I was sent this press release about former NFL Star Marcus Price, who will speak to high school student athletes and their parents at Azusa High School on Wednesday, Sept. 30 about the importance of college recruiting. This is open to everyone. Contact Azusa for more information.
Press release says: The start of a new school year offers high school student-athletes the opportunity to put their best foot forward in both athletics and academics. Success in both is extremely important especially for the student athlete hoping to pursue a collegiate athletic career. The recruitment process can be very confusing and frustrating for many students and their parents, but retired NFL star and Educational Speaker, Marcus Price, will be in town to clear up the myths and misconceptions of the college recruitment process through the popular seminar, “College Recruiting Simplified” at Azusa High School on Wednesday, September 30th.
Marcus Price joins National Collegiate Scouting Association (NCSA) as an Educational Speaker after completing a successful 10 year NFL Career. Marcus, a four year letterman and All-Conference offensive tackle out of LSU was selected in the 1995 Draft to the Jacksonville Jaguars. His NFL career also included stints with the San Diego Chargers, New Orleans Saints, Buffalo Bills and the Dallas Cowboys.
After retiring in 2006, Marcus searched for ways that he could get involved with helping young people. Price coached at Westview High School in San Diego while continuing to be a keynote speaker at summer youth clinics and at high school football camps around the country. Remembering his own experience being recruited out of Lincoln High School in Port Arthur, Texas he understands the frustration and misunderstandings that happen to many student-athletes and their parents Marcus has now joined with the NCSA family to help to broaden the scope of understanding of the recruiting process to student-athletes who would otherwise be overlooked and to discover opportunities through education that would allow them to continue to fulfill their dreams on and off the field.
Through NCSA’s “College Recruiting Simplified” seminar, Marcus Price will define the “Five Things You Need to Know” and “Five Things You Need to Do” while going through the college recruiting process.
The “College Recruiting Simplified” seminar is open to all high school student athletes and their parents. Azusa High School is located at 240 N. Cerritos Avenue, Azusa, CA.
