Player Sports Portfolios

A player sports portfolio is important for players who are interested in playing college sports and applying for sports scholarships. It’s never too early or late to create a portfolio. Beginning one as a freshman or sophomore is a good idea, in that a player can show improvement over the years, as well as highlight important plays. Also, it is good to keep in mind that scholarships can be won from small schools as well as large.
