I am Alex and I am the fall intern at Knox Sports! I am currently a senior at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, FL. and am looking forward to graduating and starting a career in the sports world.

After graduation, my goal is to work with a firm or team in the marketing and sales departments.  I'm excited to witness sponsorship deals firsthand and see how the sports business operates in the business world and outside of the classroom.  I love being involved and staying busy. At Florida Southern, I work for the wellness center as a Lifeguard and am involved with the professional business fraternity Delta Sigma Pi. I am also a member of Alpha Chi Omega, a social Greek organization.

Growing up I have always loved the game day experience and sports were very prominent in my home. I think the sports world brings people together and I love the thrill and excitement from competition that arises around sports. I love hockey. I have dual citizenship in Canada and family that lives there, so hockey has always been a big part of my life. So seeing the Tampa Bay Lightning win the Stanley Cup this year was incredible. I am a huge Tampa Bay Lightning fan and my dream job is to one day end up the head of sales or marketing for them.

Sports will always be a big part of my life. I am so excited about the opportunity to be the fall intern at Knox Sports this semester. This has given me a chance to learn more about the sports business in a real-world setting. I'm looking forward to these experiences and seeing how they help prepare me for the future!
