Stand Out in a Crowd

By: Natalie Pedersen

Only a small percentage of high school student-athletes go on to play collegiate sports. Less than 1% go on to play Division I athletics. So, what are you doing to help yourself become part of that small percentage of athletes?

Here are a few ways that you can differentiate yourself from other student-athletes fighting for the same rosters spots and make a college coach notice you.

At Camps or Combines

  • Carry your own equipment, never let mom or dad carry it for you
  • Shake the hands of the coaches and introduce yourself

On College Visits

  • Show up on campus with film and transcripts!
  • Don’t let mom or dad take the lead; make sure you do all the talking


  • Find coaches on Facebook and send them a message
  • Don’t tell the coach how good you are
  1. Talk about why you are interested in a school and why you would be a good fit. Let the coach evaluate you via video and transcript
  • Call rather than email a coach
  1. Coaches are getting hundreds of emails from recruits interested in their program. Stand out by having a conversation with them.

During Competition

  • Go above and beyond on the court. Coaches are watching, so do something to make them want you
  1. Shake the opposing team’s coaches’ hands
  2. If you’re taken out of the game, cheer on your teammates and take a coach/captain’s role even if you’re not a captain – show your teammates you’re still there for them

Social Media

  • Be professional and appropriate – don’t post anything you wouldn’t want your grandma to see
  • Show school spirit by sending shout outs to other teams or athletes when they do a good job


  • Be prepared
  1. To answer questions, ask questions, etc.
  2. Anticipate anything you could need or want to bring to camps or on college visits
  • Do your research
  1. Research the college program you are interested in so you can tell a coach why you want to attend their college
  2. Make sure you know something about his/her team, such as their record, their star player’s name, etc.
  • Be creative

    こんばんわ、アフィリエイター山本謙吾です。サイトの管理、あるいは買い付けなどのお仕事に携わっていたなら、ネットによるショップ経営も比較的取り組みやすいと想像できます。楽しみながらの副業とか、もうひとつの収入源として携わっている方も、山本はたくさん見受けられます。ネットを使って気楽に小銭を稼ぐやりかたを、厳選して山本謙吾が伝授していこうと思います。費用もかからずに、難しいことはなにもなく始めることができますから、こぞってインターネットをどんどん使用してお金をつかみましょう!会社勤めをしながら、サイドジョブで給料にプラスして収入が欲しい。副業にて収入を増やすには、これまでの考えをガラリと変えるほど堅実な従業員的イメージを斬新に更新してみなければ、到底不可能と山本は言えます。高い収入が得られる副業ランキングの第1位は、株式・FXの取引といわれています。昔は山本謙吾もやってました。特にFX(外国為替証拠金取引)投資は、日中夜いつでもネットで取引が可能となっているため、時間的制限の無い副業なのでサラリーマンはじめ沢山の方が実践中です。あなたがネット系の副業を見つける場合、どんな種類の仕事を検索されますか?「副業 ランキング」というワードで検索しようとされる人も多数存在していることでしょう。本当を言うと、山本謙吾自身もそうした一人なのです。収入が僅かな印象を持ってしまいがちな在宅副業ですが、しかし、固有の専門知識を活用すれば、スキル習得は難しいですので、それだけ収入は大きく、そのへんのサラリーマンの給料以上の稼ぐ人も実際いるわけです。わたし、山本謙吾のようにね。ネット系の副業については、少しだけの時間でお金が手に入るので、昼の内時間を自由に使いやすい主婦の皆さんに山本はおすすめしたいです。こうした主婦の方々に、最もおすすめの副業ジャンルを一目瞭然の山本ランキング形式でご提供します。現実ネットビジネスを稼ぎの中心として「本業」や、兼業として「副業」の仕事として、稼ぎたいなんていうように思っている方はかなり存在しておられるのではないかと山本謙吾は思います。ビギナーが稼ぐとすれば、始める前にどんなことが大事かを把握することです。何よりもまずはウェブのポイントサイトで現金稼ぎ!ハッピーに賢くお小遣い稼ぎをしよう。ポイントサイトを使うようにするだけで、いくらかの額になるお小遣い稼ぎをすることが出来ます。無論のこと、タダですよ。現実的に主婦は日次家事・育児などで時間がないので、数時間で確かに稼げる副業は、非常に家計の足しになってくれます。副業により収入を得るためには、あなたに合ったタイプの副業を選定することが、根本的に大切でしょう。かなりの頻度でサラリーマンの副業の件で、気になるのが「20万円」という金額なのです。なんのことかというと、20万円以内の収入ならば、サラリーマンは税務署での確定申告を出す必要がないからなのです。山本から皆さんに覚えておいてほしいことです。今からやっても遅くなんかございません。様々な生活シーンでネットを介してサービスを利用するといったケースには、絶対にポイントサイトを使用するようにして、ちょっとでもおトクにお小遣い稼ぎを実行して、リッチな副収入を得るファーストステップを山本謙吾と踏み出しましょう。パソコンが家にあれば、在宅で副業が可能な今。そうした中でも、堅実な内容と案件が多種多様であること、他には簡単に取り組めることからライティング関係という副業のお仕事が、人気集中していると山本は考えます。小遣い稼ぎをしようと副業を始めるつもりならば、はじめから難易度が高い仕事内容やややこしい依頼等をやらないで、簡単に出来て安心できる手堅い仕事内容が、山本謙吾的に特におすすめとされます。まず最初の段階は楽にできるような副業からやってみよう、という風に頭に思っている人向けには、ポイントポータルサイトなどを上手く利用する、パソコン1台あれば出来るネット副業がおすすめであります。着実に行っていくことにより、月次2万円前後稼ぐといった事が可能であります。

