American Organization giving European Athletes the Exposure & Opportunities They Deserve! 

The International Scouting Network selection process Is a two-fold process. The first part of the process is trying to attract the best athlete you possibly can. But it isn’t just an athletic evaluation. Some research is done with coaches and others with observations. You also have to gather info on the character of the kid. Every coach has to write a recommendation for the kid. It’s as much on character as it is talent. If you found someone with great talent but not personal attributes, they would not be selected for this game. You have to pass the character test.

We use all that are at our disposal. Mostly we do the evaluation ourselves by watching the tape. We’re one in the same. My staff that compiles all our player rankings is also the staff that selects the roster. Our group is the one that created this, so it only makes sense that this happened. It wasn’t that we were doing recruiting and then we branched into this. It’s almost like our people are working two jobs at one time and one plays into the other. We would love to work with more organizations in Europe like the Wien Vikings & Hamburg Young Huskies.We have tried to consult with other ranking services like (, 247 Sports, Scout, ESPN, European Elite, Gridiron America, and other European services)? Why don’t we use are work closely with these organizations? Well we have tried numerous times and for the most part the UA and the Army All American games have a process and that’s understandable. We asked both organizations about getting our European prospects in those games and the first questions asked was can ISN deliver 200 athletes that can pay 120€ and then they have a chance!!! And we told them ISN can fill camps but refuse to charge 120€ per athlete and there’s nothing in it for them but a T Shirt! We know for a fact these organizations will not select European players to come participate in these All American games so that’s why TeamISN was formed. Now European players have their own All Star team. TeamISN EUROPE will compete annually against American High Schools and possibly other All Star teams. At the moment Clearwater Knights and the RICC Knights have show interest in the event and Clearwater will host the event in Florida this 2017/18! For all players,coaches,recruiters,vendors, and potential sponsors interested in being involved in this event please contact ISN staff @


The Reason HS & Club Coaches Matter!! 

Nick Saban railed that football was the only sport left where the high school and club coach still matters and he wanted to keep it that way in the face of satellite camps. Meyer’s message to campers: It’s fine to do camps and get exposure, but what matters most is what you do in high school and what your coach says about you.
“Why don’t you bust your ass for your high school team? Why don’t you become captain?” Meyer said in a video posted by Bucknuts 247. “I’m involved in all this recruiting. ‘Do I have to go to this camp?’ No. I’ve got a better idea. Go become your high school coach’s best player, so when our staff goes to the high school, guess what the high school coach tells us? The same thing I said (to the NFL) about Zeke Elliott, about Bosa, Eli Apple, Taylor Decker, Darron Lee, Vonn Bell, Mike Thomas, Braxton Miller: ‘Take them. They’re the real deal. They’re teachers’ players. You can count on them.’
“For some reason, this recruiting thing is blowing up. ‘I have to go to this 7-on-7, do this, do this.’ I’ve got a better idea. Go become a great high school football player on your team. When (we) walk in that high school, guess what that high school coach says? ‘Take him.’ You know what we do at Ohio State when he says that? We usually take him. I don’t care what you do at those other camps. I want to hear your high school coach say, ‘Take him.’ If I have relationship with that high school coach like I do with these NFL coaches, guess what happens? We take him.
“Don’t worry about (all the camps). That’s all fun stuff, that’s great. But that’s not why Ohio State recruits you. I can speak for the majority of my friends that coach football. That means nothing. What means something is the recommendation of the high school football coach. Go become a captain. If you’re a captain of your high school team and you’re talented enough, you’ve got a great chance of being here. If you’re very talented and you’re not a captain, I’m going to find out why, because something’s not right.”
Camps are opportunities for coaches to get a direct look at a player. Satellite camps or not, every coach values the on-campus camp.
But Meyer had the same message for parents who ask about the exponential increase in camps.
“I have parents ask all the time, ‘Should I send him to that camp?’ Sure, if you have 80 bucks to blow, go ahead,” Meyer said. “Here’s where you start: Go make your high school coach so proud of you that he’s going to tell the college coach, ‘Take him.’ How cool is that? It’s real simple. Don’t complicate things. 

