Balancing College & Sports Internships

Part One:

I currently work for Spurs Sports & Entertainment as a marketing intern (I help out with the Snap Chat account at @SanAntonioFC as well as taking pictures and videos for the team)for the new USL San Antonio Football Club which is basically owned by the Spurs. This is a soccer team that hopes to become a Major League Soccer team in the future.
~Here are some exclusive pictures that I captured for the San Antonio Football Club. We are very excited that this week is the first game for the regular season, and April 9th will be the home opener at the Toyota Field!

~You can check out the San Antonio Football Club at their website http://sanantoniofc.com/   Twitter @SanAntonioFC   Instagram @SanAntonioFC Snapchat @SanAntonioFC Facebook @San Antonio FC

Part Two:

I have another internship with Time Warner Cable News for the San Antonio location. Part of the internship allows me to attend a wide range of sports events. For example I can go to all the Spurs home games… yes I’m beyond blessed considering they are the Spurs and will most likely be in the NBA Championship series this year.
Here are some Exclusive pictures I have captured this year with TWC News. Enjoy! P.s. I went to the Biggest regular season game in the history of the NBA (Warriors at Spurs 3/19/16). Yes, I will also be going to the NBA playoff games when the Spurs are home (pretty amazing).

I hope you have a GRAND day and don’t forget to watch the Final Four in March Madness this weekend!

*Final 4 is in Houston, Texas at the NRG Stadium (Representing Texas :))
The first game will start at 5:00 p.m. with #2 Villanova Wildcats vs. #2 Oklahoma Sooners, and game 2 will start at 7:50 p.m. featuring the #1 North Carolina Tar Heels vs. #10 Syracuse Orangemen. Both games will be televised on TBS).

Until The Next Time,

  • Splurge A Little

    ||Save up/work that extra hour/plan your budget||

    ||life is short/don’t miss out on having the time/experience of your life/ tip—instead of indulging in materialism indulge in sports||

  • Invest In Your happiness

    ||every sports fan knows there is no better feeling than having your team win a huge game— go be with fans at a crazy jam packed stadium and create new memories||

  • LaMarcus Aldridge (the big talk of the free-agency) signed with the Spurs. His deal will be a four-year maximum contract worth more than $80 million, with an opt-out after the third year, a source told ESPN’s Marc Stein.
    Spurs forward Kyle Anderson, playing in summer league for the team said that Aldridge signing with the Spurs– “That’s great news, great news. He’s a dominant post presence. He can score off either shoulder; can score out to 19 feet. He’s a great passer, very unselfish. So that fits in perfect with the system here.”
  • David West signed with the Spurs for a veteran minimum of about $1.5 million after opting out of $12 million with Indiana Pacers
  • Starting line-up for the Spurs… Look out this is brilliance right here
  • Aldridge, Duncan, Leonard, Parker and Danny Green

    Signed a two-year, $5.7 million deal, with a player option
  • Tim Duncan, back for a 19th
  • Gregg Popovich, back for a 20th season as head coach

Til the next time,

Join the basketball craze. Follow your home town’s team. Or just follow a team you like who showcases some of the best athletes in the world. I have followed the San Antonio Spurs since I have lived there my entire life and I have loved watching the NBA Finals and playoffs. There is nothing like witnessing the game 7 matchup between two teams whom are competing for a championship title. It’s electrifying to witness history with family and friends. JOIN THE ACTION.

There is no such thing as a perfect basketball player, and I don’t believe there is only one greatest player either- Michael Jordan
