Be Proactive with your future

Many potential track and field field athletes make the mistake of waiting for me, or another college coach, to reach out to them. 

It's not enough to send an email or fill out a questionnaire and wait for the phone to ring. 

As a coach of a large and successful program, I must balance how I spend my time -- which is best spent recruiting proactive student-athletes who are actively looking for the best-fit and balance between academics, athletics and campus life.

For this reason, I strongly encourage you to schedule a campus visit (where we can visit one on one) or take advantage of one of our many on-campus recruiting events.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
