Client Comments:

“Our family engaged with Rick directly after getting an immense amount of valuable information from his website.  NCAA rules and regulations can be like the IRS tax code complexity wise, and our son was dealing with a Division 2 to Division 1 football transfer, so we needed guidance!  Rick answered many questions through his website and then we realized we would benefit from the 30 minute consultation.  Rick asked for as much information ahead of time so we could maximize the 30 minute meeting.  In 30 minutes we talked through every scenario, mapped out a game plan, and we finally felt like we could navigate the NCAA waters.  Best news is the guidance Rick gave us was spot on and the transfer was flawless.  Our son is now eligible to play at his Division 1 school and did not burn any bridges with his previous D2 school.  Simply put, Rick is a rock star!”
