A Message From Jon:
The reason why JR Athletics was created is very simple. I wanted to give young men and women the opportunity of getting the chance to play at the collegiate level. I understand the recruiting process could be hard, tedious and confusing, if not educated. My sole purpose is to connect families with college coaches and educate families on how the recruiting process works. Jonathan is extremely passionate and has helped hundreds of student athletes get to the next level. His number one goal is to make sure families have an outlet and someone they could get advice from, ultimately connecting these student athletes with college coaches. Thank you and I look forward to working with you.
