“When trying to figure out how I could get my foot into the door even more with scouting, I stumbled across Mr. Kibble on LinkedIn at the beginning of 2020 while I was interning with the Jacksonville Jaguars in Ticket Sales/Member Experience. When reading about how this event provides an opportunity to gain verified numbers with laser testing for collegiate athletes and current/former professional athletes, I was extremely intrigued. Not only did the National Scouting Combine provide me with the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals, meet people with ties to the NFL/CFL, and work at a top-notch facility, but it also provided me with the tools and resources that have allowed me to progress in my career as an evaluator of talent. Mr. Kibble takes care of all of his interns/employees and treats you like family. You won’t regret working for the National Scouting Combine and I can promise you, if you’re determined, driven, and work hard, you’ll gain a lot from this experience. I can’t thank Mr. Kibble enough for what he’s done for me with my development.”​

“I interned with Beyond Sports Network during my sophomore year at Coastal Carolina University. Back then I was just a bright-eyed and bushy-tailed want-to-be journalist not really thinking about the doors that BSN would eventually open for me. I was able to interview and share countless stories of aspiring professional athletes and handled BSN’s Twitter account. Again, I didn’t fully grasp that this would help me in the long run and that it was truly the turning point of my journalistic career. My published work on BSN’s website was the start of my writing portfolio. After my BSN internship, I landed another at Fox Sports Radio in LA working on Rob Parker and Chris Broussard’s show and even made some Tweets for Colin Cowherd’s Twitter account. By my senior year of college, I was sideline reporting for ESPN 3 and received a shout-out from Sam Ponder of NFL Countdown following my first live broadcast. Today, I am an NFL journalist for Heavy Inc. covering the Atlanta Falcons and a co-host for an online sports betting show. However, I wouldn’t be here without Jimmy Kibble and Beyond Sports Network for being the first to give me a shot at chasing a childhood dream of mine.”
