Joel Nellis

High School Head Football Coach - Wisconsin Affiliate Consultant

"I felt it was important to partner with AREN to give our families and players additional recruiting support. Football recruiting is extremely difficult to navigate, especially with all of the hype on social media. Having additional guidance and the information on academics, financial aid and timelines has proven to be invaluable for our program."-Joel Nellis Affiliate Consultant*

"A foundation of Athletic Recruiting Education & Navigation is in fact the high school coach.  As AREN has grown I have seen the immense impact the high school coach has on their prospects and their families.  Joel is not only knowledgeable about the recruiting experience but he guides student athletes and their families THE RIGHT WAY.  Joel has a passion for the process but more than anything he approaches recruiting with honesty and integrity both with families as well as with college coaches.  It is really a perfect fit to bring Joel into the AREN family and allow him to share exactly what AREN LLC is about and provide feedback to coaches in Wisconsin with the benefits of how AREN LLC can impact their programs THE RIGHT WAY." _Dan Fodrocy President AREN LLC
