Attend Grad School Free Via Your Sport
I have worked with lots of high school students and successfully placed them in undergraduate programs. Many with athletic scholarships/grants, others simply getting schools that might only have dreamed about attending.

Occasionally I hear from a student who is about to graduate college, asking if I could help find them a Graduate Assistantship so that they could pursue their master's degree.

Steps to Achieving This Goal:

  1. Obtain a coaching license in your sport.
  2. Work as a volunteer with developing players. You can start doing this while in high school.
  3. Begin networking early, select schools where a master's program is offered in your particular major.
  4. Contact Pat Grecco for help.

What You Will Receive as a Grad Assistant:

  1. A small salary sometimes called a stipend.
  2. Free graduate classes, yes no tuition paid.
  3. Discounted room and board.
  4. GA's are part of the coaching staff, receiving
    respect and all privileges.

Doug Hess Doug Hess was an outstanding Soccer Player at Commack High School, Commack, New York, the next town over and I knew his Dad, Bob Hess who was the long-time Women's Soccer Coach at Farmingdale State University. Doug came to see me and asked about Grad Assistantships. We talked, and he mentioned he was about to receive a Bachelor of Science in Business from Elizabethtown College and he wanted to continue on with a master's degree in education. While playing at Elizabethtown College, Doug was chosen for the D-III All-America Team.

I updated his Athletic-Academic Profile, we discussed his intended major, and then I researched and wrote to about twenty-five schools. Doug was contacted by Head Coach Jerry Sheska at East Stroudsburg University, got the GA job and received his Master of Education degree from that school.

After a successful Head Coaching position at Campbell University, 74-70-9 record, Doug was named the 5thHead Coach in the 64-year history at Drexel University in January 2010.
 
I am eager to help student-athletes and their parents navigate the challenging college selection process.
 
Sincerely,
