On March 22, SWAG visited the California Showcase in Los Angeles. The California Showcase is an opportunity for Seniors in high school to showcase their talents to Division II, III, and NAIA schools.
Upon visiting with colleges that were in attendance SWAG came across a university that reminded us that our talents are not simply measured on the field but in the classroom. The flyer simply states that if you do not have AT LEAST a 3.3 please do not even consider applying to that school.
There are nearly 450 colleges and universities in the United States that play college football and if you have the grades and desire to keep playing after high school, there is opportunity for all talent levels. The number one requisite for continuing to play is not your 40 time, shuttle run, bench press, speed, quickness, or agility; but is your GPA in your core academic classes.
All athletes and their families must visit and register for the NCAA Clearinghouse. Ithttp://web1.ncaa.org/ECWR2/NCAA_EMS/NCAA.jsp
