Many high school athletes aspire to play at the college level, but there is a lot that goes into the recruiting process and playing a sport in college. A national recruiting expert is coming to Taylorville High School next month to help athletes and parents with the ins-and-outs of being a student-athlete in college.
THS Athletic Director Paul Held says recruiting expert Jack Renkens has spoke at other area high schools before, and his information session has a lasting benefit.
The event is open to any area high school athlete or parent. Held says one of the biggest pieces of information athletes need to know is that you don’t need to go division one to play a sport in college, but that anywhere you go, being a college athlete is hard work.
Renkens will be speaking to interested students and parents on Tuesday, May 8 at 7 p.m. in the THS cafeteria.
