Bonnie, Wylie and Reece Walno
Reece's goal has always been to play college football. He did his part by giving 110% on and off the field everyday, but contact from recruiters was nonexistent, especially since we live in a small town in South Dakota. We knew our son had potential, but needed to be given the opportunity to highlight his talents. On the recommendation of a friend, we called Ryan Hill. It was a long-shot, given the fact that it was March of his Junior year, but as parents, we felt we needed to do something to help our son achieve his goal. Within weeks of his information being sent out to colleges, he was contacted by D1, D2, D3, NAIA and JUCO schools. In fact, the response was so overwhelming, Reece had to scale down his areas of interest just to be able to manage the volume of correspondence. He was invited to numerous Prospect Camps, Game Day Visits and campus tours. Coaches have even come to the high school to talk to Reece in person. What an amazing experience this has been! In addition to the guidance and support Ryan has provided, Kevin, Jordan and Zack have been great resources, as well. It always amazes me how prompt everyone is with their responses, and that Reece's best interests are their number one priority. Reece has committed to playing D2 football for the University of Minnesota-Crookston, a perfect fit both athletically and academically, thus his goal has been achieved. During our last visit, my husband asked if this would have been possible without SAS, and he was told “no,” as there would have been no way to know of Reece otherwise. Therefore, without hesitation, we highly recommend Ryan Hill and Student Athlete Showcase; it is well worth the investment!
