There are no typical days when you are a Sports Information Director. There are some givens -- you handle the stats, game stories and notes on Game Day. But you have to be able to take pictures and teach a student how to do the ame thing. You have to be able to answer media, parent, coach and student inquiries. You have to be flexible to pick up a task if needed -- often on a short deadline.
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing it all come together in such a way that nobody knew the effort it took. Also, when you see a student graduate and get a great job, it is like watching your child grow up.
The worst part is the weekend and night hours. There is also the knowledge that some people who don't understand what you do will never be pleased. You simply accept that and move on.
