Christopher J. Stack – Founder and CEO
Stack is the Founder and CEO of Guiding Future Stars, a student- athlete development company that transforms high school players into excellent students, great athletes, and extraordinary people. Author of the College Recruiting Playbook
A former Division I soccer player for Mount St. Mary’s University, he holds a degree in sports management and an MBA in marketing. Stack has worked in intercollegiate athletics for over twelve years. Starting his career in college administration at his alma mater as the coordinator of intramurals, he also served as the head assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for the university’s women’s soccer team. He eventually transitioned to the academic side of college sports as the coordinator of student-athlete academic support. The College Recruiting Playbook is a guide for high school student-athletes that helps them identify the school that best fits academically, personally, and athletically—so they can find success on and off the field.
Stack now enjoys using his higher education experience to help high school students achieve their dreams of playing sports in college while also gaining first-rate educations.
“I have seen numerous presentations on the recruiting process over the years, but I can say without reservation this was the best. To have a presenter who has played, coaches, and worked full time at a Division I institution was a huge difference from all other companies.”
“GFS was a very valuable resource to players and parents at the Adidas Blue Chip Showcase. As one of the top recruiting events in the nation, players from all across the country come to our event each year to be recruited by college coaches. GFS’s presence on site added an educational component to our event. They were there to talk through the recruiting process, answer questions, and guide players through the steps necessary to find the right school.”
