Sport Science Homecoming Dinner and Speaker Panel

The Department of Sport Science sponsored an event Feb. 17 with Alumni Relations for current undergraduate majors as well as Master of Sport Administration students and alumni. The event included a dinner and panel discussion hosted by Belmont’s own, Harry Chapman, with sport industry professionals. The impressive line-up of panelist this year included Beth DeBauche, OVC commissioner; Debbie Williamson, secretary-editor for the NCAA’s Women’s Basketball Rules Committee; Casey Carter, assistant athletic trainer for the Tennessee Titans; and Gregg Williams, defensive coordinator for the St. Louis Rams.

Each of the panelist brought a different perspective to the discussion and offered advice on how to succeed in the sport industry.

Coach Williams explained we should “treat each day like it’s an interview, always doing the best we can in our lives.”

Commissioner DeBauche told the audience to go for it with future career decisions, often times we are our own worst enemy by not even applying for a job opportunity.
