Meet the Team
Charles Fishbein – Founder/President
Charles Fishbein is the Founder of Elite Scouting Services and has been identifying high school football players for over a decade. His innate eye for those special athletes that deserve the opportunity to play college football has allowed him to earn national recognition with coaches, athletes and peers. Charles has a deep belief that football serves as a vehicle to create opportunities and change lives. “It’s truly a blessing to have the opportunity to do what you truly love and make a living doing it. I wake up every day energized by the responsibility I feel to provide opportunities to those who have separated themselves from the field. We are very proud of our accomplishments to date and are just getting started! We won’t stop until we are identifying talent nationwide.”
