SMTSU Member Spotlight: Paul Innocenti

Paul Innocenti is a freshman in Drexel University's Sport Management program.  He is from Alexandria, New Jersey, which is about an hour away from Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Paul comes to Drexel with dreams of working in the sports industry.  With his favorite sport being football, his favorite professional sports team, and an interest in law and front office operations being the Chicago Bears, it makes perfect sense that Paul's dream job is to one day become the general manager of his beloved Bears.  He is well on his way too, already with experience as a youth basketball referee.

Do not think that Paul is only about the Bears, though.  His favorite athlete is Josh Freeman of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The reason that Paul wants to get into the sport management field is because he likes that it offers a wide variety of job opportunities.  It is important to remember all of the jobs that one can hold in the sports industry, and keeping your options open is the best way to break in.

Everybody please welcome Paul Innocenti to the Sport Management Student Union!
