Several members of the DBP football team spent the afternoon yesterday with Brandon London, former NFL player with the NY Giants and current on-camera correspondent with the organization, instructing our student-athletes on public speaking methods in front of the camera, and how to create an image and brand for themselves.
“These types of experiences allow our players to explore different avenues off the field and give them advice and techniques on dealing with media,” said head coach Dan Sabella. “It teaches them to be smart about what they say and the content they put on social media. It also gives them the opportunity to be as well-rounded in as many areas as possible. We really appreciated Brandon taking the time to be here today. Our guys really enjoyed it.”
As part of the afternoon’s program, the student-athletes broke into groups, role-playing as a moderator and panel members, to debate a topic. London, who won a Super Bowl with the Giants and is also a tv personality on Daily Blast Live, coached the boys during their presentations, which helps to teach the students how to discuss a topic and how to give one’s opinion. “You have to be a good listener, not just on the football field but in life,” London said. “Learn from other people’s mistakes, and respect everyone’s opinions. And find your own niche.”
The students understood the importance of the exercise. “Being able to speak to people in front of the camera and in everyday situations is really helpful,” said Amori Francis ‘24. “It’s important to have the correct facts and methods when you talk about certain topics.”
