“Sports Thread makes it happen,” said Roger Craig, three-time Super Bowl champion with the San Francisco 49ers. “So many talented young athletes, especially those in the inner cities, have a tougher time getting noticed by college coaches. These kids now have a better opportunity to tell their story, showcase their skills, and take their career to the next level.”

“I really enjoyed using this app. Our staff has been able to offer scholarships to student athletes off of the app. It’s easy to maneuver through. I’d encourage other coaches to use this app for recruiting as well. One stop shopping!”

“Today coaches are looking for young people that are intelligent, athletic and aggressive. The ability to use social media to enhance an athlete’s opportunity speaks to their intelligence and aggressiveness to create visibility at all levels of collegiate athletics. Sports Thread can be a valuable link in assisting the athlete and college.”

“As a high school coach I find Sports Thread to be the mobile app that provides the missing link between a student’s desire to take the next step in their athletic career and their ability to find the right college to maximize their playing potential. Time-wise, Sports Thread allows me to efficiently help more of my athletes with a consistent approach to the recruiting process. The ability to promote themselves to college coaches while gaining valuable insights the recruiting process through Sports Thread can eliminate the blind decisions that so often result in a negative playing experience. I believe Sports Thread can positively impact the recruiting process for a vast majority of high school athletes and coaches”

“I was lucky to play for two D1 baseball programs, because getting recruited wasn’t easy.  I scraped together highlight tapes, stressed over emails to coaches and called hundreds of people before I landed at UNLV and ultimately Pepperdine.  Sports Thread is going to open the door for so many athletes, because it is a one-stop-platform to get recruited.  I think of Sports Thread as LinkedIn for high school athletes, and I also think it’s going to change the game”

Jared Lee – Former D1 Baseball Player (UNLV and Pepperdine)


“I went unsigned until the month before I was supposed to report to college. I eventually got my shot to play D1 baseball at UNLV and went on to be drafted in the 3rd round of the MLB draft by the Dodgers organization. I know there are tons of athletes out there just like me that have huge potential, but are not getting seen to get a chance to move on and play. I have no doubt that Sports Thread can change that.”

John Richy – Former minor league baseball player (Los Angeles Dodgers organization), Former D1 Baseball Player (UNLV)
