Former NFL player speaks at Hayward High School
By Helen Tracey-Noren
How often do high school students get to meet NFL players? On April 9 at 7 p.m., former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Julian Jenkins will be speaking on behalf of the National Collegiate Scouting Association (NCSA) at Hayward High School. Jenkins will be offering advice on how students can maximize their chance of receiving a college athletic scholarship.
This "College Recruiting Simplified" seminar will be free for the public and aims to convey five tips for student athletes so that they may succeed in getting recruited for college teams. The NCSA says that the five tips are to develop a game plan and get evaluated, post an athletic and academic resume online, create a skills video, contact at least 50 athletic programs, and to try to make an athletic decision a long-term one. According to the NCSA website, they are partnered with the NFL Players Association, ESPN HS, and LMG Academics.
For those who do not attend Hayward High School but would like to attend this free seminar, call Tiffany Menzione at (312) 624-7437 for more details.
