CEO and Co-founder of Gameface Media Inc.
The University of North Carolina recently admitted that more than 1,000 of its athletes had participated in sham courses and received top grades for doing little or no work. It seems that smaller scandals and even criminal acts by college athletes emerge every day in America. Even for athletes who never broke the rules, they spend countless hours on the field and in the gym that could have been spent in the libraries and labs.
So who is crazy enough to recruit student athletes once they empty their lockers and seek a career in business? We are.
As a young technology company, we go out of our way to recruit and hire athletes. Most negative stereotypes surrounding athletes are misleading -- but in a strange way that helps our company. While some employers shy away from athletes for these reasons, we go after them with all the passion of a running back stretching for the goal line on fourth down.