TeamISN coaches get asked all the time how well do we know a prospect!!! DONT BE LEFT BEHIND JOIN TEAMISN!!!!

ISN Spotlight:C.J Coldon of Althoff Catholic HS in Illinois 

C.J. Coldon

C.J. Coldon, the 6 foot 170-pound Wide Receiver and Cornerback was the only two-way starter on last year’s 13-1 Althoff Catholic (IL) class 4A state runner up team, and with good reason, he’s a playmaker. Coldon has received offers from Division I schools such as Miami (Ohio) Wyoming, as well as FCS schools like North Dakota State University and Northern Iowa University. After what is expected to be a very good senior season, Coldon can be expected to attract numerous other collegiate suitors looking for a player that can line up at either WR or CB going forward. When watching what Coldon brought to the field his junior season, his skillset matched more of that of a CB, in what I believe to be more of a natural fit across multiple different schemes. In the right system however, there is very much the potential for Coldon to play WR at the next level, even Division I. C.J. Coldon is a very good football player that definitely deserves to be playing at the next level, and with the proper coaching and progression could be a special moving forward.

​At WR specifically, Coldon is a physical player who possesses good size and big strong hands that would be especially effective as a possession receiver doing a lot of the dirty work (crossing routes, slants, etc.) in an offense that utilizes a lot of short/intermediate routes. He has the size and strength to be able to withstand hits from the defensive player and sustain yards after the catch. He also displays good route running, as well as an understanding of where the soft spots are in zone coverages. Coldon, also shows the ability to high point the ball, catching it at its highest point, making him an attractive option in the red zone.

​However, when watching Coldon on film, there are many transferable traits that would lead to the belief that his true position is CB at the next level. While there wasn’t a whole lot of him playing CB on tape, what was shown on film was really impressive, in what could be good enough to impress DI schools. With his size (6’0) he would be big enough to match up with the bigger WR’s in college football and exhibits the necessary speed (4.5 40 time) to be effective. He also shows fluid hips and COD skills, mirroring the opposing receiver in man coverage. His ball skills are also very good, displaying very good range and reactionary skills to break on the ball quickly and catch the ball cleanly. He shows good technique in ability to tackle and bring down the ball carrier, as well as a confidence that is significant for the position.

​Overall, C.J. Coldon is an appealing player at either WR or CB for college teams at the collegiate level. He has transferable traits based on what he has shown at the high school level and still has his senior season to see his stock continue to rise. With what is shown in his film, I believe that CB is his natural fit moving forward, as I feel that it fits his skills more effectively. That’s not to say that he can’t play WR in college, as there was plenty of evidence showing the talent that he has at that position as well. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for C.J. Coldon, either at WR or CB, and he undoubtedly has a bright future for whatever college team is lucky enough to have him on their team in the future.

ISN Spotlight: AquinasHS Joshka Gustav/ Irish Invasion 

California’s AquinasHS Joshka Gustav was 1 of 55 players in the country to be invited to the Fighting Irish Camp this past weekend. 

From California to Indiana the German football stud stated “I had a GREAT time at the Irish invasion. The first half of the day was a campus and facilities tour which was amazing. UND seems like a great place to continue my education and play ball.” 

“Notre Dame players were showing us the campus, the very same guys we all watch on college game day. One of the best experience was the camp being held in the stadium. Not many guys get to step on that field let alone run around balling on it! It was a super experience getting coached by the ND staff, these are the best coaches in the country. My performance was nothing special but I did do well and believe I will stay on the ND radar!” 

We will be following Joshka and the Falcons close this season! Follow ISN for future News on German Stud Joshka Gustav!!

Mexico Dominates Japan!!! 

With a blowup performance by running back Fernando Mejia who scored three touchdowns, Team Mexico blasted Japan 36-3 in Monterrey, Mexico at the World University Championship infront of a crowd of 8,500.
Mejia was unstoppable gaining 223 rushing as Japan’s big front did not have a game to remember. PedroMagallanes added a receiving touchdown for Mexico and backup dual quarterback Max Villarreal scampered 67 yards for the final touchdown.
Mexico piled 529 yards in offense, 422 of it on the ground, as Japan had no answer for the Speedy Gonzalez speed of the Mexicans. Japan’s star running back Nanato Nishimura could only rack up 13 yards rushing against a big time Mexican defense.

