Questions and Answers
Scholarship for Athletes (SFA): At SFA, we try to explain to our clients that the recruiting process is like being on a job interview; is that how you view the recruiting process?
Todd Wojtkowski (TW): I think that this is a very accurate way to look at the process. Simply put, it is a job interview because the player is "selling" or convincing the coach/school why the player would be a valuable asset, and why that school would need that player.
SFA: What attributes do you look for in a recruit and why?
TW: First, I look for their academic attributes such as test scores, GPA, classes taken, volunteer work. I then try to get to know their family and what type of discipline they have. I am truly only looking for players that are disciplined, hard-working, and focused.
