Areas of Focus to Help You Stand Out

Pima College Coaches Gives Personal & Recruiting Advice - Click Here to Read Armando Quiroz personal and recruiting advice for high school athletes, as written by the Tucson Citizen.

Focus Areas
If you are a high school athlete interested in playing at the college level, the following focus areas can help you seperate yourself from other potential recruits.
-Grades:  Not only will grades put you ahead of a potential recruit, but also could open up doors for additional financial assistance.
-Attitude: Be a good teammate and overall young adult.  A coach is not interested in high school athletes with attitude problems, there are to many kids out there to settle for one that disrespects their coach, the game or their parents.
- Priorities:  Im sure you have all seen the NCAA commercial that talks about, every year thousands of athletes go pro in something other than their sport.  Do not give up on your dreams, just because a school shows interest in you.  Effectively introduce yourself to your targeted schools, that carry your potential major, in order to give yourself the best possible chance of competing in college, as well as pursue your targeted degree.

     As you read the article above, I am sure each of you could relate to several of the topics Coach Quiroz covered.  The recruiting process can be a confusing time for a high school athlete and parents, especially if it is the first time for the parents.  So often, the athlete and parent don't know where to start, who to contact, what to say, how to contact etc...Not to mention, have the time to do it all effectively.  Upper Hand Promotions is dedicated to teaching athletes and parents how to effectively navigate the recruiting process and if needed help carry out an effective promotional plan.
