  Information on Samford University football schedule 2013, NCAA and NAIA recruiting, sports scholarships, scores, NJCAA player stats, and rankings. There are strict rules regarding contacts from NCAA Division I and Division II coaches. Therefore, students playing competitive sports sometimes must be the ones to initiate contact with college coaches. Not all recruiting is done like NCAA Division I football and basketball. NAIA college coaches have less rules on when they are allowed to talk with recruits, and NJCAA scouts may show up at your high school games without any notice. College coaches are constantly looking for the best players to fill next year's open positions, and rely on many different methods to finding the right recruits. If you haven't been noticed, cold-calling coaching staff can get you an initial interview. Use your summer break to increase speed, and build muscle mass. It's important to keep coaching staff updated that you are training hard throughout the off-season.

Intercollegiate athletics program information follows, where available. Students must meet specific eligibility requirements each year to participate in sports, and to receive financial aid at college. Most college and university team rankings, along with the latest scores, can be found below. You may be able to compete either at intercollegiate levels for competitive sports, or simply play intramural sports to make new friends.

Althletic Scholarship Information

Samford University football schedule 2013You don't have to quarterback the university football team to a state championship to earn an athletic scholarship. Most major sports that are able to field a team in intercollegiate competition have sports scholarships available. From women's gymnastics to men's track and field, coaches are seeking players to build a team around. That leadership role often is accompanied by a full-scholarship. The best time to begin searching for scholarships is before your senior year, in order to meet deadlines. Schools confirm that it is important to file financial aid forms such as the CSS Profile early in the school year.

There are several scholarship databases available online. With more than 1.5 million scholarships worth more than $3.4 billion, the scholarship search is the largest, most accurate and most frequently updated sports scholarship database. Average players often ask whether there are any sports scholarships available for them. Indeed there are, though you'll have to show a pattern of improvement, and be ready to sacrifice yourself for the team. Take stock of your athletic abilities as you mature through high-school. Information about the number and amount of scholarships can be found in the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS), conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics.

Team Practices

So, you've been recruited, or made it past a walk-on tryout. That's when the real challenge starts. You still have to make it through daily practices, and several rounds of cuts. A college team practice is far more physical than high school, because the players are so much better. Returning players are put through their paces, run drills, lift weights, and do the running that comes with being on the team. Freshman and walk-ons, on the other hand, are special targets for the coaching staff, looking to test their ability. They are forced to run sprints and do agility drills, to see who's ready to quit before the game even starts.

Some players quit sports because they can't make the grade academically, after heavy lifting, running and long practices. Away games only add to the time commitment of being a student-athlete. Others quit because they are sick of getting their butts whipped on a daily basis. What you're left with after the dust settles, is the real team. Those are the folks you lift with, and often live with as well. To succeed in practice, and actually make the team, here are some rules to follow. Sure, you knew most of these, but do you actually do them?

Stay in great shape, even through the off-season. Being physically fit includes knowing your diet, staying healthy, and not overworking your body before big games. Know that giving anything less than 100% effort will be resented by the team. Follow the advice that coaches give you, and it will make a big difference in how you play. Most coaches were star players at some point in their careers.

Online Courses - MOOCs

If a high school student is passionate about going to a particular college, but doesn't have the grades, he or she may try to apply for a degree major that is less popular, or harder for the school to fill. Pursue your career interests, not high-paying starting salaries, and your overall job earnings will reflect the enthusiasm that you bring to your work, increasing over time as you gain business experience. If you focus your prospective degree choice on salary alone, there is the risk that you may suffer early signs of burnout, and be forced to change careers.

Technical training programs are a low-cost alternative to attending college, and you might end up earning a lot of money as a highly-skilled, technical consultant, or by starting your own small business. Massive Open Online Courses are known as MOOCs, and offer a variety of learning platforms, utilizing cloud-based software and Google apps.

An online degree may be just as marketable as a college degree earned on campus. Udemy online learning, a site which allows anyone to build (or take) online courses, is a new startup with backing from the founders of Groupon. Khan Academy now offers over 3,900 micro-lectures available via YouTube. Coursera, another online-learning software platform, has millions of enrolled students around the world. Through MIT Open Courseware online classes, educators can improve development of their curricula, making their instruction more effective.

Business & Medical Job Listings

Although most jobs which pay six-figure salaries require a college degree, technical fields offer high salaries based more on ability than which school you graduated from. Students will impress future bosses more with an impressive portfolio than with an advanced degree, so practice your skills as a consultant for local companies. Candidates with prior industry experience are preferred by interviewers, so you resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on numeric results and personal achievements.

Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in a hospital setting. A 4-year BSN program allows students to further specialize in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health. After completing your nursing education, you must be licensed by the state in which you'll be practicing, given that state boards of nursing each have specific certification requirements.
