History

I have been a High School coach for over 20 years and have forged working relationships with collegiate coaches and administrators nationwide. They keep me informed of the current performance based standards for attaining athletic scholarships and admission requirements. This will broaden our ability to serve more clients and eventually grow beyond the Chicago area market. I was a student-athlete on scholarship at a prestigious Division I University. I had the skills for recruitment and through trial and error, later obtained the skills to maintain my status as a scholarship athlete. An organization such as Full Stride would have better prepared me to handle the business side of collegiate athletics. This is one of my objectives in starting the company.
