Candidate Statement

My goal is to continue to help the athletic program and university meet multiple challenges in our current unusual times. I have significant knowledge and understanding of intercollegiate athletics in general and UNC specifically. Faculty Athletic Representative to the NAIA at another university early in my career, I have been closely associated with UNC athletics for over 50 years - having been a student at UNC for three degrees. My area, Exercise & Sport Science, has foci on athletic performance, injury treatment and rehabilitation, and administration of intercollegiate athletic programs. I have taught students in all three areas, including athletes, for over four decades and have been involved in multiple research projects in those areas. My grandson, a Carolina graduate-May 2019, was a member of the UNC football team for four years.
