If it was April 1st I would laugh and think this is funny! It's April 6th....so it's not funny, but it's got to be a Joke. It can't be real. 55 college inquiries in the first 7 hours for one of the kids in the "testamonials" section. Please don't anyone fall for this and send them money.....there is absolutely no way that cartoonish website is run by a credible organization that will actually help your kids get college looks.

Can you tell us why its the best service? What do you get for your $250? The website is all hype and no real data is presented. What does 99% report interest mean? Camp invites? What is the percentage of athletes who had no interest before signing up who ended up with scholarships? What do you do that I can not do myself? According to your testimonials folks are getting offers sight unseen within 2 days of just signing up on your website. Can you prove it and show me how that is possible?

Does anyone still give those out? I'm only in my 40's, but I remember my grandmother religiously putting stamps in those books. Actually had an S&H redemption store next to where my mother worked. Just another thing our kids will never have the joy of experiencing...

I am the youngest of 5 children. I remember looking through the catalog knowing that I, as the youngest, would never get to pick anything out. If I remember correctly, my dad did get a really nice baseball glove once. I guess the equivalent today would be credit card rewards. Could be some kids got recruited for DIII football sight unseen - only real requirement is that you get admitted and pay full tuition while you live out your dream as a college football player.

Wow, green stamps. Showing my age here and my addiction to the Brady Bunch. Does anyone else remember when the Brady kids collected stamps....then got in the big fight over whether they should get a canoe or a sewing machine?? Girls won the house of cards battle and were going to get the sewing machine?? Quiz time: 1) how did the girls win?? 2) what did they end up getting??

I'm not sure the thread had a lot of life left in it- so hijack away. I wanted to say their dog caused the collapse, but not sure they actually had a dog. I remember the episode, just not those specifics. I do remember they were working with a pile of books a whole lot bigger than our family ever had filled out at one time.

2017LHP is correct....it was the dog who knocked over the table. That's good for 1 point. They decided against the sewing machine....what did they get? Next question....whose fan club was Marcia the president of?? Probably too easy...but I want to give some Brady rookies a shot at winning

Butcher shop is correct.....wrong position. There was an MLB player at his position on the show Greg also played another sport.....what did he "lose" that was a major part of his other sport....and how did he lose it???

Wasn't Greg a pitcher? I think Don Drysdale might have been on the show. The first base thing was when he was a photographer and got a photo of a missed call or something.

Pitcher...and bonus for Don Drysdale. His photography gig was with the football team....he got a photo of the foot inbounds....even though the refs called it incomplete. Yes, football...Namath was on the show. Greg was a QB....what came up missing and where did it go?? Hint: Marcia had something to do with it...kinda

It's amazing some people are so generous and kind hearted. They seek out this site just to tell us about a great recruiting website ther son used. I think John's real name is Charlie. Will he ever return? No he'll never return. And his fate is still unknown. He made forever ' neath the streets of Boston. He's the man that never returns.

While speaking at a Q&A in front of 400 +/- sets of parents at and Orlando Scorpions Tryout/Camp, University of Florida Head Baseball Coach Kevin O'Sullivan was asked, "Coach, what recruiting service do you recommend?" He responded, "Honestly, we have never used a recruiting services to get players..." He then turned around to the 30 other D-1 & D-2 coaches sitting behind him, and asked, "Do any of you guys?" All the coaches shook their head no... "So, save your money, folks...", he ...

While our recruiting footprint is a little different than UF, we'll occasionally use NSCA and some other regionally based groups and it's only to add kids to our database. For the most part, these websites are absolute shams and are simply scamming kids out of their money when they could accomplish the same exact thing by simply emailing RCs with their information.

This is what is experienced parents/posters on this site have been saying for years. A kid would be better served coming to this site and posting "Please help me with recruiting." i know a dad who used his two kid's reputation as players to start a $1,000 per client recruiting advising service. A friend got sucked in even though I warned her. Three months later she said, "Your advice is just as good and free. Plus you're more likely to answer your phone." I told her I had been through it...

I have found the Tim's Under Recruited Flame Throwers has the best success in finding homes for those that can "really throw the heat" if you know what I mean! Don't mess around with these other programs! Come to Tim's and find the Holy Grail of recruiting! We have a Land of Holy Hand Grenades special going on and for a limited time you can learn to throw real heat as well as learning the art of throwing Holy Hand Grenades. These are particularly useful if you get behind in the count, when...

I'm still wondering what Greg lost? Are you referring to the episode where he stole, and then subsequently lost, the other team's mascot (Raquel the goat)? Do I get bonus points for knowing the goat's name?

Kyle Boddy provided me this still of one of his pitchers at Driveline at one of his Sunday special training sessions titled "Holy Hand Grenades for Wretched Pitchers". Note the proper hi-cocked hand position, and well timed hand break and closed stance with down the line foot path, good stride length and foot strike positioning. Also note the good glove side hand positioning. No inverted-W however it looks like his head is pulling off slightly, which I am sure Kyle will help him with in his...

I agree but we are talking about a 16 yr old. I don't know if I can ever get him to consider the college again. Are there other schools that want to know sexual preference from the get go????? Why would this ever be part of an information gathering process?

If it's a college you're really interested in I'd call or email the admissions office and ask them what is that about. A lot of colleges use people who are not admissions staff to do those info sessions at schools. These surrogates can be grads, parents, students, etc. Maybe your guy was going rogue.

Would have made more sense if they were asking other questions toward demographics--religious preferences, food issues or something like that. I agree orientation is no ones business particularly at a high school college visit.
