We have scheduled five meetings for members of the Orange Bowl Committee to talk to high school senior football players and their parents that are not committing to division I schools. Five hundred seniors from Palm Beach, Dade and Broward Counties will have an opportunity to secure football scholarships to division II, III and NAIA schools on February 20, 2017.
Below are the academic requirements and the meeting dates in our county. Can you notify the guidance counselors to see if they can pull transcripts for their senior football players?
The participant must be a graduating high school senior and has not accepted a scholarship offer from a Division 1 football program. In addition they must meet one of the three following qualifications:
· Have a 2.3 GPA or higher in Core Courses (please visit http://www.ncaa.org/student-athletes/future/core-courses for a description of NCAA Eligible Core Courses)
· Have an SAT score of 820 (math and verbal only) or higher
· Have an ACT sum score of 68 or higher
All Division II, III, and NAIA athletic directors and head football coaches are invited to attend. There will be ample time for coaches to view the athletes in drills and to talk to them individually about their respective football programs. Staff from admissions and financial aid departments are encouraged to attend as well. No parent participation will be allowed at the Showcase.
