Hi, my name is Brooke Kramer and I am the Financial Aid Officer with Argosy University in Salt Lake City and today we're going to talk about how to get a football scholarship. And the very first thing you're going to want to do is actually start working towards a scholarship in your, say, freshmen or sophomore year of high school. This is because you need to first work on your skills as a football player as well as start working on your grades and it, also participation in your community. When you apply for a scholarship, they not only look at your skills as a football player but they're also looking at your grade point average at your high school as well as what really differentiates you from maybe, another football player and that's where the community service or leadership abilities you've attained while in high school to get you through that. You're also going to want to contact the school that you're plan on attending to make sure they even offer football scholarship and if they do, see if you can contact the coach and start a relationship with him. So maybe you're more likely to receive a scholarship because you know him and also that you know what his requirement are for those types of scholarships.
