Compliance Speaks at Football Camp
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The Bethune-Cookman University Office of Athletics Compliance spoke to local youth on Wednesday evening at the Bruce McNorton 8th Annual Free Football Clinic at the Midtown Cultural and Educational Center.
Under the direction of Robert “Tony” O’Neal (Associate Athletic Director for Compliance) and Reginald Thomas (Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance), the Bethune-Cookman staff was joined by Krystal Collins, Janetha Leslie and Juavahr Nathan in speaking about future NCAA compliance rules and regulations to the youth campers. The seminar introduced athletes, from all sports, to the mandatory requirements for the student-athlete to become eligible to receive college scholarships.
The camp was hosted by former NFL performer and current Pittsburgh Steelers scout Bruce McNorton. It was designed for youth ages eight and up, and was a free service provided to all in and around Volusia County.
The B-CU Office of Athletics Compliance staff has spoken on several occasions to local high schools, including Seabreeze and Spruce Creek, about rules changes that will ultimately affect their possibility of participating in intercollegiate athletics.
