One of the best parts of doing what I do is to be able to attend events that can make a difference in a young person’s life. Today the Miami Dolphins hosted their 6th annual High School Media Day.
It’s a day that saw over 100 local high school students from Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. It gives the high school players and coaches the opportunity to speak to local and national media.
In speaking to Shawn Cerra, the Director of Athletics and Student Activities for Broward County Schools, the Miami Dolphins are able to give the players an excellent opportunity that allows the players to improve their communication skills. This experience will definitely help at the next level of their career, be it on or off the field.
Many of these kids haven’t had the chance to speak to the media, Cerra said. At High School Media Day, they are given a chance to do just that; experience what it’s like to speak in front of the media and develop those skills. The more chances that they have to speak in front of people, and more specifically the media is important.
Today we have over 100 high school football programs joining us for HS Media Day ahead of the 2018 season. #MDHSMediaDay
