If you don't love what you are doing, why are you doing it? - Leon Costello, Athletic Director, Montana State (E.036)

podcast Nov 22, 2022
After Leon Costello graduated high school, he played basketball and studied exercise science at Loras College.
Realizing he didn’t want to work in medicine, he got his masters in sports administration at Western Illinois University.
Wanting to make a meaningful impact on students, Leon chose a career in college athletics over a career with a professional team.  Today, he loves his job as the Athletic Director at Montana State and credits his success to networking, personal connections, and sacrifice.
Key Takeaway— Sports careers are highly competitive and demand sacrifice. Leon’s first job as a university intern barely paid the bills, and had extremely long hours.
