Suits For Success x Gameplan University (More Than An Athlete Series)
Suits for Success collaborated with Game Plan University to mentor the top high school football players in the region on the importance of education, and not just being productive on the field but also off the field. The three day series, More Than An Athlete, comprised of instruction regarding personal finance, branding and social media awareness, public speaking, interview techniques, and mental health. The student athletes were also afforded the opportunity to get fitted for a new suit, shirt and tie that they would eventually get to wear to a dinner at the upscale steakhouse Vic & Antony’s where we hosted an etiquette training. We were fortunate to have College Football Hall of Famer and native Houstonian, Vince Young, be our guest speaker. Our goal was to impress upon each student athlete that it will be their education and intellect that will take them further once their playing career is over. As such, Suits for Success will continue to put a strong emphasis on preparing student athletes for the real world with the understanding that to get to where they ultimately want to go in life, they should use sports but don’t let sports use them.
