Athletes USA Global Scout Frieder Wagner


My name is Frieder Wagner and I am a German native currently based in the USA. I have played at various levels both back home in Germany and in the USA. I played for the youth Bundesliga academy of VfB Stuttgart as well as the U15 and U16 German National Team. Coming to the U.S. when I was 17, I played at the JUCO level for Tyler Junior College in Texas, the D1 level for Liberty University in Virginia as well as the D2 level for Tiffin University in Ohio. This being said, I have experienced several different cultures and levels of football and know the positive as well as negative sides of each culture and each level. After my collegiate career, I became an assistant coach for Tiffin University on the Division 2 level. After all, football has opened up doors for me that I would have never imagined, and coming to the U.S. was one of the best decisions of my life. I know what it takes to play in the U.S. from a player’s as well as a coach’s standpoint. I am dedicated to sharing all of my experiences with you and want to help you reach the next step in your career.

Athletic as well as academic scholarships are much more common in the US than in most other countries. Athletic scholarships are awarded to athletes of outstanding performance in order to enable them to finance their studies in the US. The athlete participates fully in practice sessions with the college team and represents the university in various tournaments and competitions. The coaches’ job is to professionally look after the teams; in this sense, he has a similar position to that of a professor and is also paid accordingly.

For what reasons are scholarships awarded?

For generations, American universities have had college teams in all kinds of sports. These teams are professionally managed by specially employed coaches and serve as an advertisement for the respective university in numerous competitions. If a team has regional or even nationwide success, the media will cover its development. That is why college teams are a means to market the university in order to recruit new students. For this reason, the universities provide the coaches with a budget to recruit talented athletes from around the world and help them finance their studies or even their entire stay abroad.

Why an athletic scholarship to America 

The American College system produces some of the best sporting talent in the world. The facilities, coaching and support networks including sports science, nutrition, physiotherapy and fitness training are all world class. Universities travel the length and breadth of the United States to play each other; it is big business involving, massive corporate sponsorship, fanatical crowds, rich history, and national television coverage. Collegiate sports are as close to a professional environment as it’s possible to get. A normal schedule involves one to two training sessions or practices a day plus additional sports specific weights and fitness sessions within in a normal athletic scholarship. All this alongside a full university degree program.

Athletic Scholarships are funded sports programs that include Football (Soccer), Golf, Basketball, Tennis, Field Hockey, American Football, Baseball, Swimming & Diving, Track and Field, Fencing, Rowing (Crew), Skiing, Gymnastics and many more athletic scholarship programs.
