Five undergraduate students and two graduate students in our Recreation and Sport Management program will head to Glendale, Arizona to work behind the scenes at Super Bowl XLIX, one of the largest one-day sporting events in the world. The students from our program volunteering at the event are: Molly Gronotte, Brittany Davis, Justin Worley, Ani Williams, Kayla Godfrey, Will Crockett, and Leah Scruggs.
This year’s game will be held Sunday, February 1 and will showcase the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. Our students will be on site from January 28 to February 2. The students will work as volunteers with Mgroup and NFL on Location at special events before and during the Super Bowl. They will have the opportunity to meet professional team members as well as a UT alumnus who works with the NFL network. During the game, they will host guests in various venues and possibly take guests to the field. They also will meet with ESPN professionals and learn about how to get started in the professional world.
