High School Sports Included in NBA Draft


Jun 25, 2007

As many of you know, I host my own sports web site - www.ncsportsreport.com. This coming Thursday, June 28th, we are hosting our first annual NBA Draft Party, featuring a live Internet Radio Broadcast.

Although the focus will be on the NBA Draft, we're going to be discussing many topics including prep sports.

Dave Glenn, who also blogs for WRAL.com, is scheduled to appear on our show to discuss ACC Football recruiting and the upcoming 2007 season; And Dave Telep, the National Recruiting Director for Boy's Basketball on Scout.com is scheduled to join us too.

You know I can't go a whole night talking about sports without throwing some high school sports in there. I invite you to join us at the NBA Draft Party 2007 on NC Sports Report.

Coming in July... High School Athletes & The Recruiting Process


Jun 21, 2007

So, you're a high school athlete (or the parent of a high school athlete) and you don't know how to go about the recruiting process. How do you get your name out there for coaches and scouts to see? How do athletic scholarships work? What paper work do I need to have ready? How do I know if a coach is actually interested in me?

Well, I'm going to hopefully answer all of those questions for you.

Beginning Sunday July 1st, I will be publishing a series of reports about the recruiting process. These reports are meant as a helpful tool for high school athletes who have questions about the recruiting process. If you have a specific question about the process, feel free to send me an email to stevens@ncsportsreport.com. Below is a schedule of topics that I plan to cover. Please note, this schedule may change depending on circumstances that may arise.

July 1 - The Recruiting Process & The Coach
July 3 - Putting Parents in Their Place

A Different Player in a Common Sport


Jun 21, 2007

If I told you a football player named Eddy Scott was a kicker for the Wakefield High School junior varisty football team last season, you may not think much of it. Well, Scott was the kicker for Wakefield's JV football team last season, and she plans on returning to the gridiron this Fall to compete.

Although it's not completely unheard of, females don't usually play football. I had the opportunity to ask Scott a few questions about playing football at Wakefield, and she was more than happy to give me an answer...

1. As a female playing a mostly male sport, what complications do you face at practice and in games?
Since the women's lockers are not large enough to accommodate my pads, I have to store them in the football storage cage. So, I have to go get a key everyday to get to my equipment.Also, during practices, I have to push myself hard to keep up with the guys speed and weight lifting abilities because they are so strong and athletic.
