who is that contact? i saw some internship opportunity with the blue jackets but it didnt sound that great. since i already have an internship this summer, the main thing im trying to do is establish some sort of connection/relationship with people and try to get a good job offer for next summer.

Maybe you should strike up a close friendship with a promising athlete at your school.
Unfortunately there aren't many where we go to school
I don't know Longy, I know hockey at least has quiet a few...Ryan Jones, Guerin, Zatkoff, ect...Our last what 2 or 3 QB's have gotten Superbowl rings...and we can turn out some decent WRs...so...you could always start there if you wanted.
But the minoring in Spanish is huge, theres such a need for bilingual workers out there, maybe contact some organizations down in Florida or Out West in California. Never hurts to try.
Also you might want to try contact the Columbus Blue Jackets, theres at least one contact, I can think of off the top of my head thats affiliated with them that reside in Oxford.
Haha I was the one who made the post about the last two QBs, It's actually our last 2, not 2 out of 3 Ben and then Betts. Obviously we have a really good hockey program, I'm sam's roomate and I'm not entirely sure he's into hockey enough to want to go that route, but I could be wrong. Our figure skating team isn't bad either
True its world class, but have you heard of the Davidges by chance? Bill Davidge is one of the head brodcasters for CBJ and does lots of things inside the organization is my understanding, lives out by the country clubish.

**i know this is really random but i might as well try
