For several months early in to 2003 I had been looking for educational and tennis opportunities for my son Callen upon graduation from high school in June of 2003 . I had made some contacts but without any real success.
Early in June of this year, I became aware of existence of University Prospects, an agency available to assist in the placement of student / athletes in post secondary schools in the USA., and contacted Brian Smith, president, to help with this search. Acknowledging the lateness of the hour relative to securing a school for the fall semester, Brian and his people immediately organized a profile of my son for their website, prepared an CD of his Tennis playing skills and contact numerous USA colleges and universities on his behalf to determine what options may exist for him to pursue his schooling and tennis interests outside of Canada. Needless to say there were numerous responses and a great deal of interest generated around Callen, in an EXTREMELY short period of time. Regardless of the last minute situation we were able to secure a couple of offers for Callen to attend one of those schools on a partial athletic scholarship basis. The offers were discussed with Brian and advise offered . A decision was made and a small school chosen in Tennessee where Callen exists today following his dream.
Brian Smith and his company were instrumental in securing this opportunity for Callen. He was tireless in his efforts, informative about all aspects of the process and helpful every step of the way. His personal knowledge of the American college system was invaluable. We were lucky to find him and are very thankful for his part he played in shaping Callen's future.
