Spring 2018 Winners

Gabrielle Johnson

Gabrielle Johnson

Gabrielle Johnson is currently a senior majoring in journalism with a concentration in editorial reporting. After graduating in December 2018, she has plans to move to the Los Angeles area to pursue a creative career in the Film/TV industry. As an NBA fan, she would love to direct a sports documentary on the road to the NBA Draft.

This experience really sparked my interest in graphic design and marketing. It pushed me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to channel my creative energies.

My biggest takeaway from this program was that it allowed me to take the initiative to be a leader. It was a learning experience that taught me how to be assertive when working in teams.

The FOX Sports U program is a great opportunity for students to get real world experiences while developing communication skills to work in team environments. My advice for future students is don’t be afraid to be creative and always allow your personality to shine through your work!

Troy Rose

Troy Rose

Troy Rose is headed into his senior year of college, majoring in journalism with a concentration in sports writing and broadcasting. After graduating with his bachelor’s degree he plans to continue his education and pursue his master’s degree for journalism at Syracuse. Once completing college he plans to intern for ESPN and work his way up to a sports writing and broadcasting position for the NBA

It was an honor to work with such great partners and have the opportunity to showcase our work to a network like Fox.

Participating in the Fox Sports U program helped develop my creativity thinking and expand ideas with my teammates. It put students in a real life situation and gave us the power to potentially create the next big thing.

This opportunity has definitely left its impact on me and I hope it can help any future student who plans to participate in the program.
