"LOVE YOUR PROGRAM! FIRST CLASS TREATMENT OF PLAYERS AND YOU ARE PUSHING THEM TO BE THEIR BEST. AS ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER ONCE SAID, "I'LL BE BACK!"
ESPN’s Director of Recruiting
FCP is dedicated to improving every year to provide our players with the best experience possible. We were one of the first programs in Florida to adopt a luxury-style bus as our primary transportation. Furthermore, we were the first program in Florida to invite ESPN to our campus and were honored when they accepted. Paul Biancardi, ESPN’s National Director of Recruiting, is well-known for his work. He has been seen on TV interviewing top 5 prospects during their college commitments and sharing basketball tips on Twitter that he learned from Hall of Fame Coach Rick Majerus. If you’re a player and you’re not following him on Twitter, it’s a great idea to do so. Not only will it benefit your recruiting, but you can also learn from his vast basketball knowledge.
We invited Coach B to spend a few days with us to teach our players some drills and concepts that he has accumulated over his 35 years in college basketball. He also spoke to our players about the best ways to handle recruiting, what coaches at the next level – especially D1- are looking for, and how to approach each day of FCP to maximize improvement.
In addition, Coach B visited all of our residences and facilities. This was one of the most beneficial aspects of his visit because he visits many campuses during the year for tours. We were excited to hear about his level of excitement for our program. We will have him back in the future and look forward to his evaluation and growth of our program. Thank you Coach B and see you soon!
