What Others Are Saying

Doug Christie

In Play For Something, Malte Kramer has nailed it right on the head! This is an ABSOLUTE MUST-READ for any student-athlete in high school or college (and pros for that matter).

Brendan Lane

Malte truly has the system down. With his foundation, I was able to excel in my masters degree earning a 3.55 GPA while still succeeding on the court.

Mark Amaral

Malte truly exemplifies what it means to be a student athlete and provides an excellent blue print on how to balance life, school, and sports while striving for competitive greatness in all you do. I have never coached a more prepared, organized, and genuinely sincere student athlete as I did in Malte and you will feel that as well after reading this book.

Niko Skouen

I don't think there's a better person to teach about student athlete success than Malte. He's received every award there is. I wish this book existed when I was a freshman.
