We know a high school football coach in the Midwest who overthe last twenty years has told every freshman football player thatif they want to play college football and will follow his trainingprogram for the next four years, he guarantees that they will playcollege football someplace. It may not be in the Big Ten. It maybe at a smaller private liberal arts, NAIA college or a communitycollege. In twenty years he has never failed to deliver on hispromise. With accurate information and high motivation plushelp from coaches and mentors, you too can increase the chancesof playing college football.Also keep in mind that many talented high school football playershave not played college football but have gone on to be a wellknown sports writer, broadcaster, high school or college coach,athletic director, etc.
"You need info and a plan earlyenough to make a difference." Jason Wilkie
Recruiter's Job
This is serious business for acollege football recruiter. If he isunable to successfully recruit thebest high school football playersin his region, his job may be in jeopardy. He will conduct severalhundred interviews a year. Howmany interviews have you con-ducted to practice for interviewswith recruiters where a great dealis at stake? What is really at stakefor me except playing collegefootball? This is a $60,000 to$125,000 decision for you & yourfamily. Take it seriously!Are you nervous about askingyour coach, "What does it take toplay college athletics?" We thinkthat is a valid question for all highschool football players. Each onedeserves an answer. We also wantall younger high school footballplayers to have this information.

Some of you won’t make it because you didn’t have the rightinformation early enough in your high school experience.Many of you would try if only someone who knew the ropeswould take the time to outline what is required. If as a freshmanyou were to try, we are convinced your chances will be improved.You will have purpose and direction for a time. As a senior youwill have kept your options open for college even if football isnot a possibility.This manual was written by Jason Wilkie and his father when Ja-son was a high school freshman. There have been many changesfrom the first edition. In addition, today there are also many WorldWide Web (WWW) sites for you to explore.Like you his parents were concerned about Jason’s future. He hada difficult time getting specific information from college recruit-ers. In Jason’s case, persistence paid off.We would like to share what he learned. It could start you downthe road as a successful high school football player. Our advisemay not lead to college football, but it will make you a better highschool football player.The competition is fierce. But there are more than 505+ collegesin America playing football. 105 colleges are in the NCAA Divi-sion I but many are in Division III and NAIA. Do not be afraidto dream.
