As a graduate of THEE Renton High School and former member of the boy's basketball program, it is an honor and pleasure to return to lead the next generation of student-athletes. Following in the footsteps of the Hall of Fame and legendary Coach Comer, I take great pride in both Renton High School and the boy's basketball program. I look forward to leading the program to future successes on and off the court, while teaching our student-athletes to embody Renton High School's motto of "Pride, Tradition, and Excellence."
In closing, I am not looking for our successes only to be measured by "wins and losses," but by the growth, development, and improvement academically, athletically, and personally of our student-athletes. Go RENTON!
The eligibility center is the organization within the NCAA that determines the academic eligibility and amateur status for all NCAA student-athletes.
Please click http://www.ncaapublications.com/prodcutdownloads/COUNSELORS18.pdf to access the NCAA Eligibility Center's Guide For High School Counselors. This is a great resource and comprehensive look at what is needed and entailed in being a student-athlete in the NCAA. Please work closely with your school counselor beginning in the 9th grade to ensure you are taking the necessary core classes required for NCAA eligibility.
The NCAA Clearinghouse is the process student-athletes must register for and complete in order to play sports at an NCAA institution.
Student-athletes at the beginning of their 11th grade/Junior year who plan on or hope to play for an institution in the NCAA should register with the NCAA Clearinghouse.
To register with the NCAA Clearinghouse go to https://web3.ncaa.org/ecwr3. Note, there is a fee associated with registration and this process is not necessary for student-athletes playing at the NAIA or Junior/Community College level.
The Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is an application that can be completed annually by current and prospective college students to determine their eligibility for student financial aid including grants, work-study, student loans, and some scholarships.
The FAFSA is completed during the 12th Grade/Senior year, normally beginning in December or January. Note, do not delay in completing this process and schools can be added or changed later. To complete the FAFSA please click https://fafsa.ed.gov and follow the steps for either creating or logging in to an existing account. Follow the remaining steps for completing the FAFSA.
