Form Letter to Send to a Coach

As Rubio and I told you about a month ago, (Make sure to follow recruiting would be slow in the month of August and early September. Now, it will begin to pick up just a tad and get really crazy about the time of the Vegas Event (funny how Rubio and I planned that out, huh?)

So, as things have the possibility of heating up with recruiting, you should send a school a simple letter/e-mail to let schools know you are interested and for you to get on their radar/mailing list.

First, make sure you send it to the Special Teams Coach and/or the Recruiting Coordinator. Remember to keep it very simply and to the point. The person reading your letter will almost always be male and they don’t need any fluff. They will want a bottom line and quick points.

We created a template for you and it should do the trick. Embrace….
