A TALE OF TWO SONS - A MOTHER'S STORY

The story of how Michele came to develop APB couldn’t be more personal, more uplifting, but also deeply heartbreaking.

 

You see, Michele has three sons, two of whom wanted to play Division I football on scholarship.

 

Michele’s son Gary was the oldest of the two. When Gary began pursuing his Division I dreams, two things happened. One, a “recruitment professional consultant” came to Gary and offered to help him achieve his football dreams -- for $4,000. Michele was willing to spend the money, but Gary knew that was more than Michele could really sink into a complete unknown. He wouldn’t let his single mom spend that money. And, quite frankly, knowing what she knows now, Gary was right. Neither Michele nor Gary would have seen a return on that investment. 

 

Gary -- and Michele -- didn't have the tools or the time they needed to make a scholarship happen when they realized how complex the process was. They essentially started too late.

 

Neither he nor Michele realized that the process of getting recruited starts early in the high school career and takes many tools and many steps: from marketing, to camps, to social media engagement with coaches and more. The many actions and tools APB can provide you -- right now.

 

And no one -- not even Gary’s high school football coach -- had taught him or Michele any of this.

 

By the time Michele and Gary hit some camps, did some outreach to coaches, and started working on what they’d learned the process required, most rosters and offers were done. Gary ended up not playing because he couldn’t get recruited by any of the schools he wanted to attend.

 

Needless to say, as a parent, we’re sure you can feel Michele’s heartbreak for her son. You can imagine and know the tears she shed when Gary said “Mom, I’m giving up. I can’t get any offers from schools I want to go to.”

 

She was determined not to let it happen again. 

 

So, she dug into the process, combining her skills as a marketer and her determination as a mother to help her son Bryson get a scholarship.

 

And it worked!

 

Bryson was recruited by UNC and has seen his college career flourish as he has been subsequently recruited and is playing at UMass in 2021. 

 

Now Michele wants to share all she learned with you -- so you’ll never know the pain, but only know the joy of knowing he - and you - did everything possible to make his football recruiting dreams come true! 

My experience working with Michele helped my sons’ process of being recruited because of connections. Michele is heavily connected throughout the student athlete world. And that really, really improved his chances of getting offers and his opportunity to connect with coaches throughout the country whether it was SCC, ACC, Big 12, Big 10 and other higher academic schools as well.”
