Connor Schrader’s commitment to Northern Michigan University was a decision he knew would shape more than just his college career, but the foundation for his next 40 years. Connor’s determination to play football at the collegiate level led to his decision to join NCSA Athletic Recruiting, an exclusive recruiting network that provides student athletes with the opportunity and technology to be proactive in their recruiting process. Not only did Connor have the tools he needed for the recruiting process, NCSA also educated him on the steps he needed to take to achieve his goal.
“I am really excited about getting the opportunity to attend Northern Michigan University and to continue playing football,” said Connor. “During the recruiting process I was really impressed with the academics and the coaching staff at NMU. They are on a path to win conference championship and make deep runs into the playoffs.”
Connor has demonstrated the true meaning of “student-athlete” at Lake Zurich High School. Earning a 3.2 GPA, Connor maintained an honor roll status. He plans to pursue a degree at the four-year university located in Marquette, Michigan. Connor helped lead the Bears to the North Suburban Conference Lakes Division title and the 7A State semi-finals. The All-Conference, All-Area and Illinois Football Coaches Association (IFCA) 7A All-Stater rushed for over 1,200 yards and scored 17 touchdowns for the 10-3 Bears this past season.
Connor’s self-motivation and trust in the recruiting process has rewarded him with the opportunity to play football as a NMU Wildcat and earn a meaningful degree that will help him succeed in the future.
