E4 of recruiting real talk is down right real. Let it be known right here right now that we have clarified one simple truth about recruiting. You have to put it out on the field, and do what you need to do to show your skills off. This is the first and most important rule of recruiting. If all of your work and exposure show you not performing or having poor body language, recruiting will be very challenging for you. People notice people that perform when the lights are on. This is not to say that all of your hard work behind the scenes go to waste it just means you have to reevaluate the work and consider some changes if playing between the lines, is not translating from playing in practice.
Alright, with that clarity out of the way lets look at the rest of E4. We answered 3 questions from parents in our mailbag section. JC and Trevor can’t wait to get more from our listeners. If you had a question for Christoph Trappe please let us know we will get it to him and share the answer. So how do we connect with you is what you are asking. Simple!
