LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech junior (redshirt) Danielle Matthews will participate in a four-day event to explore future careers in sports, with the primary focus on collegiate athletics, at the NCAA Career in Sports Forum in Indianapolis, Ind., in May.

The program, which is presented to only a selected group of student-athletes each year, uses a dual track system to allow participants to examine the key functions of a coach or administrator within sports. Foundational skills such as communication, networking, recruiting, managing culture, transitioning and budgeting will be covered as part of the curriculum.

The Forum will be conducted in a two year rotation for NCAA sponsored sports, with the inaugural Forum open to student-athletes who have interest in coaching the sports of: Baseball, Basketball, Bowling, Football, Gymnastics, Lacrosse, Soccer, Softball, Swimming and Diving, Track and Field, Volleyball, and Wrestling. The administrator track will cover the areas of: Academics, Compliance, Facilities, Life Skills, Marketing and Promotions and Sports Information.

Matthews, who is a top student and who has been active in the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee during her career as a Red Raider, is the only Tech student-athlete to be selected for the program this year.
