Not saying that there is an Amari Cooper success story every year, but over the past decade, when it comes to combines/camps, ESS has set a bar that others have tried to emulate, but have fallen way short.
With over 50 years of combine and promotion experience, ESS will host the final event before the start of spring football, and while hundreds are expected to attend, the parents, coaches and players who come out always leave satisfied.
This Saturday, Cardinal Gibbons High in Fort Lauderdale (2900 NE 47 St. 33308) will once again be a place where Class of 2014, 2015 and 2016 athletes have that opportunity to jump on the radar screen.
"There is no mystery to what we do," said Charles Fishbein, President of ESS. "We give everyone an experience. One that will help them and not put them in a negative spotlight."
What ESS can offer that other group that continues to run events in south Florida simply cannot is promotion, exposure and the fact that EVERY player who attends will get their names out for colleges at all levels to see. Elite Scouting Services has numerous clients that receive ALL the information on players who attend.
With every college from D1 to junior college and prep school receiving the results and information, the opportunity to land that important scholarship gets a bit easier for those who attend. It is a way that the ESS people can fully get names to college coaches who will have the chance to evaluate in the spring and into the summer.
"I will not put down any other camp/combine experience, but what we do comes from years and years of doing these things," said Julie Corona of ESS. "It helps us start the recruiting process for some - while we offer alternatives to others."
Corona and Fishbein have built a strong reputation, helping to place athletes in colleges such as Utah State and Hawaii - as well as several smaller schools across the country.
In addition to what Elite Scouting Services offer, parents have the chance to get involved - watching their kids and asking questions along the way - from registration to football competition. From testing to playing football, the parents are huge part of what ESS is all about.
"You go to any other event and they have you stand behind ropes and make you feel like you just do not belong," said Fishbein. "We want our parents to be involved and to know exactly what is happening. That is the reason our events have stayed at the level they are. We do not need to promise them appearances in all-star games or national events. This is about getting names out there."
From a media standpoint, no other event welcomes and boasts more ways that the athletes are exposed. Every fan website is invited along with the Miami Herald, area media, SouthFloridaHighSchoolSports.com and the Friday Night Florida Football Magazine - which is a statewide annual that appears each summer.
Quarterback guru Ken Mastrole will also be on hand with a tremendous group of passers who haves set standards at the position.
The event will begin at 9 a.m. this Sunday. Don't miss out on this event. Register at:
