“During my 16 year career at The Citadel, I noticed an unfortunate, but common trend in the recruiting process.
I learned of a significant hole in the athlete’s academic support system. I feasted on it during my time serving as the recruiting coordinator for The Citadel. Now, I’m taking those lessons learned and applying them to my new passion. E4 Consultants will support students, teams, travel ball organizations, schools and even districts.Think of E4 as your personal academic head coach.”
