If your best path to college is through athletics, the competition is fierce and ever-evolving.

For high school athletes there is no greater achievement than to earn an NCAA Division I scholarship. Division I is the highest level of intercollegiate sports in the United States of America, having the most fully paid scholarships and often times a college football or basketball experience that rivals the experience of playing at the professional level. Because a larger number of scholarships are offered, we recommend aspire to achieve this level of success. Relieving your family (and yourself) from the financial burden of college tuition and having the opportunity to earn a degree by playing the sport you love is gold.

Wondering if you have what it takes to go D1? STOP! If you made it here, you have what it takes!

Start building a support system at school and home. Playing at the Division 1 level is no easy feat. It is virtually impossible to play a Division I sport without the help and support of others. Proclaim your future and ask the people you love to help you shift the recruiting tides in your favor. If you find you aren't receiving the support you need, please consider joining one of our free live webinars or taking one of our online courses here.

When in doubt, send us an email:

Future so bright.

By informing, igniting and inspiring all facets of the Division I recruiting process - athletes, parents, trainers, coaches, supporters and fans of high school sports, the Future of D1 answers this question and many others you'll have on your path to a Division I scholarship opportunity.

No two paths to a Division I scholarship are alike so how does an athlete end up on the recruiting radar?

In high school, a student's performance athletically directly impacts their chances of being recruited to play a college sport. It is then in college where an athlete's performance directly impacts their chances of playing their sport professionally. Football requires at least 3 years of college before declaring for the NFL, with the highest valued prospects coming from Division I programs, the Future of D1 is the future of the NFL.

No matter what stage of the process you’re in, what happens in the four years before an athlete signs a National Letter of Intent (NLI) is information only accessible to a chosen few. We're here to change that for the aspiring many. We're here to help improve your chances to not only attend a D1 college or university but play at the Division I level.

Division One football is a land where only dawgs are allowed.

If you're a DB, know a #DB, parent, #coach or train a DB, make it a point to tune-in to our interview with Victor Rogers of The DB LAB. If #FIXMYDB were a person, it would undoubtedly be him. You better know a dawg when you see one and Coach Vic's bark lets you know up front he's the leader of the pack. Wideouts fear DBs trained by him and with good reason - he trains highly-effective DBs. But not just any DB - DAWGS.

Simply being "a DAWG" isn't enough. Being THAT DAWG is what it takes to go #D1 and stay there. The world of sports has changed for everyone but when we get back to it, you can be sure college coaches are prioritizing the acquisition of pure bred dawgs. It really doesn't matter if you play golf, #football, baseball, softball, basketball, volleyball, or row. #College coaches aren't going to put their jobs on-the-line for athletes who don't come in ready to eat.

This #NCAA scholarship game is all too real. And with COVID-19 financially breaking families by the second, playing a sport to earn a #tuitionfree college experience is going to be a path athletes and their families are forced to explore. Understanding where you are in the fight (recruiting process) right now is HUGE! Vic gives athletes steps they can take to improve their chances to go D1.

We discuss:

1. What you need to do TODAY to stay in (or jump into) the pack, the best way to get in front of college coaches if you attend a lowly recruited high school or live in a rarely recruited geography.

2. How your coach can help get you recruited.

3. Creating a plan and working the plan - as a family.

4. Moves to make if the college you chose isn't working for you.

5. Improving your chances of getting on the field.

6. Ranking systems ( , - Why athletes shouldn't rely on them (college coaches don't).

7. BEFORE transferring high schools or entering the NCAA Transfer Portal do this...
