30 years of service ends

Marcus Lamar Aaron's curator insight, April 17, 2015 10:12 PM

when your trying to build a sports program that rivals the upper echelon at he D-1 level. At Boise State you never going to have the revenue streams like Ohio State, USC, Texas for example. You have to find other ways to stand out like the Blue turf for the football team and hiring great coaches. You also though have to make sure you stay true to your ethics and not cut corners.

We need to start setting the example for young athletes. Academics before athletics, or is money more important?

Jessica L. Boston's curator insight, October 29, 2013 2:47 PM

This article is about an Athletic Director (AD) from Greenville High School named Jeff Stafford. Mr. Stafford made a pretty important oversight as a AD and allowed a boy for the Greenville High School boys soccer team play even though he was ineligible. The young man was suppose to be ineligible to play due to his grades from the former year. Mr. Stafford allowed the boy to play on the team not realizing that the boy was ineligible. After a couple games were played the oversight was found and the boy was no longer allowed to play on the team and Mr. Stafford owned up to the mistake and later that day resigned. I find this article to be very insightful because I one day hope to be in the profession of being an AD for a high school. I was able to intern with an AD a year ago and I do remember have to go over the eligibility of all the athlete students to make sure they were eligible for that year and had all there paper work in. Knowing what is expected from an individual in that job is a good way to make sure you know what your getting into even if the job description doesn't say it.

Due to an ineligible player, the Athletic Director and Head Coach no only puts the boys soccer team in a position to relinquish five of their wins but it also resulted in the Athletic Director to resign after 14 years.
