Former Glenbrook North High School All Star and Duke University All-American Jon Scheyer brings his deep knowledge and experience of the athletics space back to support his hometown of Chicago as an advisor to Honest Game.

Honest Game’s technology helps high school athletes navigate the college academic eligibility process. The startup works with public and private high schools, coaches and counselors, club sports teams and individual athletes to ensure students complete the academic requirements required to play sports in college.

As a public benefit corporation, Honest Game tracks a student’s academic progress in real time so they can meet National Collegiate Athletic Association requirements and access available college athletic scholarships. The startup provides academic eligibility status for each player and can identify when a student needs summer school or credit recovery courses to become college eligible.
