Meet the Class of 2014: Nathan Kinkopf

Each fall, the DeVos Program welcomes a new group of enthusiastic, socially responsible, and productive young sport business professionals into its family. In an ongoing series, we will be highlighting the students of the Class of 2014. Welcome to DeVos!

1. Name: Nate Kinkopf

2. Hometown: Euclid, OH

3. Undergraduate School & Major: The Ohio State University - Sports Management, Business minor

4. Previous Experience in Sports Industry: Facility ops and membership services at the Recreation and Physical Activity Center, OSU's main campus rec facility

5. Current GA or Internship: Graduate Assistant for The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport (TIDES)

6. Why did you choose the DeVos Program? Core values, stresses good relationships/teamwork, and the prestige of our Directors

7. Career Aspirations: I would like to work in collegiate athletic administration as an AD one day. I would like to help develop student athletes and have a positive effect on their career goals.

8. If you could have any superpower, which one would you choose and why? I would want to be able to teleport (if that's a super power), so I could get to all the Buckeyes and Browns games and back this fall.

9. If you could trade jobs with anyone in the world, who would it be and why? I would trade jobs with whoever wins the Presidency this fall so that I could abolish the two-party system and try to restore some value to the U.S. dollar before it is literally worth nothing. If that's too political, I would like to trade with Gene Smith so I could run one of the greatest athletic departments in the country (at clearly the greatest university in the country).
