Stewart Brown is a high school soccer coach and a former men's and women’s collegiate soccer coach, athletic trainer, and physical education professor. He won Coach of the Year for both his men's and women’s programs. He lives in Dallas, Texas.From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up—In this nuts-and-bolts guide, Brown offers candid advice about a very competitive process that focuses as much on eligibility (academics) as on athletic prowess. Coaches Debbie Southern (Furman University), John Cossaboon (Gonzaga University), and others tell readers what they look for in a student athlete. Citing passion for the game, ability to balance academics with sports, and willingness to learn, it is clear that athleticism is only part of the equation. The prospective student-athlete (PSA) will find NCAA timelines and visiting rules (which vary by division), scholarships by sport, and more. Chapters contain an outlined narrative in which bulleted information, charts and tables, and glossaries are integrated. Real-life successes and mix-ups appear throughout, including that of "Liz," a field hockey player who was dropped from recruitment because her email address contained her birth date, "420," a popular drug reference. Not limited to the recruitment process, the final chapters offer team rules and general college advice.—Vicki Reutter, Cazenovia High School, NY
