Free seminar tomorrow for MSHS athletes, families regarding college sports recruiting process

The college recruiting process for high school sports athletes and their families is time-consuming, and can be daunting at times, as kids and their families look to find the best college fit. If you are a parent of a Mount Si High School athlete and are looking for ways to help navigate that process easier, a free seminar tomorrow may be for you.

The seminar is being presented by Jeff Mitchell and his son Taylor. As many of you know, Jeff Mitchell is a former longtime Mount Si High School football booster club president, and his son Taylor graduated from Mount Si a few years ago after a stellar four years with the Wildcat football team. Taylor Mitchell went on to become a top defensive player for Humboldt State University in California, and is now a coach there on head coach Rob Smith’s staff.

The two of them will discuss how they handled the recruiting process, and how one can easily navigate it without the need for paid “recruiting services”. In addition, the importance of academic success to the overall process will be discussed, and also the different types of opportunities that are available in college sports for prospective recruits.

This seminar will be taking place tomorrow afternoon inside the Mount Si High School auditorium in Snoqualmie, 8651 Meadowbrook Way SE (park at the south end of the campus and enter through the west doors on the Schusman Ave. SE side of the school near the auditorium). It begins at 3:00 p.m., prior to tomorrow’s Wildcat football spring scrimmage. Families of athletes in all Wildcat sports programs are invited to attend the discussion.
