Nyquist '94 Tabbed as "40 Under 40" by Sports Business Journal

March 21, 2011

Eric Nyquist, a 1994 Carleton graduate, was recently tabbed as one of the top 40 sports business professionals under the age of 40 by Street & Smith's Sports Business Journal. Nyquist tells SBJ how he wrote thousands of letters to executives in the sports industry, trying to break into the business. His persistence paid off when former Minnesota Vikings executive Roger Headrick recommended him for a NFL position, which later led to jobs with MLB's Chicago White Sox and now NASCAR.
