Score a Touchdown With NFL Scholarships

Do you know why I love August so much? It’s not because the kids finally return to school or the weather starts to cool. No, I get excited because college and professional football is back. There’s no place I’d rather be on a Sunday afternoon than a packed football stadium cheering on my favorite team. It’s like a trip to Disneyland for adults. I can paint my face, wear a costume, and eat a ton of food that’s not good for me. Even when my team has a dismal season (and as a Jacksonville Jaguar fan, I’ve had plenty of those), I still support the organization and its players. I’m definitely not a bandwagon fan; through thick and thin, I bleed teal. Why? Few people realize just how much the 32 NFL teams and many of their players give back to local communities. You always hear about the arrests for bad behavior or the stupid remarks made on social media, but rarely do you see a story about the thousands of dollars they give annually to help students go to college. Here are just a few examples of players who are giving back to their communities.

How to Score Athletic Scholarships

ScholarshipExperts.com recently published an infographic, “Athletic Scholarships: Debunking the Top 5 Myths About the Elusive Sports Scholarship,” which does a great job of analyzing many of the misconceptions about winning athletic scholarships. For example, did you know that full-ride, athletic scholarships are not available for students in every sport, or that less than two percent of all high school athletes are even offered a sports scholarship? For those who are lucky enough to earn an athletic scholarship, the average amount typically falls somewhere between $2,000 and $10,400 per year. That’s hardly enough money to make a dent in your college expenses at an NCAA school. Does this mean you should give up your dream of playing college-level sports or forget about pursuing athletic scholarships? Of course not! You just have to be smart and know how to give yourself an advantage. Here are a few tips to consider if you want to score athletic scholarships.

Students Can ‘Strike’ it Rich With Bowling Scholarships

Bowling Scholarships When most people think about sports scholarships, they probably think about football, basketball, or baseball. Although it is more common for colleges to provide financial aid to athletes who participate in these sports, there are several colleges and organizations that provide awards for a different type of athlete. I’m talking about students who have spent their lives chasing the elusive ‘perfect game’ and those who can get a ‘turkey’ or a ‘hambone’ on a consistent basis. You won’t find these athletes in the pool or on a court; they prefer to challenge themselves indoors, avoiding goal posts at all costs. Who are these atypical athletes? They’re bowlers! It may come as a surprise, but students who participate in sanctioned bowling leagues have access to several athletic scholarships, especially those who are skilled at the sport. Here are just a few of the many college scholarships available to bowlers.

Physical activity not only helps you control your weight, but also helps improve your mental health and mood. There can also be an additional benefit to participating in sports – scholarships! Most colleges offer an array of sports scholarships, with most going to football, basketball and baseball players.
