1. Introduce yourself to the class and briefly characterize your interest in sport. Also identify an issue in sport and society that particularly interests you.
Hi, My name is Noah Matz and I am a graduating senior majoring in Marketing. I am interested in several sports. I am particularly interested in collegiate and professional football. I played football for roughly 10 years while in middle school through high school.
The issue that interests me in sports is that of the monopoly that the money craving BCS has over the division 1 schools in college football. The BCS is a popularity contest and the teams with the largest fan following are promoted higher in the top 25 in order to make more money for the BCS and its schools.
2. Identify someone that you could consider a role model, not necessarily an athlete.
I consider President Obama to be a role model. I consider him to be a role model because he shows black people, white, people, poor, rich, and anyone in between that anything is possible when hard work and determination are used to get what is desired. He is also a great role model to the youth of America because he is proof that attending school and studying diligently will help them tremendously on their journey through life.
3. Identify the values, virtues, rights and responsibilities, important consequences that they make happen and how those relate to you.
The important values to me are sportsmanship, being a good Christian, and being ethical in business.
4. If you were to be a role model to others, what aspects of your life would you want them to emulate? Why?
If I were a role model to others I would want them to emulate my relationship with god, good sportsmanship, and an effort to better the community in which they live.
