As a student at the University of New Haven, Collin Hill ’18 immersed himself in sports in and out of the classroom. He says the David A. Beckerman Recreation Center was one of his favorite places on campus – a place he frequented for work and play.

While working for ChargerREC, the University’s campus recreation department, Hill officiated flag football, basketball, and softball, and he was later promoted, serving as a Rec Sports supervisor and building supervisor.

Hill considers "Up ‘til Dawn," the University’s annual fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, to be his favorite memory of his involvement with the Beckerman Center.

"The energy was electric all night," he explains. "We did not back down from the challenge of raising as much money as we could. Through my experiences at ChargerREC, I have met some of my best friends and mentors."

One of Hill’s colleagues at ChargerREC was his twin brother, Logan Hill ’19. Logan also enjoyed the responsibility of working as a building supervisor.

Passionate about sports, the brothers were both members of the University’s Chargers football team, as well as the University’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

"I loved interacting with the other students I met at the University," said Logan. "I enjoyed learning from students from all different backgrounds."

Logan says he also has fond memories of being coached during mock interviews at the University by professionals in the field. These experiences enabled him to network with influential industry leaders.

"We worked with executives and hiring managers from Octagon, a leading sports and entertainment agency," said Logan. "The constructive criticism they gave us about our interviewing and resumes are takeaways that I still draw from."

Today he is an account manager for memberships in the department of membership services and retention for the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League, and he is looking to become a star on the business side of the franchise.

Meanwhile, Collin has also scored a position that enables him to immerse himself in the world of professional sports. He works for Harris & Blitzer Sports Entertainment as a sales associate for the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association and the New Jersey Devils of the NHL. Like his brother, he has his eye on an even bigger goal.

"I want to get into a leadership or management position in a professional sports organization," said Collin. "My goal is to, one day, be a president or a CEO of a team."
