    "I couldn't be more proud to stand behind Shemy Schembechler and the GES team. Having grown up with the Schembechler family, including Shemy's renowned father, Bo, I've seen first-hand the type of commitment Shemy shows to those he serves, and how ingrained the sport of football is in his DNA. In addition to his keen eye for talent and outstanding reputation as an evaluator, Shemy is honest, thorough, and an absolute force when it comes to doing the most for his clients. Shemy has experienced the full spectrum of football, and you may not find a more insightful mind when it comes to determining where you fit in the next stage of your game. "

    "I have known Shemy for the past 20 years. Like me, Shemy comes from a football family and has lived and breathed the game his entire life. As an accomplished NFL scout, Division I recruiting coordinator, and son of a football coaching legend, Shemy has a unique perspective from which he can successfully evaluate and project football players on both the collegiate and professional levels. As a person, Shemy is first class all the way and I know he will work his tail off on a daily basis to help his clients achieve their goals."

    It was of fate and good fortune that brought us to Shemy;  I made the point of telling Austin's amazing trainer, Dan Roth, of Blue Lion fame (in Ann Arbor) that Austin's academics were even more important to us than developing his athletic ability.  Dan referred us to Shelly Kovacs, an educational consultant with extensive expertise preparing high school athletes for the high school to college transition (including test prep, study skills, time management, the college application process, etc).
    In order to determine the schools with the best opportunities for Austin's educational and football careers, Shelly wanted an expert opinion of where he could be most competitive and successful athletically. She had worked with Shemy's father, the legendary Bo Schembechler, had known Shemy for many years, and assured us he was, by far, the best possible person to evaluate high school football talent and prescribe which coaches and programs would lead to Austin's ultimate success.
    Shelly was right!  We were extremely impressed with Shemy's professional approach. His many years as a pro scout, evaluating talent and placing college players in the pro ranks provided Shemy with expansive knowledge and networks amongst college football programs. He expertly assessed how (which position) and where (which school) Austin's talents would be best utilized.  We also greatly appreciated the way Shelly and Shemy collaborated about the academic and athletic pieces, and through the admissions process. We could not have been in better hands and are thrilled with the outcome.  Any high school football player with hopes of playing college football should definitely use GES Advisory Company and Kovacs Connections educational consulting.

    "I have known Shemy for roughly 20 years in this industry and have always appreciated the unique perspective that he has. He has been around college and professional football his entire life and has a very good understanding of what it takes to build a championship caliber team. He is a tireless worker with a strong desire to "get it right" who has spent 18+ years as a talent evaluator at the highest level of the game. I am confident that his unique perspective and experience will be an asset to any organization that brings him on board in an advisory role."
