As a recruit, college coach and now high school coach, I have seen almost any situation you can think of when it comes to recruiting. As an athlete, I was recruited by DII and DIII programs. I took a few visits and decided I was looking for a larger school. I received one call about walking on at WMU in the spring of my senior year and then decided to become a Bronco. It was there that my coaching career began after playing didn’t work out.
As a coach, I assisted with the DBs and special teams units at WMU. I then spent three years at Hampden-Sydney College, coaching DBs and coordinating special teams. I primarily recruited northern Virginia, states in the Southeast and spot-recruited nationally. I currently coach at Carmel High School in Indiana where we won the 2016 6A State Championship. It is amazing to have the ability to consult with college coaches on the recruiting process and continue to develop and coach at a great program. Aside from coaching, I love to compete in golf, hockey and pretty much anything where a score is kept.
The best thing about working with NCSA is the ability to connect and develop relationships with families and coaches from around the country. The relationships extend well beyond the recruiting journey. It’s great to hear from parents or coaches who have connected via NCSA to get updates on their summer internships during college or how a player stepped in to help right away. I was able to go to a game this past fall to see one of my recruits play, and seeing how proud his dad was when they ran onto the field was amazing. It is without a doubt one of my favorite moments of my professional career.
