Lacrosse Media, LLC has announced that ReQRuitme, a leader in the mobile technology industry for developing athletic recruitment tools, has been announced as the sponsor for an Honor Roll to recognize players that excel in scholarship and service.
The “ReQRuitme TopLax Honor Roll” will post every week beginning this spring, highlighting the accomplishments of high school boys and girls lacrosse players around North America in the areas of academic accomplishments and community and/or school service.
“At ReQRuitme, we realize that it is important for an athlete to be the ‘complete’ player – on the field and in the classroom,” said ReQRuitme Co-Founder Steve Gonzalez. “To get to the next level of competition (college), an athlete needs to demonstrate to college coaches they have the education and grades as well.”
“It’s not just what you do on the lacrosse field, you also need to prove yourself in the classroom. The Honor Roll highlights just that – lacrosse players from across the country and Canada who stand out in the classroom and on the field!”
High school coaches from around the United States and Canada are encouraged to send in their recommendations to TopLaxRecruits at firstname.lastname@example.org. Information should be broken down into academic honors (awards, high GPA, advanced classes, scholarships), service (organizations, volunteerism) and athletics (lacrosse honors). All varsity players are eligible for recommendation and all information must be provided by the coach.
“We are very excited to provide recognition for the lacrosse players around North America that excel off the field as well as on the field,” said Lacrosse Media, LLC Owner Chris Goldberg, who operates TopLaxRecruits.com. “Every college coach I speak to mentions the importance of strong academics and a well-rounded all-around person as a key in their recruiting. Knowing this, we feel it’s necessary to stress this in our reporting.”
“What’s more, being an educator, I am pleased that TopLaxRecruits.com has the opportunity to highlight these deserving student-athletes, who set the model for others. And having ReQRuitme as a sponsor is the ideal combination because of their strong focus on academics in the recruitment process.”
Added Gonzalez: “ReQRuitme is all about ‘the complete package – not only does the ReQRuitme mobile app provide athletic information about the student-athlete, but equally important in the recruitment process, the ReQRuitme mobile app gives academic information as well.”
The ReQRuitme co-founder sums it up this way: “The Honor Roll on TopLaxRecruits.com is the perfect way to highlight those student-athletes who have earned the right to be recognized as the ‘complete package’ on the lacrosse field and in the classroom! When your athletic career is over, your education will take over.”
ReQRuitme (visit ReQRuitme.com) provides student-athletes the avenue to develop their own mobile profile application, allowing college coaches and recruiters the opportunity to see their academic and athletic information instantaneously on their phone (smartphone, iPhone) or their tablet (iPad).
Student-athletes can purchase a membership to ReQRuitme and receive a $50 discount using the promo code “Toplaxrecruits” when signing up. Each player will be provided with a Personalized Mobile Landing Page that will display a database containing their athletic and academic information, a personal video message, video highlights and coaches’ recommendations, and the ability for the college coach/recruiter to contact the player.
