College Recruiting Meeting, Jan. 23rd

Dear Parentsl,
As a reminder,  I will be presenting the nationally acclaimed "College Recruiting Simplified", sponsored by the NFL Players Association and ESPNrise, official partners of NCSA to the American Fork High School athletes and their parents Monday night, January 23rd at 7:00pm. Cole Kelley has reserved the auditorium for this event. 
Some of you may know my story as I am local to Utah. I travel the country speaking at major Nike, Under Armour and ESPN events to share my personal story and expert advise on the college recruiting process. I also now speak at 70 high schools each year in Utah. The one hour event will be dedicated to educating your athletes, of all ability levels, and their parents on the simple to complex things they need to know and do to increase their opportunity to play sports in college and more importantly help fund their education. Admission is free and sponsored by the NFL-PA and ESPNrise. Each athlete will receive free online tools, search maps and one academic/athletic analysis with a National Scout.
I would appreciate it if each of you would inform and remind any student/athlete and their parents, who play sports at American Fork High School about this event. I have also attached a PDF flyer of the event and hope that each of you can email this to the parents and boosters.
I have found, in my experience, that the key to a well attended event is the coach. Please encourage your athletes to attend with their families. As you know, kids need to be reminded often. I focus mainly on academics, character, and dedication to one's sport and team (the 3 most important things a college coach looks for).
Here is a short video clip of last nights event at West High School.
Please mark this date on your calendar as we would like all coaches to attend with their athletes.
Please email me with any questions.
