Nick Turchan is a 1999 graduate of Mayfield High School and a 2003 Graduate of John Carroll University (MBA - 2005).  He played soccer and baseball at Mayfield and then at JCU before injuries derailed his career.  Upon hearing about CPOA, Nick was convinced that the program would have helped him immensely had he heard about it during his high school days and was anxious to get involved.  He made multiple News Herald and Plain Dealer All-Star teams, while also earning multiple first team All-Conference honors in both sports.  Despite this, Nick was only recruited by a couple of schools.  As a born and bred Clevelander, Nick is excited to give back to the Northeast Ohio community by helping student athletes realize their dreams of playing collegiate sports, while also ensuring they do not suffer the same fate as him. Working with schools in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga Counties.
