How to get a Football Scholarship
Athletes must show that they have the ability to make an immediate, positive impact at their position or they need to demonstrate that they have the potential to develop into a key player. This is why finding the right division level athletically is so important. A recruit might technically qualify to play at a D1 school, but they could be a more impactful athlete at a D2 or NAIA school. So, they would likely get more money—and more playing time—at the D2 or NAIA levels, as they will be able to make a bigger impact on those teams. Layered on top of athletic ability, recruits need to be academically eligible to compete at the school.
Am I eligible?
Having a high enough GPA or SAT/ACT score is the passport to obtaining an American football scholarship. Achievements on the football field will count for nothing if you do not have the right academic grades. ASM Scholarships team has the ability and the experience to steer you through the qualification process. It is an integral element of our approach to carefully evaluate and fulfill your personal potential by tailoring a college program to improve your grades if necessary.
How the American Football season works:
The American Football season culminates with a series of final games known as the “Bowl Games”, which can best be described as the playoffs for college football. The participants in the Bowl Games are ratified by a select committee, who select the teams based on their record and the strength of their schedule. The four best regular-season teams are invited to take part in the newly formed college football semi-final games. The final of this tournament is the National Championship Game, the winner of which is crowned the NCAA Division 1 National Champion.
NCAA American Football rules:
Because of the mandatory NFL rule, that a player needs to compete in college for three years before he can enter the NFL draft, all great NFL players have come through the college system. This guarantees very exciting games to watch every year and keeps the level of play very high year in and year out. However, less experienced players should not be afraid to go to America to play American Football, as more and more coaches try to find the “diamond in the rough“, by looking at a player’s potential and ability to improve rather than just simply at the statistics.
What is the difference between FCS and FBS?
The main difference between FBS and FCS is how a final winner is determined. The FBS has the four-team College Football Playoff while the FCS hosts a 24-team playoff for the NCAA D-I Football Championship. FCS teams can only have 63 players on scholarship, while FBS football teams can have 85.