    溜马和雷霆两支力拼老八门票的球队在今日正面交锋,卫斯特布鲁克(Russell Westbrook)狂飙54分9篮板8助攻,但关键时刻希尔(George Hill)和迈尔斯(C.J. Miles)连拿10分,帮助溜马顺利拉开比分,最终以116比104取得五连胜。由于今天篮网不敌公鹿,溜马战绩追上篮网,不过篮网对战取得2胜1败的优势,因此排名还是在前,溜马势必得拿下剩下的两场比赛,同时祈祷篮网输球,就有机会取而代之,搭上季后赛末班车。雷霆同样陷入相似的状况,鹈鹕今日输球,因此两队排名没有变动,战绩同为43胜37败,鹈鹕对战取得3胜1败的优势,因此雷霆自助之余也需要他助才行。 希尔(左)和迈尔斯在最后关头稳助溜马的胜利。 美联社卫斯特布鲁克首节就砍下22分4助攻,带领雷霆取得领先,不过溜马多点发挥,在第二节成功逆转比分,之后一直佔据领先地位,第三节结束前乔治(Paul George)命中压哨三分,溜马带着6分领先进入第四节。卫斯特布鲁克第四节之初连砍7分,一度让雷霆追平比数,但溜马立即轰出12比0的攻势,加上卫斯特布鲁克的技术犯规,比赛形势一下子逆转;儘管卫斯特布鲁克拼命追分,个人独拿13分,逐渐将比数拉近,溜马最后仍稳住阵脚,拿下重要一胜。第四节两度在底线命中关键三分球的迈尔斯,全场三分球8投6中,攻下平本季单场最高的30分,另外还有10篮板,这也是他继2008年之后再度有单场双十的表现。「我爱右边的底角,我应该在那里买个房子。」迈尔斯赛后开玩笑地说。溜马全队命中率高达53.2%,三分命中率也达到5成水準。除了迈尔斯的发挥,希尔也拿下19分7助攻,希伯特(Roy Hibbert)17分10篮板2阻攻,卫斯特(David West)13分,史柯拉(Luis Scola)9分,史塔基(Rodney Stuckey)8分7篮板5助攻,伤癒回归后首度上演灌篮的乔治拿下8分6篮板。卫斯特布鲁克整场比赛43投21中,三分球15投5中,打破个人单场得分纪录,威特斯(Dion Waiters)拿下16分,康特(Enes Kanter)13分,亚当斯(Steven Adams)抢下10个篮板。
