Paul Biancardi Partners with Honest Game as Brand Ambassador

Chicago, IL (March 20, 2024) Honest Game, an educational software company that helps student-athletes and their families with a clear academic roadmap toward college athletics, announced today that former Horizon League Coach of the Year, as well as long-time NCAA men’s basketball coach and now media personality Paul Biancardi has joined its team as a brand ambassador.

Biancardi will work in an advisory role as Honest Game’s Head Coach, leading personalized training sessions for student-athletes in the Honest Game network. The Boston native will also produce original social media content that amplifies Honest Game’s mission of eliminating the challenges associated with high school student-athletes gaining academic eligibility to play at the collegiate level.

“I’ve witnessed too many instances in my career where talented student-athletes fell short of reaching their collegiate aspirations due to challenges in navigating academic eligibility and accessing necessary resources,” Biancardi said. “It’s disheartening because their potential is evident, yet without the proper academic clearance, it becomes irrelevant. Honest Game offers the solution these athletes need to pursue their dreams. I’m eager to collaborate with their team and facilitate opportunities that might otherwise remain out of reach.”

The partnership with Biancardi is the latest in a series of new initiatives for Honest Game, which recently expanded its relationship with Chicago Public Schools in February. Honest Game is already partnered with large school districts like Minneapolis Public Schools, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Public Schools, Cincinnati Public Schools, Cleveland Metro Schools, Detroit Public Schools, Polk County Schools (FL), Collier County Schools (FL), and more.

“We are excited to work with Paul and expand Honest Game’s mission to create even more opportunities for aspiring college student-athletes across the country with his extensive knowledge and unmatched credibility in advising student-athletes,” said Kim Michelson, Founder and CEO of Honest Game. “His track record of placing athletes in top-tier programs speaks volumes about his ability to guide and mentor young student-athletes towards their athletic and academic goals.”
