Based on numerous requests in recent weeks, I’m now accepting pre-orders for the 2012 Rookie Scouting Portfolio. Available for download April 1, I am unofficially through with the game study phase of my analysis. I have a few more games of specific players I want to review, but it’s time to put the book together.

You can also purchase and immediately download past issues of the RSP (2006-2011) at the same link. Thanks to my friend, Mike MacGregor who helped me get the purchase area set up during my busiest time of the year.

Remember, 10 percent of my 2012 sales will be going to the non-profit Darkness to Light. The organization is committed to eliminating sexual abuse through community education. They have excellent awareness and prevention programs. I have met my share of adult survivors of sexual abuse. Whether you know it or not, so have you. It’s a difficult path that can wreak havoc in ways that aren’t even obvious to the victim for years after the act(s).

If you just prefer to donate directly - I encourage you to do so.
