Local Athlete Wins National Award

Peter Manu Jr. from Vista Murrieta High School has won a National Athleadership Grant sponsored by NCSA Athletic Recruiting and the NFLPA.  Receiving this prestigious award is an honor, one that is only given to a select number of student athletes throughout the country in all sports from football to track.  The Athleadership Grant is awarded to student athletes who qualify based on leadership in their community, academic achievement, athletics and a required essay written by the student athlete. 

 

"We are very pleased to be involved with NCSA in assisting in the recognition and the selection of young qualified student athletes to receive scholarship opportunities," said DeMaurice Smith, Executive Director of the NFLPA. "Anytime you can identify, help and reward future leaders to further their education and athletic pursuits, it's a win-win and we are pleased to contribute to this worthy effort with NCSA."

 

As a result of Peter’s selection as the recipient of this Athleadership Grant, NCSA Athletic Recruiting will work with him and his family throughout his high school career and assist him in finding a collegiate institution that best matches his academic and athletic achievements.

 

“Our passionate team of 300 former athletes will personally guide and educate Peter throughout the entire recruiting process, giving him the tools that he needs to be successful in recruiting and in life.” said Chris Krause, CEO and founder of NCSA Athletic Recruiting. “Picking the right college is a life changing decision. It’s important for student-athletes to recognize that the choice of a college or university is not just a 4-year decision; it is a 40-year decision that will impact their professional future and personal success in life.”

 

NCSA Athletic Recruiting is the nation’s premier “athletic recruiting network” and leadership platform for student athletes to get connected with collegiate scholarships, internships and careers.
