Recruiting Column: Interview With Texas-Tyler Softball Coach Mike Reed

By Ross Hawley, Playced November 25, 2016

Mike Reed doesn't care about results, he cares about the process. Mike Reed doesn't care about winning, he cares about winning the right way. Mike Reed doesn't care about getting the credit, he cares about giving the credit. Mike Reed doesn't like his team, he absolutely loves his team like he loves his own family.

This week I had the great privilege of sitting down with the skipper of the 2016 NCAA Division III national champion, UT Tyler Patriots. Here is his recruiting advice to high school athletes and parents all over the country.

Q: How do you and your staff identify recruits?

A: Really, there are two major ways that we are finding players for our program. The bulk majority of the identification process for us comes down to our relationships with travel ball, junior college and high school coaches. Our staff works hard at cultivating quality relationships with as many quality coaches, as possible. That means we are getting out and watching a lot of the summer and fall tournaments where these recruits are playing.

We pride ourselves in getting to know those coaches and have them getting to know us. Creating those types of relationships allows them to trust us and to better understand the type of student-athletes we are looking for. Communication within the coaching community is a huge part of the college recruiting process, at any level.
