Brian Buha | Head Coach | Men’s Golf | Lake Forest College

Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

Dedicated student. Good citizen, fits into our College community. Student of the game. There is a lot of blind faith when it comes to recruiting, I am honest when it comes to recruiting and look for honesty from the potential recruit. If they are not interested, tell the coach, it saves both parties a lot of time and anxiety. We only want to put our efforts into those that want us.

 

Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?

I had a teammate that was barely let into our program because he had a 17 on his ACT. Our head coach convinced the admissions department that he was the correct fit for our team…he graduated Magna Cum Laude…go above and beyond, seek help when needed, work on what is hard to make yourself great.
