Redifer Ends NCAA Career in Sports Forum – Texas A&M Athletics

INDIANAPOLIS – Texas A&M Riding Haley Redifer recently completed the annual NCAA Sports Career Forum.

“My time at the Career in Sports Forum was a life-changing experience,” Redifer said. “I had the chance to connect with professionals and other athletes while learning how to pursue my professional career in athletics. I was able to learn so much and I will never forget my time at the National Offices of the NCAA!”

The event is an educational program that brings together 200 selected NCAA student-athletes to learn about and explore potential careers in sports, particularly varsity athletics. During the three-day forum, Redifer had networking opportunities with fellow student-athletes as well as professionals from campus, conference, and national levels of collegiate athletics.

Along with networking, Redifer attended panels where speakers discussed topics such as practical approaches to job hunting in sport, personal branding, developing a career plan and self-management as a professional in the sports industry.

Redifer recently graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce and remains at Aggieland to pursue a Masters in Sports Management. The Barboursville, Va. native plans to work in collegiate athletics, specifically in student-athlete engagement and development.
