Rob Stewart

College Scout

Webster, Massachusetts

I played several youth sports growing up; baseball, football, volleyball and even got into rock climbing for a few years. Although I was an athletic teenager I never had the opportunity to attend college because of our financial situation. This is one of the main reasons why I want to help student athletes fulfill their dreams of playing in college. I feel that nobody should have to give up their dream because of money.

When my oldest son started playing soccer at the age of 5, I could already see how much he really enjoyed it so I got involved and taught myself the game. Fast forward 13 years…..

I have been actively coaching soccer for the last 13 years and have spent 11 years on our league’s board of directors (the last three as president). I coached players from U6 through high school, seniors in the fall, winter and spring. I’ve been an assistant coach for three youth teams winning division one league titles and made three appearances in the Massachusetts Tournament of Champions.

I have also volunteered my time the last few years filming all of our high school varsity games to give these players an opportunity at creating great highlight videos for college recruitment. I am willing to do whatever it takes to help these student athletes fulfill their dreams!

Recruiting Director:  Alabama

I have lived in Alabama my entire life except for the six years I served in the military. I was very blessed to have played football and baseball my whole life, excelling in both. I played at a larger high school in Alabama where I currently work with players and coaches in different areas now some 30 years later.

While I was in high school I was All-County and All-Area Defensive Back and a wide receiver and I played shortstop in baseball. I had the opportunity to play baseball at the next level and I was very grateful to do so. After my two years at a JUCO community college, I joined the military to challenge myself and also meet people from all over the world.

In 2012 I formed Varsity Ministries, a ministry that raises money and support for young women and men who want to play sports but may not have the money. The candidates must meet certain qualifications in order to get the help they need. We also share the Word of God with high school students and college students across the state and others, also.

I have been involved in coaching for over twenty years and have had the opportunity to be around some of the best athletes in Alabama. I have coached travel teams and AAU teams for several years and also been part of four football state championships.

I want to see young women and men go to the next level and I will do all I can to help you get where you want to be.

I have been married for twenty two years and we have one daughter in college majoring in physical education and my wife is an elementary school principal. I look forward to being part of Woods Recruiting and seeing the athletes get what they deserve through hard work.

Destiny Pemberton

Destiny Pemberton:  SG 5’8” 145lbs. Class of 2020

Harker Heights High School in Killeen, Texas
Academics:  GPA: 4.0
Potential Major: Biology

Destiny is a versatile player with good court vision and a high basketball IQ. She knows how to create space on the floor, with and without the ball in her hands.   Defensively, she reads the floor like a football defensive back which leads to creating plays for her teammates. She can play in a system that requires man to man defensive skills and possesses good lateral movement defensively (keeps ball-handler in front of her). Offensively, she can shoot from three point range and can finish at the rim.

Destiny loves the game of basketball and does not want to stop after high school. She has always loved being a student athlete and dreams of playing in college.  This has been a goal of hers since she started playing basketball in the 7th grade.

Destiny is a play-maker and a leader. If you need clarification, you can ask her coaches and teammates. Destiny was asked about her best game and she said, “The best game I played was very high energy and fast-paced. My teammates and I were all in sync and the ball was distributed well. I got 15 points and 7 assists. It seemed like all of my teammates were in a rhythm and scoring was across the board.”  Notice that she mentioned her teammates twice when speaking of her best game.

Destiny does not really have a dream school, but wishes to attend a school that has a good academic and athletic program.

Recruiting Intangibles:
1. Intensity
2. Energy Giver
3. Unselfish
4. Court Awareness
5. Leadership

Final Thoughts:

“She believed she could, and so she did.”

LaMar Linton

LaMar Linton

Recruiting Director:  Virginia Beach, Virginia

My name is LaMar Linton and I was born and raised in Abbeville, Louisiana. I wanted nothing more than to play sports growing up and I played every sport that my school offered. I joined the United States Army at 17 and spent most of my time serving my country. When I retired from the military I started coaching youth sports: girl’s softball, co-ed flag football, boy’s tackle football, and youth soccer.

In most of these seasons we went undefeated. It was truly a passion and a reward watching the children learn and achieve a win with their team, and even with a loss it was always a teachable moment. With over 10 years of coaching experience, my passion is getting the student athletes and their families to understand the transition into college. Also, to educate both the student athlete and his or her parents.
