Meet Rob

Rob Smith 2

Name: Robert “Rob” Smith
Major: Communication Studies
Graduation Date: May 2018
Hometown: Sterling, VA
Internship Site: Production Intern with the Washington Redskins/Redskins Broadcast Network
How I found my internship: “So I found my internship through a connection with the team. A family friend of mine knew someone who worked in the department and got me in the door. From there, I stayed in touch with the organization and eventually was given the position.”
Memory/something I learned in my first week: “One thing I’ve picked up on in the two weeks I’ve been here is that athletes aren’t as different as the rest of us think they are. They put their pants on every morning one leg at a time just like the rest of us. With that in mind, the first few days it was hard not being able to ask for pictures or autographs around the facility when I saw my favorite players.”
