One inappropriate remark on Twitter or one risqué photo posted on Facebook could potentially ruin a student’s chances at getting to the next level. Time and time again, horror stories surface about professional, collegiate and amateur athletes whose momentary lapse in judgment on social media resulted in a loss of a scholarship, a rescinded contract, discipline from an athletic governing body, or even getting cut from a team. Companies today will review a student’s social media feed before hiring. Knowing the most appropriate ways to use social media as a student and athlete is more important than ever.

Super Bowl Champion Josh Miller and his sports entertainment company have developed the solution to the social media problem. Josh has a unique perspective as both a former professional athlete and a current member of the sports news media. Prior to becoming a radio host on Pittsburgh’s premiere sports radio station, 93.7 The Fan, Josh was an NFL punter for 13 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the New England Patriots, and the Tennessee Titans. Seeing the corrosive power of social media from multiple perspectives lead Josh to team up with a group of marketing experts in order to offer social media training to young athletes and students. In his time on the radio, Josh has reported about athletes getting in trouble on social media. Josh and the progressive Pittsburgh marketing firm Shift Collaborative have built a 60-minute seminar that uses pop culture references, useful tips and scary past examples to teach your students and athletes to use the social media channels properly.
