Arroyo High School Football Families took time out of their busy schedules to be in the classroom together in San Lorenzo, CA, on a Monday night to learn about the high school to college pathway basics for student-athletes. It takes community to share information, plant seeds of knowledge and help grow our younger generations so that they can be informed and make good decisions. Head Coach Matt Hoefs (seated in red shirt) is doing all he can to help prioritize academics with his football players. The 2016-2017 NCAA Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete, NCAA Eligibility Center Follow Your Path brochure and SportsHopes “Get Started: The Basics” powerpoint presentation were the building blocks for this meeting.

NCAA publications can be downloaded free:
