how the recruiting process works. The ability to search for and research colleges has been so valuable. It is also wonderful to have the names and contact information for pretty much every college/university coach available at a moment’s notice.”

“I have spoken with various representatives starting with the beginning sales representative and then ultimately being assigned Coach Hayward to be our Head Recruiting Coach for the next 4 years. My son and I have spoken with Coach Hayward on multiple occasions. Coach Hayward is always quick to respond whenever we have a question or just want to chat. My son was asked to attend the US Football Development Games in Canton, Ohio and Coach Hayward mentioned he was going to try to attend the game at Walsh Stadium so he could meet Luke in person. I thought that was very thoughtful and it showed me that he in fact although doing his job was also interested in Luke's future endeavors on a personal level. I am very pleased with the whole process so far and very pleased with Coach Hayward.”

Class of 2020 – Student-Athlete – Football
“My brother Miles was recruited with the help of NCSA and its recruiting coaches. It’s now my turn to become a college football athlete, and with the help of NCSA and my drive to working hard on and off the field, I know I can move to the next level of football. My recruiting coach, Coach Hayward, has been great to work with and very supportive. He really keeps me informed about the recruiting process and makes sure I'm doing everything I need to be doing to become a college football athlete. He definitely makes sure I have all the boxes checked as I go through the recruiting football process and to make me a well-rounded athlete on both sides of the ball. He gives great advice on what I could be doing better on the field to improve my skills. Most importantly, he keeps up with me on how I'm doing with my grades. I'm very proud to have Coach Hayward as my recruiting coach. Thanks, Coach!”

Class of 2021 – Parent – Football
“Coach Vert was really helpful, and sounds interested in my kid, Ja'Sem. My son interacted with coach Vert and has an idea about recruiting and what to expect. I was really pleased with coached Vert. He gave Ja'Sem assignments and showed him how to navigate through the NCSA website. He sounded sincere and interested in my child. He even encouraged me as a parent not to give up or get frustrated but asked questions. Again, we were very pleased with coach Vert!”

Class of 2021 – Parent – Football
“Coach Vert is very knowledgeable about the recruiting process, and he is very authentic in the way he interacts with us and our son. We couldn't ask for a better coach to help us through this process. He is like a personal friend that we have known for years who has a vested interest in seeing our son succeed. Thank you, NCSA and Coach Vert!”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Football
“We used another service for our older son about 4 years ago. We did not go back to that service because they used local high school coaches (not all very knowledgeable and unable to provide what we are seeing with NCSA) and struggled producing a final film. They did not add any intangibles to the experience. What we have experienced so far with NCSA is very in depth.  From classes to the communications from NCSA, how you can track communications with coaches, etc. They give you the opportunity to make the experience what you would like it to be.   We’re very impressed and only two weeks into the process. Mike Sadowski”

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Football
“James Steward is excellent to work with. He always takes the time needed to explain the recruiting process to me. Prior to NCSA, I was with another recruiting firm and did not see great results. Since joining NCSA, my college opportunities have significantly increased and I am on my way to continuing to do what I love, to play football at the next level.”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Football
“Even though Ryan has not yet entered into any active recruiting phase yet, nor had any contact with colleges or coaches, I can see that the experience is already making him more accountable for choices he makes. NCSA has so many valuable contacts and tools to assist him as he progresses in this journey towards signing day!”

Class of 2019 – Parent – Football
“NCSA is the perfect opportunity to get the help and tools you need if you want to play your sport at the collegiate level. It helps get you noticed by college coaches across the country in hopes of them extending you an athletic scholarship, which many people dream of, including my son. So, thank you to NCSA and our awesome Recruiting Coach! So excited about this adventure!” 

Class of 2019 – Parent – Football
“I had my doubts, but NCSA has delivered on every promise. It's up to my son to be a great athlete and make coaches want him, but NCSA has helped him get exposure. They've given him information on colleges that fit with his goals and assisted in contacting coaches in the recruiting process. Any questions we've had along the way have been answered quickly by our contact, and my son's experience so far has been great. I would absolutely recommend NCSA to anyone who is a dedicated athlete willing to put in the work.”

Class of 2019– Parent – Football
“Touchdown service with continued emails and communications for your student/athlete, in your quest to get recruited by a College or University. I truly have enjoyed direct phone calls from Coaches and in particular just the other night such a call from Coach Albert. He was excited in the direction our NCSA Profile has helped my son Drake. He offered advice concerning the ACT test that my wife and I truly value. It is without reservation whatsoever that if you want to get to the finish line, NCSA will be right there with you, for your student/athlete.” 

Class of 2019 – Student-Athlete – Football
“10.My score represents the best in NCSA service and commitment to me as a student and athlete. My parents can monitor easily my NCSA profile and help me in sending emails and contacting football coaches and college recruiters. Like my dad says, " NCSA knows the names of every head football coach and their assistants and has them all available online. No one else does. Thank you.”
