George Tunnell

Recruiting Director: Austin, Texas

My name is George Tunnell AKA Coach Geo, a coach for twenty-five plus years in the Austin, Texas area. Coaching boys and girls private school basketball, flag football, baseball, home school, select basketball, recreation ball, teaching the love of the game, winning, and life lessons. Certified as a Double Goal Coach and certified as an Associate Trainer for Positive Coaching Alliance.

I grew up in West Texas when playing all sports was just the way it was. By high school I had already been an AAU competitive 1 & 3 meter diver for three years finishing my career going to the 1979 NJCAA Championships for Midland College placing third as a team. All our dual meets and invitationals were against NCAA Division I teams. During the 1980-1981 season, I was given my start helping Midland High School Divers prepare for district and regionals.

Even though it’s been a few years since I went through the recruiting process my parents and I could have used guidance in picking the right college. Being a Scout for Woods Recruiting and helping high school athletes and their parents through the process of being recruited by a Division I, II, III and NAIA colleges is an honor. In addition to guidance of many high school athletes that have potential to play at the next level that believe they don’t have what it takes because lack of contact from college coaches and a validation of their skills. My focus is girls basketball, softball with hopes of expanding to boys and girls swimming and diving.

Sean Broadus

Scouting Director: Washington, D.C. Metro Area

Sean Broadus was born in Washington, D.C., went to middle and high school in Dumfries, VA. He became an amateur boxer at the age of 13.  That is where he fell in love with sports. He boxed in the Junior Olympics as well as the Golden Gloves on the Junior level. After his boxing trainer became terminally ill, he turned to team sports.  As an eighth grader, Sean played football, basketball, and ran track.

After a short stint on the Freshman and JV teams in high school it became obvious he wasn’t going to have too much of a future in football at the next level. So he gave that up to concentrate on the books.  After three semesters of college, Sean left school and joined the Air Force where he picked up boxing again.  He boxed while in the Air Force for three years which included boxing with the Air Force Boxing team in 1997 and 1998.  After four years in the Air Force traveling the world, Sean came back home to Washington, D.C.

In the Air Force Sean was an Imagery Production Specialist.  For three years he processed Intelligence Imagery from the SR-71 and U-2 Reconnaissance Planes.  His photography experience in the military helped him transfer into videography when he entered back into the civilian world.

This is when sports recruiting comes into play.  After an internship with Comcast SportsNet D.C., now known as NBC Sports Washington, Sean started his own sports recruiting video service.  Sean currently brings 11 years of sports recruiting to Woods Recruiting  serving as Scouting Director for the Washington, D.C. metro area.

Mike Kirkland

Mike Kirkland Recruiting Coordinator

North Central, Florida

With 28 years of working to enhance to futures of young men via counseling, employment training, academic preparation and basketball training, I have helped over 200 men achieve their dream of attending a college or university.

I fell in love with athletics at the early age of 10 playing every sport on the block of our Philadelphia home. During high school I chose to play basketball and football. I started in both earning All-Public League in both. I was awarded athletic scholarships in both as well but after spending a year at Temple University trying to play both, I soon discovered that basketball would be my choice.

I made several stops but ended up at Maryland Eastern Shore. I was voted MVP of the team and earned all-conference honors my senior year. I then went on to play in several different countries professionally. After a short career I decided to come back to the states. In 1992 I began my career as a high school coach and for the next 15 years, I coached HS, AAU, professionally with the SBA and even spent time working with athletes at Seton Hall University and the University of Maryland.

Most recently, I’ve been training and helping high school graduates with an additional year of academic help and basketball skill training to obtain athletic scholarships.

Robert Alfonso Jr.

Recruiting Director: Queens, New York

My name is Robert Alfonso Jr. I am from Queens, NY. My passion has always been around sports and helping others achieve their dreams. I grew up playing all sports but focused primarily on baseball and basketball. As a two-sport athlete through high school, I was afforded the opportunity to play basketball at Queens borough Community College and Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, NY earning a degree in Mass Communication, 1997.

Upon graduation, sports went from just a passion to a career. I worked as a sports reporter for several publications covering high school, college and professional sports. Some of my duties included the recruitment of athletes who went on to play for NCAA programs in the Division I, II, III, NAIA and JUCO level in North Carolina for all sports from 1999 to 2004. In Atlanta, Georgia I continued to build my network and responsibilities in covering prospective college athletes from 2004 to 2006.

I went on to teaching and coaching boys and girls basketball at Johnson (Gainesville, GA) High School, Flowery Branch High School and East Hall High School. I also coached boy’s soccer at Flowery Branch. All between 2007-2012.  During that time, I also helped start a basketball website which focused on athletes in Georgia and then the Southeast. I then came back to the New York region to coach a boy’s travel team.

The reason I decided to join Woods Recruiting to help student-athletes earn
college scholarships.

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!

Todd Clough

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.
