Centenary College of Louisiana Athletics and the team at Athlete Network are excited to announce their partnership with the goal of engaging all former Ladies and Gents student-athletes with available services and resources. The partnership will launch the Centenary College Athlete Network, a branded and customized technology platform to organize, promote, and track the programs and services offered to all current and former student-athletes.
With athletics dating back to 1908, Centenary currently competes in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, and is the first NCAA DIII program to select Athlete Network to power its customized network.
"With the branded network technology, we've identified a digital hub that allows current and former Centenary student-athletes to connect, engage, network, and identify post-graduate opportunities. We are striving to provide a transformational experience and prepare our student-athletes for life after graduation, this a strategic step in the right direction."
- Marcus Manning, Director of Athletics and Recreation at Centenary College of Louisiana
Along with providing cutting edge data insights and reporting to athletic administrators, the technology solution will immediately provide the tools to expand career placement services, offer robust mentoring programs, and enhance the alumni relations.
"Among the many strengths that exist in this newly formed relationship, the Branded Network platform provides a resource for both current and former student-athletes that will aid them in life beyond their sport. I believe this will be an opportunity for the entire Centenary Athletic Community to participate in something that will enrich their lives for years to come. Our partnership with Athlete Network is very exciting because the benefits offered will not only span generations of student-athletes, it covers all sports and all divisions, allowing us to level the playing field."
- Rob Rubel, Centenary Athletic Club Board Chair
"Centenary values keeping their former student-athletes involved and engaged, and is committed to advancing support and communication with their athletes during the transition to the workforce. Through their network, athletic administrators will not only be able to offer all services in one convenient location, but use data analytics to track the utilization of those services ensuring a beneficial relationship is maintained with their athletes for life."
- Brett Fuller, VP of Partnerships for Athlete Network
