These evaluations will be made available online and distributed to our college scouting and contact database. We hire college and pro coaches to be on the field instructing but also providing evaluations on each player so we guarantee 25+ coaches at our events. All subsequent stories and highlights written about a player will be linked to the player’s social media profile along with the Firecracker Sports website and social media platforms, ultimately creating a one-stop shop for a college recruiter.
