  Information about Drake University football coaching staff, NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA recruiting, sports scholarships, scores, player stats, and rankings. Most college and university team rankings, along with the latest scores, can be found in the table below. If you like to play sports, rather than just watch the game, you may be able to compete either at intercollegiate levels for competitive sports, or simply play intramural sports to have fun, and make new friends. For college-bound students, applying to college has many steps, and for student-athletes there are additional factors to take into consideration, such as time-management and strength building. Not all recruiting is done like NCAA football and basketball. NAIA college coaches have less restrictions concerning when they are allowed to talk with recruits, and NJCAA scouts may show up at your high school games without any prior notice. Some student-athletes are wise to delay college entrance by a full year. The extra year in high school or prep school can allow players to mature mentally, bring grades and test scores up, put on weight and gain muscle mass.

Athletic Scholarship Information

Drake University football coaching staffYou don't have to quarterback the university football team to a state championship to earn an athletic scholarship. Most major sports that are able to field a team in intercollegiate competition have sports scholarships available. Ranging from women's gymnastics to men's track and field, coaches are seeking players to build a team around. That leadership role often is accompanied by a full-scholarship. The best time to begin searching for scholarships is before your senior year, in order to meet application deadlines. Schools also confirm that it is important to file financial aid forms such as the CSS Profile early in the school year.

There are several major scholarship databases available online. With an aggregate of well over a million scholarships, worth more than $3.4 billion, the FastWeb.com scholarship search is the largest, most accurate and most frequently updated sports scholarship database. There are many scholarships that focus on less tangible qualities, such as the ability to lead a team, motivate others, and develop new skills rapidly. Take stock of your athletic abilities as you progress through high-school.

Team Practice

So, you've been recruited, or made it past a walk-on tryout. That's when the real challenge starts. You still have to make it through daily practices, and several additional rounds of cuts. A college team practice is far more demanding than high school, because the level of play is higher. Returning players are put through their paces, run drills, lift weights, and do the grunt work that comes with being on the team. Freshman and walk-ons, on the other hand, are special targets for the coaching staff, looking to test their ability.

What you're left with after the dust settles, is the real team. These are the folks you lift with, and often live with as well. To succeed in practice, and actually make the team, here are some rules to follow. Sure, you know most of these, but do you actually do them?

Practice basic drills, especially targeting areas related to your position. Become a super-specialist, and you'll always find a place on the team. Always maintain a positive attitude, especially when you're in pain, or losing a game. Be a good sport, and keep trying. Believe that you can salvage success, and then go out and make it happen.

Although most jobs which pay six-figure salaries require a college degree, technical fields offer high salaries based more on ability than which school you graduated from. Students will impress future bosses more with an impressive portfolio than with an advanced degree, so practice your skills as a consultant for local companies. Candidates with prior industry experience are preferred by interviewers, so you resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on numeric results and personal achievements.

In order to become an RN (Registered Nurse), a bachelors degree in nursing is recommended. RN's command a greater salary, and are responsible for an enlarged scope of practice over LPNs and CNAs. Students will receive classroom instruction and clinical training in a hospital setting. A 4-year BSN program allows students to further specialize in the areas of pediatrics, geriatrics and mental health. After completing your nursing education, you must be licensed by the state in which you'll be practicing, given that state boards of nursing each have specific certification requirements.
