What is a Top Prospect?
Stars and Stripes Sports is looking for committed student-athletes who are good teammates. Every student-athlete attending college will receive a commitment from the coaching staff to provide the necessary support and resources for the student-athlete to develop properly. We are only looking for student-athletes who are willing to be accountable for their development in the classroom and on the field. There are no politics involved with this program nor any hidden agendas that will ever affect you in a negative manner. However, we have the tools and resources to ensure you are doing your part. You can expect to be tested on a regular basis and to know exactly where you stand at all times. You will be expected to complete daily surveys on a phone app providing the coaching staff with every detail needed to ensure we are providing you with the proper targeted training program. We are looking for hungry and tough student-athletes who want to win championships and who think BIG! A Student-Athlete would choose to attend this event to be introduced to the opportunity to play college baseball and because they are focused on making it to the next level understanding the value a small college in a small town provides.
