Dave Schuman, NFLPA Certified Contract Advisor

A former High School First Team All-American, Dave earned a full football athletic scholarship at University of Connecticut where he was a starting linebacker under head coach Skip Holtz. A success on and off the field, Coach Schuman was a Dean’s List student-athlete who earned both a Bachelors and Master’s degree at UConn. After receiving his Master degree, David worked as a strategic business analyst for a top technology solutions company. He later moved to New York City to become Senior Vice President for an internet strategy and web development company. He was one of the fastest rising young executives during the internet boom of the late 90’s.

September 11, 2001 was the day that changed Dave’s goals and dreams. Dave’s largest client Cantor Fitzgerald was devastated during the tragic event. The loss of many colleagues and his desire to help people accomplish their dreams brought Dave back to football. He soon became head coach at Saddle Brook High School in his hometown of Saddle Brook, New Jersey. A skilled multi-tasker, Coach Schuman also enrolled at Columbia University for a second Master’s Degree at Columbia’s prestigious teaching college before opening his own business, Schuman’s Speed School, where he trained some of the country’s top high school, college and professional athletes. Dave wanted to provide talented high school football players from all socioeconomic backgrounds, from inner cities to suburbs, all across the country the opportunity to showcase their skills without bias and to provide them early exposure to top colleges. As a result of this vision, Schuman’s National Underclassmen Combine was born and currently thrives as NUC Sports.

Dave has been the CEO of NUC Sports for over a decade. NUC Sports runs the largest football evaluation set of events in the USA. Through a series of high profile Football Showcases and Events NUC integrates evaluation, recruiting, training, apparel, and media all in one with the intent in getting our over 20,000 athletes that come through each year increased recruiting exposure.

NUCSports.com has become one of the top websites for athletes to get recruiting exposure in football with over 2-million followers across all primary social media networks. Dave’s passion is football and providing an avenue for some of the country’s most talented high school football players to be featured is his life’s mission. This mission has taken him to the next step on the journey to form Inspired Athletes LLC to give college athletes boutique family representation to help them live out their dreams of playing and succeeding in the NFL and life.
