Inside Athletics: September 13, 2013

& Faculty/Staff Speakers, Inside Athletics.

This week, as promised, Dave provides background information and rationale for why EMU does not fly the American flag or play the National Anthem before athletic events.  He refers to the statement that President Swartzendruber has written on the issue as well as sharing some of his personal experiences having worked in Mennonite educational institutions during his career in athletics.  Dave also shares an excerpt from the book Mind Gym that all freshmen are reading.  The chapter he refers to deals with the issue of not getting playing time or “riding the pine”.

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.
