I was responsible for...
Assist the coaches with help on cleaning, taking the athletes through warm ups, set up and break down of equipment, read required texts that were assigned to the interns and be on time everyday.
I will never forget...
Getting the opportunity to work with the incoming freshman (rookies) on the football team. This really gave me the amamIng opportunity to be hands on and teach a lot of the fundamentals of exercises.
Advice for others...
Make sure that you are able to support yourself while out here in the Bay Area. Cost of living is very high.
