On Saturday, August 13, 2016, Big County Preps will be holding its Teen Summit event. This is a conference for student-athletes within the area to come out, participate in interactive workshops and listen to various seminars. The goal of the organization is to provide these student-athletes with the details they will need during their transition from high school into college and the pros and cons.
The seminar will detail the truths about the world of NCAA recruiting, how to deal with the media, professionalism on and off the field, and alcohol abuse, something that is far too common on U.S. campuses. The seminar will feature Katherine Smith of Bright House Sports Network (Media Etiquette), Kevin Snead, the University of South Florida Senior Associate Vice President and Health Dean of College of Pharmacy (Professionalism), and Rob Cassidy, the Southeast Region Scouting Director for Rivals.com, and Corey Bender, Scout.com’s Florida Recruiting Analyst (NCAA Recruiting).
From Vanguard Attorneys, managing partner Elizabeth Munro will be the workshop instructor for the alcohol abuse portion of the seminar. She will discuss the challenges that these young athletes may face as they enter a different environment and how alcohol abuse, particularly drinking and driving, can impact their futures.
