From one senior to another: Debunking the recruiting myths

Published on: 2016-09-15 22:09:18

I remember my recruitment experience vividly because it was one of the most exciting times in my life. It came up unexpectedly: going into my junior year of high school, I was not thinking about being a college athlete. I had just set down my bat and glove for the last time and picked up a lacrosse stick for the first time in my life only months ago. 

I played on a summer team and traveled to recruiting tournaments across the country not with the initial intention of being seen, but because I wanted to get good enough to be noticed in the future. I loved this new sport and wished I had started playing sooner, but I was still getting my bearings with the rules, the strategy of the game, and in my mind, I could not imagine that a college coach would want an athlete who had played only one season of high school lacrosse on their team. 

That’s where I, and a lot of high school athletes, am wrong.  More here.
