Benefits for Staff and Players
Abbott has to wear many hats at club New Lenox Lightning. In addition to being a Director and Head Coach, Abbott is the club’s Recruiting Coordinator.
The role of Recruiting Coordinator for six teams cannot be adequately fulfilled without SportsRecruits. There is too much work to do for too many athletes.
“I can’t tell you how much time I will save by being able to access every interaction each athlete has with each college,” said Abbott.
What is Abbott particularly excited about?
“The organization, the ease of accessibility of recruiting information, and the accountability of the athlete,” said Abbott about the benefits to players of the platform. “SportsRecruits allows our athletes to do ‘their part,’ while keeping me informed of their interactions with college coaches!”
“The updated contact information is invaluable,” he added.
“We have six teams using this platform, and SportsRecruits streamlines all recruiting contact between athlete and college coach. That’s so important to me!”

Importantly, because SportsRecruits works on Abbott’s phone, the platform unshackles Abbott from his desk.
“I am so excited that I can access this information on my mobile phone while on the road at a tournament.”
“Coach Abbott is a passionate advocate for his players,” said SportsRecruits Director, Patrick McAnaney. “SportsRecruits amplifies that passion and effort, and it will make the Lightning’s efforts more productive and efficient.”
