The Power Of Rivals: A Look At The Reality Of #1

 

Have you ever wondered as a student athlete or as a parent where the best coverage is and who to share news and stories with?  How can you know who is a part time blogger and who can deliver the meaningful coverage that can really help you or your athlete get noticed?  
 
Well it is not in your local newspaper, some small recruiting service, or some football camps website.  That sort of coverage is fine but in a Thousand years could never equal the power of one story on the Rivals.com Network.
 
The reason why is that Rivals has developed over 2 decades  the largest National Network of collegiate sites in the world.  Owned by Yahoo Sports Rivals and their top Analysts like Dirk are without equal.
 
Watch this embedded  Album below and see as our WashingtonPreps.com editor Dirk Knudsen covers Top 2014 Athlete Devante Downs of Mountlake Terrace High School in Seattle, Washington.
 
One story at WashingtonPreps.com tied to Devante's profile at Rivals.com and Dirk with the click of a button was able to direct tens of thousands of readers to a feature story about Devante and his accomplishments on the football field.   This story will be read by tens of thousands of Rivals.com Members.
 
Now these readers are not your typical college football fans.  
 
No sir.  These are the most avid of fans.  In fact many of our readers are Coaches and Analysts as well as recruiters who work for the College or University and are specifically looking for talent and stories on top kids from around the Country.  
 
Many Rivals reades are former players, boosters and alumni of the Nations Premier Schools big and small and those folks get excited when they see these sort of stories which they look for every morning, noon, and night.  They love to call the Coaches and staff and get them fired up about kids too.
 
Rivals.com is a 100% unbiased source for High School and College Coverage.  They do not run camps, accept money from kids to influence media by writing "Hype" pieces, and certainly do not take Money from Kids or their families with the promise of recruiting magic and offers.  Never. 
 
In fact Rivals writers are bound by a strict ethical code that they have all signed.  Very few Networks require this level of committment and dedication.
 
Devante Downs story this morning was seen and covered by every school that has shown even the slightest interest in him.  In the days and weeks to come this young man will see a bounce in the level of interest in him as a result.  Of course any offers he gets will be because of his work in the Classroom and on the field.  All guys like Dirk can do is tell the story.
 
But boy when they do they tell it big!!
 
So who are you talking with about your recruitment?  Maybe it's time to realize who #1 is?  
 
Call Dirk anytime at 503-799-8383 if your anywhere in the Pacific Northwest or Hawaii to discuss your story.  As Dirk says after 4,000 stories and 7 years in the trenches:
"Who's Next!"
