Meet The Class 2011 - Austin
One of the unique attributes of the DeVos Sport Business Management Program is the network of students who make up our program. Our class will take every course together during our tenure here at UCF and we will work on countless group projects and collaborative efforts. As a result of our shared interests in the business of sport, a natural team camaraderie is formed. However, our team is composed of people from diverse backgrounds, experiences and ambitions. We offer profiles of class members to give you an idea as to the type of people who make up our program, individuals who collectively will be leaders in sport and society and will be teammates for life.

Past Sports Industry Experiences: University of Kentucky Football 2005-2009

Reasons for Choosing the DeVos Program: I chose Devos because of the unique combination to provide service to the Orlando community, study ethical issues in sport, and learn from three of the most influential and knowledgeable figures in sport business.
Future Career Ambitions (1 to 2 sentences): Upon graduation, I hope to intern with an NFL organization or NFL League Office. My ultimate goal is to become a Director of Player Personnel for a NFL team.
If you could play a round of golf with any three sports figures (dead or alive, on the field or off) whom would you choose and why? (Examples: Michael Jordan, David Stern, Pat Summit)
If I could play a round of golf with any three sports figures, my foursome would include:
Michael Jordan – I’d love to have a conversation with him to see what drove his intrinsic motivation.
Jackie Robinson – Who wouldn’t want to spend a day with the man who broke the biggest barrier in America’s most historical sport?
Tiger Woods - If you’re going to play the game you should play with the best in the world, and I would like to converse with him about his successes and recent failures.
