Troy University has been a tremendous blessing in my life. After playing two seasons at Iowa Western Community College, Troy offered me a scholarship to continue my football career. The last two football seasons yielded me opportunities that I could only dream of, playing in ACC, Big Ten, and SEC stadiums filled with 80,000+ screaming fans (NC State, Wisconsin, Georgia, Miss St.).
Upon graduation and out of eligibility, I applied and was fortunate enough to receive a graduate assistant (GA) position in the Troy Athletic Ticket Office. This GA position allowed me to pursue my graduate degree in Sport and Fitness Management while gaining valuable work experience. I am excited for the upcoming football season and optimistic about the chances of going to a bowl game!
My long term goal is to become an athletics director at the Division I level. I would love to work in development or ticketing after completing my Master’s degree.
