"I've been coaching and advising players in the recruiting process for over 20 years, and have helped over 100 student athletes with their college search. As a former college coach and long time high school coach, I've always been passionate about helping my players get to the next level, and over the years, I've learned what it takes to be successfully recruited. I've also seen too many young people and misinformed families miss out on great opportunities. We founded Standout Recruiting to use our wealth of experience, personal reputation for placing athletes in great programs, and coaching network to help aspiring student athletes access outstanding collegiate opportunities."
"As a high school junior, ten years ago I was fortunate to have a great coach and mentor in Bob Pipe to help me through the college recruiting process. He put me in touch with college coaches and helped me form a game plan. He gave me the straight answer about where I stood in the recruiting process, and helped me navigate what can be confusing and overwhelming decisions. I assumed that all kids get this kind of advice, but through my own career advising student athletes I've learned that my experience was the exception to the rule. Many aspiring student-athletes are left to fend for themselves in the process. I was fortunate to be able to continue my education at Wesleyan University, and to leverage my athletic abilities to get to a great school. Standout Recruiting is comitted to providing professional evaluations, individual guidance, and the full power of our collective experience to help student athletes maximize their athletic and academic potential."
