While current college coaches are not allowed to endorse any recruiting services, we have several former college coaches who we worked with for years, and this is what they have to say about us:
“American College Connection has been the best recruiting tool that I have experienced over the last 40 years. Probably the best part of it is the follow up of honest appraisal  given by Rick Paine on each candidate. His assessment has always been spot on each time I have asked his opinion on specific candidates. Using American College Connection has positively helped our program over the years.”

“The American College Connection has proven to be the best single source that we rely on for information about prospective student athletes. We value their recommendations and have a high level of trust in the information they provide for us.”
Rick, you have provided a valuable service for us and I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with you.

“Rick and his associates at American College Connection provided our coaches with consistently great information about prospects. We could quickly determine if the prospect might possibly be a good fit. Rick responded to my questions quickly and was willing to communicate with the prospect to help us gain further information. Over the years, we landed several great recruits whom we had not been in touch with prior to Rick reaching out to us. ACC is a great resource for both college coaches and prospects.”
