“Most athletes don’t have the chance of becoming a full time professional. From my own personal experience and also from helping hundreds of student-athletes over to the US, I truly see no better way of continuing your career by studying and playing college sports. All the hard work and hours you have put down in your sport can be re-invested by obtaining a scholarship, which will allow you to keep playing sports at a very high level at the same time as you are studying for a university degree. The adventure, experiences and contacts you get along this ride actually makes me wonder if the professional player’s should be jealous of us and not vice versa. To be able to help other talented student-athletes embark on this is nothing but fantastic.”
