Liberty Mutual Responsibility In College Sports- Script
Responsibility In College Sports
Soundbite and Script
January 5, 2011
COLLEGE SPORTS PROGRAMS PLAY A FUNDAMENTAL ROLE WITHIN UNIVERSITIES AND EXCITE COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
BUT RECENTLY, ATTENTION HAS SHIFTED FROM TOUCHDOWNS AND CHAMPIONSHIPS TO STUDENT ATHLETE COMPENSATION AND RECRUITING RULES, CALLING INTO QUESTION THE STRUCTURE OF COLLEGE SPORTS.
LIBERTY MUTUAL’S RESPONSIBILITY PROJECT RECENTLY BROUGHT TOGETHER EXPERTS IN COLLEGE SPORTS FOR A ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION ABOUT THE ISSUES FACING COLLEGE ATHLETICS IN AMERICA.
TROY VINCENT, FORMER NFL DEFENSIVE BACK AND COLLEGE ATHLETE, JOINED SPORTS COLUMNISTS, A UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC DIRECTOR AND A SPORTS AGENT FOR THE DISCUSSION.
“During the College Sports Roundtable, we came to the conclusion that responsibility and accountability can be better incorporated into the structure of college athletics and how we support student athletes. Academic leaders and institutions making the unconventional choice to do the right thing and apply a value system that provides for the welfare of student athletes can help us build stronger athletic programs.”
