For the last few years, Springfield College Communications/Sports Journalism (COSJ) professor Kyle Belanger has worked Radio Row at the Super Bowl. While this is a tremendous opportunity for his own freelance career, Belanger focuses on turning his own opportunities into those for his students.

The Springfield College Office of Communications recently got a chance to catch up with our own Charley Casserly (‘71, G’72), TV sportscaster and former NFL executive with the Washington Redskins and Houston Texans. Casserly has made a name for himself in the sports world and credits the lessons learned at Springfield College, as well as raw determination, for his success.
From NEWMAC championships to his career in sports and event management, Eric Stalsburg (‘12) credits Springfield College and its supportive faculty and coaches for instilling in him the qualities he needed in order to get where he is today: General Manager of a state-of-the-art indoor soccer facility in the heart of NYC.
