Second Straight Year Named on the Awards List
ORLANDO, FLORIDA (UCF Knights) – For a second straight year, UCF Vice President and Director of Athletics Danny White has been named to the Sports Business Daily/Journal Forty Under 40 Awards list.
Winners on this year’s list come from nearly every sector of the sports business. They are agents, marketers, entrepreneurs, team owners and presidents, lawyers, athletic directors and more. They are the industry’s best and the brightest, and leaders in their respective organizations. According to the SBD/J web site, the Forty Under 40 Awards is an annual celebration of the best young talent in sports business.
“I’m honored and humbled to be recognized on this prestigious list again this year,” White said.
“Thank you to Sports Business Daily/Journal for recognizing what we’ve accomplished over the past year. We couldn’t be as successful as we are without amazing support from all over our campus and our community. Thank you to our president John Hitt for all his support and thanks to our amazing student-athletes, coaches, staff, donors and fans. Without everyone pulling in the same direction, this sort of recognition wouldn’t happen.”
White is one of just three on the list to come from the ranks of collegiate athletics. He is joined by collegiate athletics colleagues Josh Whitman (Illinois Director of Athletics) and Nina King (Duke University Deputy Director of Athletics). White is also the only repeat honoree from the 2017 class.
On April 18, 2018, following the CAA World Congress of Sports, the 40 winners, their guests and industry leaders will be treated to a gala dinner and awards program at the J.W. Marriott Los Angeles, L.A. LIVE.
