CHARLESTON, S.C. – College of Charleston junior men’s tennis player Josh Record has been selected from a pool of over 1,100 applicants to attend the prestigious 2014 NCAA Career in Sports Forum.
The Career in Sports Forum (CSF) is an annual educational forum hosted by the NCAA that brings together 200 selected student-athletes for four days to learn and explore potential careers in sports, with the primary focus on intercollegiate athletics. The CSF is designed to assist student-athletes in charting their career paths, to give them the opportunity to network and to learn from current athletics professionals.
“Athletics is something that I’ve grown up with,” said Record, whose mother is the director of athletics at UNC Greensboro. “I am a student-athlete here at The College, my mom has been an athletics administrator my entire life and my dad is a tennis coach, so in that sense, sports have always played a huge role in my life. I’m really excited about the opportunity to head to Indianapolis, learn, network and hopefully bring a few good ideas back with me.”
Record heads to the forum following a solid sophomore season, where under head coach Jay Bruner, he claimed the doubles crown at the Southern Intercollegiate in September and helped the Cougars make it all the way to the conference finals in their inaugural campaign in the Colonial Athletic Association.
This year’s CSF will be held June 5-8 at the NCAA national office in Indianapolis, Ind.
