This weekend saw a very proud moment for the Sports MBA Program, as well as San Diego State University Athletics. Six members were inducted into the Aztec Hall of Fame, including our own La’Roi Glover. Inducted along with La’Roi were Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, Doug Harvey, Tonette Dyer, John Hyden, and Fred Miller.
A product of Point Loma High School in San Diego, La’Roi was a star player at SDSU before moving on to a successful 13-year career in the NFL. That career included six Pro-Bowls and an All-Pro selection after leading the NFL in sacks in 2000. While attending classes in the Sports MBA program, La’Roi was given the opportunity to become the Director of Player Programs with the St. Louis Rams.
Despite his departure, La’Roi will always be a member of the 2011 Sports MBA class. We are beyond proud of his achievements and his current position with the Rams. La’Roi will certainly be a big player within the National Football League for years to come.
