“Being involved with the NFL was an incredible experience,” he said. “It combined my love of football with my potential future career and I was able to experience a lot of amazing things between the practices, press conferences and preseason games.”

Reardon said his Quinnipiac professors prepared him for the experience, saying, “A lot of the reporting, interviewing and writing side of the internship came easy to me because of things I've done in the classroom and in student media.”


“The experience changed my perspective because I was able to witness so many different things up close and personal,” he recalls. “Just seeing how talented all these players are in person brings it to a whole new level. I was also able to see how choreographed each NFL practice and game is. Players are on such a strict schedule; it is remarkable how they're able to balance everything.”

The difficult part of the experience for Reardon will actually be during the Super Bowl.


“I will be watching the game with a few friends,” he said. “It's actually a tough situation because I am from Massachusetts so I am a life-long Patriots fan, but the Rams were my squad over the summer. I'll definitely be rooting hard for the Patriots, but losing to the Rams wouldn't hurt quite as bad.”
