Why I chose Belmont's Sports Administration Program
: As an undergrad of Belmont, I’ve appreciated its growth over the years.  The program has tremendously expanded and they really care about building relationships throughout the sporting community.  Through this program, I have a great opportunity to have a career with a reputable organization!

Sporting hero: Phil Jackson; Coach of the Los Angeles Lakers.  He’s a low-profile celebrity that knows how to win championships, but his loyalty to his team is most recognizable.  Also, he understands it is not about him.  He knows there is a higher being which he gives God all the glory.
