Over the few weeks, we will introduce you to our new interns for this season. Let’s meet or first intern, Chevy Cawlfield, who is the Ticket Sales & Marketing Intern.
Q: Where are you from?
Chevy: I am from Lubbock, Texas, born and raised! Home of Texas Tech University and cotton, lots and lots of cotton!
Q: Who is your Alma Mater? What is your degree in?
Chevy: I recently graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor’s in Sport Management and a minor in Communication Studies. Long live the Matadors! I was also recently accepted into graduate school through Western Kentucky University for a Master’s in Sport Administration, so along with being a Red Raider, I am also a Hilltopper!
Q: What will you be responsible for while working at the Valero Alamo Bowl?
Chevy: So, I will be responsible for Ticket Sales and Marketing promotions and sponsorships for the 25th Anniversary Valero Alamo Bowl! Speaking of which, tickets are on sale now, so give me a call at (210) 704-6387 and secure your seats today!
Q: What part of this experience are you most excited about?
Chevy: I have been fortunate enough to be able to volunteer for the Valero Alamo Bowl for the last three years during Bowl Week. So, to be a part of the 25th Anniversary of the Valero Alamo Bowl is very special to me. I enjoy history, so to look back at the years past and see the bowl today is really something special.
Q: Where do you see yourself in five years?
Chevy: I see myself working in sales or development for a university athletic department or professional team. Within the next five years, I see myself working up through the school or organization.
Q: What advice do you have for perspective students who may want to pursue a career in Ticket Sales?
Chevy: I think first and foremost, getting experience early is such a huge factor. Especially in the sports industry. Get experience in your athletic department at your university. Look at the school job postings or even ask professors for a contact to see if anything is available. Don’t be afraid to volunteer either if there is no position available. Also, just be ready to hit the ground running. There will be mistakes made when you first start out, but don’t let that keep you from trying. It helps you learn and grow as a professional.
Q: What is your favorite thing about San Antonio so far?
Chevy: I would have to say that my favorite thing about San Antonio is how true San Antonio is to its roots. History is so important to this city and I really enjoy learning everything that I can! With the Tricentennial right around the corner, there is a lot to learn about this great city!
Favorite food? Texas BBQ
Favorite show to binge watch on Netflix? Stranger Things
Favorite holiday? Christmas
Favorite athlete? Earl Campbell
Favorite sports memory? I would say that my favorite memory would be when the Red Raider’s baseball team made it to the College Baseball World Series for the first time. Getting to see Dan Law Field host a Regional and a Super Regional was unreal. Then to see them make it to the College Baseball World Series in the same season was awesome. All three of which were a first for the Red Raider Baseball Team.
