BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) - Charlie Batch and Derrick Dockery are among 23 current and former NFL players who will take part in a sports journalism symposium next month.
Brady Poppinga, Brendon Ayanbadejo and Erin Henderson are other current players who will attend May 13-16 at Bowling Green State University.
The program will focus on improving each player's writing skills for print, broadcast and digital media. They will ``cover'' a minor league game of the Toledo Mud Hens, which will include a mock press conference. Players will write and record their own radio commentary as part of another exercise.
The boot camp will have ``both highly skilled professors and alumni teaching interactive sessions and providing excellent instruction in the fast-changing sports media industry,'' says Dr. Terry Rentner, director of the BGSU School of Media and Communications.
