Athlete Scholarship Connection Description
Founder Scott Luke has been involved in the college recruiting process since 1989, when he helped his younger brother sort through more than 200 college inquiries in football, basketball and baseball, eventually deciding on a baseball scholarship to University of California Berkeley. A former high school teacher and Varsity Head Coach in Baseball, Cross Country (coed) and Volleyball he retired in January 2017 to focus his attention on the launch of the Athletic Scholarship Connection.
To date his programs have committed more than 312 student athletes to over 200 schools nationwide, 18 players into Major League Baseball, 38 drafted by MLB in the last 4 years (2013-16), 35 on USA Baseball National Teams, and 3 of them on the 2008 College World Series Champions Fresno State. Current big leaguers Mark Trumbo (2016 MLB Home Run Leader, 2x All Star), Ian Kennedy, Prince Fielder, Trevor Plouffe, Justin Sellers, Hank Conger, Sean O’Sullivan, Justin Wilson and Freddie Freeman all played for Coach Luke at some point in their amateur careers. Coach Luke’s first big leaguer and a two time All American at CAL was younger brother Matt Luke (96 NYY, 98 LAD, 99 LAA) whom he coached and mentored from 12 years old on.
Clearly until now the majority of the Coach Luke’s alumni have committed to college for the purpose of playing baseball, however, the resume also includes commits for a Girls C.I.F. cross country champion, 4 collegiate football players (2 played in the NFL) and 2 collegiate ski racers. The recruiting process is about networking, reliability, trust and establishing rapport with these coaches whose livelihood depends on the success of the student athletes they recruit both on the field and in the classroom. Scott brings more than 20 years of establishing relationships, trust and respect in the collegiate recruiting arena as he broadens his scope to all women’s and men’s collegiate sports.
