Default Spencer Larsen Enrolls In NFL Business Program

http://cbs4denver.com/sports/Spencer...2.1496600.html


Spencer Larsen from the Denver Broncos is among 77 NFL players who have enrolled in the NFL Business Management and Entrepreneurial Program at Harvard Business School

Larsen enrolled in the program, which is an NFL-NFLPA initiative to help players prepare for life after the NFL. He joined CBS4 Sports Insiders Vic Lombardi and Gary Miller on their ESPN Radio 1600 show Monday morning and talked about it.

"I've talked to some guys who have done it. It's a great time to network and you just learn a lot of valuable lessons about starting your own business or working in real estate," Larsen said.

The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania also offers the program. Both schools offer executive education activities.

"A lot of it is group studies and case studies and kind of talking with other guys and getting their ideas," Larsen said. "It's more of a conversational-type thing."

Players apply to attend the Program. Enrollment criteria includes level of education; professional business experience; interest in starting, owning, or managing a business; and leadership and community involvement.

Le Kevin Smith and Brandon Gorin from the Broncos are also participating in the program.

There have been 502 players who have participated in the program since its inception in 2005.

Harvard Business School will hold a program for players from Feb. 15-19. The Wharton School's session runs from Feb. 16-19.

Good for Spencer Larsen. He seems to truly be a throwback player who gives it his all each and every week.

no way. he is a guy who McDaniels will grow to love. a guy who can play multiple positions, goes all out every single snap, does anything you ask him to do, is a very team oriented guy. he is a guy who may never become a star in the league, but he is a good football player that can have a really long career

Personally I love the dude. I just don't know if he has enough to stick especially in the 3-4.

I think the fact that Larsen was inserted into the lineup immediately after a long injury layoff tells you what McDaniels thinks of him. He's not going anywhere. He'll be a 3-way contributor again next season.

I like how they brought up real estate. It seems like former NFL players land in real estate, car dealers or owning construction companies where their name can help land them business.

Larsen will stay. I've noticed Larsen used as the primary fullback in Denver's offense (when they use one).

My question is this: How in the world does the NFLPA provide a Harvard degree, and only 77 players enroll?

It said you have to apply. Most NFL players... most people, actually, aren't smart enough to go to Harvard.

Also the article didn't specify if it was a cert., a BA, or an MBA. It might just be one of those adult education things that Harvard (and other schools like DU) do - that really don't mean anything.

But the contacts alone they will develop and mentoring would be worth the time.

Plus you have a better shot at getting into Harvard's MBA program if you have succeeded in the past with Harvard's programs.

he may not fit the bill as a starter in the 3-4 alignment, but as a legit special teams contributor, and as our starting FB(in the rare times we used a FB) he is a solid contributor to this team

either way, if McDaniels doesn't want him and waives him, there will be numerous teams in the league that will put in a claim on him. he may not fit here, but he will catch on somewhere else and have a long career.
