HOW UNDERDOG STARTED

"Throughout my athletic career, I was an underdog. I was not a big-time recruit in high school but I had dreams of playing college football. I was faced with the decision of either figuring out the process myself, and finding the perfect place to play, or hang up the cleats and call it an early career.

Deciding to navigate the overwhelming process on my own, I gained invaluable knowledge and was rewarded with great experiences and friendships that college football provided. That was why I founded Underdog Consulting; to help student-athletes that are in the position that I was find their perfect school and continue to play the sport they love."
