Deskins Joins TPH Team as Director of National Recruiting
TPH is excited to welcome Jason Deskins to the role of Director of National Recruiting as the company scales its Study, Train, Play model. Deskins will lead the recruiting process across TPH, supporting TPH team members in their recruiting efforts as well as interacting with driven, goal-oriented student-athletes directly.
“At TPH, we relentlessly strive to be the world leader in positively impacting the lives of student-athletes, every day. Bringing Jason on board will greatly boost our efforts to do just that,” CEO Nathan Bowen said. “He has a proven track record not only of building teams made up of talented, upstanding student-athletes, but also of connecting with local leaders in reaching the aspiring-elite student-athletes the Center of Excellence model is designed to appeal to. We are thrilled that Jason has decided to join our mission and team.”
A native of Warren, MI, Deskins brings over 10 years of sales experience to TPH, having spent the last decade providing business-to-business sales expertise for multiple companies in the health care industry. During this span, Deskins has also dedicated himself as a coach and scout in various hockey circles. Since 2009, Deskins has coached with various Detroit Tier I and Tier II youth associations and has served as a Scout, Director of Scouting and Assistant General Manager for various junior programs including the Port Huron Falcons and Maryland Black Bears of the NAHL, and presently, the Omaha Lancers of the USHL.

A 2002 graduate of Miami University, Deskins played four seasons of NCAA Division I hockey for the Red Hawks, before spending parts of four seasons competing at the professional level.
Deskins believes his role with TPH is a perfect match for his depth of experience in both hockey and business.
