This is Ben Nelson, Vice President and Western National Director with Athletes for College. I personally just finished up my Arena Football Season with the San Jose Sabercats. We finished losing to the eventual Arena Bowl Champions, Arizona Rattlers in the Semi Finals on ESPN2. It was a great accomplishment for me being able to start the last 3 games coming back from back-to-back ACL surgeries. If you want to play college sports, you need to be dedicated in everything you do. You need to be dedicated in your schoolwork, in your training, in your diet, and in the mental preparation it takes to play a sport. Outworking my opponents in my off-seasons has 100% gotten me to be able to play in the NFL and where I am today.
Athletes for College Premium Athletes are all having wonderful success in the recruiting process. We just finished up a very successful 2014 class and now we are working with 2015s-2018s. I see the biggest success with the athletes that get started early (Freshman-start of junior year) in their high school career with Athletes for College. Some athletes that wait until their Senior year to sign up, miss out on scholarship opportunities that would have been there if they had signed with AFC a year earlier. However, all of our seniors are still being heavily recruited. Below are just a few of AFC’s current athletes we are working with in AFC West. Many have official offers and are trying to decide what University will be the best fit for them. Athletes for College helps bring you multiple college coaches recruiting you so you have scholarship offers to choose from.
