When your trying to be recruited into any collegiate sport you need every edge you can get to try and get a leg up. Knowing what works and what does not work is a burden in a way for me. Because the football world is a small one from the standpoint that it is a good old boy system and guys generally just do what they do and rarely see the need to comment on what is happening.
But what is happening folks is tragic. Every Head Coach I talk to in High School is concerned about the new frantic pressures and pace of Camps, 7 on 7, recruiting services, rules changes, and the many other issues that are effecting not only the way they Coach and teach but the expectations that both parents and kids have. It seems like almost every kid has D-1 Fever and Mom and Dad are buying in and how could you blame them? This is what they are hearing that they need to do. But it is wrong as wrong can be. I don’t care two red cents about someone making money off our kids. I care about the kids. Period.
I know what works and what does not and for me there is no debating it. If you want to succeed you best listen up because the Carny Barker selling you a $100 2 hour camp or a chance to be an All American in the XYZ All American Bowl for the low fee of $850 plus travel is a hack who is stealing from you. Bottom line he is. He has not been approved by any school nor law enforcement group and he is going to tell you lies to get you to camp because there is no way you can or will challenge him and his crew. My phones are lighting up with call asking for help to determine what is good to go to and what is not.
So I am going to dig into the vault here at NWPR and suggest some reading for you. Consider this a Guide to How to handle your business. Read what you want, take away what you will, and while I might be wrong my decade plus of experience tells me otherwise and so do the hundreds of kids and parents who call to reflect on what worked or did not work for them.
