No matter how many stars you have, we are here to help parents and athletes navigate the complicated recruiting process.

Meet Alex

My name is Alex Molden. My wife and I are proud parents of 8 amazing children. I'm a former Collegiate All-American at the University of Oregon, a former 1st Round Draft Pick (11th) of the New Orleans Saints, played 8 years in the NFL (only 3% of players play 8+ years), High School football coach (11 years), Author, International Keynote Speaker, and Personal Development Coach.

When our oldest son decided that he wanted to play football at the collegiate level we were too late in the recruiting process to help him get an athletic scholarship. We didn’t know that there is a process that you need to take in order to attain a scholarship. I was still operating like it was the 1990’s. There are certain questions you need to ask your child in order to hold them accountable to their ambitions and dreams. But there are also questions you need to ask yourself as a parent.

By the time our 2nd child showed potential and commitment we were ready. My wife and I heard horror stories about parents spending $15,000-$20,000 per year on coaching, training, recruiting services, travel teams and clubs with little to show for their financial commitment.

The good news is that I eventually figured out this whole recruiting thing. There is a certain process that you need to take when it comes setting your child up for success.

  • Has your middle school son or daughter shown signs of excellence in their ability and sport?

  • Does your child show commitment in their sport and in the classroom?

  • Does your child have dreams of playing at the next level..and beyond?

  • Does your son/daughter need to become, quicker, stronger, and faster for their sport?

  • Are you feeling frustrated because the coach doesn't understand the recruitment process or doesn't offer help?

  • Not sure which showcase, camps/clinics, or teams to choose that can help your child standout?

  • Do you have a highlight reel but not sure if the quality, length, or diversity of skill is what College Coaches are looking for?

Our approach to helping your athlete get a scholarship

Helping them be proactive in the recruitment process by being intentional with everything they do.

1:1 "On-boarding call" via zoom

A zoom call between you, your athlete and Alex. Here you will set goals, standards, and commitments.

Every other week Masterminds to give you and your child clarity

Weekly masterminds where you will learn frameworks of how to navigate the recruiting process, what camps & showcases are "money grabs", and what questions you should be asking coaches.

Highlight Reel Reboot

A well defined highlight reel can help you show off the skills and qualities needed to obtain an athletic scholarship. This is your first impression that you will make to a coach. Make sure you're highlighting multiple facets of your skills

Nutritional Tips

Tips to help you fuel your body for games and practices so that you will be at your best. Whether it's gaining or losing weight the right game plan can make all of the difference.

Social Media Training

Teaching your athlete how to use SM in a positive way can help them put their best foot forward. But also sharing the negative impact of too much SM.


Name, Image, and Likeness is a murky subject within the athletic community. It's important to build and own your brand. Who you are and the products that you could potentially represent along with knowing your value can help you financially.

Tiered programming

All programs are not built the same. There are certain obstacles that you and your athlete need to be aware of. Middle school athletes are in a different spot on the recruiting timeline than HS athletes.