Mexico came in with a plan and jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back. After finally getting things rolling Japan managed to get in range for a field goal in the second quarter and kicker Kenichi Otsuka made good on it from 38 yards out to in the half 14-3.
Mexico showed no mercy in the third quarter as quarterback Francisco Mata kept the O on the gas! 

Meija scored his third of the night in the fourth quarter before Villarreal topped off the scoring for Mexico. 
Mexico will face Team USA on Saturday June 11

SWARCO RAIDERS came in flexing & reach Eurobowl XXX – Raiders win 34-0 against Schwäbisch Hall

The SWARCO RAIDERS extended their winning streak in 2016. With a clear 34-0 win against the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns the Tyrolean not just stay still undefeated, they also moved into the Eurobowl XXX at the same time. On the other hand the Unicorns missed the second consecutive participation in the final of the BIG6.In front of 3,218 spectators at the Tivoli Stadium in Innsbruck the defense of the host did not allowed any points of the opponent for the fourth time in a row.

The Austrians showed from the beginning that they are simply unbeatable on that day. Already the first kickoff was carried by Milton Knox for 96 in the near of the end zone of the Unicorns. One play later the SWARCO RAIDERS got their first points after a touchdown of runningback Sandro Platzgummer and a successful PAT of Clemens Elsbacher.

Still in the first quarter the Tyrolean scored again with a 32-yard field goal of Elsbacher and a touchdown of the same player, who is not only the kicker but also a wide receiver of the Austrian team.
Tim Stadelmayr had the chance of points for the Unicorns but missed a fieldgoal attempt from 4o Yards. Even before the break RAIDERS quarterback Sean Shelton found wide receiver Kyle Callahan for another touchdown. Inclusive the PAT it was not only the 24-0-lead, it was also the preliminary decision.
After the break it was the same situation. A strong Tyrolean defense, no big punches of the guests and more points for the host.

Knox scored another touchdown after a pass from quarterback Shelton, then Kicker Elsbacher set the final score with a 40-yards field goal 41 seconds before the end of the game.

The first goal for RAIDERS has been reached with the win of the group and the first entry into the Eurobowl since 2013. There is waiting now the probably biggest hurdle in European football with the New Yorker Lions from Braunschweig. A very exciting game for all football fans.

“It was a team effort today. I am very proud of the team, “said SWARCO RAIDERS Tirol Head Coach Shuan Fatah.”We have implemented what we had planned. We beat a very good team today, and now we are looking forward to a re-match against Braunschweig. “

Utilizing the equipment you have!!

Every coach dreams of using the latest and best equipment to teach their players. Few coaches have those kinds of resources.

Especially overseas.

One challenge for football coaches in Europe and other parts of the world where soccer is the dominant type of sport is finding good field-training equipment. Even where budgets can afford it, availability does not always meet demand. In Turkey, we have dealt with that problem for years.

As coaches, we must be creative in transforming soccer related field-equipment for the purposes of football.

At Bogazici Janissaries in Istanbul, we emphasize the chute as a key piece of equipment for players learning how to play and stay low. Being able to get off the stance from under a proper height structure is critical in developing forward movement while simultaneously fulfilling the mechanical needs of tackling or blocking. For a proper tackling or blocking progression, players need be able to move their upper extremities while keeping an arch in their back and staying low to the ground.

Supplying a proper chute can be expensive in terms of shipping costs from United States, and not everyone has access to materials and designers to create a good homemade replica. Also, with few teams having a regular home practice field, locations must be flexible and teams must be able to break down and transport any equipment. The mobile nature of practice locations makes unrealistic to keep a chute stationary at a given field.

In order to overcome these obstacles, we utilize soccer goal posts as practical chutes. If we can find miniature posts, we also utilize those.

As a result, we have managed to utilize soccer goal posts for the following drills:

Offensive linemen in their blocking progression

Heads Up Football buzz and hit drills

Defensive linemen roll, shuffle and punch drills

No matter how you do it, put your players in the right position to learn safely and effectively with the equipment you have at hand.
