For every football player that receives a Division 1A scholarship to attend college, there are hundreds who are simply left out of the mix when it comes to one of the most important decisions of a lifetime.
For whatever reason, whether you are not quite the caliber player for the Division I football programs, or perhaps your grades and/or test scores are not within the qualifying standards for Division I football, that does not mean you're football career and your chance at financial help for an education are over.
SCVarsity.com's Jim Baxter has collaborated with?High School Coaches in South Carolina to help with the placement of Student Athletes that wish to continue their football careers. We expect 50 or more college coaches from NCAA Division II/III/NAIA/ and Prep Schools to scout the Palmetto state prospective Student Athletes at the Senior-Small School Combine. All of these schools have the ability to help you financially either through scholarships, Grant, and Aide MONEY.
Attracting scholarship money from colleges and universities has become one of the main objectives of parents, coaches and players, who in these tough economic times, need financial assistance in getting a college education.
The event, which will be held at The Plex Indoor Facility in Irmo, South Carolina, will help student/athletes showcase their skills that many have missed over the past year. It's a chance for them to achieve that goal of going to college to play football and receive a quality education.
"We did one of these events about three years ago," said SCVarsity.com's Jim Baxter, "at Spring Valley High School. We had about 150 kids out there and about 25 small colleges represented. Numerous kids were able to secure financial packages from schools and ended up being able to continue playing football at the next level. So many kids zero in on DI schools and never even give the small schools a glance. These schools don't have the same recruiting budget, so being able to see these players in a collective group like this is key."
"Some services in Florida do this annually," said Baxter, "and help a lot of kids. Now, they charge 50 or 60 bucks for their event. We wanted to be able to help the kids in the same manner, but we felt we could do it at a fraction of the cost. The ten dollars we get covers insurance, facilities, and camp workers."
The cost of the event is only $10.00. Space will be limited to allow for effective evaluation by the college recruiters.
What you need to bring:
1. Transcript (can be unofficial copy)
2. Copy of game film/highlights (if available on DVD or CD)
3. Workout shirt and shorts
4. Cleats and Turf/Tennis Shoes
What this combine is:
An final opportunity for you to showcase your abilities to recruiters who have been unable to see you personally. It is a chance to get film in their hands, let them eyeball you in combine action, and let them see your transcripts to verify that they can help you. These are the schools that can put together financial packages for you so that you can further your education and football career.
What this combine is not:
This is not a media event. There will be no rankings, nor evaluations outside of the college recruiters' evaluations. We are not looking for record setters nor a lot of hype around "match ups" in one one one's. This event is purely to help you get seen by the last sets of eyeballs that can help you.
