Grades & Community Service More Important Than Ever!



Had an interesting conversation with a high school football player that is in the middle of his recruiting journey and he wanted to make sure I get the word out……

He, like many of you, has been attending some college camps and doing very well.  He has been getting letters from many of these colleges, just as I’m sure many of you are.  What he was finding interesting is that the standards regarding “grades” has moved up to the top of the list as far as colleges’ interest in players.  For example, he dominated and had his best camp at Harvard, but due to an ACT score of 25, two other players with lesser skill at his position were selected solely due to better test grades!  The reality was that they were looking for closer to a 33 ACT and about a 2000 SAT and close to 500 community hours!
