Journalism professors will be participating in the first-ever Sports Journalism and Communications Boot Camp for the National Football League. The program, designed to train players for post-NFL careers in sports journalism and communications, will be held on BGSU’s campus from May 13-16. Dr. Kathy Bradshaw, Dr. Catherine Cassara, Dr. Jim Foust, Dr. Terry Rentner and Kelly Taylor will oversee sessions on writing and media production.
The boot camp is part of the Richard A. Maxwell Sport Media Project. Maxwell is a graduate of BGSU’s journalism program and retired as the NFL’s senior director of broadcasting in 2006. 24 current and retired NFL players are scheduled to attend the program.
