Inside Athletics: December 28, 2012

& Faculty/Staff Speakers, Inside Athletics.

This week Dave reviews the actions and discussions at the recent ODAC Board of Directors meeting held in the beginning of December. He gives highlights of the various sport committee reports as well as the discussion held on the issue of establishing conference wide eligibility standards. This issue has been raised due to several reports over the past number of years of student athletes competing for ODAC schools after they didn’t qualify academically at Division I or II institutions. Dave is also joined by Britten Olinger, assistant track and field coach to talk about the role of an assistant coach and the strategies that the coaching staff are implementing to grow the track and field program.

Inside Athletics is a weekly podcast hosted by Director of Athletics, Dave King. The podcast offers a synopsis of what is happening in EMU athletics, but also delves deeper into how athletics at EMU shapes lives and enhances college educations by positively impacting an athlete’s understanding of self, others, and God. Sports Information Director James De Boer is a regular guest with EMU coaches and athletes making appearances as well.
