Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) February 13, 2012
Athletic Quest is pleased to announce the recent success of several of its recruiting and athletic scholarship student candidates.
“I’m really proud of the outcome of our program, and it’s not just football recruiting and basketball recruiting. We just had a high school senior cross-country athlete in Michigan receive 61 college recruiting responses. Another Athletic Quest student, a young lady from Kauai, has talked with 98 college coaches about basketball recruiting and athletic scholarships,” reports John Scott, CEO and owner of Athletic Quest. To emphasize the importance Athletic Quest puts on academic standards, Scott shared another story: “A student at Utah State University was not up to par academically for our standards when we first talked with him and his parents, but after a year of using our study system, he got academically compliant with his SATs and his GPA and is now eligible for Division I opportunities. He’s currently being looked at by NFL teams. I’m really proud of him.”
It comes as no surprise to any parent how important it is for their children to attend college, but the overwhelming cost can be a huge roadblock. An equally compelling dream is to have the high school athlete earn a sport scholarship. Here’s the reality: There are over 15 million athletes from over 30,000 high schools who participate in high school sports, and most have aspirations about playing in college. But only five out of 100 high school senior athletes will get to play in college.
So when faced with the challenge of college recruiting and athletic scholarships, where do you go for advice? Here’s the answer. Athletic Quest, run by college coaches nationwide (yes, experienced college coaches) is the benchmark for high school recruiting and college recruiting, as well as athletic and college funded scholarships. Your search ends here; Athletic Quest is simply the finest in the nation.
Let’s review this scenario: The high school student’s athletic prowess is exceptional. And the student has drive and ambition and wants to attend college and play sports there. But the family needs financial help to make that happen. So what’s next? You can’t just go to the yellow pages and look up college recruiting or football recruiting or basketball recruiting or stroll through Alabama phone books in search of Coach Nick Saban’s home phone number. You need help.
And who would be better than college coaches in finding college recruiting possibilities and athletic scholarships?
“It takes an entire team of college coaches to be the best in the field of college recruiting and sport scholarships,” says John Scott, CEO and owner of Athletic Quest. “And that’s what the power of Athletic Quest really is.
“We know about the dynamics of athletic scholarship funding, of getting the high school recruiting candidate certified, what college recruiting coaches are really saying — or not saying in some cases, and we have first-hand knowledge of critical standards like knowing that a verbal commitment is meaningless. Having an Athletic Quest college coach prepare and guide the athlete and his or her parents through this process is extremely valuable, because we simply don’t make mistakes.”
So what makes Athletic Quest so successful?
“We’re way beyond a recruiting service,” continues Scott. “We’re a national college recruiting organization that’s operated exclusively by a unique group of current and former college coaches —our collective knowledge can’t be matched. We know what’s important for athletic scholarships and college recruiting. And we’re the only organization that I know of that actually turns down students, mostly because of academic criteria or attitude. Over the years, we’ve only taken one out of four student applicants into our mentoring program where the athlete works one-on-one with our college coaches. We’re focused on success for all parties and we’re keenly intent on the way we run our services.
“I’m really proud of the outcome of our program, and it’s not just football recruiting. We just had a high school senior cross-country athlete in Michigan receive 61 college recruiting responses. Another Athletic Quest student, a young lady from Kauai, has talked with 98 college coaches about basketball recruiting and athletic scholarships,” reports Scott.
“Part of our role in college recruiting and sport scholarships is to make sure the student is up to our academic standards. We hired a group of professional educators to help us build a ‘how to study’ system for learners at all levels. Here’s a great story: A student at Utah State University was not up to par academically for our standards when we first talked with he and his parents, but after a year of using our study system, he got academically compliant with his SATs and his GPA and is now eligible for Division I opportunities. He’s currently being looked at by NFL teams. I’m really proud of him.”
What response do most kids have with this study system? “With 90% of the kids, we have raised their grades by a half to a full grade level the first semester after taking them through our study course and academic study habits,” smiles Scott. In search of football recruiting help and an athletic scholarship, a 6’4”, 250-pound student in Hawaii was turned down by Athletic Quest because his GPA was only 1.8. But this young man was determined. After going through the Athletic Quest study program, he’s elevated his GPA to a commendable 3.2. “Now he’s going to be eligible for review by some major schools,” says Scott.
Of the nine evaluation criteria or categories established by Athletic Quest to assess a student athlete’s competitive level, four are academic and five are athletic. “We’ve compiled the scores of over 40,000 athletes to determine what college level competition would best suit them. This scoring process for college recruiting and athletic scholarships standards is extremely accurate, we have never been wrong about anyone’s baseline level of college competition” comments Scott. “In fact, we’ve patented it. And it’s a viable process for every sport imaginable.
“Athletic Quest is not just about finding any old place a kid can play because that’s all he or she initially qualifies for,” states Scott. “It’s about getting an education, being in the right environment, being able to play at the right level, and getting as much scholarship funding as possible. We want this to be a win/win/win for the parents, the student athlete, and the college. Athletic Quest is the right place to launch your quest for help with college recruiting and athletic scholarships. We care, and we’ll help you realize your dream.”
