    Hello everyone, Im very new to the admissions process at USNA
    Im currently a sophomore in High school and i was wondering...

    how well you have to play to get a football scholarship?
    (ive seen air force hand out packets to several senior players on my team and theyre decent.)

    Is there anything special i can do to show interest to the academy and further my chances? Like getting on a mailing list (if they have one) or anything else!
    I am aware I have missed the STEM program opportunity. darn.

    When should I begin to open my admissions pack, and when should i submit my nomination stuff? Whats the earliest I can send them?

    If i have more questions,I'll post em on this thread.

    Rules for recruiting potential varsity athletes are a bit different than for non-varsity candidates. Here are a few things that will probably help:

    1. You can contact Navy's football coaches now. They know the NCAA rules. Here's a link with lots of info specifically set up for potential varsity recruits:
    http://www.navysports.com/recruiting/navy-recruiting.html

    2. Read all of USNA1985's "stickies" at the top of this forum.

    3. Apply to attend one of Navy's sports camps this summer, if they're not filled:
    http://www.navysports.com/camps/navy-camps.html

    Here are a few general answers to your questions. You need to be a good football player to play at Navy. Many of Navy's players have the talent to play in high quality Division I programs, but they're often considered too small to play at that level. Navy has beaten more BCS teams than any non-BCS team in the country over the past eight years. However, it's more important that you're a very good student. There are no "Basket Weaving 101" classes at Navy.

    The application for NASS next summer will open on 1 February 2011 for those who are currently finishing sophomore year of HS. That's the first opportunity to open an official application for those who are NOT varsity athletes.

    Don't know how competitive your FB Program is, but just keep in mind the raw talent of Navy. Its no Alabama, but its recruiting classes are usually 80-100th in the country. Ricky Dobbs had a WR Offer from GTech. Vinnie Mauro had an offer from Wisconsin, etc. Its a fringe Top 25 team, and their roster isn't made of fruitcakes who try hard but rather some very real talent that plays hard.
