18 Jan Meet our spring 2023 intern!
My name is Jack Hagan and I am a senior at the University of Tampa on track to graduate in May of 2023 with a degree in Sport Management and a Business Administration minor. I grew up in Wyckoff, New Jersey, and lived there for over 21 years. I just recently moved down to Tampa, Florida full-time this year.
In my free time, I enjoy going out with friends, watching movies, playing intramurals, and managing fantasy football teams. I am currently in four leagues so a typical Sunday includes homework, setting lineups, and watching NFL RedZone. Being from New Jersey,I am a big Giants, Yankees, and Nets fan and always will try to catch a game when these teams are in the Tampa Bay area. One of my favorite games I have attended down here was Daniel Jones’ debut for the Giants when they won 32-31 in a shootout. A fun fact about me is that every year in elementary school, my father and I would create a Halloween costume from scratch that we would enter into local and statewide costume contests. In 2011, we won Heidi Klum’s annual Halloween contest and in return, we received $1,031 to donate to a charity of our choice.
After I graduate, I am interested in working with young professional players in developing their personal brands, managing schedules, and generating potential off-the-field marketing opportunities. Although this goal for my future is constantly changing, my hope is that I can work with individuals who are hard-working and passionate about what they do. I am very fortunate to have two sisters and a loving family who support my personal/career decisions even when I am unsure about what I want to do in the future.
I am very excited to be an intern with Knox Sports where I can improve my communication and creativity skills as well as continue to learn about what interests me in the sports marketing/sponsorship industry!
