About

No Jersey Left Behind

For Athletes – By Athletes.

Being an athlete, especially in college, is demanding. It’s a lot of work. There is a lot that is asked from one individual. Your schedule is GO GO GO. There are new relationships. New life lessons. New things that happen when you are on your own. School. Demanding schedules. Demanding coaches.

NJLB is a resource – but not just any resource.

No Jersey Left Behind (NJLB) strives to change the narrative and end the stigma surrounding mental health amongst student athletes. NJLB provides an outlet for student athletes to share their experiences, identify obstacles and problematic behavior, and create plan of actions to achieve the desired outcome and result. Through our team of life coaches, we will help the athlete navigate through the process to achieve a goal on and off the field.

You have a purpose and have a meaning. Embrace life for what it is and whatever it may throw at you. Life is complicated but yet beautiful.

[and YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL HUMAN]

Let us be your army and stand in your corner. Let’s start a conversation.

  • Building better habits that translate on and off the field.

Post Collegiate Lifestyle

Not sure what to do next? We have all been there. We will help you rebrand yourself after college athletic experience expires.

Building Confidence

Every athlete has a role on the field. We help bringing out your strengths and crushing your goals in your role. Having confidence is key on and off the field; winning games and crushing academic tests.

Post Injury Comeback

Having an injury is hard…but it’s all about the comeback. NJLB coaches help you refocus the mentality of being the best version of yourself post injury.

Habit Building

Habit building creates a healthy lifestyle and outlet for you as an athlete. Through habit building, you will be less stressed, have less anxiety, and ultimately be the best human being on and off the field.

By creating good habits, we can set ourselves up for success to conquer anything.

Who Are We

Our Mission

No Jersey Left Behind (NJLB) strives to provide an outlet for student athletes to share their experiences and any challenges they may be facing as an athlete. NJLB will then help guide the athlete through the process and build good habits. As former athletes, we’ve encountered some of those same challenges: by athletes, for athletes.

We want to help guide athletes through whatever obstacle they are facing to become the best version of them on and off the field. This starts at building good habits. We as coaches can get you there.

Our Values

NJLB values the BE HEART: balance, education, honesty, empathy, authenticity, resiliency, and trust.

Team Members & Founders

Holly Buckel

Former Division 1 Athlete, now in the software development world. Combining three passions in a world that needs it the most; sports, mental health, software.

Allie Walljasper

LSU Softball Pitcher (2014-2018)
Boise State Softball Coach

Mental health advocate to be the army someone needs.

For the longest time, I thought asking for help was a sign of weakness because that’s kind of what society teaches us. That’s especially true from an athlete’s perspective. If we ask for help, then we’re not this big macho athlete that people can look up to. Well, you know what? If someone wants to call me weak for asking for help, that’s their problem. Because I’m saving my own life.

Michael Phelps, US Olympic Swimmer

Know that you’re not alone, there are millions of people across the nation and the world who are experiencing the same things that you are.

Amanda Beard, US Olympic Swimmer

If I wouldn’t have talked about those things to the people I did, I wouldn’t have realized my friends and a lot more people go through them — and they are as common as they are.
