SCHOLARSHIP CONNECT has a talented and specialist team working from recruitment through to administration for our client base. The Executive Director is Jake Winship.

JAKE WINSHIP - DIRECTOR (Lead Consultant Men's and Women's Soccer)

Jake is the Executive Director of Scholarship Connect responsible for Men's and Women's Soccer recruitment and placement. A graduate of the University of Tampa, Jake was placed to Arizona by Scholarship Connect in 2013. In an unusual but strategic move (with the future in mind) Jake studied and played at three different collegiate programs: Yavapai College (Arizona); North-East Texas Community College (Texas); and for two years at the University of Tampa (Florida) where he studied International Business Management. During Jakes 4 year collegiate career his teams finished 1st, 2nd, 2nd and 4th in their respective conferences. Jake captained North-East Texas for 1 year and the University of Tampa for 2 years. Almost unbelievably Jake went to 3 National Championships in 4 years. In 2013 Yavapai fell at the Semi-Final stage whilst in 2014 North-East Texas qualified for the National Championship for the first time in their history (1st Round). Finally in 2016, as Captain of The University of Tampa, Jake led Tampa to the NCAA Division II National Championship Elite 8 losing out to No.1 Wingate (1-0) in the Quarter-Final. Personal soccer honours received included making the NSCAA All-Region Team in Texas and the Sunshine State Conference All-Conference Second Team in his senior year at Tampa. Jake finished his collegiate career 58-18-10. In his Junior and Senior year, in addition to his college soccer Jake spent two summers playing National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) 4th tier USA pro equivalent with Kraze Utd SC in Orlando, Florida.
