Asked in College Sports
Can you get into a decent college if you have played sports all three seasons and you are in clubs and have a 2.5 GPA and which colleges should you apply for?
I am a former coach and now have 9 of the 12 players from my team in college, 6 in the local community college on scholarship ( remember its the education that's important ) which feeds to 2 major colleges. 2 in the state university, and 1 in a div 1 college.
Get online and research ( its good for something other than My Space ) There are tons of colleges out there, send introduction letters to all possibilities no matter how remote, Have a 3 minute demo video disc made to send to interested schools ( my daughters cost $250 ) You will need to work hard at it, find all those schools little and big and let them know that you are out there, be positive and upbeat and write to the head coaches directly.
Finally some advise. Dont give up, a 2 or 4 year degree will put you 10 to 15 years ahead in resposibility and pay rate as compared to your peers who do not attend.
