How did working with the Perfect Game Foundation help you?

The Perfect Game Foundation has helped me tremendously by creating new opportunities for my future career in graphic design. When I was introduced to Del Wilber, he immediately helped me with my quest to find the right internship that would benefit my career and sharpen my abilities. His willingness to get to know me and help me through the entire process has been both rewarding and educating. Working with Del and the Perfect Game Foundation has allowed me to gain experience in the job hunting process and also has provided me with new business connections.

What advice would you pass on (pay forward!) to others who aspire to work in sports?

Start looking and contacting businesses way in advance! It is tough to get a response sometimes, but remember, “the squeaky wheel gets the grease.”

"There is no substitute for Excellence – not even success. Success is tricky, perishable and often outside our control; the pursuit of success makes a poor cornerstone, especially for a whole personality. Excellence is dependable, lasting and largely an issue within our own control; pursuit of excellence, in and for itself, is the best of foundations,” The Heart of the Order, by Thomas Boswell (Doubleday, 1989).
