Co-Founder of Game Recognize Game Urban Sports Marketing Academy, “Many kids, particularly at-risk urban youth, dream of
playing professional sports but their chances of actually making a professional
roster are slim to none; however, they can still be professionals in the sports
industry. The academy introduces youth to a variety of career
paths in the robust multi-billion dollar sports industry.”
Trail, Director of the MSAL program, gave the
students an overview of the many components of sport administration, including
marketing, finance, and operations. The graduate students presented their
research on consumer behavior to the youth.

Seattle University in a video hosted on the academy’s website.
