On Tuesday, the NFL announced that it would, for the second straight year, hold its Sports Journalism and Communications Boot Camp for current and former NFL players from May 12th through May 15th at Bowling Green State University.
As it did last year, the Sports Journalism and Communications Boot Camp will focus on writing skills that can be utilized throughout the media world. And, as practice, the group will cover a Toledo Mud Hens baseball game.
Hosted at Bowling Green State University, the Sports Journalism & Communications Boot Camp will provide aspiring journalist and communications professionals the opportunity to hear the latest from industry leaders; find out what social media options are available, including creating your own blog; and learn what it would take to become a sports communications professional at the pro or college level.
Through panel discussions, breakout sessions, and concentrated writing labs, participants will hone their writing skills in an interactive setting. Participants will build their portfolios and receive feedback and mentoring from top sports journalist, communications professionals at college and pro teams, Bowling Green faculty.
Included on the short list of participants this year are four former members of the New York Giants, including quarterback Sage Rosenfels, tight end Darcy Johnson, wide receiver Derek Hagan and linebacker Barrett Green.
In addition to the former Giants, other participants include Raheem Brock, Tony Covington, Carey Davis, Rashied Davis, Arturo Freeman, Boomer Grigsby, Corey Mays, Randy McMichael, Langston Moore, Moran Norris, Peerless Price, Marcus Ray, Jay Richardson, Dunta Robinson, Steve Sanders, Donte’ Stallworth, Duane Starks, Max Starks and Tank Williams.
In 2013, former Giants Leger Douzable, Ralph Brown and Jay Foreman also took part in the boot camp.
