Why Athletes & Parents Are Raving About Us

  • Austin Mowrey Austin Mowrey Columbia University - Baseball Team
    I would recommend SportsForce to other student-athletes because of the work they do for you. They provide all student athletes with the chance to continue their education and athletic careers.  
  • Garrett Hastings Garrett Hastings University of Kentucky - Basketball Team
    They (Sports Force) have an understanding of the process, templates and the data to develop communication for schools across the country and all athletic and educational levels. But be prepared as a family to make an effort to work together and research. 
  • Joel Brown Joel Brown Chapman University - Baseball Team
    I would recommend SportsForce to any other athlete because recruiting today is entirely different than it was 10 years ago. You can’t just be a star athlete on your high school team or have a good weekend at a tournament and receive a college scholarship. You have to go out of your way and contact as many schools as possible and SportsForce makes sure you are able to successfully do this. They helped me receive opportunities I wouldn’t have been able to receive on my own. SportsForce is the way to go if you are serious about playing college athletics.  
  • Austin Ruiz Austin Ruiz Azusa Pacific University - Baseball Team
    I highly recommend getting involved with Andrew and his talented team as early on in the process as you can. It will save you a lot of frustration and money in the long run. His team is very knowledgeable and they can help in many ways. It was money well spent and we thank you guys for everything you have done for our son as well as our family. Jenna is next!  -Parents of Austin Ruiz
