In sports like rowing, swimming and track and field, which rely on stats and personal bests for recruiting, and volleyball, which relies on highlights, students have had few stats and performance. videos to submit this year. They now have a way to set themselves apart from the best college coaches thanks to the mentorship of Tagalong Pros.
