How did working with the Perfect Game Foundation help you?

Working with the Perfect Game Foundation helped me to expand my personal Network. I was awarded a scholarship to participate in the Orlando Super Sales Combine. After the combine the Perfect Game Foundation has continued to help me network within the sports business realm. This has been a great experience and I have grown so much thanks to my relationship with Del and the Perfect Game Foundation.

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

Networking is key. Be sure to continue to look for opportunities to grow your personal network. In the sports industry its all about connections and relationships.

"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).
