This College Tech Prep Initiative develops skills and knowledge in the field of business, sports management and marketing, human resource management, facilities and operations management, sales, and public relations.

The Business and Sports Management program at Kent Roosevelt had the unique opportunity to hear from Hall of Fame running back and current NFL Network analyst Marshall Faulk.  The students in the Business and Sports Management program traveled to Canton and the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Students were able ask him interview questions and one of the Business and Sports Management students got a picture with the Hall of Famer . Marshall talked about commitment, integrity, courage, respect, and how those traits led to his excellence on the field. While he was playing in the NFL, during the off-seasons he interned at a local TV station because he was already looking ahead to after his playing career and did not want to wait. He said he has no doubts that that is how he landed his dream job at the NFL Network that allows him to stay in the game that he loves so much.
