Program 15 National Events: What They’re Saying (Jeremy Booth, CEO)

May 29, 2017

As part of a weekly series of stories leading up to the Program 15 New Balance Future Stars Series upcoming national events in Houston, FutureStarsSeries.com spoke with Jeremy Booth, CEO of Program 15 and the New Balance Future Stars Series.

“What has me excited is a couple different things.  Number one, this is a culmination of the next step.  A lot of work's been put in with everybody who's been involved and bought in.  These events this summer are the next phase; we had our first combines, and now we have these.  Secondly, I'm excited for all the partnerships that have bought into this to be together in one place.  That's good, that only helps players and helps the game and the way we're trying to do it.  And the third reason is because you get to see who's for real.  Not just the players, who we know are talented, but the ones we don't know, and the people who will really live up to the things they've been saying for the past eight months.  You also find out who doesn't live up to that and who — as we go forward in this movement and do things to change the game and further things like integrity and ethics — doesn't belong there as well.  I'm excited for all those things to come together.”

Stay tuned in the next few days for Jeremy's thoughts on the highly anticipated international weekend in August…
