Another amazing effort from all of our schools in SCCâ€™s national sports marketing fantasy football league this season. Overall, our participating schools (40 different schools representing 17 different states) showed a lot of creativity while demonstrating a great understanding of the sports business principles that provide the foundation of our curriculum programs. It is always rewarding to see how well students can apply some of the fundamental lessons to a project like thisâ€¦
Congrats again to Kim Radfordâ€™s class at Blacksburg High School for winning the fourth annual competition. However, we would also like to recognize a few other classes for a job well done with some individual awards this seasonâ€¦ Continue reading
What an amazing finish…without a doubt, this was the most competitive season in the history of Sports Career Consulting’s Fantasy Football sports marketing contest.Â We had TEN teams with a legitimate shot at winning the championship heading into the final challenge…what an amazing run, so proud of the effort from ALL of our schools this year!Â Â In fact, a standing ovation isÂ in order for all of this years participants. Â Students this year submitted some really amazing responses to our sports marketing challenges all seasonâ€¦such an impressive group of kids, no doubt the result of the efforts of some outstanding sports marketing teachers. Â Kudos to all for a great season!
That said, we did have a few standouts, particularly with the final challenge (digital marketing).Â Congratulations to Kim Radford’s sports marketing class at Blacksburg High School in Virginia for winning our 4th annual fantasy football sports marketing competition!Â The Portland Outlaws’ front office crushed every challenge and seemed to save the best for last with a fantastic response to the final.Â Way to go Outlaws!
Also, a really impressive run fromÂ Bob Kellyâ€™s class at Waverly HS in New York (Louisville Rebels), ending up in second place.Â Both the Outlaws and Rebels will be rewarded with pizza parties to celebrateÂ their accomplishments in this competition.Â Congrats to both schools on a job very well done.
Lee Geffert’s class at Richardson HS in Texas (Hawaiian Great Whites) also had a great season,Â taking third place whileÂ Richele Falloon’s and her studentsÂ at Montgomery County HSÂ in Missouri (Mississippi Mudcats)Â landed in fourth.Â The 2016 champions (Karen Russo’s class from Hinsdale Central HS in Illinois) managed to hold off a late season push from Stephanie Neal’s class at Colleyville HS in Texas for fifth place.Â Excellent job from both the Birmingham Bullfrogs front office (Hinsdale Central) and Memphis Soul (Colleyville) all season.
We have a few individual school shout-outs again for the response to challenge #6 and will have some individual school awards to distributeÂ later this week. Â Stay tuned! Continue reading
