GPS = Game Plan for Success - See their flyer here!

Darnell Dinkins, NFL Super Bowl Champion and current Rutgers University Assistant Football Coach, will come to Lakewood High School Wednesday January 8, 2014 @ 6:00PM in the Civic Auditorium to speak to our student athletes and parents regarding the college recruiting process. This seminar is open to all parents and students of ALL ages that are interested in participating in college athletics. It is never too early to start thinking about this process. I urge all current coaches and high school counselors to attend.
We will also honor 4 of our students that will be receiving financial assistance for participating in athletics;

Maggie Dever-will attend Rutgers on a Rowing scholarship
Christina Sharkin-will attend Tiffin university for Soccer
Chase Miller-will attend Huntington University for Baseball
Elizabeth McIlwee-will attend either the Naval Academy or Seton Hall for Volleyball 

Here is information about the SPEAKER:

My name is Darnell Dinkins, former New Orleans Saints Super Bowl Champ, Cleveland Browns player, and tight end coach of Rutgers University. I am using my coaching experience as well as my 9 years of NFL playing experience to prepare high school athletes for the college recruitment process.
I'm sure the coach hears this all the time from parents and players who say, "You didn't help me get into college!" As you know many parents and athletes have no idea about the process of getting into college sports or even what to expect at the next level. My program works to give athletes and their parents proven strategies, networking opportunities and vital information in order to help get them get into Division 1, Division 1AA and Division 2 college programs. Moreover, my workshop does not just target football, but all high school athletics!
