Brief Thoughts on Armory Combine

I’ll be writing up several features on the Armory Combine over the next week, but wanted to get some thoughts down as we concluded an amazing event.

High School Coaches: Thank you for the time you took to speak with either myself or Marc Vitticore over the past 2 years. There are over 600 high schools in New York and forming relationships with high school coaches is an ongoing process. Recruiting has and always will be about relationships and the identification of players relies heavily on coaches making us aware of players. Prospect NYS is here to support you and your programs. There are far too many coaches to list here but you know who you are. We truly appreciate you trusting us.

Players: We are here to support you and this event was just one initiative to help you during these unprecedented times. I was able to finally meet many of you and was in awe at the level of maturity, kindness and appreciation you had for this opportunity. Always remember those that help you along your journey. There will be a time when it is your turn to return that act of giving.

Parents: Thank you for trusting us with your children. That was the PRIORITY. Thank you for driving hours to help provide this opportunity for your kids. We know this is a difficult time and we hope this event was beneficial.

Over the next year, there will be some innovative initiatives Prospect NYS will be implementing. One will involve film. No, I am not talking about the typical game film we see. We are going to improve and go beyond that. We will be doing some things to build engagement and excitement around HS football. We will also be acquiring film that improves the evaluation process. There are so many areas that need improvement and we are going to tackle them slowly and strategically.

As always, do not hesitate to contact us.
