Being a student athlete in 2014 is a lot different than being one in 1994. Heck, with the constantly evolving technology and the complicated National Collegiate Athletic Association regulations, it is harder than it was just last year.
Rick Wire, President of Dynamite Sports, knew his son Coy was in for some pressure-packed years when he told him at the age of eight that he wanted to be a college football star. Rick began preparing for his son’s future by questioning parents, weighing the pros and cons as well as preparing financially.
Coy went on to earn a scholarship to play football at Stanford University and in 2002 was drafted in the third round by the Buffalo Bills, which began his nine-year career in the National Football League
Using all the he learned, Rick created Dynamite Sports Educational Recruiting System. It takes academics and athletics as well as marketing oneself to help create strategies to maneuver through the rigorous recruiting process.
Rick will be sharing his insight in an hour-long seminar for parents and student-athletes in grades 8-12 entitled, “Guiding the College-Bound Athlete.” It will provide information about how to prepare for college, the availability of athletic scholarships and the realities of the recruiting process. The seminar will take place on Wednesday, August 6 in the Northampton High School Auditorium.
