I’m heading back to the University of Southern Mississippi tomorrow to present my Social Media Boot Camp to students there. Here’s the media release for the event.
It’s always great to get back to Hattiesburg, a city where I spent four years of my life. Southern Miss will always be special to me, so to be able to go back there and help today’s student-athletes navigate the media/social media waters is rewarding.
I did four separate sessions over five hours on Monday — volleyball, men’s basketball, softball and football. As a bonus, I ran into former Southern Miss quarterback Lee Roberts, who played the position when I was in college and working at the local TV station. Lee now is the color analyst for the Southern Miss football radio broadcasts. I remember people close to the team saying he was the best practice quarterback they’d seen in a long time and all he needed was a shot. Well, ineffective quarterback play gave him his shot and he only turned into arguably the second-best quarterback in Southern Miss history, behind that guy who wore number four.
